Ngozi Ezeonu’s Ex-Husband Reacts To Daughter’s Wedding

Edwin Ezeonu, the ex-husband of Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu, has made a shocking revelation about his daughter's wedding.

Ezeonu, who did not attend his daughter's wedding, made the revelation in a recent interview, where he stated that the wedding which held on February 15, 2020, in Delta State was not legitimate as far as the Igbo tradition was concerned.

“I’m a real son of the soil in Igboland and I am knowledgeable enough about Igbo traditional marriage,” he stated.

“In Anambra State where I come from, a woman does not and has no right whatsoever to give out a fellow woman’s hand in marriage. It is abomination and taboo. As such, Ngozi Denis Ikpelue has no legitimate right and authority to give out my daughter, Ogechukwu’s hand in marriage.

“As long as I am concerned and also the entire family of Ezeonu and his kindred are concerned, Ogechukwu is not married. What happened in Asaba, Delta State on February 15, 2020, was a movie shoot!”

Recalling how his ex-wife, the actress, left her matrimonial home in 2013, he said:

“I came back home one day from work and met an empty house, without any prior notice. As I got home that fateful day, my landlady told me that Ngozi had packed out of the house, taking the children along with her. A few weeks before that, I had insinuated that she was putting up a new apartment. I summoned her and warned her against dividing the family. But she never listened."

He has also banned his ex-wife from using his surname as she is divorced from him.

“I gave Ngozi all the supports and encouragements she needed to boost her career as a seasoned actress, yet she never valued all my efforts. She also never contributed a dime to the upkeep of the house and wellbeing of the children. Even after they left, I still catered for my kids: school fees, foodstuff and all. I’m devastated that my only daughter would do this to me. Ngozi should also desist from using my surname. We are divorced,” he said.
