Nedu married Uzoamaka Ohiri in 2013, but their marriage crashed in 2018. Nedu claimed his marriage has been dissolved but his estranged wife has said otherwise and has challenged him to produce the divorce papers.
Ohiri, on Friday, September 3, 2021 called out Nedu for domestic violence. She accused Nedu of battering her a few weeks after she was delivered of their child by a Cesarean section. On September 4, 2021, Nedu responded to his wife’s allegations and denied physically violating his wife. Nedu would later respond to her claims saying their marriage was plagued with a lot of issues.
He wrote, ‘‘Our marriage was plagued with a lot of issues. One of which was continuous infidelity from her side that led to me conducting a paternity test on our kids which led to the revelation that our first son is not my biological son even though he was born within the period during which we were married’’. To substantiate his claims, he also posted a copy of the DNA test which was conducted by a forensic laboratory, Viaguard Accu-metrics, located in Toronto Canada. The radio personality and Instagram skit maker, 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”.
Although Uzoamaka had said that she did not cheat on Nedu during their brief marriage, she noted that she did not intentionally give another man’s baby to her ex-husband.[ Uzoamaka stated that she was already pregnant with her ex before she married Nedu, albeit, unbeknownst to her.
Uzoamaka claimed that shortly after her previous relationship ended, she decided to get to know Nedu, then they were married while she was pregnant, not knowing that he wasn’t responsible for the pregnancy. She was visibly pregnant during the wedding and everyone could see it. She said that it was communications issues which were solely responsible for the disruption of their marriage. She said that their marriage was plagued with domestic violence and that it was not the DNA test report that led to their eventual divorce.
