It was a revitalized Catherine Obiang , the estranged wife of popular host of TV game show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Frank Edoho that stepped out last weekend at a concert in Lagos. Before this time, the ex-NTA/ Classic FM presenter had maintained a low profile, following her messy and much publicised separation from her hubby, which hit the media in March.

Looking elegant in her trademark crew-cut and donning a jean with an armless top, the TV gal of Cameroon descent has brushed aside the sad ordeal of her marriage break up to hit the social circuit at full throttle. Catherine Edoho was among the celebrities that stormed the imposing New Expo Hall of the Eko Hotel and Suites, last weekend for rapper, Ice Prince's album launch/concert tagged: E.L.I (Everybody Loves Ice Prince).

Although, she tried to evade the prying eyes of paparazzi, the mother of three, who was in the company of a female friend, thoroughly enjoyed herself to the hilt. She also rocked and grooved to music of top hip hop artistes on parade at the show including, Tuface Idibia, M.I and Wizkid among others.

What began as a celebrated union between the two highflying TV personalities finally packed up for good early this year after reports of abuse and domestic violence. This was the climax of the relationship which first began to show some cracks four years ago. In reality, the couple have been separated for a year and had only been struggling to make things work. In their first public outburst in 2007, Catherine had gone to the press to describe her hubby as a “beast” who beats her silly at the slightest provocation after fleeing her matrimonial home for that of her family in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroun. However with his tails between his legs, Frank Edoho who is also a highly sought after compere and voice over artiste put aside his ego and went to beg his wife.

Less than three years after their reunion, the couple again fell apart and this time there is certainly no chance of reunion as both individuals have been linked to new romances after the painful and shocking split. With a tone of resignation, Frank Edoho in July went on twitter, the popular social networking site and posted thus: “Hey people, I just want you to know that I would never do anything to hurt my family. But sadly, I am separated from my wife and it's irreconcilable. We've been separated for over a year now and I want to say Kathy is a great mum and a good person. But it wasn't working. When I talk about what really went down, jaws will drop and then you will learn that if you want to get hitched, make sure it's your soul mate please. I was trying to give it a last-ditch effort by recapping good times but to no avail….No more ball-and-chain for me. I've had it. I'm out.”
