Singer, Ay.com has cleared the air on lingering rumours that he could not withstand the stiff competition in the Nigerian music industry which is why he failed out of favour. The rumour also has it that aside the competition, the rift between him and his friend, Terry G, were also part of what affected his musical career.
The singer in a recent interview with the dailies, stated that he had to put his music on hold to get closer to his family which are the most important thing to him.
Though now blessed with two kids, the singer says he needed to take time off to enable him understand his wife better and train his children to know what is right and wrong.
The singer said, “I am a family man and marriage is totally different from courtship. It is a lifetime union. I was away from music so that I could get to know my wife better. Marriage was one of the reasons I was away from the limelight. Raising a family requires a lot of attention and that is what I am giving my family. I have two children now. I had to train them to a level for them to know their wrong from right. I had to make sure my home was stable before I went back into music. I had to give my home the attention it deserves because my family is very important to me. If my home is not settled, there is no way the music would be settled. I give God the glory that my family is settled.”
AY.com explained that he can never have a failed career as a musician because he controls music adding that he just released a song with Terry G titled, ‘No Mind Them,’ so as to show people that they are good together.
He explained though, he had a rift with the singer but had learnt his lessons from it noting that he regretted some aspects but has since been able to stand alone as a man.
“Before the misunderstanding, we used to be very close friends but we are not as close as we used to be. We are not so close as before because we are both family men now. I don’t know if things can be the way they used to be between us because there are women and children in our lives now. I wish and pray that things would be better than they used to be between us because he is a very good friend of mine,” he said.
