Nigerian gospel music minister Mike Abdul who is known for his groovy music has cleared the rumor that he has been divorced of his estranged wife after a rumor broke out three years ago that his marriage had gone sour,the music artiste had resisted talking about his status based on his marriage for the period of three years which many took for truth.
In a telephone conversation with Saturday Beats, the singer clearly stated that he was not divorced. He also states that people misconcepted his silence for truth thinking that he is legally free from his marriage.
“In the conversation, Mike Abdul further said “I have learnt not to comment on issues that border on my marriage. Initially when I started having bad press, I was not happy. I discovered that I was making those who wanted to make me sad, happy. It doesn’t make sense to give happiness, gladness and fulfillment to my enemies. I would like to correct a general notion; I am not divorced in anyway. I think it is people’s misconception; let us just leave it at that. People have their issues and it takes time to sort things out.” says Mike Abdul
When asked if there will be reconciliation with his estranged wife, the singer politely declined commenting on the matter anymore and was ready to talk more on his new album “Korede” which is raving in the market now.
Mike abdul also talked about what inspired him to title his new album ‘Korede’, he shares that the song was influenced by Korede Bello song “Godwin”. He furthers shares how he came about the title for the song.
” I was at an event last year with the Midnight Crew where we performed at someone’s birthday. After our performance, Korede Bello was next. I have always liked the song ‘Godwin’ because I feel that whatever you do in life, it is God that wins. When I saw him, somehow that name “Korede” got stuck in my head. The next day when I was saying my prayers, no song could come to my mind, but the name Korede kept ringing in my head. The name means ‘To bring blessing’, and it is only God that brings blessing to someone’s life.”
“I connected to his name knowing full well that God will bring my blessing especially with this album. The funny thing is that I did not feature Korede Bello in the album but the only thing I did was to inform him that I was naming my album after him and he told me that it was very cool,” he said.
