The “Double Whale” hitmaker, Oritse Femi who was involved in an accident yesterday when trying to evade armed robbers got his new Range Rover crashed talked about his career and his late father reaction to his interest in music before he died in February.
Oritse revealed to Punch in an interview on December 6, 2014 that his late dad didn’t like the kind of music he’s doing and he usually call the police to arrest him.
In his words;
“My father wanted me to become an engineer like him, so he did not support my music career. He knew I am talented but when I started music, people who got involved were seen as miscreants. Although I am from a polygamous family, I was one of my father’s favourites. He did so many things to dissuade me from pursuing my career. Back then whenever I got back home from a show, it was certain that he would ask policemen to arrest me. Everybody in Ajegunle knew that my father often asked policemen to arrest me. It got to a point when the policemen in the area were tired of arresting me. So, whenever they were asked to pick me up, they would release me the following morning. When my father realised that the police were not helpful, he built a guard room in our compound because of me. I thank God that at the end of the day, I was able to convince him. I am really pained because now that I have made it big in the industry, he is dead. I wish he were alive to witness this but I cannot blame God”
