The second marriage of Ure Adaku Okezie popularly called Queen Ure, the ex-wife of music rave, Emmanuel Okosie, a.k.a Soul E, has crashed.
Ure got married to Pastor Silas Briyork-Newman in Umuahia, Abia State on November 26, 2017.
In a new interview with Yes magazine, Ure revealed that her marriage to the pastor has packed up. She said they never dated and she married him depsite him being a widower with four children. Ure disclosed this while reacting to the news of a man who committed suicide because his wife left him.
‘He committed suicide because his wife left him! I wish he had tried to look at the situation a bit differently. I don’t know what you’re going through right now but truly there’s always something good in every ugly situation.
Most of you saw my wedding photos barely a year ago, I was happy, I thought that finally God had answered my prayers, a widowed pastor with 4 very young lovely kids, so Wifey and Mummy all at once. I packed all my load and relocated to Gwagwalada. We didn’t date, I took the chance based on recommendation as I was 45 going to 46.
’The guy showed me nwii as in, if not that my father drummed it in my ear that I’m a Queen, I would have thought I was an outcast, every month he would tell me to pack my things and go that I’m not submissive, that a good wife will submit all her money and her body. I was submitting the body o but he wanted the thing everyday.
I was not submitting the money but I was willingly and generously looking after everyone as he didn’t have any source of income. (The Church was new). You’re wondering why I would marry a man with 4 children that doesn’t have shishi?
The good values we were brought up with hasn’t left us, some of us still believe in love and small beginnings, I wasn’t desperate not at all. Anyway onye awusa chirim onu n’ala and finally “broke the marriage” when I insisted I wouldn’t make him a director of my company nor a signatory to the account yet. He may not be such a terrible man just a man with a different view of marriage from mine. This was my 2nd marriage. I will now come and kill myself?
‘To say that I’m not heart broken I’ll be lying but to think that is the end of the world mbanu, for what? Instead of suicide, I’ll kukuma do wedding number 3. I turned 47 last August …no child, no husband, doesn’t sound good but I’m alive and healthy, that’s a testimony.
For the records I never cheated on him, never contemplated it.’
