Pastor Ahenkan, the ex-husband of the sensational gospel musician, Esther Smith has finally come out to debunk claims that he physically and emotionally abused his wife of four years. Esther Smith has claimed that she was abused by the 'man of God' in several past interviews.
According to Pastor Ahenkan who is now in Ivory Coast for pastoral duties, he married Esther Smith because of love not for any other reasons. According to him, their marital problems started when he bought panties for their 'house help' which he said was an innocent act of appreciation for the young girl. This then degenerated into other trust issues.
Esther Smith had three children with him but according to Pastor Ahenkan, Esther Smith left one of the children for him during a visit and she has not had any form of contact with that child since. He added that the singer has also denied him of contact with the other two children.
Pastor Ahenkan, speaking on the Peace FM Entertainment Review show, said that indeed they had problems in their marriage as every marriage does but did not cheat on his wife with any church member, or physically assault his wife of four years and the mother of his children. On Esther Smith's recent marriage, Pastor Ahenkan says he wishes her well. He also pleaded with the gospel to check on her child in Ivory Coast, and also allow him to have contact with his other two children in Ghana.
