Alibaba’s daughter, Akpevwoghene has really made her dad who turned up for her school’s graduation event proud, as he couldn’t help but share a video of the award she got.
My girl Akpevwoghene… overall best student, and she beat all Igbo children to win best Igbo student. We don’t play
Alibaba’s older daughter, Xsara, had before now spoken about her warm relationship with her dad. On how her dad influenced the course she is studying;
Seeing as I grew up around entertainers and the media, I sort of gravitated towards it. I’ve never seen myself doing anything else. As a child, I actually wanted to become a musician. Anytime artistes came to our house, we would dance to their songs and we were very fond of that. I never thought of being a comedian or an actress because I used to have stage fright.
On how often does he spend time with his children, he said;
We see him quite often. No matter how busy his schedule gets, he tries to create as much time as possible for us. If he knows that he would be very busy and we don’t have to go to school, he would take us along with him to events and rehearsals. And when he needs to go on stage, he would assign someone to watch over us. Sometimes, we spend the whole day with him at the office, or we could just drive around Lagos with him. Even when we’re in school, he comes to see us as much as he can.
On the worst thing she has read about him, she said;
I once read online that my mum is the breadwinner of the family. I just laughed because people just look for things to say, whether it’s true or not. If someone charges nothing less than N3m for a show, you can imagine how much he would make per month if he attends about five shows per week. Sometimes, he could even charge up to N10m. It doesn’t even matter who makes more in a marriage because it is a union and two have become one.
