“You Don’t Know Half Of What I Have Gone Through. I Only Leave It To God” – Muma Gee Reveals What Actually Went Wrong In Her Marriage


There are many untold stories of pain and heart breaks behind many marriages that fail. How does a once happy union become a source of pain and betrayal? How do two people who once loved each other become strangers who can no longer see eye to eye?

Singer Muma Gee’s marriage to Prince Eke has been in the news for sometime, but in a chat with Nonye Ben-Nwankwo and Ademola Olonilua of Punch, Muma Gee shared details of what actually went wrong in her marriage.

Read excerpts below.

On infidelity

He said I was seen with men, who are the men? Where is the proof? I am a high chief. Why would you come out and lie against somebody who has been kind to you? There is nemesis for all of this. I knew there was a victim he wanted to impress.

Last May, I got a call from a woman who told me that she and my ex were supposed to get married but he had run away to the US. The lady said she was sorry that she got involved with him. That was not the first time but the fourth time somebody who was married to me would propose to four different women during my marriage.

Come on! You don’t know half of what I have gone through. I only leave it to God. When I had my twins, a woman based in America called Gina sent me a friend request on Facebook and I accepted. Then she sent me her naked pictures and my ex in bed.

My ex had proposed to this same woman on a Valentine’s Day and April of that year, I was delivered of a set of twins and the pictures went viral. This lady ran mad and looked for me on FB. The street I live in Port Harcourt is named after me. This woman told me that a girl on that street gave birth to a child for my husband. She sent me the picture of the baby.

I had heard that he had slept with most of the actresses in Nollywood especially the up and coming ones. But I didn’t care. I wanted to keep my home. I had been in pains all through the years I was married. He had an affair with the DCO of the police station in the area we lived in Port Harcourt.

Two of them used to wear the same attire to attend police functions. Everybody felt the policewoman was the wife of my ex. This DCO is even a married woman.

There was a day he came home and said he was done with our marriage. He went to the drawer where we kept the wedding certificate and he tore it to pieces. I still have the pieces packed in a nylon bag. He and this police woman planned to take my kids from me. This was April 2015. He packed my kids’ clothes into a box and he and the woman took my kids to the motherless babies’ home.

Later in the evening, I got a call from the orphanage saying they needed my approval for them to accept my kids at the motherless babies’ home. I screamed! Later on, a policeman brought my kids back home.

Just recently, another woman called me that she had spent $7000 dollars on my ex. She saw my children’s picture on my ex’s DP and she went mad. I told her that I wished her luck.”

On domestic violence

I would have still forgiven him as I always forgave him each time he walked out of the marriage and came back after a couple of months. But this last time, he held my neck tightly and said he was going to kill me.

I was holding my two-month-old baby. He gave me a dirty slap and the baby was thrown out of my hand and the baby’s head hit the bed. It wasn’t the first time he would grab my neck and torment me. He had beaten me a couple of times. But the last beating came with, ‘you are finished!’ he said he was done with me.

Shortly before I gave birth, I had sold one of my lands. He gave me N100, 000 and said as I was going to the village; I should buy sand and concrete for the house he was building in the village. But I finished the money I got from selling my land on his building in the village.

I loaned him N500, 000 and when trouble started and I needed money to feed the kids, I asked him for the money. That was when he beat me, held my neck and said he was going to kill me and that I was finished. When he released me, I told him he was not God and that I was not finished.

He packed out of the house and checked into a hotel. Once in a while, he would call the house help and tell her to dress the children and he would take them out and then he would send one of his girlfriends to bring back the kids. It was after this incident that I had to look for an agent and I begged her to book shows for me so that hunger would not kill me and my children since he had stopped taking care of us.

    How love suddenly gone sour and how hatred creeps in and take over is really amazing.

    One minutes you can’t live without each other and the next you can’t stand each other. There really is no real love on this planet earth.

    ALOT of our women are the diggers of their own very grave. Am not here to condemn or justify anybody but pride won’t let us admit our own faults. Madam go build your home in Christ Jesus the solid rock. When a man talks one and a woman talk ten then yooooou don’t have to cry over domestic violence…Am telling you fr my own experiences.

      What about d man flirting without small respect for d woman? What is making d woman to talk ten if d man is cool headed n behaves normal. My dear na God Bcos d so call marriage thing is not easy. God help us.

      September 17, 2017 at 12:06 pm

      Alice Okile Syer nobody has ever said Marriage was going to a bed of roses. You get wot you give. It’s in the Holy Bible that a woman shud submit herself into her hus and not as a slave but as a wife but some sort prides of celebrity gets into our heads along the way…what happens to mummy joke Silva and her hubby? What’s happens to mercy Johnson and her hubby? Ain’t those ones bigger celebrities? You think they don’t have iishs in their marriages?
      My dear we shud pick a lead from the good trees.
      I still stand in my word that you give in your best to get the bestest out of it. It’s not easy but it is very well. I am strongly against divorce and it kills my spirit when I see people who once said all the lovey-dovey words to one another saying hating words just within a space of very few yrs.

      I agree with you Lyndah Misan Alabi. Just that we ladies don’t accept even wen at fault
      That’s bad !!!
      Ladies tha complain my hubby this my hubby that won’t still tell you the part they didn’t play well
      I am not siding the men that misbehave but atleast we (ladies) should work more on ourselves!!

    • Folashade Awoseyi

      September 17, 2017 at 1:54 pm

      We are not super humans!! We try and shouldn’t be punished for the parts we seemingly don’t play well. Sensible men compliment their wives not cheat on them!! And to think women are always to blame for the crash of any marriage smacks of narrow mindedness and cruelty

    • Lyndah Misan Alabi

      Lyndah Misan Alabi

      September 17, 2017 at 5:25 pm

      You’ve spoken Folashade Awoseyi but we women are 70% the reasons for break ups in marriages. You can do a research on that and you’ll just be amazed to see the outcome of your findings.

      Lyndah Misan Alabi I beg to differ in that your submission that women are 70% the reasons for break ups in marriages. Where did you get the data please?Thats a big fat lie, make your research or show us where you got your data. Why do we blame ourselves for things we are not responsible for????
