Nkiru Sylvanus Reportedly Marries Stanley Duru, Oge Okoye’s Ex-Husband [Photos]
UPDATE Feb 2015 - Nkiru Sylvanus Denies Current Plans To Marry Stanley Duru, But Says It's Possible
Last week, a blind item of a story went round the naija blogosphere that a popular Nollywood actress was set to marry her colleague’s ex-husband. After a lot of go arounds on the gossip vine, the names of the actresses involved has been confirmed as Nkiru Sylvanus and Oge Okoye.
Reportedly, Oge Okoye moved in with Amsterdam-based Stanley Duru in 2006 while he was already dating Nkiru Sylvanus in Nigeria.
After Oge got pregnant, Stanley Duru dumped Nkiru while she was already planning their marriage and paid the bride price for Oge Okoye just before they welcomed their son in December 2006. The marriage was rocked by a scandal but after reconciliation, Oge took in again and delivered a baby girl in 2010.
Allegedly, the marriage hit a dead end over 2 years ago when they couldn't get past the scandal which was supposedly about an extra-marital affair Oge Okoye had with another man while married.
Some say it is because of the shady beginnings of her relationship with Stanley Duru and the rocky nature of their relationship that Oge Okoye never flaunted his pictures or talked about him to the press.
Below are some pictures of Stanley Duru - on the left - with a friend in Amsterdam.
Oge Okoye also did not reveal her marriage breakup to the media, hoping they would reconcile as usual, however, that never happened.
Instead, earlier this year, Stanley Duru got back together with Nkiru Sylvanus and now the two are planning to get married in the next few days, according to Stella Dimorkorkus.
Nkiru Sylvanus is an actress and political appointee under Rochas Okorochas’ administration, and has often said that she wouldn't mind being a second wife. According to some reports, Nkiru and Stanley did their traditional wedding this past Saturday in a private setting, and their white wedding preparation is what remains to be finalised.
Meanwhile, before Stanley Duru met Oge Okoye, he dated a Dutch lady named Barbara who delivered a baby girl named Uchechi Olivia for him. That makes him a father of three.
It was to nurse her alleged heartbreak that Oge Okoye took her children to Spain where her mother lives in order to celebrate her son's eight birthday.
