Wellu Master Wellu revealed via his Instagram account that he developed close relationships with other women while traveling in the United States.

He wrote:

“I want to inform you, dear friends, about a very unpleasant incident. I am not proud, but I know that this is the right thing to do.

“On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, I found it inappropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my beloved wife, Ozioma, my family and myself. 

“As I strive to be reconciled to God, repent and seek His forgiveness, I refrain from ministry work until I am fully recovered, knowing that this is true and that I am indebted to God and His people.

“To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you.

“Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgement is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.

“I want to take this moment and apologise to all fathers and mothers of the Faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behavior and moral failure.

“I won’t be here if not for your investment and belief in what God has called me to do. I sincerely apologize for this embarrassing situation.

“To all that have been a part of my ministry, followed my ministry or know me personally, I am truly sorry for disappointing you.

“I apologize for any pain or disappointment caused by the news of my moral failure and miscalculation, and I sincerely apologize for the disappointment.

“I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me.”

This comes barely 24 hours after an American-based woman, identified as African Doll, accused the singer of impregnating her.

The woman revealed this on Monday while talking to a YouTuber on Obodo Oyibo TV, stating that Okposo abandoned her after she told him that she is pregnant.
