Nigerian gospel artiste, Queen Ure Okezie, has parted ways with her second husband, Pastor Silas Briyork Newman, Yes International Magazine reports.
Ure was initially married to singer turned pastor, Soul E, before they went their separate ways. She has now revealed that her second marriage crashed, less than a year after their wedding.
According to her:
“Most of you saw my wedding photos barely a year ago, I was happy, I thought that finally God had answered my prayers, a widowed pastor with 4 very young lovely kids, so Wifey and Mummy all at once.
I packed all my load and relocated to Gwagwalada. We didn’t date, I took the chance based on recommendation as I was 45 going to 46. The guy showed me nwii as in.
If not that my father drummed it in my ear that I’m a Queen, I would have thought I was an outcaste, every month he would tell me to pack my things and go that I’m not submissive, that a good wife will submit all her money and her body.
I was submitting the body o but he wanted the thing everyday. I was not submitting the money but I was willingly and generously looking after everyone as he didn’t have any source of income. (The Church was new).
You’re wondering why I would marry a man with 4 children that doesn’t have shishi? The good values we were brought up with hasn’t left us, some of us still believe in love and small beginnings, I wasn’t desperate not at all.
Anyway onye awusa chirim onu n’ala and finally “broke the marriage” when I insisted I wouldn’t make him a director of my company nor a signatory to the account yet.
He may not be such a terrible man, just a man with a different view of marriage from mine. This was my 2nd marriage. I will now come and kill myself?
To say that I’m not heart broken I’ll be lying but to think that is the end of the world mbanu, for what? Instead of suicide, I’ll kukuma do wedding number 3.
I turned 47 last August …no child, no husband, doesn’t sound good but I’m alive and healthy, that’s a testimony. For the records I never cheated on him, never contemplated it.”
