In a new interview with Delay, Funny Face got candid about all his ordeals for the first time.


When asked if was mentally prepared before starting a relationship with his current baby mama, Vanessa, he openly admitted to rushing into that relationship right after his divorce from his first wife.

He said: “When you go through divorce, you need to heal first before you go into the next relationship. Not just divorce, when you go through any broken relationship, you need to really heal.  This is because, if don’t heal before entering a new relationship, youll be sitting on a time bomb and it will eventually blow and that’s what happened to me”

He further admitted to being an ’emotionally broken man’ who expects too much from people and ends up being disappointed.
