Retired Journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has lashed out at gospel singer Frank Edward following his statement after the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu was announced.
The ‘Ekwueme’ singer was confirmed dead on Friday night.
Hours after her death, reports emerged that the singer suffered domestic violence and was beaten by her husband, which landed her in the hospital.
Frank Edwards, who had earlier reacted to her death, went on Instagram live expressing sadness about Osinachi’s death. He wrote, “So that Unreasonable human being finally put off a shining light.
“I won’t say much now, I’ll let the former NDDC director (AUNTY Joy) who did everything possible to stop this from happening talk 1st, but it still happened. We tried to stop this.”
He said, “One time in a studio, this man slapped her just because she wanted to record the song in Igbo against his will. She does not do anything on her own.
“She would say, please beg my husband. She was at his mercy. I didn’t know the intensity of what she was going through; I didn’t know how somebody would be jealous of the wife he claimed to love.
“There are a lot of stories where people told her this and that, but what I know was that the control was too much. The other time somebody wanted me to get her for an event, and I contacted her, but she said ‘beg my husband.’
“She couldn’t even tell people what she was going through. I only got to know because Aunty Joy contacted me to promote her song. That was when I got a glimpse into what was happening.”
Kemi Olunloyo had pointed out some lapses in his statement and put out a tweet.
Frank Edwards you’re STUPID! Were you not Osinachi Nwachukwu’s secret lover? Of course her own husband was “jealous” of her. Joy Nunieh should not be dragged into your foolishness. Joy is a real woman & strong one & she once slapped Akpabio for sexual harassment
