I do not have a kid and I do not intend to have one real soon” – EMS (Full story here)

I do not have a kid and I do not intend to have one real soon” – EMS (Full story here)

Few<span id=”more-7740″> days back rumors got wide on social media as ‘EMS’ one of Nigeria’s freshest Upcoming Artists was allegedly suspected of impregnating and having a baby from one of His Self Acclaimed  ‘Baby Mama’s’ (Name Reserved), it got every one thinking, some happy, some agreed and some couldn’t just comprehend how possible that could be.

Before EMS took to his Facebook timeline, a photo of a new baby(sex not specified) and captioned it “Welcome baby, Daddy loves you soo much” his self proclaimed Bae took to her timeline a photo of her holding a new born baby, also tagged the baby to be her’s, alot of people wanted to know the father of the baby which was not disclosed, she only said “na my baby fa”.

Few days later EMS came to post a picture of a new born baby captioned  “Welcome baby, Daddy loves you soo much” which he deleted before the press could get a record of it (Sharp man) this got everyone convinced this has to do with the baby the self proclaimed baby mama posted earlier because few people knew the both had something i common before EMS left for Lagos to push his music career.

it was shocking The Bae went as far as far as confirming the baby to be from EMS in one of her chat with a friend which went public.

DISCLAIMER

Good morning friends and enemies

Let’s address an issue real quick.
Children are a gift from God and should be celebrated and welcomed but the issue is,
I do not have a kid and I do not intend to have one real soon.

I am honored that some people do think that I am capable of having a kid and taking care of one at the moment.
But I am NOT a father now and i do not intend to have one soon.

I as an individual do not subscribe to the idea of children outside wedlock but I do not look down on those who have had.
(Different strokes for different folks.)

To all those who helped spread the false news in one way or the other, danced and drank beer, and the ones that turned my publicity managers overnight,
I still got love for each and every one of you.

To them that felt disappointed, Oya begin smile..na lie..
To all my crushes and gal friend that I deenoh no that were crying en, Oya wipe your tears..your boy no get pikin.

To them that wished me well and congratulated, I would save the wishes for when I finally have a child.

I finally know where I stand with some people tho.

For now I am focused on making good music for you all..the type you all would love to listen to

Kindly share and happily spread this news too like you did spread the rumor.
