HRM Benjamin Ikenchukwu Keagborekuzi I, Obi (Dein) of Agbor Kingdom in Delta State, is one of Nigeria’s highly-revered kings. The 43-year-old king ascended the throne at the age of 2.5 years and is the 18th king of the kingdom. Not many know that the Dein is married as he lives a private life devoid of controversy.
When asked in an interview sometime back with PUNCH about his marital status, the Dein said, “I’m married already to a strong beautiful woman. I met her at an event I attended. Only God knows how the United States, as big as it is, was able to find an Agbor woman for me. Honestly, it was very strange. I thank God because I wasn’t expecting to have met an Agbor woman there.”
On what attracted him to his wife, the Dein added, ” First, she is very beautiful. And I like strong women. My wife is a warrior; that attracted me to her because I also want my children to be warriors. What your wife is, is what she will pass to your children. A good wife will make you, while a bad wife will break you.”
