He said “When the news of my first child’s pregnancy got to me, I was gripped with fear because I thought I was too young to father a child. I was just 28-years old at that time so I wasn’t really prepared emotionally or otherwise, I felt I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment”,
9ice revealed that , he went ahead to keep the pregnancy unlike some men who will proceed to abort it out of fear of becoming a father at young age.
When his son, Zion, was finally born, it then dawned on him that he would have made the greatest mistake of his life if he had terminated the pregnancy.
He further said the birth of his first child, Zion, inspired his hit song titled No be mistake.
He confessed “When my son was finally born, it became clear to me that his birth was not a mistake, this was what actually inspired me to write and sing the song No be mistake”
