I’m ready for a new husband – Kenny Saint Best

Kenny Saint Brown

Ten years after the collapse of her union with Edward Ashiedu Brown, better known as Eddy Remedy, gospel singer, Kenny Saint Best says she is ready to give marriage another shot.

In an interview with Saturday Punch, Kenny Ogungbe’s younger said her pact with God is to have a man to call her own by the time she is 50.

Hear her: “I told God that when I am doing my 50th birthday, there must be a man beside me. That is the deal I struck with God. It is exactly ten years that I have been single, so I am ready now. I was waiting for my children to grow and become teenagers so that I would have given them all of my time so that there would not be divided attention between them and the new daddy or husband. Now I am through with all that, I am ready for a new husband.”

The former Kennis Music A&R manager’s shock marriage to Eddy, an artiste under the label and lead singer of the defunct group, The Remedies, was dogged by controversy from start to finish. It however produced two children, Edwina and Kennedy.

Speaking on how she copes as a single mother, the ‘Turn Me Around’ singer said it has been by “mega grace” of God.

“I ask myself if I am human sometimes because I combine a lot of things together. As we speak, I am at a rehearsal and before I left home, I had to make lunch, do the laundry and I would still check my children’s homework because their exam is coming up.

“I cannot afford to delegate duties when it comes to my children. What you want to see in the future is what you put in the picture now, so I can never be too busy for my children and my ministry. I am a church girl to the core. It has been the grace of God,” she said.

Formerly known as Kenny Saint Brown, the singer earned public odium in 2012 after comparing her marriage to that of late Whitney Houston who was once married to singer Bobby Brown.

Kenny said as one ex Mrs Brown to another, the two female singers had some things in common.

A firestorm of criticism by fans forced her to apologise for “for my blunders from a bereaved mind.”
