Joeboy opens up about the challenge of forgiving people who have hurt him



Nigerian Afrobeats and R&B artiste, Joeseph Akinwale, known professionally as Joeboy, has recently opened up about how he struggles with forgiving people who offend him in diverse ways.

According to the ‘Body& Soul’ hitmaker, he tries his best to do the right when it comes to relationships with people and so therefore takes it personally when people hurt him in ways he would not do to them.

Joeboy made this known when he appeared as a guest on the Zero Conditions Podcast, where he spoke on his come-up and his musical opinions.


He explained that by saying that, “It’s hard for me to forgive and forget, I can’t lie. I’m sorry but I’m trying though. I can hold a grudge because one thing I like to do when it comes to relationships with people is to make sure I do everything right. So when someone acts funny with me I take it personally because I’d never do that to you, why are you doing that to me? That’s why I take it personally.”

The multiple award-winning crooner further revealed that when he is able to forgive someone, he would rather not have the offender in his space. His reason for this is linked to the fact he does not cut people off quickly, so if they manage to blow through their numerous chances he cuts them off. Joeboy cited his biggest takeaway on the topic of forgiveness by recalling a piece of advice a friend gave him. He has learned that reducing one’s expectations of other people helps a lot.
“I might even forgive but it would take a while though, but I’d forgive, It’d be very difficult to give the person access again,” he stressed.
