Popular indigenous singer 9ice is one of the more fatherly people in the music industry, having 4 children from different women.
His first child, Zion, came from then wife, Toni Payne. He then had a pair of twins — Maya and Miya — from an affair with Vicky Godis, and his last child, Michelle, was given to him by current partner, Olasunkanmi Ajala.
In a recent interview with Punch, 9ice revealed that he wasn’t happy his kids are split across many women, and that he’d be much happier if they all came from the same woman.
“I wish I had all my children from one woman because it is a good thing and it makes you connect easily with your children,” 9ice said in the interview. “For example, I have to go to Abuja, Lagos and America to visit my children. Imagine if all my children were from one woman.”
He however said he had no regrets for the situation of things, as all his actions were ordained by God.
“I have no regrets because it has been ordained, people are just complaining but God has already ordained that these things would happen,” he said.
His personal life has been trailed by a lot of controversies, one of the biggest being his split from wife Toni Payne and the ensuing beef with Ruggedman. He added though that he liked his life how it is, and that people should leave his life alone.
“I think people would never understand me because it is not their life but mine. Everybody has the way they want to live their life and we all have factors and elements that work for us. I know the factors that work for me, I am living my life and I am enjoying it. I think it is for people to enjoy my songs and like it. As for my love life, it is mine, if I live my love life the way people want me to, I would be suffering while they would be enjoying. They should leave my love life for me because I think I deserve some happiness and an enjoyable love life. I have some factors and tactics that work for me and it is not in my position to explain it to people. Without the negative criticisms I receive when it comes to my love life, I would not be doing music again because what would I sing about. What would I put in my music? I love all the controversies surrounding my love life.”
