Julius Agwu, a veteran comedian and actor, has denied allegations that he said his ex-wife, Idire Maclayton was married to him, for financial gains.
According to some media outlets, Agwu hinted in an interview that it is possible his ex-wife " may have married to him primarily for financial status at the time".
Julius Agwu, however, contradicted this claim during an Instagram live chat with social media influencer Daddy Freeze.
Daddy Freeze: “They said you said your wife, IB, married you because of money. Please, address that.”
Julius Agwu: “I was interviewed by The Punch. I never said anything like that. I saw that thing recently, Segun Arinze sent it to me.
“I can never debase myself like that. My former wife never married me for any money. And Julius Agwu never said that. She is the mother of my children. I can never say something like that about her.”
