Abolore Akande, Nigerian singer and instrumentalist better known as 9ice, has called on Nigerians to help beg Olasunkami, his wife, amid report of another cheating scandal.
A viral video of the singer caressing another woman had earlier surfaced online generating heated controversy.
On Saturday, 9ice, in an Instagram post titled ‘save a sinking vessel’, admitted he had done “something shameful and terrible.”
The ‘Gongo Aso’ crooner also pleaded with the public to help beg his wife to forgive him.
The 40-year-old singer said he had experienced several marital failures in the past, noting that he cannot afford seeing his current marriage hit the rock again.
“I have done something so shameful, something terrible and it’s costing me my family. And the most important thing to me right now is my family. That 9ice that you’ll always see and appreciate is because l have a backbone, my wife, Olasunkami Akande,” he said in the now-viral video.
“And because of this terrible thing that l have done, it’s costing me a whole lot. I apologise for what l have done and l need you guys to help me beg my wife. She is my backbone.
“That 9ice that you always see, that strives, that brings out the best in our culture and tradition is because I have a backbone
“I have excelled in so many other things and what thing that l have been failing is my marriage. But l want this marriage to work. Please and please, help me beg my wife. Save this marriage for me. God bless you.”
The development is coming a few weeks to the first wedding anniversary of the lovebirds who tied the knot in December 2019.
They had welcomed Michelle Abolanle Akande, their first daughter, about five years before their marriage.
The singer has had a tumultuous marital ride since he broke up with Toni Payne, his former wife, in 2011 after having a child.
He also got into a relationship with Vickie Godis who gave him a set of twins.
