Kwam1 defends decision to marry ex-wife’s niece


Kwam1 and his wife

Kwam 1 said he separated from his former wife about 20 years ago.


Ever since news broke that Fuji star, Kwam1, secretly wedded socialite, Titi Masha, who happens to be his former wife, Salewa’s niece, tongue’s have been wagging.

The latest couple, who also happen to be expecting their first child together, appear unperturbed by the criticism. In defense, the singer says although both women belong to the same family, chances are that they do not even know each other because they belong to a large family.

Reacting to the allegations, while fielding questions from journalist at his Ijebu mansion, Kwam1 said, ” Salewa who is being spoken about here remarried some 20 years ago and she is still married. So to claim that I married cousins , yes they might be on the long run but anyone knows that the Masha Eshilokun family is such a large family in Lagos that I know many of them do not even know themselves.”

The singer who was granted a Canadian citizenship in August, also denied that he snatched his latest wife from his good friend and popular socialite, Gbenga ‘Islander’ Akinbobola.

“I have dated many women in my life who are today legally married, how many of them will I call and say , I have dated your wife before? What happens to such? Do we crucify a woman for having dated someone before? Do we say because a woman is married before she can’t remarry like we all do or do we say because I’m a star I don’t have feelings or am not human? We all know that Fela was once married to 27 women at once in this country …I’m only married to two!” the Fuji icon said.

Concerning his relationship with his other wife, Wendy, who resides in Canada, he said, “Yes I am fully married to Wendy too and my feelings for her has never weaned , and don’t forget this is not the first time I’m having two women under my roof . People, either friends or foe should leave this women to enjoy their husband.”

The Fuji musician, who was visibly angered by the allegations, said he would rather people face issues affecting Nigerians, like education and its decadence, and lack of jobs.

“We should start to ask the powers that be what they are doing,” he said.
