Veteran Nigerian hip hop singer Eddy Montana, who separated from his ex-wife, Kenny Saint Brown years ago, and has since remained single, however revealed that the marital crisis he had then affected his music career.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Eddy admitted that having a failed marriage is the lowest point of his life. He stated:
“I don’t have any low point apart from my failed marriage. Things were going fine for me until I started having problems with my marriage. It was possible I could have saved it if I had put in more effort but I am also human.
Right now, I have grown and I know we all make mistakes as humans. I made my mistakes and she (Kenny Saint Best) must have made hers too. Do you think anyone is perfect?”
Eddy, however, stated that despite the apparent differences between him and KSB, they are still good friends. Explaining why he reduced the pace at which he was doing music, he revealed that his marital troubles affected his desire to do music for a long time.
“For years, I did not put out songs. You would remember that my marriage was in trouble and I broke down emotionally. My doctor didn’t want me to get back to work because of my state of health and mind.
“I lost my marriage and my kids were not with me as well. I had to take a break for my health and my children because different stories were written about me and I didn’t want my kids to grow up with that tension. Even though my music suffered, it was very important for me to take a break at that time.”
