Nigerian Afro-beat singer, Daniel Anidugbe (popularly known as Kizz Daniel)says he didn’t engage in sexual activity till he attained the age of 21.
The 27-year-old songwriter brought this revelation to light in a recent interview with TheWill Downtown magazine.
The ‘Barnabas’ crooner also talked about his relationship with Kola Anidugbe, his late father, who died in 2015.
Kizz Daniel described Kola as “my best friend.” He added that his late dad was the first person he told when he lost his virginity years ago.
“My dad is my best friend. I used the word ‘is’ because he’s still in my heart (he turns around and apologises to his brother wearing a smile) after him, then my brother. So I was really close to my dad but not so much with my mum,” he said.
“As a normal dude, the day I lost my virginity, I should have called my friends, but it was my dad. I lost my virginity at the age of 21 —as a kid, I was a bookworm and a huge nerd. I studied Water Engineering and graduated with a 4.32 GPA — so I’m narrating everything to him; from the beginning all the way to the end, and he laughed from start to finish.
“It was a very weird conversation, but that just goes to show how deep the bond went. ‘Oh, I love you so much, Baba 70’. The guy doesn’t overthink things at all. He talked me through everything after I told the story. He then said, ‘this is how you behave now and respect that woman’.
“He is never that guy to tell you not to. He is always all about respecting women. He married my mum, stepmom and was about to marry a third before he passed away. He loves women.”
Kizz Daniel broke into the limelight in 2014 after his smashing hit ‘Woju’ rented airwaves across the country.
I've been a freelance web developer and blogger for a while now and have a passion for both. Like most men, I'm a football lover; I prefer playing to watching matches.Personally, I believe with dedication there's no limit to what we can achieve. Yes, we all have the power and ability to do that.
Brother of a famous Nollywood actor, Uche Edochie, weighs in on the unending backlashes trailing Yul Edochie after taking a second wife.
It would be recalled that the marriage of Yul Edochie with the first wife had been through staggering points following the announcement of the second wife.
In a lengthy post via Instagram, Uche slammed society for worshipping lies than facing the truth.
He questioned which is better between a man marrying more than one wife legally or a man secretly cheating on his only wife.
“What is more admirable between honesty and deception? Most people will tell you that it is honesty and even proceed to quote a part of scripture that says, ‘The truth shall set you free’.
But none of this is true though. Society does not value honesty and the truth will only make you enemies. It doesn’t set you free. Not on this planet. If we all went around speaking our minds, we will either end up dead or in jail. We are encouraged to tell the truth but vilified when we do. Isn’t that something?
So we lie to our wives, husbands, parents, children and all of society. We lie to protect them because we know that they cannot handle the truth. That is why we lie.
The most controversial thing you can do today is not killing, cheating or stealing. Society does this everyday enmass. The most controversial thing you can do is to tell the truth. A lie is like a bottle of soda. It tastes good but it isn’t good for us.
Truth on the other hand is like quinine. The taste is horrible but healthy and curative. That is why we have adverts of your coca colas and pepsis plastered all over the world but not quinine. A lie simply tastes better.
And this my friends is why we celebrate cheaters and attack truth tellers. We consider it more respectable for a man to marry one wife and quietly cheat on her with multiple women than for him to marry two or more of these women, making his feelings for them official and respectable.
It seems to me that the issues we face in life are not because we are imperfect humans. We struggle as a society simply because we cannot handle the truth.”
In a follow-up video, Uche Edochie quizzed his fans on whether or not society should condemn a mistake or should the mistake be worked on.
