I remember that her father who was a governor bought her the latest model Mercedes then on the condition that she leaves Ojukwu and she refused. She stuck with him though he was not as rich as her dad. For anyone claiming that she married him for money, that's a big joke. Onoh is one of the wealthiest men in igboland. As for fame, Bianca was already famous, had won Miss nigeria, miss Africa and miss intercontinental. True love, case closed.

How about customary law?

Anonymous said...

"Ojukwu’s first wife was Elizabeth Okoli from ‘Nnukwu Awka’ (in Awka town) in Anambra State. She was a senior Nursing Sister, by profession. They got married between 1956 and 1958. Elizabeth’s father was the first Nigerian Post-Master General in Nigeria. He wedded her in court when he was a D.O., and they lived at Udi, Enugu but mainly at Aba. But the marriage suffered, maybe because she did not have a baby; so they divorced.

The marriage lasted for about two or three years, “but I cannot pin down the real cause of the divorce. Elizabeth later married one Dr. Onuorah, whom she had children with,” the cousin said.

Ojukwu’s second wife was Njideka, daughter of the once famous C.T. Onyekwelu from Nawfia, Anambra State. She had earlier been married to one Dr. Mends. His mother, Elina-Nwamama, was very popular then in Onitsha. Njideka had a set of twins for Dr Mends, a boy and a girl, before they quarrelled and separated.

Njideka and Ojukwu were said to have met through their fathers who were friends and business partners. After their first encounter, they met again three years later at a tube station in London. A relationship ensued soon after wards and culminated in a marriage, which produced three children, two of whom were named Emeka (Jnr) and Okigbo.

Njideka had said Ojukwu, “ is just a very kind man, very polite, not intrusive. He cared less about what happens in the kitchen; he just settles for whatever you offered him. He respected me and my opinion a lot. Later, when the children get across to him, he would ask them what my opinion was on issues and I loved him immensely in return.”

Another woman in Ojukwu’s life was Victoria, whom he met during his sojourn in Cote d’Ivoire. They were married till the early 80’s when Ojukwu was granted a state pardon by the then Nigeria’s president, Alhaji Usman Shagari.

Njideka and Ojukwu had what was called ordinance wedding then and the reception was in the family house, Eastern House in Lagos. Ojukwu married Njideka when he was the 5th Battalion Commander and they stayed on till he was appointed the governor of Eastern Region. The marriage ended in separation in Cote d’Ivoire when Ojukwu decided to marry a second wife. Njideka left him angrily.

It was in Cote d’Ivoire that the taste for female beauty in the Eze Nd’Igbo Gburugburu began to manifest. First, it was a fling with a little known damsel called Victoria. But the affair that really occupied his heart was with Stella Onyeador, sister of society lady, Angela Onyeador. According to reports, Onyeador warmed the ex-combatant’s bed for about 10 years before the relationship ended without producing any child.

“Emeka now became engaged to Stella Onyeador from Arochukwu in Abia State, who was Njideka’s chief bridesmaid during her wedding and my classmate in the university at Enugu Campus of University of Nigeria. She’s a lawyer by profession and moved to Cote d’Ivoire to join Emeka where he lived. She later came back to Nigeria with him in 1982. He asked us to perform the traditional rites at her father’s compound. If they did court marriage over there, I wouldn’t know. I will only tell you the things that I can swear for in court.

They later quarrelled and even went to court because they were fighting for the custody of a girl-child they adopted while in Cote d’Ivoire. Emeka was eventually awarded custody and ownership of the baby because the court said that under French law, a woman is not eligible to adopt babies, which was the case then in Cote d’Ivoire. They eventually separated. She died two years ago.

“When Stella left the picture, Bianca came, in 1989. But when Bianca was hustling with other girls to enter, Stella was still with Emeka. She was then in stiff competition with former Governor Sam Mbakwe’s daughter, one Barrister Onwuelo’s daughter from Nnewi and another beautiful girl, who I can’t recollect her name."

I once saw Bianca at Gatwick airport in 1996. I was captivated by her beauty but did not recognise her immediately. She entered the lift and I kept looking. She is really beautiful. After doors of the lift closed, I came back to my subconscious ness and later realised I just saw Bianca. Her beauty is captivating!

I put it to you all sentimental heads here, Bianca married Ojukwu because of fame and money. Yes, her father was wealthy, in Igbo land daughters do not inherit properties, only sons, but wives can inherit their husband's properties. Ojukwu gave her the best in his will and Ojukwu's family and children are fighting her in court over it.

@ anonymous @19.18

Ojukwu and Bianca traditional wedding ceremony was the biggest thing then, with all the titans of Nigeria and all the governors of the south east in attendance. I was one of the ushers then. Come see so many helicopters landing at the comprehensive school at Ngwo. So many dignitaries, so many dance groups and masquerades. Ojukwu rode in on a horse to the Venus and villagers lined the streets to welcome him. That is the first and only trad where I saw people spraying $100 bills on the bride when she was dancing. Oliver the coque, bright chimezie and Shina peters were the performers. It was just too grand. Back then we were paid 5000 naira each for our usher services and there were about 60 of us. It was just one great experience. If you blink, you would have missed something as so much was going on. The ceremony took place at Chief Onoh's vast and palatial mansion which looks more like a European castle at the hill top in Ngwo.

Chief Onoh, Bianca's father reluctantly agreed for a traditional wedding some years they married in church without his consent. Ojukwu had to beg through prominent intermediaries in Igbo land. Onoh was very very bitter over the relationship because Ojukwu was his close friend. Imagine your friend fucking your daughter!

Pretty Orie said...

Anonymous at20.01, you must have just crept out from a cave. Who told you daughters don't inherit properties in igboland? Stop displaying your ignorance and get your facts straight. Even under customary law, daughters can now inherit their father's properties. Onoh has over 147 properties in real estate. He was the biggest property mogul and landowner in the southeast during his lifetime. He left his family a fortune and I am quite sure Bianca was also a beneficiary. That's why I laugh at those who say she married ojukwu for money and fame. She was already famous and in those days had so many endorsement deals from so many brands then like bata, Mic products, Aventuras, velvetin cream and golds gym. She was always featured on one advert or another then on TV and was the most interviewed beauty queen
I was at the Law school then. Back in those days every girl wanted to be, and to look like Bianca. She looked like a mammywater. She was every young man's dream. Ojukwu dashed many dreams o!

@Orie. You are a revisionist. Take this: "The woman in Igbo land inherits her husband’s property because the wife of the man has right over the property of the man, irrespective of the sons, who can’t just throw the woman away from her matrimonial home. The house belongs to the children, when the woman is dead. But as long as she is alive, she has to be there, it’s her right by tradition,” he said.Corroborating what Ibezim said, Eze Edward Ibeabuchi of Okwulagha Afaraukwu noted that Igbo people do not bequeath property to women, especially married ones.

“We believe they should only partake from where they are married. But if she is not married, she has to be accommodated, when sharing her father’s property. When a father dies, his first son inherits his house. The first son then allots parcels of land to his siblings to build their own houses.

“A woman inherits her husband’s property and not the father’s,” he said. But if she has a love child, she won’t be driven from the father’s house; she and her child will be given a place to stay. While we cannot watch our daughters suffer because of customs and traditions, we also do not want to cause confusion and contradict the customs.”

Nigeria: Supreme Court Invalidates Igbo Customary Law Denying Female Descendants the Right to Inherit.
(May 6, 2014) On April 14, 2014, the Nigerian Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, confirmed decisions of two lower courts, which had found unconstitutional an Igbo customary law of succession excluding female offspring from eligibility to inherit the property of their fathers. (Lemmy Ughegbe, S’Court Upholds Female Child’s Right to Inheritance in Igboland, THE GUARDIAN (Apr. 15, 2014).)

Even with the Supreme Court Judgment in 2014, the Custom is still in place, just like the The Osu caste system, an obnoxious practice among the Igbos which has refused to go away.

But
Stella had been seeing Ojukwu even when she was at UNN during the war sef. Those that know, know. He loved her tire but as stated above he couldn't keep his eyes one place:-)
Stella was another pretty woman!
Njideka had been out of the pic for a while. She had 2 boys and a girl for Ojukwu.

Yup Sir Louis (Ojukwu's dad) and mine were distantly related.

As for the beautiful Bianca! Class of her own!! There was nothing her dad didn't promise to give her, so she would leave Ojukwu. This was a woman that many eligible men would have died to have o!! Love is something else sha!!

Ada ndi Anambra said...

Pls tell her o!!! Many Igbo dads do not joke with their daughter! Which is why rather than see her being maltreated, they will go and bring her home! By culture, an Igbo daughter can have kids at home.
Go and learn about what it means to be an Ada! In most Igbo places, you don't want to be reported to umu Ada/umu okpu! They will have you on your knees begging! Most decisions in their father's homes can't be taken without them.
In Igbo culture, it's only the dad's house in the village that traditionally goes to the son. Everything else he shares as he sees fit!

Yemi7up said...

Some Churches got lost in the grace God gave us and got mixed up in quest for money by giving so much freedom to dressing in Churches but thank God some churches have reviewed and corrected the wrong. You can't marry in RCCG showing all you've got exposed for pastors and guest.

Ada ndi Anambra said...

Maybe in your own family but in mine for generations, the women have been inheriting and given land and property!!
My cousins just sold their father's land and shared among all of them, men and women alike!

Fine woman. Bianca is the most accomplished beauty queen Nigeria has ever produced as far as I'm concerned. To become a presidential adviser and Ambassador is not a walk in the park. And now, she is United Nations Tourism rep for Nigeria. Her profile is intimidating and when compared to today's beauty queens she is a zillion miles apart.

Now I believe most people on blogs just say things they don't even know.She never married him for fame or money because she had that,she married ojukwu because young men were too scared to go close to her.She was too pretty,looked like a mami water.Ojukwu was the bold one and he loved her silly.Her father opposed these marriage too because of his age and also because ojukwu wanted to marry Bianca's mum years back but she choose Onoh.Get your facts right.

Benjamin said...

You are the one who need to get your facts right because you are talking what you don't know here. Are you saying every young guy was too timid to approach her? Is not accurate. I am familiar with their story. Firstly, Ojukwu had never knew Bianca's mother as she mostly lived in a convent with Irish nuns at Holy Rosary. Second, Ojukwu met Bianca when he went to their home on a traditional visit , and It is also on record that there was nothing the extremely rich Onoh did nort offer his love struck daughter for her to leave Ojukwu. True, Bianca was considered so beautiful that only a mamiwater could look that way, but that is not to say that all young men actually believed that she was a mermaid. Haba! This was the nineties, not the dark ages.

Anonymous said...

She was MBGN and not Miss Nigeria. She didn't marry him for money as others have said. More for the prestige of being Mrs Ojukwu, see where it has got her today. When you talk of fame, you cannot compare her fame to Ojukwu's because he made her popular. Yes, women inherit land in Igbo land, so marrying him for money isn't true. I wonder if it's true that she's a mammy water. She has captivating beauty and she's the only one in her family that looks like this.

Benjamin said...

Yes you are right that she was MBGN and not miss Nigeria. MBGN is the prestige pageant because only MBGNs can represent Nigeria at the 2 most important beauty contests in the world, which are Miss World and Miss Universe. Miss Nigeria doesn't have the opportunity to travel outside the shores of Nigeria to represent Nigeria in any International contest. They stay local.

I also agree that Ojukwu made her more popular though she was famous in her own right before they got together.
As for her being a mamiwater, I am not superstitious, and I doubt that most people are.

Your last point, though, is not accurate. Her late sister JoJo was her carbon copy. Beautiful and brilliant and made a first class in Law. Got her PHD at age 24 shortly before she died tragically in an air crash .she was actually the star of their family and anybody who has lived in Enugu where their family is likened to the kennedys, for most of their life, like me ,can confirm this.

Jojo wasn't her carbon copy. She was brown skinned and not as tall
