While his music career has steadily been on the rise in the last few years, Africa’s most authoritative online news portal, www.myemag.net can report that the home front of Kingsley Okonkwo, KC of the defunct KC-Presh group may not be enjoying marital bliss like many thought.
An insider who maintained that the singer is still having it good with his former fiancée, Ebube Nwagbo, told this website that KC has been responsible for all the posh cars Ebube has been brandishing for some time now. From the Hummer 3 to her latest fleet, Porsche Panamera which is rated at 18 million naira or there about.
Aside stating it in a recent interview that his wife and kids are past tense in his life, the Limpopo crooner also said that till date, he doesn’t know their whereabouts. Meanwhile, our private investigations revealed that the marriage crashed a few months ago and that while KC was still married he was simultaneously enjoying a private romance with Ebube Nwagbo, a reason many believe contributed immensely to why his marriage crashed. Although, this might not be a surprise to many, as they have been spotted on several occasions in compromising positions. Unlike his younger brother, Emeka Okonkwo, aka E-Money, KC stopped stepping out to events with his wife for over a year ago, but prefers the company of Ebube whom many suggest may move in with him soon. For the benefit of doubts, in 2012 when KC performed for the first time his hit single Okpekete at AY show, hours after, he was seen together with Ebube Nwagbo and some of her friends at the after party of the event which held at Austin Jay Jay Okocha’s now rested Club 10, situated at Saka Tinubu, where they partied hard till early in the morning when they both left in different cars. KC who was travelling outside the country that morning headed to the airport his black 4Matic 500 car, while Ebube alongside two of her friends followed in a gold colour Honda End of Discussion. Another major event they both attended was Encomium Black and White ball which held in Lekki this year. Where KC staged a fantastic performance. They were both seen around each other all through the event. Informed sources said they spent that night together in an unknown hotel on the Island.
Speaking exclusively to our reporter in Lagos, a source in Kc’s camp who chose to remain anonymous, revealed that his wife, Ijeoma was aware of his romantic feelings for Ebube which was very conspicuous and kept warning him of the possible danger it could pose on their marriage, but he didn’t listen.
As things stand, KC has already started denying that he was once married. In another recent interview he granted a reporter in Lagos last weekend, the crooner said, “I have never married before, the person that got married was my brother but people thought I was the one”.
Well, just in case you don’t know, KC proposed to his wife, Ijeoma Okonkwo (nee Oduah) in a hot air balloon in Dubai in 2010. They came back and had their traditional wedding in Anambra where he hails from, and a court wedding followed at Apapa Registry witnessed by his younger brother, Emeka, his wife and KC’s former label mate Presh. Shortly after they had their white wedding. The union was allegedly blessed with two kids, a boy and a girl which they had in quick successions.
