Who is Alesha Dixon’s husband Azuka Ononye - Inside their beautiful romance


Alesha Dixon has been married to Azuka Ononye since 2017, more than ten years after they first met during a tour in 2006.

In a special moment for the pair, Azuka, who describes himself as a Independent Performing Arts Professional, joined Alesha, 45, onstage on Britain's Got Talent on Friday, 31 May, as she performed a medley of her biggest hits.

Eighteen years ago, Alesha’s team hired Azuka as a dancer for her tour and the two became friends straight away.

In a previous interview, Alesha confessed that she was “playing hard to get for about a year” but shared that they eventually bonded over, of all things, her broken foot.

“I couldn’t walk,” she said, “and he was literally sleeping on the floor looking after me every day.”

The singer joked that it was only then that she realised he was “a keeper.”

The pair’s relationship moved quickly and, just a year after they first met, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Azura.

Alesha shared the happy news on her 35th birthday, writing: “Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages! I’ve had the best present in the world… my baby girl Azura Sienna was born last week!!!”

Seven years later, in 2019, the couple welcomed their second child, a daughter named Anaya.

The pair announced the happy news once again on Alesha Dixon’s birthday - this time her 41st.

Alesha shared that she felt like the “luckiest girl in the world as I celebrate my birthday today”, and confirmed that she had welcomed baby Anaya seven weeks previous.

Speaking on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast back in 2017, Alesha shared that Azuka is the only man that she could imagine having children with.

“I knew we could have children together because of our values, our morals, our thinking aligned,” the singer said, before explaining that she was “frightened” to raise children in a toxic environment.

That same year, Alesha and Azuka got married behind closed doors in a small and intimate ceremony.

Alesha, who recently reminisced about her Mis-Teeq days on BGT, had previously been married to brit rapper MC Harvey from So Solid Crew, who she tied the knot with back in 2005.

However, the romance was doomed and it was reported that he was unfaithful to her with fellow popstar and his then co-star on the West End Javine Hylton.
