- Singer Muma Gee in an interview before her marriage crisis revealed why she did not undergo courtship with her estranged husband
- The singer claimed Prince Eke proposed to her on their second meeting
- Eke in December 2016 accused his wife of abandoning her matrimonial home and kids for months to frolic with men in Abuja
Singer Muma Gee’s marriage to actor Prince Eke might have hit the rock as Eke said he is done with the marriage. NAIJ.com stumbled on an interview where the singer spoke about how they met and got married without courtship.
The singer who doubles as an actress said they did not engage in pre-marital s*x before they got married.
Could it be that their marriage did not last because they did not court at all?
Read excerpts from the interview with Muma Gee as conducted by Golden Pearl media months before the troubles in her marriage began.
You mentioned that you and your hubby didn’t court at all, how then did your friendship lead to marriage?
There was no friendship that led to marriage, rather marriage led us into friendship. Prince Eke proposed a second after we got introduced by Emeka Ike and he carried out all the traditional rights as demanded by the custom of the Ekpeye people of River state. After that, I officially became his wife and we needed a year to plan our royal wedding in 2011. And since then, I have been his and his alone but I must warn! No premarital s*x!
What if it turns out bad?
Hmmm, I would have been bad but don't try this at home o! (laughs)
You mentioned that there was no courtship or premarital s*x between you and your hubby, what’s the first attraction then?
His level of intelligence got me more attracted to him.
In other words, you don’t regret marrying him without friendship?
Yes, but now we are best of friends as we grew fond of ourselves with time
You are among the few Nigerian celebrities that dared to follow their hearts and marry a man younger than them. Were you criticized over that age barrier?
POINT OF CORRECTION !!! I am not older than my husband. So I never faced any form of criticism of any sort by his family or mine.
Really? But the public believes otherwise.
Yes, really. It was never said to my hearing.
But I read one of your old interviews where you actually said you didn’t care about his age?
Who dictates my age? Did they give birth to me? I have kept quiet over the years and watched people talk bulls*it about my age. Let that person who gave birth to me give us details of my birth; the time, the weight, the hour of my birth.
Worst of all is that, these foolish speculators that create false rumours without proper research are idiots who have never been privileged to see me physically or know what I really look like other than the stage look.
And why is my age so much an issue? Is it a crime to become popular at an early stage in one’s life? Although I don't care about his age, I am not older than him.
Were you expecting his marriage proposal before he popped the question?
First, it is not normal for anyone to propose at that instant and so I least expected a man that I was just meeting to propose let alone pop out any question.
When he did, what was your first reaction?
I was too shocked to respond and after the shock, I allowed myself go with the flow. And the result is where we are today.
