On Tuesday 7th September 2021, Uzoamaka Ohiri, the ‘ex-wife’ of popular radio presenter, popularly known as Nedu of Wazobia FM, said that she wasn’t aware of the paternity of their first child until a DNA test was conducted. She also accused her husband of domestic violence.
Ms Ohiri, said this during two separate interviews she granted Punch Newspaper and Goldmyne TV on Tuesday.
She explained the origin of the DNA scandal during her interview with Goldmyne, Ms Ohiri, she said she was seeing someone before Nedu, that this person was on the side disturbing her, that this person he had invited her a couple of times and she turned him down. She said after that relationship ended, she and Nedu met up.
She said “Along the line, I found out that I was pregnant. Trust me, if I knew that my first child was not for him, I wouldn’t have married him. I can’t deliberately pick another man’s child and give it to another man. If I knew, I wouldn’t have gotten married to him. On my wedding day, I was pregnant, everybody saw it.”
Ms Ohiri insisted that she was faithful while she was married, she also added that Nedu doesn’t deserve her son.
she future revealed that Nedu would beat her up then and beg her not to tell the public because he didn’t want to lose his numerous endorsements.
Nedu in response to this claimed that their marriage was plagued with a lot of issues.
He said ‘‘The continuous infidelity from her side made me conduct a paternity test on our kids which led to the revelation that our first son is not my biological son’’.
He said his marriage has been dissolved but his estranged wife has challenged him to produce the divorce papers.
Mean while, Activist Deji Adeyanju has said churches should ensure couples conduct a DNA test on their child before coming for child dedication ceremony.
He also advocated for DNA test to be promoted as a national policy.
He tweeted, “Abegiii my correct brother. DNA is a must. Let us promote it as national policy. Churches should make it mandatory for child dedication.”
Generally, couples that have been through the storms of infidelity in marriage and have forgiven themselves should not use DNA test as a way out of the marriage because their marriage seemed not to be working out, they should be bold and face the issues in their marriage and make it work.
