Nedu Wazobia proceeded to conduct a DNA test on all his children, following his discovery of multiple infidelity on the part of the wife. He purportedly did so at a Toronto, Canada medical testing facility – Viaguard Accu-metrics. And sadly, it turned out that Nedu is not their son’s biological father. He went ahead to post the test result on social media. 

But his ex-wife insisted that she did not cheat on Nedu Wazobia during the period while they were married. Observers pointed out that she was visibly pregnant during their wedding. But she claimed that she had unknowingly gotten pregnant for her ex before tying the knot with Nedu.

Nedu has since moved on with another lover. He posted pictures of the said lady on Instagram sometime in 2023.
