Why Oga Obinna is not keen on marriage

Radio personality Oga Obinna says he is not looking forward to walking down the aisle anywhere in the future. 

The renowned comedian shared his thoughts on why he believes he will never get married again saying he has experienced quite a lot in the pursuit of love that he is not willing to take that leap ever again.

Through his YouTube channel, the comedian shared he would rather spend that time with his kids.

“I am not married, I am on the streets. I don’t think I will get married again. The things I have seen, let me focus on taking care of my four kids,” he said.

Obinna has in the past revealed he is a victim of domestic violence. In a candid interview with a local publication, the radio presenter poured out his heart, narrating the frustrations he has been through with the mother of his two kids.

According to the comedian, he is a victim of circumstance as his baby mama uses their kids to frustrate and paint him as the bad guy in their broken relationship.

“I am being dragged through the mud and I don’t know what the reason is because we have not fought about anything in the recent past and I have not done anything to spark that debate. But for the last one week, what I have been doing is defending myself and the reason why I am still working where I work is because I have evidence that I am the victim,” Obinna said.

The media personality further stated that he had ignored the matter for a very long time but then decided to tell his side of the story.

“I kept quiet for a couple of years, and when I decided to leave, I left peacefully, nobody knew. All the media guys were not there. She did not call a press briefing or anything. I left with my everything and said I just want peace and still be in the life of my children. But since then it’s been difficult even just being in the life of my kids, always one thing after another,” he said.  

During the interview, Obinna mentioned that a lot of men are going through a hard time but there is no one to speak on their behalf.

“The reason why I am seated here is because I am a victim of gender-based violence. I spoke about it last week and nobody has done anything about it because boy child is on his own. Nobody cares about boy child,”

Adding that;

“It’s not a good thing because the children are involved. A lot of people are telling me to leave the children out of it. But she was abusive to the children and I have evidence for all that. Telling me not to talk about is not giving them closure. I am being insulted and I am the victim.”

The seasoned media personality said that he has been through a lot and this is just one of those challenges he is determined to overcome.

“I have been through everything bro. I have been character developed, heartbroken, fired, beaten, abused, and a lot that. I was a chokora,” he disclosed. 

The comedian mentioned that his baby mama is crying for help and therefore social media users should stop gassing her up.

“It’s a cry for help, she is going through something, she is hurting, and she is broken because ladies don’t take rejection very well,” he added.

Asked whether he has ever considered going the legal way when dealing with his baby mama, Obinna said;

“I can sue for defamation, collect back everything, and throw her in prison because of what she has done. If I decide that I want justice.”
