*KSOLO Opens Up On His Crashed Marriage
Penultimate weekend, news broke out that K-Solo’s estrange wife, Kikelomo had put to bed and that he has gone back to his ex-lover, Bimbo. Following this development, the media was awash with the story which quickly went viral.
However, the prolific producer who has been in the news for quite some times over his troubled marriage to Kike has come out to tell whoever cares to listen that Kike is no longer his wife and that he is not convinced if the baby belongs to him. Last week, he spoke extensively on why his marriage to Kike didn’t work and why he went back to his ex-lover amongst several other issues.
Let’s start by congratulating you on your new born baby?
Congratulations on my new baby? Okay you are free to say so, because the person that actually gave birth is my wife, so it’s good to congratulate me, but I have not ascertained yet that it’s my baby.
Because for instance, today is supposed to be the naming ceremony, and when a woman gives birth in Yorubaland, the first call you put across, should be to the man who owns the child, then secondly when you are naming a child it’s right for the father of the child to be there when he is not dead, so when those attributes are not present, then there’s a big question.
Considering that Kike is your wife, don’t you think that the arrival of the baby should resolve the issues you have with her?
I am telling everybody once and for all that she’s no more my wife and from this day henceforth, nobody should address her as Mrs. K-Solo anymore.
Has that been legalized?
Don’t ask me about that, when it’s time for that, you will know, because you know proceedings in court takes time before it gets out, but I am telling you as the man and the owner of that name “K-Solo” that nobody should address that woman again as Mrs. K-Solo, anybody who does so is doing so at his/her own detriment, so I am stating it point and clear that nobody should call her my wife any longer.
Does it mean you also have issues with the baby?
Yes I have issues with it.
The issues I have is that even if someone is not married to you, and it’s just a fling, and you take care of the pregnant woman to the stage of delivery, and she wants to deliver only for you not to know the hospital she delivered. I registered Kike in the hospital where she should deliver, and on the day of the delivery she called my phone, but whenever my phone is switched off, the calls get forwarded to my manager phone, so my manager picked up, and she says she’s given birth, and when asked where is she and the baby, she said don’t bother, then she sent me a text saying (read out text message from his phone) “hi, I want to inform you that I have been delivered of a bouncing baby boy this morning at 5.21am, I called but you didn’t pick, left a message with Funmi (His Manager) when she picked up”. That’s the message she sent to me, and when I put on my phone, messages started pouring in from people congratulating me on a child that I have not seen, even sending me pictures, so I was upset, so I put a call to her the next day and said “young woman, congratulations I learnt you have given birth, is this the way we should go about it, posting the pictures of the baby on-line before I get to see him”, then she said is it a bad thing for her to put it on her DP that her bundle of joy she’s been expecting has arrived, and I told her it’s not bad, but there’s a problem and people will ask questions. So I asked where’s she and the baby, and I asked how do we prepare for the naming ceremony, then she said “I don’t know if you are interested, because I hear you are going about saying you don’t own the baby”. So you can see why I have issues with the baby.
Before she delivered, when was the last time you saw her?
I think it’s 2 weeks before she delivered.
You also said you took care of her during her pregnancy, what exactly did you do?
When I first discovered she was pregnant, I took her for a test at Ogba Medical Laboratory, and I registered her at Blue Cross Hospital where she started anti-natal.
Let’s talk about the interview both of you granted to Channels TV where you said you had both resolved all your differences?
God bless you, Channels TV called me for an interview, it was supposed to be a political interview on their Saturday morning programme called “Sunrise”, and I had already postponed them for about 3 times. We were together when they called, because we have settled already, so when I said I was going for the interview, she started begging me that she was bored and all the stuff, but I refused to take her, then she started carrying and begging me, so she eventually followed me. When I was almost don with my own interview because it was a live show. I didn’t know that the entertainment department of Channels TV were already talking to her, they have been toasting her, and I told them that I didn’t bring her here for an interview, but eventually what Channels TV put on was an edited version of the interview, because I have called them back at Channel TV that hope they have the full recording of the interview we had that day, so that they day when it would be asked for, they will be able to present it.
How would you react to Kike’s story that your marriage started having issues because you wanted her to buy you a Range Rover?
When I read all her stories, I said even if 90% of Nigerians are fools, at least 10% should not be fools, truly there’s no smoke without fire, but if she says it’s because of her money, let me say this to you, K-Solo has been a brand before she surfaced, K-Solo gives, I have moulded lives, and if in just 6 months, she can tell all those stories about me, then something is wrong. Let her come out and bring a picture of where her parents stay, because if she claims she’s from a rich home, then she will not mess her father’s name like this, because everybody sees her as a desperate women, and if she claims she has all this money, a time will come when she will have to come out to explain the kind of job she does. If she truly she gives me all the money she claims, for God sake I have been driving the same care everybody knows me with as a big boy in the industry, let her bring a picture of the car her parents drives, they drive the old set of Peugeot 504 that ever came out in this world till date, you just don’t wake-up and want to spoil somebody’s name.
Why would she want to spoil your name?
Because she knows she’s losing me, and she decided to make a mess of my name which God will never allow her, when she came into my life, everything around me was crumbled.
But what did you see in her that made you marry her?
Le me tell you, I was in a good relationship without a problem and the person I was dating then, is someone that people know in the industry. She respects me and respects my name, she built the name K-Solo with me, the track “Odi Na Money” in Timaya first album, was inspired by Bimbo. So she’s not somebody people don’t know.
So why did you dump her for Kike?
Don’t use the word dumps, you will say why did I leave her for Kike not dump, let me explain, at the time I met Kike, she added me on Blackberry and I asked her how did you get my pin, because I recollect very well that I was
working in the studio with a popular comedian that’s my friend, so she just started explaining herself and with what I saw, though she was a scammer, so I began to save all her chats and messages from that day, so we became friends, one thing led to the other and the reason why the marriage came up was because I didn’t want to have my first child out of wedlock.
So you married her because she was pregnant?
Yes! And before the wedding she always threatened to go to the public if I don’t accept her pregnancy, and I was always like “young woman, you know I have someone I am dating, we didn’t plan all these” , so I wasn’t picturing that she was driving at nailing me with the pregnancy, because I just wanted to protect my name, so that was whey the marriage held. And before the marriage I sat my ex-down and explained to her but she left in anger, and that was whey the marriage held.
All through your marriage with Kike, did you ever beat her?
No. let me tell you something. If you peel a pimple, in less than 2 minutes, the blood turns black. But all the Kikelomo presented are glowing red, she also said I beat her publicly at Shoprite, how come nobody has the pictures of me beating her on their phones, or did they all delete it, haba bros, we are in the age of smart phones, so if K-Solo beats his wife in public in place like Shoprite as she claims, then at least someone should have pictures, and moreover there are surveillance cameras everywhere, so really it got to a point that even my lawyers starred asking me if I have ever seen a psychiatric report on her, because some of things are unimaginable, she also said I burst a Coke bottle on her head, I have been a street boy before, you dare not fight with a Coke bottle because it doesn’t break, so she said I burst a Coke bottle on her head, and she’s alive to say it, then she said I also stoned her with a washing machine, haba bros is washing a water dispenser?
See, the truth is that we’ve been having issues even before the marriage. Our wedding was supposed to kick off at 10am, but it didn’t start till 1pm because on that day I said I wasn’t interested, my mother stared begging me not to spoil my father’s name, so I have been patching from day one, she just wants to belong to that celebrity line. My advice for single guys never to marry any girl that’s not under her parents, because a woman that stays alone and even has house help will never be submissive.
Are you saying that she wasn’t submissive?
Let’s talk about your manager, Funmi Mensah, there’s gist that you are dating her?
Listen Kike is a very jealous woman, she is very possessive and can kill because of jealousy, even if you talk to your mother too much, it’s a problem, and when Funmi came on board, we have already parted ways. As a matter of fact, Funmi tried very hard to make sure my marriage worked, she’s my manger, I have never dated her, she’s now even more than my manger, she’s now my blood.
But really, how has this scandal affected you?
It actually affected me when it started at that time, because I wasn’t expecting it at all, it was a family thing until I saw the story the papers, but the truth is I am standing, and God will never bring a problem that’s too much for you to handle, a home stands not by a man, but a woman, and Pastor Adeboye says a woman that keeps her mouth keeps her home.
Today is Friday and it’s supposed to be your naming ceremony, what’s happening?
I don’t know but I am aware that she’s holding a naming ceremony right now.
Are you very convinced about the paternity of the child?
I am not so convinced about, because I once confronted her about an actor that once dated her, another musician has also called me about her, she sends her naked pictures to this guy, so those issues are surrounding her, and coupled with the fact that I took care of her till delivery and even bought baby things and she returned all of them, then I called her when she delivered that if I truly own the baby, she should bring him to me before Thursday, my mum even called her parents too but it was never done. So tell me, do I own the child? As for my ex, I am back with her (Bimbo) and the truth of the matter is, today that she’s holding the naming ceremony is the same day I am officially getting engaged to Bimbo, and I will be releasing the pictures later tonight, but like I always say, I know Kike with her tricks, if anything happens to Bimbo, I am going to be picking Kike and her family up.
