Music star, Adekunle Gold who used to be a Muslim has revealed how he converted to a Christian and how his dad reacted after his conversion.
He also talked about his kind of Woman and why he is never going to have a babymama.
See excerpts from his interview with Kemi’s Love Haven Blog.
His kind of woman:
“I love and want a woman who is hardworking, because I cannot stand laziness in women. She must be smart, pretty, and just be an Orente.”
His amusing conversion story:
“I followed a girl to church and found that I became a Christian instead. That was in 2004 and I have remained a Christian ever since.”
His parents’ reaction?
“My father didn’t like the idea initially but later everyone accepted me for who I am. I am cool being a Christian,” he said.
Delving into music was not pleasant either for his parents.
“My mum was always asking me why I would always use the money that I should utilise on myself on recording songs. I was a lover of music and I grew up listening to a lot of sounds. While at the Lagos Polytechnic, I would always run to record songs even when I started working, I was like that too and my parents didn’t understand what I was doing. I continued this until I dropped ‘Shade’ which became a big break. They support my vocation and are my number one fans,” Adekunle said.
Baby Mama Trend
“I don’t want it and I don’t like the idea,” he said.
He agreed that though not everyone loves marriage, everyone wants a peaceful home.
“The idea of Baby Mama depends on who are involved. I’m sure that those involved now were not disposed to the idea at some point. I don’t like it and I speak for myself only. Yes, not everyone wants to get married. Sometimes you think about marriage and what have been happening around couples and you get scared. I am like, ‘no, I don’t want this’ but I know I want marriage and want to be happy in it. My woman has to be an Orente, that is, a good woman. I want marriage but not a baby Mama.”
