Presspeep.com has gathered that wife of Highlife musician, Kwabena Kwabena, has left their matrimonial home over allegations of promiscuity by the ‘Aso’ hitmaker.
The site gathered that wife of Kwabena Kwabena, Abena Owusuaa, is no longer staying with him and the cause (amongst alleged beatings) is that he allegedly impregnated their house help. After discovering the house help is pregnant, the wife sacked the girl to go stay in the village – where she came from. Abena is currently staying in a house in Lapaz – a suburb in Accra.
Kwabena Kwabena’s Response
In an exclusive interview with Presspeep.com, Kwabena Kwabena maintained he is still staying with his wife and also denied allegations of impregnating their house-help. When asked to let us speak to the wife whom he claimed still stays with him, he drifted from the subject and started haranguing.
“Why are you media guys always on us to pick negative stories? Go to Nigeria, they promote their artists – they don’t bring them down like you guys do here! I have released a new song, you won’t ask me about it so you promote it! That is what you should do! Let’s promote our own!”
Presspeep.com asked him to send every detail about his new song and assured to publish but he never got back to us – as at the time of wrapping up on this report for publication. We are still following this story up – as it is fraught with many mysteries.
This separated marriage of Kwabena Kwabena is actually his second marriage. Silky voice Kwabena Kwabena, real name George Kwabena Adu, tied the knot with Abena Owusuaa at the forecourt of His Majesty’s (HM) in La, a suburb of Accra six years ago.
Unlike the usual wedding ceremony held in churches, the couple then proceeded to HM where they exchanged vows, rings and received blessings by a priest to officially become husband and wife.
Abena’s Affiliation With NPP
Abena is a staunched NPP youth activist and once worked as a staff of Nana Akufo-Addo during the 2008 electioneering campaign. That was when the singer was signed on by the then ruling NPP as one of the music icons for their campaign.
Some of the dignitaries present at their marriage were: Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo (then NPP Flagbearer) and his wife Rebecca, former MP for Ablekuma Central, Kwamena Bartels, Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) of Radio Gold, Special Aide to former President Kufour, Mr. Kwakye, NPP MP for Evalue-Gwira, Catherine Afeku, Lawyer Nana Asante Bediatuo, NPP MP for Manhyia Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, Frances Essiam, among others.
Presspepp.com also learnt Kwabena could not get a good recording deal from NPP during last year’s election campaign because of his separation with Abena. Abena was the one who introduced him to big wings in the party. She actually got Kwabena a good deal during the 2008 presidential elections.
Abena Had A Child Before Marrying Kwabena
Abena had a son with Board Chairman of the Ghana Sports Council and Publisher of Agoo Magazine, Kojo Bonsu. She completed the Winneba Secondary School in 1997 and is the daughter of a veteran music producer.
Kwabena married his first wife, Esther, at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, Kwashieman in Accra, but went their separate ways barely a year into the marriage.
When the marriage was dissolved, Esther allegedly blamed Kwabena’s alleged love affair with Abena as the genesis of her marital woes. But Kwabena Kwabena rather blamed the breakdown of the marriage on his ex-wife Esther who he claims gave too much ear to tale bearers.
He said Esther often worked herself into a frenzy over things people tell her, which were mostly false. That marriage was blessed with a male child.
He was quoted by Graphic Showbiz to have explained his reason for going in for a fresh lover behind his wife: “I picked a new girlfriend when it became obvious that our marriage was heading for a breakdown and when Esther also realized this, our house became one hell of a place.
“I did not have to stay away from home for long, even if the purpose was for something that could be of mutual benefit to us. Working late at studio or going into meetings that dragged into the late hours of the evenings were all considered as getting into affairs with other women.
“There were other problems but I prefer not to go public on them because that could affect the future of the only child in that marriage. I am very sure that I did my best to make that marriage work. Maybe she also tried. Marriages do not end overnight, I guess we are both tried,” Kwabena Kwabena added.
Affair With One Priscilla
Kwabena was once reported by Peacefmonline.com to have had a child with another lady called Priscilla, a resident of Pig farm, a suburb in Accra.
Born in Accra on 17th October 1978, Kwabena Kwabena attended Datus Complex situated at Bubuashie and when the family relocated to Achimota, he enrolled at Green Hill School and later to Aggrey Junior Secondary School for his basic education.
He completed St. Peter’s Secondary School in Nkwatia Kwahu in the Eastern Region some years back. For his Tertiary Education, Kwabena Kwabena schooled at the Accra Polytechnic.
