Nigerian rapper, Chinko Ekun, born Oladipo Emmanuel has disclosed that he doesn’t have plans to have a child for now so as to be able to achieve his goals on time.
Chinko Ekun in an interview with The Punch also spoke about his first-hand experience of police brutality, where he alleged that he was beaten mercilessly by the officers who arrested him
“I was once a victim of police brutality. They beat me mercilessly. The experience affected me physically and psychologically. I almost went crazy because it was three days to my show in Ife, Osun State.” he said
He also talked about why he was yet to father a child saying that:
“One of the reasons I have yet to be a baby daddy is because I have a lot of goals that I have yet to achieve. Although I am comfortable, there is a standard of living I want for my kids. I want to send my kids to the best schools and have a good life. Growing up, I didn’t suffer because my dad took good care of us. He gave us a standard but I need to raise that standard. Once I start to have children, my focus would shift, so psychologically, I am not ready. Whenever my woman gets pregnant, I would not want her to be stressed at all. I would have to be there for her and I don’t have that time now because of my ‘hustles’.”
Chinko Ekun is a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University.
