“My husband was eight years older than me”, but the moment we got married, If I say you dey craze, he would say I was disrespecting him,” She said.


When Nedu asked whether the complaint over joke she cracked towards her former husband was why she left the marriage, she said, “I was bringing more of the money. Today I’m taking care of my son like nobody exists around me, and it is not easy. It is not funny. If had known would have gone for money and not love.
