Anita Drags Rudeboy To Abuja High Court 


I was eating on Friday evening precisely August 20th when the news hit my screen. 


My friend called and broke the news to me as I was struggling with a bowl of Eba and Egusi Soup.

I paused for a minute and asked him what he just said because I wasn’t expecting such news. 


He repeated what he said as I quickly dropped the eba I already have molded to gulp down my throat, went to the parlor, and picked up my phone. 


I quickly turned on my data and I saw the highlight of what transpired but I was still skeptical. 


I mean it’s the age of information and anyone could make up stories just to trend on the internet.

So I waited, I went to Pulse NG and they carried the news, went to Daily Post, BBC pidgin, as well as Legit NG, and these guys carried the news. 

Anita Isama ask for 7.8 million for monthly upkeep

It was at this point I thought to myself that maybe this could really be happening and it made me feel bad for the couple. 


Initially, I said I won’t write about it here on Shoutmeceleb Entertainment but then I noticed everyone started typing it into the search bar. 


So it is because of you I am writing this piece to break the news to you because it’s wrong for me to hoard it like the Nigerian government hoarded palliatives. 


Having said that, Anita dragged Paul Okoye to court on Friday when she filed for divorce. 


On the document which had some details blurred out, Anita stated irreconcilable difference as the reason for her decision. 


Although, what transpired between the couple has remained off the internet but fans are beginning to speculate.


Anita Isama Ask For 7.8 Million As Monthly Up Keep 


As the news continued to make the waves online, the story further developed as Anita Paul Okoye’s wife was Allegedly demanding 7.8 million Naira for upkeep. 


This did not sit well with many fans of Rudeboy with some of the fans citing how this could be setting dangerous precedence going forward.

Although it is something to worry about as asking for such a lofty sum means Anita would be making 93 million-plus Naira as spousal support. 


I mean the average Nigerian parents don’t even spend that a year on just upkeep but then it’s a conversation pertaining to one of the richest musicians in Africa


When I wrote about Mr. P and Rudeboy’s net worth, I discovered that both singers have a combined net worth of $31 million. 


I mean asking for $180,000 as yearly upkeep is nothing, right? 


Well, that’s true especially if you are Rudeboy who is worth $15 million. 


But this is where it gets crazy… 


Anita Okoye is asking this huge sum until the 3 kids she had with Rudeboy the other half of Psquare come of age.

Andre is 8 years old currently which leaves him 10 more years before he is 18 years old. 


And then there are the twins who are just 4 years old now and are left with 14 more years to reach 18 years of age. 


This means that Anita is asking for the 93 million Naira to be paid each year as spousal support. 


If we multiply this figure by 14 years which is the supposed year all kids reach 18 years of age then this amounts to 1.3 billion Naira.

U dated a man for good ten years and went ahead to married him for another seven years. Now u ve irreconciliable differences that made u seek divorce. I fear women!
