Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa, Nigerian singer better known as Joeboy, says he is single but has a “sugar mum”.


He spoke about his relationship status during a recent interview with Beat 99 FM — following the release of his debut studio album titled ‘SBBM‘.

A sugar mummy refers to a wealthy woman who spends freely on a younger person (male) in return for sexual intimacy.

Speaking of his album, Joeboy made reference to the track ‘Sugar Mama’, where he had mentioned his older lover.


“Right now, I’m single. I’m not searching. I have a lot of female friends. There’s one particular person that only calls me when… There’s a line in the second verse, like the first line in the second verse. I mean it,” the 23-year-old said.

“I’m not complaining. I like it. A song like Sugar Mama is actually like a true-life story. Everything I said on that song, I’m still a sugar baby. I cannot tell you her name but, I promise you I’m. I have a sugar mummy.

“She met me. It’s really dope. I feel super free. She feels free too. And it’s fun.”


In the song, Joeboy had explained that his older lover often vows that she would take care of his material needs.
