5 Star Music boss Emeka 'E-Money' Okonkwo and his wife Juliet Okonkwo opened up about their rags to riches love story in an interview on Sunday Punch.
Narrating her love story, Juliet Okonkwo said she met E-Money in a video shoot by Julius Agwu in 2003. She said they started as friends before they started dating. Four years later they were married. According to E-Money he met Juliet when he was struggling to make money. "I was looking for a God-fearing lady who wasn't excessively concerned with material possessions and who I could plan with a future with. Fortunately, I found those qualities in her" explained E-Money on why he chose Juliet as his wife.
"When we started dating, my friends were surprised that I sidestepped all the rich guys in Lekki, where I was resident for a man who lived in Ajegunle but I was not bothered. I looked forward to getting a good job upon my graduation from the university. He didn't even have enough money to take us back to Lagos after our traditional marriage" Juliet said. "KCee was the one who lent me N20,000. I used it to pay our fare in Lagos" further added E-Money.
E-Money said things turned around for him when he was awarded a $2m contract. Now, E-Money and Juliet have three sons. Juliet lives in the United Kingdom, and E-Money visits her every two weeks.
E-Money's label 5 Star Music was involved in a PR move gone bad over the death and resurrection of its artiste, upcoming singer Skiibii last weekend.
