came about having two lovely boys for the ‘African Queen’ singer.
Read excerpts of her interview:
met Tuface when I was a student of Yaba College of Technology. I had
just lost my dad and my mum was living in America. For someone who
was a daddy’s girl, I needed love. This was the only person that was
showing me love at that time. I feel I had that experience so that other
young girls would not make the same mistake. I was 24 when I fell
pregnant the first time.
“When I got pregnant the first time, I approached the pastor of the
church I was attending then and he brought me out before the church and
judged me. I was asked to go and bring the father of my unborn child so
we could be joined together. I brought a different person and we got
married at the registry. Everything fell apart when I had a child who
looked nothing like him and my mum came back from America to ask who
gave my hand out in marriage because she was not a part of it. I had to
walk out of the marriage which I arranged by myself. I moved back home
and by age 25 I was already a single mum and a divorcee. There was so
much shame and reproach.
“It got to a point in my life that I felt that the Devil you know is
better than the angel you don’t know, so I went back to my baby daddy
and his mum talked me into living with him so he won’t have more women
and babies. We lived together for three years and that was how the
second pregnancy happened.
was not a bed of roses while I was there because I was trying to put
together what was not supposed to be. I think we broke up in 2009 after I
had the second baby. There were other women who were also going to have
babies for him around that time. I came to my senses like the prodigal
son and I was so broken. I think my baby daddy was out of the country
that fateful day when I returned from work and I packed all my things
plus that of my children, and I went back to my parents’ home.”
