Nigerian singer Felix Duke has come out in support of his friend Emeka who has recently been embroiled in a war of words with his ex-wife, Emma, about their crashed marriage.
Felix Duke who is the President of Creative Industry Group (CIG) defended his friend in a post on social media while reacting to the exchange between the estranged pair on social media.
He stated categorically in his post that his friend Emeka Ike really loved Emma but he believes that she did not love him the way he loved her which made her part ways with him.
According to Duke, “When Emma took Emeka to court, I was there. I went to court with Emeka.
“Emeka truly loved this woman but I believe she never loved him the way he loved her. From day one before Emeka met Emma, I have been friends with him.
“When he met Emma, he called me and told me that it was so many years ago. He said there is this girl I met and I would want you to meet her and he brought Emma and introduced her to me. I was at their marriage when they had Michael (first child), I was at the naming, Emeka was also at my marriage so many years ago. So we have been friends.
“I can tell you what Emeka went through. He was depressed after Emma left him, crying every day. I pet him and sometimes weep with him when he is crying.
“We kept praying together and I told him one day you will find love and he asked me: are you sure I will ever find love and I assured him he would.
“I followed Emeka to court and the judge told two of them to go outside the courtroom and talk and see if they can reconcile, but if they can’t, then they come back in, and he declared his judgment.
“When the judge told them that; myself, Emeka Ike and his wife, went out, and Emeka knelt down right in my presence to beg Emma, I even joined Emeka to beg her, but she refused.”
Duke said that whatever Emeka had said was the truth as he witnessed everything. He said that Emeka lost his established school properties, and had to start his life from scratch to rise again.
“Emma abandoned the school to run down because she was already out of the marriage. Emeka did not know that she was out of the marriage. Emeka still thought that he had a wife in Emma,” he said.
