He stated that he has lots of matured grandchildren which on sighting many will think he has a new wife which is the reason why he does not like stepping out with them to events.
In his words with Sun newspaper on plans of having a new wife, “A new wife? Are you praying for me or cursing me? If you see some of my grandchildren, you’d marvel and that’s the reason I sometimes forbid them from going out with me. A lot of times people had said, “good afternoon madam, how are you madam?” to some of them and I would interject, “she’s not madam o, she’s my grandchild. And they’d argue it cannot be true. I believe I clocked 70 on September one because if I die today, they’d say he dies at 70. But the media guys would say ‘he dies a few days before his 70th birthday.”
