Just like that. I’m now a proud father to a teenager and a lovely and talented one at that. This is beautiful.
As I was working in God’s vineyard, he was working in mine too. Few days ago, I had to take her to my family house in Benin for her naming ceremony.”
The Gospel Comedian’s marriage crashed amidst allegations and counter allegations emanating from both camps. While the lady accused the man of neglect and also not supporting her music career, the man claimed that she is an adulterer.
