Failed Marriage Ruined My Career – Eddy Montana
You might be a toddler or unborn when he ruled the Nigerian music scene with his group Remedies.
His name is Eddy Montana and he was one of our favorite vocalists of the late 90s and early 2000s.
It was more like Eedris Abdulkareem and Tony Tetuila just complemented him on stage and in the studio.
However, after the group broke up, only Idris and Tony went on to make successful solo careers while he pretty much continued to struggle.
Why this thing happens to group leads, we still cannot explain but Eddy Montana seems to know his own problems were peculiar.
The veteran singer who was once married to singer, Kenny Saint Brown, says his failed marriage ruined his then thriving music career.
“I don’t have any low point apart from my failed marriage. Things were going fine for me until I started having problems with my marriage. It was possible I could have saved it if I had put in more effort but I am also human.
“Right now, I have grown and I know we all make mistakes as humans. I made my mistakes and she (Kenny Saint Best) must have made hers too," he said.
He went on to share how he took a break from his children so as to clear the news that was being spread around about him.
"For years, I did not put out songs because I broke down emotionally. My doctor didn’t want me to get back to work because of my state of health and mind.
“I lost my marriage and my kids were not with me as well. I had to take a break for my health and my children because different stories were written about me and I didn’t want my kids to grow up with that tension.
“Even though my music suffered, it was very important for me to take a break at that time,” he concluded.
