Osinachi Nwachukwu’s second son celebrates first birthday without mum

Ekene Nwachukwu, second son of the late gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu, has celebrated his first birthday without his mother.

Osinachi’s twin sister, Amarachi Eze took to Facebook on Friday to share a photo of her sister’s children celebrating the boy’s birthday.

The kids held a picture of their dead mother with smiles on their faces as they posed for a photo shoot in their room. The room was decorated with a blue cake, drinks and snacks.

Captioning the photo, Amarachi who could not hold back her tears, promised to take care of her sister’s children, adding that they will all be reunited in heaven someday.

She wrote: “Wow! My beloved friends, Please, Join me and wish my late sister’s second Son #Ekene a happy birthday (Great Child)!

“It’s your 1st birthday without your Mon and I can’t promise it’ll get easier, but with God, it is well with you my son and my promise is… I will always be here for you and your siblings and As you Celebrate your birthday, heaven will also celebrate you in Jesus Name! Amen …Son Enjoy, till when we’ll be reunited with her in heaven someday. I so much Love you!! Son”.

In a recent video posted on Youtube, Amarachi who is also a gospel singer revealed that they have been battling many challenges including their inability to pay their rent and cater to the needs of the four children Osinachi left behind.

In the video, she said: “I am Amarachi Grace Eze, late Osinachi’s twin sister. The death of my sister left me and my family heartbroken. And she also left behind four kids and she was the one helping our family. The court served us a letter that their rent expired 13th of April 2022, and they are expected to leave the house.

“So far, the Honourable Minister for Women Affairs has rendered help to us. She followed up the case to see that my late sister gets justice. She has written to 2 South East governors (name withheld) and their wives but no response. We need help desperately to take care of the four children. Yes we need justice but her children’s welfare is important. Help us please“.

Amarachi and Osinachi were part of the defunct gospel group Glorious Singers known for songs like ‘Jigidemaka’, ‘Somebody is Knocking’, ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Onyeoma’. The group disbanded after some of its members decided to pursue solo careers.

Osinachi died on April 8 at the National Hospital, Abuja. She is alleged to have been subjected to years of domestic abuse.
