Veteran artist and actress, Onyeka Onwenu has broken her silence on her rumoured secret marriage to former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.

The 'One Love' crooner bared her mind on the issue in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, on #WithChude.

The author of "My Father's Daughter" said the accusations that she slept with Obasanjo and had a secret marriage with the former President is false.

"I was accused of sleeping with Sunny Ade, Fela and Obasanjo.

"They even went to the extent of saying I got married to Obasanjo secretly.

"If he approached me to marry him, why would I keep it a secret? We would have made it public, so that was funny," she added.

Onyeka Onwenu also talked about turning down the late music legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti who approached her for marriage in the eighties.

"Fela is a trickster. He knew I'd say no," she said of Fela's marriage proposal.

"I think it was his way of thanking me for coming out in support of him when he was jailed…" the singer added.
