Oreka Godis isn’t the biggest fan of 9ice right now.
On Saturday, Punch Newspaper released an interview with Nigerian artiste 9ice. In the interview he elaborated on why he denied the twin girls he had with the media personality’s sister Victoria Godis.
Read excerpts from the interview;
On why he denied his twins: “I did say I didn’t have twins then because I believe it was personal. If I have N1m, I think it is only my account’s officer that should know how much I have. In fact, he wouldn’t even have the right to check my account unless I ask him to do that. He couldn’t just cull up my account details and start checking how much I have. This is not a car we are talking about, these are human beings.”
On if they’ll forgive him in the future when they find out he denied them: “I will tell them the reason I did that. It was the same way my father gave me his own reasons. I didn’t know him until I was 22. I got to know my mother when I was 18. They gave me their reasons for doing what they did. I asked my father where he was all the time I was growing up and he told me where and how and when he was a part of my life. If my kids grow up to ask me why I did what I did, I would certainly explain to them. I didn’t say I didn’t have kids just because I wanted to lie, No. I had my reasons. I had my life to live.”
On privacy in the entertainment world: “But there are still some elements that are personal. I didn’t fight anybody when the stories came out. I just didn’t say anything because I wasn’t ready to talk about it. I wasn’t ready to share the story. When I got ready, I even shared the pictures of the twins. Who knows, I could have even used their pictures to make money and sell to a publication that wanted them. But I just released the pictures.”
On getting married: “I will get married soon. But it might not be tomorrow. It might not be as early as people expect. It might even be earlier than people expect.”
On if he will get married to Victoria Godis: “It is very possible.”
The Ebony Life TV presenter wasn’t a fan of the interview. She took to Twitter to share a bit of the story
