Following the report of a man who committed suicide because his wife left him, singer, Ure Adaku Okezie popularly called Queen Ure disclosed that her second marriage has crashed.
In 2017, Queen Ure got married to Pastor Silas Briyork-Newman after her marriage to her first husband, Emmanuel Okosie, a.k.a Soul E, ended. According to her, she didn’t date her ex-husband before marrying him because she was growing older.
Now separated from him, Queen Ure is grateful for life rather than mourn over not having a husband or children of her own. In a chat with Yes Magazine, she said that, rather than kill herself, she would prepare for a third wedding.
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 outcast, 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 every day. 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 heartbroken 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, and that’s a testimony. For the records, I never cheated on him, never contemplated it.
