Beauty Queen Ethel Okosuns Faces Public Denial By Supposed Family Members





The Sunny Okosuns' family, has disowned claims by the popular queen and Nigeria project director, Exquisite Face of Africa, Ethel ‘Okosuns’, insisting lineage to the late singer Sunny Okosuns.

Ethel who was Miss Earth 2005 is known by associates with the surname ‘Okosuns’ and in September 2013, had granted an interview to a national daily during which she repeatedly flashed back to memories she held of her ‘father’ Sunny Okosuns, describing him as a man with a large heart, whom she misses and continues to draw inspiration from.


But the Okosuns family in a statement signed by the singer’s son, Sidney Ehimare Okosuns disowned Ethel.
‘We wish to state categorically that Ms. Ethel IS NOT our sibling. She is not the daughter of our father. Our father had four children: Sidney Okosuns, Michael Okosuns, Adesuwa Okosuns and Ebony Okosuns.
This is not the first time Ms. Ethel has used our late father’s image and likeness as “name dropping” to achieve whatever affluence she seeks. She needs to stop identifying herself as the daughter of the Ozziddi great musician.

Years ago, Ms. Ethel as a teenager wondered into our Yaya Abatan home.  Our parents ran a liberal attitude home, welcoming visitors and strangers to our sprawling Ogba Estate. Thus, our home was always busy with people from all walks of life.
Ms. Ethel walked into our home, pleaded with my dad that she wanted to sing and had no other place to live in Lagos. My parents welcome her to our compound, offered her unconditional food, shelter and love.She never left for several years. The generosity and kindness of providing her food and shelter does not give her automatic birth right to the Okosuns.”

Sidney Okosuns has demanded that Ethel submits herself for DNA testing.
”In these days of scientific proof, we demand that Ms. Ethel submit to a DNA test to prove us otherwise. The Okosuns family are ready to pay any amount for a DNA that would end this fraudulent identity theft.
