The veteran singer and actress has revealed that she tied the knot with a Yoruba Muslim in 1984 and the union produced two sons named Tijani Ogunlende and Ibrahim Ogunlende.
Madam Onyeka Onwenu, who has always kept her life private, made this revelation in her new memoir titled ‘My Father’s Daughter’.
In the autobiography, the 68-year-old movie star unveiled how she fell in love decades ago and how the union produced her two handsome sons.
Portion of the book read;
“In this book, I am, perhaps for the very first time, setting the records straight with respect to my connubial relationship. Yes, I was married. I married a man I fell in love with in 1984,” she said. “We have two children: Tijani and Ibrahim. (Ibrahim later changed the first letter of his name from I to A, and thus became Abraham.) My husband is Yoruba, and was a Muslim when we met.”
