Queen of Aso Nigeria 2014 – Florence and Bright

Friends and family are crying foul as winner of Queen of Aso Nigeria 2014, an Abuja-based beauty pageant Florence Esu is engaged to her friend’s husband, Dr. Bright Echefu, four months after the friend died during pregnancy.

The pair got engaged this past Saturday, December 19, 2015 and invited Queen Of Aso Nigeria 2009 Jennifer Igwegbe and other members from the pageant’s management team.

Friends and some family members, including Cindy’s cousin, have taken to Facebook and Instagram to pour out their suspicions and frustrations on Bright moving on too quickly, in their opinion.

A photo of his new fiancee is now his profile picture on his Instagram page.

He has replied,

“Engagement doesn’t mean we have been sleeping with each other. She is the only friend I can keep in the care of kids.”

He also added his late wife’s family fully supports him and even his late wife would support him if she was alive, saying,

“My late wife’s family are [sic] fully aware of this decision and they knew I did it for the sake of our kids” and “The Cindy I have known and loved so dearly is part of this decision.”

      At 4 months he should not even be getting engaged to anyone. How do you even conceive of the notion of marrying anyone 4months after your spouse is gone not to talk of a friend. even if she was a stranger it would be disrespectful to his wife’s memory talkless of her friend.

    Wait??????? Say what? Huh? When I thought I have heard it ALL. I went to Nigeria some time & a close FAM friend told me this same story happened to her sis & I just tho she was bluffing. Haba? Your dead friend is only gone for 4 months and U’re about to take over her bubby? Hmmm if it was overseas, U’re definitely a suspect.

    For Pete’s sake, I just don’t understand how people do certain things, why they do it & how comfy they are while doing it. I mean I gerrit if yrs down d line they get hitched . Nevertheless, what do I know and who am I to tell grown folks how to live their lives. She’s bold I tell U. The fear that will descend on me alone; is enough to respect myself. R.I.P. Cindy

    No, no, no!!! The guy should have held off on the engagement. If the ‘engagee’ really loved her late friend, she would have not accepted the engagement just yet. Haba, 4months is still fresh na, for someone to move on from his late wife! Kai,,,

    This life. If a Woman had done this, they’ll say she’s an asewo or omo komo. Unbelievable! Any reasonable girl with a heart won’t accept it, especially not too soon. If you even agree to date/marry your late friend’s husband after 2 years, it’s still questionable and odd. They don’t have the fear of God in them and they have no shame. The guy should stop lying, his late wife’s family isn’t in support, there’s NO WAY that’s possible. 4 months?!! ?? Wow.

    This is all shades of wrong! Is this the best you can do for your late wife , the mother of your children who was pregnant with your third child before she died ?? I can see you have no shame but what about conscience ?? And they always have the dumbest answer ever , ” she’s the closest person I trust , I did it for the kids…” What nonsense! Does she have to be engaged to you to be able to take care of her late friend’s kids ? Meanwhile any woman capable of doing this to her late friend, is also capable of hurting the kids !

    At this point , we don’t want to be distracted with this stupidity , we want an instant investigation on your wife’s death!

      Its just wrong. I lost my mum when I was 7 years old and dad waited for almost 5 years before getting married again. For that alone, I’ve got so much respect for him. He was looking after 3 kids and he had a very demanding job. Its just sad.

      Maybe this is not the right place to ask this question – but what’s wrong with that? If you like a person, you likely like people that are like that person as well, right? So it would make sense for some people to just stay in the same community.
      It’s actually the custom in many cultures…to inherit a spouse, to share a spouse, …
      But also think of people who marry an athlete then another then another. Or people who marry in royal families or billionaires clubs. People who stick with writers. These are small cliques too, right?

    Wetin cosign us sef? We Nigerians too like amebo. That said, ladies see why you shouldn’t die on top man matter? After you are dead and buried, he won’t waste time in moving on. I had a funny argument with my family this morning – dad, mum & cousin’s wife. I told them point blank that no one can take my man away from me unless he wants to be taken. I can not kill myself to keep a man. Everyone has a reason for getting married, some family status, some financial reasons, I can’t judge them. Mine is to have kids. Once I have them, I am satisfied. Even if a man doesn’t come along, I will adopt. It is better to aim for the moon and get the sun than to aim for the stars and get the sun. My mum just looked at me in disbelief and had to ask my dad if she was the one who raised. My cousin’s wife said experience is the best teacher. Yes, I agree but sometimes people just have different ideologies and mentality about life. The day is not over yet and see the news I’m hearing. I know she died in labour but well………I had a cousin who died in labour to the world, to us the fam, she died due to a man’s ego. Wife is in labour for more than 11 hours, you cannot afford cs but you know she has a family than is more than capable to afford one. You didn’t tell anyone but instead went to ori-oke to kabash. Let’s just say RIP ended the story. So well……irrelevant rant over. I maintain, I cannot kill myself on top man or man pikin #okbye

    What a shameless move on both parts. If there was an award for worst friend and husband of the year, they take the cake. Hmmm how did the friend die self? I won’t be surprised if they both connived to kill her so that they can get married.

  23. whocares

    December 23, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    To get engaged, you would have crossed certain levels of intimacy right? (no not necessarily sexual) so if you got engaged after 4 months, when did you start courting, or discussing marriage( marriage people, not just relationship) is it before she died, or as soon as she got buried or when? The problem here is not that he cannot move on with his life but to marry someone so soon? A marriage? For better or worse for life type of marriage. He is not hiring her to be a nanny for his children o.. He is marrying her. And for the man to respond that he is doing this solely for his kids… So in the four months your wife has passed away, you are unable to care for your kids or family members are not available to help that you need to get married so you can have a live in child minder? Also, way to go man, nice way to make the woman in your life feel special saying you married her solely for the children. Ema tan ara yin. This ‘tory is not complete at all and I dont even care to know any more about it. It is such a distasteful circumstance.

      Lets leave juju/voodoo out of the equation, its just plain distasteful to engage your late wife friend after 120days ANNNNND make it public!!!! Like, the wifes body is still warm!

      And how do you make your bride-to-be feel like the nanny? couldn’t you just pay someone for that? i bet she feels like the queen of everything right now.

This two florence and bright have a hand in Cindy’s death. Moreover Esu in my language means the Devil. any way it wish them luck in their love our nanny hiring employment.

    Florence you probably had an eye on your friend’s man…okay even if you did for God’s sake she only died few months ago….can’t you wait???? I feel so sorry for Cindy’s kids. May God protect them cos its this kind of step mums with missions that I fear the most. You are a disgrace Florence. Even if he first approached you for God’s sake Cindy was your friend. I can’t even talk about the Cindy’s husband because he doesn’t have a heart… Senseless man….I am pissed.

  25. Segi

    December 23, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    With a friend like florence, you clearly don’t need an enemy. Alot is going through my mind regarding these two vile creatures. Kai, it wasn’t as if she was dying and you’ve been grieving for a while, she passed ‘unexpectedly’; I hope! Both individuals should be investigated biko. As for you Florence, you surely will get yours, that my dear is a guarantee.

    In my 4 month experience, I have come to realize that no man is worth dying for. My case would have been like late cindy but thank God I came out of my marriage alive. In fact I was a walking corpse unknown to me. My ex husband and my maid had finished me but thank God for his mercy upon my life. My ex husband planned my death. Sent a guy to come work for me in my company. I never knew he was on a mission. I was extremely nice to this guy. Just my nature. This guy conscience wouldn’t allow him carry out his assignment. A week after his stay, he came to me saying he needed money to buy airtime. I gave him 1500 naira. He was surprised. He was expecting 100 naira or so. So he called my ex husband and was like are you this is the woman you told me about, my ex husband said yes. When my ex husband came back from his trip, I welcomed him with joy. This particular guy was still at the bq. I saw both of them talk time without number but I felt it’s normal man to man discussion. One day, these two had a misunderstanding over you must do it and I can’t do it. I didn’t understand so I mind my business. I was always fond of minding my business. That I will never do again! My traveled, then this guy walk up to me asking me for forgiveness. I told him he never offend me but he said he did. He said his conscience is not letting him rest. He said he had a mission and he was promised to be paid some certain amount of money. I asked what mission and by who? He said daddy…sent me. I was shocked. In fact so many confessions. It wasn’t a thing of shooting me, poisoning me or stabbing me with weapons but he came loaded with charms that would have made my enemy sleep and not wake up. They would have claimed it was stress that killed my enemy. What did I do? Where have I failed as a wife? It’s not enough that I’ve been in an abusive marriage for 4yrs and now it’s to end it by eliminating my enemy. I would have appreciate it if he had told me the marriage could no longer work instead of going extreme. Only for me to hear that my maid who told me she was returning to her village was carrying his child. His plans were exposed right to his face. My ex husband begged saying it was the devil work. I needed nobody to tell me to leave. In fact the kind race wey I pick eh, I no remember carry my belongings and dat of my child. I found myself in my father’s house. My dad had not given out my room. My room was still intact lol. These are just summary. I’m happier than ever. My child is happy. My parents are glad to have me alive. Like my dad said, abeg sit down here make I dey look you…lol. An average Nigeria man is wicked. Please my sisters it is better to be called after one, after two, after plenty children sef than to be called late so so so and so biko. May late cindy soul rest in peace. Merry Xmas in advance everyone…

    Am not surprised at all. Don’t know them, but I remember clearly, when the late Cindy died. I saw it on Facebook, because the so called husband posted at least 150pictures. I got unnecessary suspicious, and asked my husband,how is it possible for a mourning widower to have time to snap all these pictures and still post them on his account. And also have time to be replying comments. He started posting pictures from when she was sick until she was laid to rest.
    Am not going to judge,all I can say is HML to Florence

      That’s how my former oga in my former office was radiating with excitement when he lost his wife to cancer .
      some of us were already looking morose when he was coming back to the office. By the time he arrived he was talking as if he just got back from a trade fair. Laughing and cracking jokes about the point she was declared dead. And cracking jokes.

      In my mind I thought this man is happy to be free to marry a young wife. In about 6 months the man married one small pretty girl. I heard the deceased had been the one struggling on all fronts to make the man a financial sucess which he is today.the man has money like anything.

      Has absolutely nothing to do with been single, married or in missionary/ polygamy but the individual mind of a human being. Or are u saying when one is married one can do no wrong? If that is your point then just ignore this “thesis” I wrote because that thought process is on another level.

  51. The real dee

    December 24, 2015 at 4:50 am

    When people start asking why married friends stay away from their single friends after marriage, this could be one of the reasons. For goodness sake, her best friend, not just any friend, BEST FRIEND. They couldn’t have fallen in love to the point of getting engaged in just 4 months, either the husband or the friend may have been ‘eyeing’ the other.
    Married woman, when your friend(married or single) starts telling you she wishes she had a man like your husband or she wishes your husband was hers or you try and hook her up with someone and she says, she’d have been happier if she had someone like your husband, even if its jokingly, better pack your two legs and run like a deer.
    Married man, when your friend starts telling you he wants a woman like your wife, he wishes he met your wife before you did, his life will be better if he had a woman like your wife, better take to your heels. Some people have a desperately wicked heart and would go to the most evil length to get what they want.

Let them live and be happy…why do we enjoy seeing people suffer? 4 months and 5 years, how does that change anything? The fact still remains his wife is gone and he has to make the best decision for him and his family…would it be better if he is having secret affairs for 5 years before getting married? Let’s learn to mind our business as Nigerians and focus on what is important! Even you bella, why carry this story? What is the point you are trying to make? I don’t know them personally; but, I know it is not for us to judge how a widower decides to get his life back #lifeistooshort

As for u Florence hope u know that the same way u were sleeping with him is the same way Abj gals will sleep with him if u like go and tight ur pot well the prayers of many can never ever go in vain.

    I can see why this is a practical arrangement – to fill the gap, to care for the kids… No need to go running up and down looking for a new person when all the characteristics are right there waiting.

    I can see why the backlash. I’ve read that in Igbo custom there’s a terrible and mandatory mourning period. At least that ensures say no be the spouse kill the other one.

    As Emir Sanusi said and y’all have refused to hear marriage is not all about sex. It is not all about money. It is not all about anything really. It’s nothing to be jealous about, nothing to pray or wish for, and certainly nothing to kill for.

    Both of them should be arrested as they are the prime suspects in the death of the young pregnant woman. Investigations should actually be initiated. Why would a healthy young lady with two young children suddenly develop such problem that will kill her instantly in pregnancy one week after her birthday? Obviously she was poisoned. Women be careful of your friends! !!Frenemies everywhere!
    Florence you don’t belong to your late friends bed snuggling in the arms of her husband. Why you no fit see your own since after all your hustle. Na wa o
    At least give her respect for a few months.
    Is the death of such a young woman a joke?
    God have mercy! As for Dr Bright let God be the judge in this. It is well with the children.

    Dear Amebos, Judginas and Judgettes

    I don’t know where or how he married his late wife but if you have ever attended a church wedding you would know that the vows exchanged expires at the point the soul leaves the body i.e. it is ’till death do us part’.

    I have never heard an exchange of vows where either of the couple promises to hold fast to the vows after death. Have you?

    Pls quit being so retrograde, irrational and judgmental. The marriage is over. Forever. There’s nothing he can do about it. Plus he did not kill his wife! So what’s the big deal? I bet you would have a different opinion if it was a divorce and he got engaged the following day.

    Some of you say he should mourn his deceased wife for varying durations. But even the bible says let the dead bury the dead. 4 months is long enough. Abi you ppl just want the guy to be miserable, as if the sudden passing of his wife n unborn child is not enough trauma for him.

    Pls use your brains to introspective and review yr own life and decisions. Let others live their own lives as they deem fit without your long nose following them around.

    I wish the couple a blissful future together.

    …and no, I don’t know them

    If you watch “Forensic Files” on HLN, “Dateline on TLC,” “Snapped”on Oxygen Network or “The First 48” these are not scripted reality shows, but involves real crimes, murders, and homicides. When “mysterious deaths ” like this occurs, the significant other or a close relative or friend are usually the FIRST one to be brought in for questioning. In most cases, autopsy is usually done to identify to cause of death, or the dead body exhumed to determine the cause of death, or the investigators will carefully monitor the pattern, the body language, and everything surrounding the widow or the widower But when a husband or wife marries FOUR MONTHS after the death of a loved one. Such a one should be carefully investigated.
    And, in this case, the husband about to be married the wife’s friend solidifies the case, that you might be dealing with a calculated murder with ONE INTENTION (to get rid of one, and to marry another)
    Scientifically speaking, a thorough murder investigation should be conducted and an autopsy should be done to determine to cause of the wife’s mysterious death.

That case is very rare !! And for a 3rd time mom? Haba? I smell a big rat!! Echefu is a doc he knows what to do or say so no one raises eye brows . And in Naija we all leave it to God to handle .

      I was shocked when I saw the florence screaming on fb I will marry you and one other meme stating when you and your wife owns a business she tags him saying roger that . One thing I know judgement day will be very interesting. Gods case no appeal . My prayers are with the late girls parents , silblings and her kids. People forget that every one must taste death and give account to God one day. I have not been my self since I read this story and when I saw the husband’s post on fb. From her death bed to her funeral .. I knew something not right here!!

      Meaning that the husband knew the woman wAs going to die and was already taking the pictures he took right from when she was sick till she died which he posted on Facebook. How can a man be taking pictures of your wife on a sick bed. Who takes such pictures? Was he expects she’d die? #just saying

    Scripturally, he has done no wrong – he’s marriage was over in GODs eyes after the demise of the late wife. The morality of his action is the issue here, four months is a rather short time to get engaged to someone else. In most instances, proximity would determine who a widower usually ends up with, the lady would likely have been in the background with some emotional attachment and it doesn’t have to be sexual. A divorcee friend hooked up with a fellow church member a year after his wife left him cos she was there for him at a trying period and had always been his friend – not much difference here. Although, they should have waited a little longer.

As someone close to both couples, the story isnt all that was posted. Yes there was an engagement, but NO cindy and florence weren’t friends. But its not my story to tell as the victim will be coming out soon with facts. Till then, bloggers should be careful how they post stories just because they feel its gossip worthy and it’ll create traffic on their blogs. There is a new ammendments bieng made in the constitution on press against false informations. Those involved I.e bloggers can be sued and jailed. Be advised!
