Some years ago, Lanre Teriba aka Atorise, impregnated a woman outside his marriage, but in a recent interview with Sunonline, when asked about an event that made him cry, he said: “I cried when I lost my mum. Another event was when I had a child out of wedlock.
The reason why I felt bad about it was that some people were using it against me. I regret it as well. Certain things happen in your life that are beyond you. I am human. But I don’t know why some people think I should kill myself because of that singular mistake.
Some Nigerians will see one mistake and magnify it. When I read stuffs about me on the Internet, I feel so bad and I wonder why people are doing that to me. But I have some wonderful fans that encourage me. And I thank God for my wife for being a great encouragement.
My wife knew about it, she really appreciated God that the marriage did not break. Today, the two of us are husband and wife. I have prayed to God for forgiveness. My wife has also forgiven me. So, those who still use it against me are haters.”
