Maria Nwakanma, a sister-in-law to Port Harcourt-based singer, Duncan Mighty, has refuted the allegations recently levelled against her by the latter.
Nwakanma stated that neither she nor any member of her family was interested in any of the singer’s properties, adding that Mighty’s social media posts were a pointer to the type of husband he was.
In a nine part-post on Instagram, Duncan Mighty had accused his wife, Vivian, her mother, Charity Nwakanma, and siblings, Maria and Bright, of going diabolical to poison him and inherit his properties.
He also claimed that he recorded some of his wife’s confession as evidence to back his claims.
His post read in part, “She started by saying that on several occasions in her family house, they always talked about my many properties and investments at this young age. Being an only child, (they felt) if anything happened to me, they could choose which of my properties to inherit, especially her elder sister, Maria, her mum and brother, Bright Nwakanma.
However, in a telephone interview with Saturday Beats, Maria dared him to post the evidence he had. She said, “This is a family matter because my younger sister is married to him. There are children involved, so there are things I cannot talk about. About his claims on social media, my mother, sister and I only have love for him. Whatever he is saying about my family, he is on his own. We don’t want to get involved in all this. When he is done, he would clear himself.
“I do not live with them and I cannot leave my father’s house to go and inherit another man’s property. I don’t understand why he said those things. He said he is the only child but I know he is not. His mother has other children. He also has children outside wedlock, so where is my stake in his property. He has been deleting comments by people who know him. He should stop removing those comments. Would a reasonable person air their family issues in public? Everybody, including his wife, Vivian, are okay. She has children to take care of. He took the boy because that is the only son he has. We don’t want to join issues with him. Let him post his evidence, so the truth would prevail. The truth cannot be hidden. You cannot cover a lie forever.”
This is not the first time Duncan and his wife would be in the news for the wrong reason. In August 2018, there were reports that the singer pummelled his wife in their Port Harcourt home. But, in a swift response, the ‘Fake Love’ crooner denied the allegations of domestic violence, adding that his marriage would not be destroyed by what is posted on social media.
