Shortly after his marriage�to�ex-wife Toni Payne packed up in 2010, Gongo Aso crooner 9ice welcomed a set of twin daughters with�another lady Vicki Gordis.
When the news first became public, 9ice fiercely denied the story,�saying�the press had made it up.
Not until he proudly shared the pictures of his adorable twins on Instagram some weeks back.
And in this�new interview�with Punch,�9ice finally explains why he lied.
Why did you deny you had twins when they were born?
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.
But when they grow up, do you think they will forgive you when they read that you once 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.�
You are in showbiz, so you shouldn’t expect to have a private life…
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.
Do we see you getting married to their mother soon?
I will get married soon. It is very possible.
But is she the one you are with at the moment?
I am not saying anything on that. No comment.
Let’s go back to what you said earlier on about not knowing your parents until you were a young man, how did it happen?
It is going to be in my autobiography. I am going to make money out of the story. I am not divulging it. Nobody knows about it yet
