Gospel singer Nicah The Queen and Dr Ofweneke open up about their failed marriage

Gospel singer Nicah The Queen and her ex-husband, Dr Ofweneke, have spoken out about the reasons for their divorce.

In an interview with Oga Obinna, Ofweneke said that he made the mistake of trying to change Nicah into the person he wanted her to be, rather than accepting her for who she was.

“I ignored the foundation,” he said. “Why relationships don’t work out is because we get into relationships with the idea of changing what attracted us to them in the beginning. You get? This is what I like about you, then I want to come in and do a whole interior redecorating. So I want to turn you into what I prefer.”

Ofweneke also said that he made the mistake of putting the burden of his happiness on Nicah.

“Otherwise people are stuck in powerbank relationships whereby one person is just charging the other. So the other one is full, and the one is left empty,” he said. “This leads to cheating because they have to go look for another person to refill them.”

Ofweneke said that he ended the marriage while they were relaxing at home.

“I loved Niccah so much that I forgot myself,” he said. “But the day I rediscovered myself is the day I told her mama, it’s been a good stretch. Actually, we were holding hands watching Netflix. We were in the house, the kids were there, my brother and sister.”

Ofweneke said that he regrets the way the marriage ended, but that he is now in a better place.

“We were not perfect for each other,” he said. “I remember that day that I left, I remember God was laughing in my ear, this was not the marriage he had planned for me. She is a good woman, amazing, but she is not the person I planned out for you. So you went with aesthetics, while I was going for the calling.”

Nicah The Queen has also spoken out about the divorce, saying that she is hurt but that she is moving on.

“I am a strong woman, and I will get through this,” she said. “I am grateful for the time I had with Dr Ofweneke, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

The couple have two children together.
