Being sad is normal and everyone has their saddest moments, including the high and mighty.
“My saddest moment was when they were writing things about me some years ago while I was celebrating the kids coming,” he said. “Some people were using it against me, and saying some hurtful things to put me down. Another sad moment was when I lost my dad.
“All of a sudden I realised that this man who used to carry us on his shoulders and take us out for shopping and all that was going to die. Although, I tried all I could but I couldn’t help him, and he died. I cried like a baby.”
“There are so many first moments I could describe as my happiest. For me, it has been a string of firsts, and I am glad that I am a pioneer. Officially, I was the first artiste to be endorsed by a very big company and that was a very happy moment for me.
“I was the first to be declared by a big record label as the first artiste to sell above a million copies. I was the first to be on the popular Billboard charts. I was also the first Nigerian artiste to have his music played on MTV Base Africa. In fact, the list is endless; and my kids are huge sources of inspiration for me, even though, when they were coming and I was rejoicing that I was going to be a dad, some people were complaining; thanks to their mums and my wife.
“I am not somebody that likes to regret. I feel that whatever that happens has happened. The only thing I think of is how to blend and turn things positively. I don’t just sit down; fold my hands and start regretting. Instead, I re-adjust and move on.”
