I Didn’t Plan To Have Baby Mama – Taye Currency

Many were shocked when musician, Taye Currency’s 25-year-old son, Yusuf, was elected into the Oyo State House of Assembly during the recently concluded polls. Firstly, it was heartwarming that someone that young could win such an election, and people were also surprised that Taye Currency, who is a little over 40, could have such an elderly son.

Fuji artistes are no strangers to having children out of wedlock. Long before the ‘trend’ caught on with pop musicians, Fuji singers had been having baby mothers.

However, Currency said he never planned to have a baby mother. Describing his experience raising a child at such a young age, Taye said, “I and his mother were very young and inexperienced. However, my mother loves children and she was the one that took care of him.


It was also around that time that I started fuji music; so, I was also able to take care of him as a father. As of then, I didn’t know anything about having a baby mother and it is not something I advocate. I don’t think it is a good thing. However, it so happened that way and I don’t regret it.”

The fuji artiste also maintained that right from when his son made his intention to go into politics known, he knew he would emerge victorious. He said, “I have always supported whatever he wants to do. I tried my best to give him good education and I always made him understand that there is no limit to what he could achieve. I believe that age is nothing but a number, and I also started my career and began making money at a young age. When it comes to politics, power is in the hands of the people, and if they see that you mean well for them, they would support you.

 “I encouraged my son to move closer to the grass roots and that was what helped him. He may be young but I believe so much in him and I am sure he would not let the people down. With the right guidance, he will surely make memorable impact. I also thank the people of Ibadan South-West constituency for throwing their weight behind him.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
