The actor who recently disclosed in an interview that TB Joshua took advantage of him said he believes the hardest thing he has faced in life is being a father as well as making sure that he is always available for his son.

“Fatherhood is probably one of the toughest challenges in my life. Remember I don’t have a mother again.”

He further revealed that there was a particular day that his son cried throughout the night —”I started crying too. I couldn’t take the mental torture of seeing someone I love so much crying. I didn’t know what the problem was. He cried all through the night. When I called my doctor, he told me that it was normal for a baby to cry that way. According to the doctor, since they cannot talk to us about their distress, they cry.”

“I hired two nannies, but it didn’t work out well. The nanny didn’t last more than two weeks before I fired her. So, I made up my mind to sacrifice my time for my son.”

“I felt she was pushing away the actual experience I wanted for myself. My nanny was there to take care of things I wanted to experience like changing diapers, carrying my baby, feeding him and taking him for walks. I would also have time to go back to work, which I didn’t want to. I knew once I headed back to work, the process would continue,” he said during an interview on Goldmyne TV.
