KWEEN ONOKALA PREGNANT AGAIN!
Neo-soul singer Kween Onokala disclosed to AyeniTheGreat exclusively last week that she has stayed back for so long in London for ‘‘very important reasons’’.
The fast-rising singer was based in London for several years until she returned home in 2006. And it’s taken nearly two years for Nigerians to accept her again, after she disappeared in the late 90s after her popular single olurounbi.
But now, tongues have been wagging about her return to London at a point when her career was just beginning to take shape again.
At a chance meeting in London last week, she denied reports that she had moved back to London. ‘‘I’m only here for a while. I really want to come back home. But I’ve been busy shooting videos and working’’.
‘‘But most importantly’’, she told me, ‘‘I’m processing some documents and I have to see it through before returning’’.
Kween’s only son Tyresse lives in London with her parents and it is believed she will continue to have a soft spot for the city for as long as her family is there.
What she left unsaid, and what’s unknown to many is that she’s pregnant again; and preparing to say ‘‘I do’’ to the man who means the world to her.
Investigations by AyeniTheGreat revealed that- though she may not say it- one of the most important reasons she’s staying back in London for so long, at a very sensitive point in her career, is because she has taken-in again.
The identity of the father of her first son Tyresse remains unknown. But we can authoritatively reveal that the man for whom she’s going to have her second baby is named Dotun Omotoye. The young, bespectacled entrepreneur is one of the owners of La Cachette, a popular hangout in Lagos.
Already, mutual friends say the couple are planning to get married in a matter of weeks. ‘‘He has proposed and she has agreed to marry him’’, a source close to the couple told me during the week.
It remains uncertain how the pregnancy and the upcoming wedding will affect the singer’s career. But it is worthy of note that her career was in a coma for nearly five years after she had her first baby in London. ‘‘She’s going to come back home and pursue her career; there’s no stopping her now’’, one of her close artiste-friends told ME on phone, while also confirming that ‘‘she’s expecting’’.
Her publicists at AO21 Media declined to comment.
Her long-anticipated debut Kweendoncome is scheduled for a late 2008 release.
