Rumour was rife on social media that popular singer, 9ice, was expecting his fifth child from another baby mama with online commentators calling 9ice ‘Father Abraham’, which simply connotes a man with many children.
In a WhatsApp chat with the singer, he denied the report but told Saturday Beats that there was no crime in having more children.
9ice said, “The reports are not true that I am expecting my fifth child from another woman. I have no idea where the report came from, but the truth is that in Nigeria, especially in Yorubaland, there is an adage that says that you don’t count a man’s children for him.
“To have more children is not a crime, but the sad thing is that people would believe what they want to believe. I am currently in the studio working on new songs and I am also promoting my new song, ‘Ebami’, but no one would write about that. All they know is to peddle false news about me.”
