“I Guard My Private Affairs With My Life” – Mode 9 On Why He’s Super Secretive
Have you ever wondered why the public knows next to NOTHING about the private life of aWhahd winning Nigerian rapper, Mode 9?
The 41 year old veteran rapper has given reasons why his life is kept away from the social media and ‘prying’ public, adding that he guards his private affairs with his life.
Speaking with the Punch, the Hip hop star said,
“I am not going to answer personal questions and if you notice my modus operandi, I guard my personal life with my life. I tell my family members to shy away from the press.
“My interviews are about my works; I drop an alb…m and I want you to buy it. I don’t want people to know about my personal life, because I am an artiste and not a celebrity. I don’t do music to be famous. Everybody has a reason behind their action and I do music because I am good at it.
“Why do I need to be famous? It is a lie that the person in my life may feel bad that I don’t talk about her during interviews. If your wife works in a bank and you are an artiste, you don’t go to her bank and sit down.
“Likewise an entertainer, your spouse may come for a few shows but not every one of them because she knows you would not give her all your attention. Some people like to put their family in the limelight like the K@rd@$h|ans but others don’t because they are private people and the fans need to respect that fact.
“I follow rappers like KRS One in America and I have never woken up one day to find out who his wife is. I don’t care about any other thing but his music because I am a fan of his music.
“There are some people that are just too nosy and want to know everything about a person. You cannot know everything about me. I am from a different era, and in my era, we only follow the music and ignore every other thing,” the aWhahd winning rapper added.
