The singer shared the details of his struggles at the time he lost his son plus the ecstatic news of the pending arrival of another child to him and his wife during his interview with OAP Shopsy of Beat FM London.

He thanked everyone that supported him throughout the trying time. Speaking on how he coped after losing his son Daniel Jr. in a sad domestic accident, he stated that he attended therapy once but decided against it after it evoked even more difficult emotions.

Here’s some of what he said:

“I believe it is God Almighty that granted myself and my wife the grace to be here today. It’s not something you wish on your worst enemy even if you have one.

To lose a child is not something you think about, and I had never thought about it. I could have been asked about other things and I’d say “I’m focused, this is how I plan to get it done.”

This one is one that broke me, one that just took the grace of God, a little bit of therapy that didn’t quite resonate with me as a black man.”

He went on to talk about how convenient it is telling his wife as often as possible that it will all be well again, but what is most important is restoration and at that point, he revealed he’d be a father again in a couple of months. He added he is expecting a boy.
