- Dennis Ikpelue, the ex-husband of Ngozi Exeonu, has said that his ex-wife gave their daughter out in marriage without his input
- Dennis said that it a strong taboo in Igbo land for any woman to do so without the consent of the father
- Ngozi's ex-husband has, however, described the marriage as unreal, likening it to the ones that take place in Nollywood films
Popular Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu has been dragged for marrying off her daughter, Odechukwu Ediwa Ezeonu, without getting the father’s consent.
It should be noted that the said daughter got married on Saturday, February 15, in a classy traditional ceremony held in Asaba, Delta state.
Media also reported that the girl’s father, who is also Ngozi’s ex-husband, Denis Ikpelue, was not present at the event.
In a viral media report, the man said that the daughter got married without his hand, saying that the Igbo tradition does not allow a woman to give out a daughter's hand in marriage.
He was quoted as saying that such is an “abomination and taboo”, adding that “…as long as I and the entire family of Ezeonu and his kindred are concerned, Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu is not married.”
Dennis described the marriage ceremony like the one that happens in Nollywood movies, saying it is not a real one.
“Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu is yet to marry. What happened at Asaba Delta State on the 15th of February 2020 was the usual Nollywood home video film shooting. As at the time I lived with Ngozi Denis Ikpelue, I have three children; a daughter and two boys,” he said.
The actress’ ex-husband also said that woman has been deceiving many that she is still married to him, adding that the legal dissolution of their marriage happened in 2015.

The gospeller said that the sole reason why many women stay unmarried is that they cannot find a rich man.
He added that the women want rich women so that the wealthy men can pay for the expensive wedding that they and their family cannot afford.
Omokri said that the problem stems from the fact that these women want to have the kind of big wedding that their neighbours had.
