The world literally seems to be crumbling right under the feet of the Golden Boy of Nigerian football Nwankwo Kanu and now a damning Instagram post by angry wife, Amarachi, has laid bare serious cracks to his marriage of 13 years.
Amarachi fired full salvo at her husband’s younger brother Ogbonnaya after he boasted he was at a Leeds United game: “You are a coward and a liar. That’s my son’s ticket.
“He was supposed to follow his dad to the Leeds game today but no. You have never allowed Kanu to be in peace with his family.
“You tried all that with me all these years thinking I will die and now you want to come near my children. You can’t. You won’t.
“Oloshi Oloribuku. Borrow pose. @Ogbobikee1 don’t mess up with my children’s things or their dad.”
Ogbonnaya, himself a former footballer is married to the sister of celebrity blogger Linda Ikeji.
In 2007, KICK OFF Nigeria Magazine named Kanu the richest Nigeria football star as he had business interests ranging from the hospitality industry to oil and gas.
The net worth of his businesses at a time was more than three billion Naira.
But it now all seems that life outside the pitch has not been kindly scripted for the man who was nicknamed ‘King’ at Portsmouth.
It is understood that he lost millions of dollars in several business ventures with the climax being the sealing off of the Hardley Apartment Hotel in Lagos, which at it’s height employed over 150 people.
Last week, he raised alarm through a statement published by SCORENigeria: “My heart bleeds, not just because my prized possession which emerged out of my blood and sweat as a career footballer is at the risk of being taken away from me under the weight of an intractable/belligerent government apparatus unjustifiably, but also because of the imminent defeat of the major objective for its establishment (to cater for the Kanu Heart Foundation).”
We also reported that he has sold the slot of his pet club Papilo FC in the second-tier Nigeria National League (NNL) to Calabar Rovers.
