Smooth-voiced musician Kwabena Kwabena, last Sunday had an extraordinary wedding ceremony with his new-found love of his life, Abena Owusuwaa, though memories of his ‘talk-of-the-town’ wedding with a female nurse, Esther, is still fresh on people’s minds.
NEWS-ONE reports indicate that Kwabena and his new wife were officially joined together at His Majesty’s Hotel, near the Ghana International Trade Fair Center in Accra.
The ceremony attracted several notables including Nana Akufo-Addo, Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2012 elections and his wife, Rebecca.
George Kwabena Adu, popularly known as Kwabena Kwabena, brought sweet tears to the eyes of many when he grabbed the mike and sang for his bride right from the depth of his heart.
Our checks could not establish Abena’s career, apart from the fact that she is a tall beautiful lady with shinning ebony skin.
She completed the Winneba Secondary School in 1997 and is the daughter of a veteran music producer.
Reports say Kwabena Kwabena fell head over heels in love with Abena during his campaign tours with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2008. The lady was said to have been working at one of the party’s research offices at Cantonments in Accra.
Interestingly, the contemporary high-life musician was not dressed in a Western suit. He was smartly dressed in a cream-coloured and well-tailored African wear with impressive embroideries of same colour.
NEWS-ONE feels vindicated over the marriage because the paper came under heavy criticisms when it broke the news in January this year that Kwabena Kwabena and Abena were dating.
Though it was a simple ceremony not meant for the media, NEWS-ONE lenses managed to snap a few historic shots for our readers.
Sometime in April this year, Kwabena Kwabena confirmed that his marriage to Esther was having problems and even hinted they may be calling it quits.
He was quoted by Showbiz to have explained his reason for going in for a fresh lover behind his wife: “I picked a new girlfriend when it became obvious that our marriage was heading for a breakdown and when Esther also realized this, our house became one hell of a place.
Insults on the phone were extended to other members of my family, with my mother getting the worse part.”
He had alleged that Esther listened to tales from other people and worked herself into a rage, adding that the matter bothered him to an extent that he confined himself to his bedroom and wept his heart out.
“I did not have to stay away from home for long, even if the purpose was for something that could be of mutual benefit to us.
Working late at studio or going into meetings that dragged into the late hours of the evenings were all considered as getting into affairs with other women.
“There were other problems but I prefer not to go public on them because that could affect the future of the only child in that marriage.
I am very sure that I did my best to make that marriage work. Maybe she also tried. Marriages do not end overnight, I guess we are both tried,” Kwabena Kwabena added.
