Skales confesses: Don’t know where my father is or how he looks like”

Rising artiste, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng aka Skales has revealed that he does not know where his father is and he does not really care.

According to the artiste in an interview with New Telegraph, his father left him and his mother when he was six years old.

According to him:

“I do not know really. My father left us when I was six, so it was basically my mother and I. I actually do not care if he reaches me or not because I am used to my mother playing his role.

If he even comes now, it would be a weird situation for me and I do not want that. I do not have anything against him. I have forgiven him; he only has to settle with my mother. I am a grown man now, and hopefully in the next 10 years, I would start my family too.”

“There was a time I used to envy my friends who had great and supportive fathers. I have cried many times. But my mother did a great job in ensuring that I had everything I needed. Even when people try to play fatherly figure in my life, it looks strange to me because I do not know how it feels like.

Definitely, my mother is one of my biggest inspirations in life. She taught me that I should always provide for and be there for my family when I grow up.

Like I said, my father left us when I was really young; I do not even know what he looks like. My mother and I were sleeping in a shopping complex at a time. I am talking about primary and secondary school days in Kaduna.

Then, the only hope for me was music. At some point, I told my mother I wanted to work and support her. I was chased out of school because I did not pay school fees. I had to steal uniforms because mine was bad, and I would tell my mother I saved money for it.

Also, my mother would go to my friends’ houses to do their laundry, which was embarrassing to me. I had to deny my mother. I also did not let my friends know where I lived because most were children of politicians.

When I told my mother I was moving to Lagos, she asked me to finish my university education in Kaduna. But I convinced her I could cope. From Kaduna to Lagos, I got a free ride and the first place I stayed was Orile”.
