I will give Tega a second chance if she apologises- Husband

Published

on

Ajeboh Krislawrence, the husband of Tega — a recently evicted Big Brother Naija housemate — has stated that he will give his wife a second chance if she comes back and apologises for her actions while in the Big Brother house.

Krislawrence added that he would not abandon his wife, despite some video snippets which surfaced online suggesting she cheated on him with a fellow contestant, Boma.

According to him, although his wife’s actions made him sad and broken, he believes that she needs him now more than ever.

In an Instagram Live chat with popular blogger, Tunde Ednut, Krislawrence mentioned that he was shocked by his wife’s behaviour while she was in the BBNaija house.

He said, “I feel so sad and terrible, I cannot even lie. I cannot even leave my house because there are a lot of stories on the street. I am broken. Basically, I am broken. I am down. I will not lie. Tega had been a very, very good girl. Let me forget this side of her, she has been a very good girl. I am surprised; when I saw it, I said this is not my wife. It felt as if they cloned her because that could not have been Tega.

“I have never seen this side of Tega because she is a God-fearing woman. She has never disobeyed me. This is a different Tega I am seeing. I am really shocked. I am down and broken. I want that Tega I used to know back not the Tega of Big Brother house.”

Krislawrence revealed that if his wife is remorseful, he will accept her back. He further asked Nigerians to pray for his family.

He said, “I am just human, we are all humans. I believe that we have all sinned and God will forgive us. If I do anything funny right now, I do not know what might happen. I believe she knows that what she did was totally bad but I believe that she needs us right now more than ever.

“I will not throw her away; she is my wife. Yes, she has disappointed me, but I think these things come with marriage. There is no perfect marriage. I have never had an issue before with my marriage for the past four years. We have never had issues. Since this is our first issue, I do not think I should abandon her. What we just need is for Nigerians to pray for us.

“If she comes back and apologises, I will give her a second chance; but if she comes and says what she did was okay, I will let her go and I will move on.”

Annie Idibia slams Tuface for allegedly having Affairs with Baby Mamas

Published

on

Popular Nigerian actress, Annie Idibia, in a now-deleted Instagram Story post has accused her husband, Tuface, of infidelity. In the post, Annie claimed that Tuface’s family never found her worthy of him despite all her efforts.

She said, “I’m a patient woman, I am not a fool innocent! Your family never loved me from the beginning, no matter how hard I tried. I was never worthy to them. I have made so many sacrifices for you and all your children. God knows I have tried.”(sic).

Annie further claimed that the singer spent nights under the same roof with one of his baby mamas after taking his kids to Disney Land.

“What kind of man takes his kids to Disney and spends nights in the same apartment with his kids and their mother! How many times have you gone to see your kids with Pero and she stays with you and the kids under the same roof for nights?” she claimed.

In the post, Annie urged her husband to do better and also indicted the singer’s manager, Efe. Annie further claimed that Tuface’s baby mamas use his children ‘as an excuse for all sorts of rubbish’.

She wrote, “Your baby mamas constantly use your children as an excuse for all sorts of rubbish! I try to stay gracious!! You’re not the first man on the planet to have kids by different women. You can do better. Everything I do is to show the good human that you are!!! But today, this move by you, Efe, Frankie, and your family is unacceptable.”

However, efforts to reach out to Efe Omorogbe, Tuface’s manager to comment on the issue was futile as his phone was switched off.
