DNA: Calabar-based OAP, not the biological father of children
Popular Calabar-based radio host, Kanedrick Kingsley, popularly known as Fada Kane, has revealed that he’s not the biological father of his two 20-year-old children.
The FAD, 93.1FM Calabar host, published a court affidavit and details of an alleged DNA test that showed that he was not the children’s biological father, which his ex-girlfriend, Mary-Ann Duke, claimed were his.
“This is to inform the general public that I, Kanedrick Kingsley Agwu, popularly known as Fada Kane, is not the biological father of Anthonia Duke and Paul Duke as alleged by one Miss MarryAnn Efa Duke.”
“Attached here are the copies of DNA and court affidavit to ascertain my claims further,” he added.
Fada Kane then advised his ex-girlfriend and her family to take legal action if they wanted to contest the DNA test result.
The radio host had revealed that he became a father when he was 16. According to him, Miss Duke told him he was responsible for her pregnancy.
He said his parents kicked him out of the house when they were told he had impregnated his girlfriend.
”As soon as my mom heard ‘I’m pregnant for your son,’ wahala set. I was just 16. At 17, I was already an alleged father of 2. I was thrown out of the house, hurt and shamed by families and friends.”
“They made me guilty even when I was innocent. I could remember the day a kid boomed on me, dragged me on my shirt with my name constantly on their lips, calling me a useless father. So now you want me to suck it in?”
Fada Kane’s story is similar to that of another radio host and comedian, Chinedu Àní, popularly called Nedu, who found out that his first son with his ex-wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri, was not his biological offspring after a DNA test.
