Trivializing Spousal Abuse? “We Were Just Having Fun” – Nigerian Musician K-Solo & his wife Kikelomo retract Wife Beating Allegations



In June 2012, Kikelomo Oyeniyi, wife of Nigerian musician K-Solo (Solomon Oyeniyi) granted Nigerian weekly tabloid City People an exclusive interview. In the interview, she revealed intimate details about her relationship with her husband including how they met (on Facebook), how he reportedly scammed another woman online, how she paid for their wedding, how he stole from her and finally how he incessantly physically assaulted her in public (According to Kike, K-Solo beat her up at Shoprite after an argument over wine glasses) and at home (he reportedly threw a washing machine at her). The assault resulted in a miscarriage and according to Kike’s account, K-Solo prevented her from obtaining medical assistance. Click HERE to read the interview via LIB.

She also released photographs of her battered face and confirmed that the case had been reported to the Police authorities.

K-Solo responded by releasing a statement

Over the past three days, I have been inundated with phone calls, text messages and emails from fans, friends, family members and well wishers from all over Nigeria and abroad over allegations of wife battery, assault and thievery by my wife, Mrs. Kikelomo Oyeniyi, as contained in an interview she granted City People Magazine.
I make bold to say that as much as no union is without its own trials and tribulations, I have never laid hands on my wife and will never because have got sisters and a mother.

I am a hardworking young man that has been in the music industry for over a decade and do not need any woman’s wealth to live. This is our own trying time and we would surmount it one way or the other.

Mistakes have been made and they would be redressed, God willing. Let no man be the judge of another man’s deeds or misdeeds, let God and law take their courses. I hereby implore everybody to please appreciate and understand that this is a very difficult moment for me and my immediate family and would not wish to comment on this issue any further.

Fast forward a few months, now the couple seems to have reconciled and as illustrated by this Channels TV interview, they have reconciled and all is forgotten. In Kikelomo’s words, “We Were Just Having Fun

We are talking about this because spousal abuse/domestic violence is a big issue in Nigeria. We hope cases such as this do not undermine or trivialize the struggles that real victims face.

    this couple needs serious help and i aint talking no psychologist will make it worse. They need a good pastor for counselling. She needs to put her prayer cap on her home is under attack marriage is a convenant. So it only prayer and God that can change this home. Goodluck to you kike. But call a spade a spade abeg!

    This is just very pathetic. Do they think we are stupid enough to believe it was a prank? Even to say they reconciled for the fact she is pregnant would have been better than this cock and bull story they tried to say. RORBISH!!!

    This is exactly why I don’t feel bad for women who are in abusive relationship or domestic violence. They are adults, and they should keep their scars, swollen faces etc to themselves next time. Please, if anything happens again, don’t come out seeking the public to feel pity for you because you are obviously enjoying your life getting beat up.

    I am shocked to say the least.Its appaling and disturbing that learned people such as this can condescend so low as to fabricate a big fat lie to cover up an issue so serious as such.I particularly weep for the lady.You are a disgrace to womanhood.You would have saved yourselves the verbal humiliation you are receiving from the public by simply owning up and inform everyone that you are working seriously on making your marriage work and ksolo is also enlisting in a an anger management program. As a woman, you hold the ace in the home and you should try to tidy your home in a proper man and not making a nuisance of yourselves.

    ahh! i just read the city people interview.. is she trying to get ehr self killed? her family should help her before we hear she is dead..i doubt this k solo can make a 360degrees change especially when he is lying that it was all and act…if he had really changed he would at least admit that he did wrong and say he was a change man.. kikelome better run for your life …is it by force to stay married? so many nigerian women make this mistake and pay dearly for it…run kike run!

    its sad to see another woman falling a victim of k-solo again. this same guy was married to a friend’s elder sister. after the introduction, she even went as far as tattoo-ing a music symbol on her left upper arm with the name K-SOLO beneath it. after 2yrs on incessant beating she moved back to her parent’s house. infact it is common knowledge that his hobby is wife battery. when news of this incident got out, we felt if the new wife wasnt aware before atleast now she knows. but she apparently thinks its fun. we yorubas say “pasan ti a fi na iyale owa lori aja” the stick wey dem take beat 1st wife stil dey rooftop for new bride. her face never swell until she dies before she sabi as e dey go!

      that’s the problem with women in general…we always feel invincible and tend to generally assume our man’s “ex” is the crazy one. until we start seeing the same pattern and then we start looking for the ex…meanwhile, the ex is the first person we should be doing investigation on. me o i am paranoid like that…i send my spies to interview the ex and see if na amicable breakup or psycho tendency breakup. that’s a woman’s best source of information right there…your man’s ex. no matter how bitter she seems, its your JOB to seek the truth and try to understand what made them part ways. most men are set in their ways..once a wife beater…sorry more than likely always a wife beater. stop thinking you are invincible and special and that for some reason, a monster to another woman will be a prince to you. history is the best predictor of future behavior

    still boils down to the warped society that we lie in. This woman feels that she can’t exist or be respected as a single woman. So she has cowered to the pressure of supporting her husband despite his barbaric behaviour. It takes a lot of strength to walk away and so she would rather risk her life, believing that he will never hit her again than walking away. strong women need to rise up and stand in the gap for women who can’t walk away, hold seminars. collect funds from the govt to help emotionally, sexually n physically abused women. We need to rise up and fight. No man will fight this battle for us, only us…so let’s quit abusing her and cursing her and instead proffer solutions. God help us all.

    August 28, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I suspect that this is a damage limitation PR move. The need to repair Mr Ksolo’s damaged reputation must have brought about this farce and charade of an interview. What is obvious to me, is that the Ksolos, along with whoever advised them that saying that the domestic violence palaver was a prank, have profoundly low intelligence levels. How else does one explain it? They actually think that people will believe this hogwash about it being a prank??? For Kikelomo, I feel sad that she would so casually sign her death warrant and consign herself to living hell, but at the end of the day, that is her choice, except a gun was held to her head or her child was being held ransom in order that she grant this interview retracting her previous claims of abuse, there is just no excuse for this.
    I remember reading this story on LIB and a couple of the commenters said that they had actually witnessed the shoprite beating, so what are these idiots talking about?
    Domestic violence is an extremely serious issue, which has resulted in the deaths of so many women and is still resulting in such deaths, most unreported, yet these two fools, court jesters, and oponu aiyerayes are claiming that they staged an allegation of domestic violence as a prank???!!!

    I actually feel sorry for this woman. Now her husband has the opportunity to exact vengeance for her taking him to the Court of Public Opinion. It would have been better if they claimed to have reconciled. But to say it was a joke? That is downright stupid and inconsiderate. It just trivialises what thousands of women go through everyday. Next time an abused/batered woman cries out for help, people will say it is a joke.

    Kikelomo, I pray that God restores your marriage and that your husband truly changes, if not, YOU ARE DEAD.

    She must have been missing the abusive contact. Her unreliability is what confirms that she is severely abused. This is probably one of many abusive relationships she has been in.
    Hopefully she survives this one.
    As an aside, a friend of mine in that was in this kind of relationship, interpreted the rough contact as a sign of love and it was some sort of aphrodisiac for them.
    lady, we are waiting for you to prove us wrong. Go get some therapy
