“My Wife is working. She is actually on set right now” – Ubi Franklin
Tells LIB when asked about the rumoured split with his wife.
Excerpts of interview:
Q: For a while, your private life has been on the news, your wife, son and marriage, what is the truth?
A: It is my private life, so I want it to remain private.
Q: How do you feel about people having an opinion about your life, interpreting every single move you make?
A: It is the life I chose. You see, a lot things happen in lives of people, but you don’t know about it. A lot of things happen in the music industry that people don’t know about. The stories are making me more popular and I am monetizing it. Opinions are welcome but it doesn’t define a person.
Q: Would you advise a celebrity to get married to a fellow celebrity just like you did?
A: Yeah. You see marriage is, if you are ready, you have to face the consequences for it. Getting married is one of the greatest things that happened to me and the greatest thing that happened to me after marriage is childbirth. My son is the greatest gift I have ever received in my life. If you must get married, make sure you focus on your home, and take care of your kids. Once you have children, it changes everything.
Q: There were rumours that you and your wife separated and living in different houses. How true is it?
A: That is my private life.
Q: Did you open your new restaurant for your wife?
A: It is our family business, it is ours
Q: How many children does your wife want?
A: I wanted four, but she wants two and they are the ones that carry the child so you have to respect that. You know she has a job she’s doing. By the time you try to cut short her passion, it’s going to be very difficult for her, so you have to respect what she wants. That is another thing I want to advise men, It is no longer about what you want all the time. There are now two people that have become one, so you need to be in oneness in terms of decision making.
