Gospel singer, Atorise’s claim that he did not have a child out of wedlock is a lie. Two weeks ago, E24-7 reported that the gospel singer put a young lady, Bola Ogunleye, a National Diploma student of Lagos Polytechnic in a family way and delivered of a baby girl about two months ago. The baby christened, Jomiloju at Bola’s parents’ home in Ikotun, Lagos and attended by the gospel singer has been moved by her mum to a big sister’s residence in Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos.
Since the news broke in the media, Atorise has been hopping from one media house to another to deny the story and the existence of a new baby in his life claiming he was only married to his wife, Kudi.
His denials in the interview have upset the mother of the love child, who called him and asked why he made such false claims. She said he denied granting any journalist an interview. “I asked him and he swore to me that he didn’t grant any interview to journalist or magazine and nobody call him for any kind of interview, he also added that it was part of the scandals the press usually put him in. I then asked him if he could sue the medium involved and he said how many of them he would sue.”
The flustered lady later with E24-7 Magazine’s editor: “I trust your magazine, so I want you to interview him and ask maybe it’s true that he denied the baby.”
Asked what could make him to deny the baby’s paternity, Bola, said: “Maybe he’s afraid of his wife but what about me? I don’t even know what to do. He hasn’t gotten me a good accommodation since the baby came, I always squat with people, anytime I ask him for support he’ll tell me he doesn’t have money that he has a lot of things that has tied his money down. That is why I believe the N100 million house he said he’s building.
