With Actress Kate Henshaw
Recall that years ago, while dating popular actress, Kate Henshaw, the singer was accused of beating and even breaking her ankle. Kate Henshaw said
“I can’t withstand violence in a relationship. I was once a victim. The relationship lasted for about three/four years. I didn’t know who I was then. I was so timid, I almost stopped smiling and almost stopped laughing, but there was this inner strength in me that helped me to rediscover myself. In fact, I had no self esteem then. I wanted to change and be who I was not, based on the ill treatment and violent nature of my man then.
He was constantly abusing, beating and battering me inside the house and in public places. I think there was a time when I walked round with bandage on my leg, courtesy of my violent lover. Funny enough, this violent lover of mine claimed to love me and wanted to marry me then.
The singer recently rendered a public apology to his wife, Ozioma after cheating on her while he was in the United States.
The multiple award winning gospel singer took to his Instagram to confess his wrongs and seek forgiveness, after he was accused of impregnating a lady in US.
Okposo revealed that the incident occurred recently, late in 2021.
