Following the news of BB Naija 2017 housemate, TBoss’ father getting married going viral, the man in question has come out to defend himself and his decision to get married.
He explained why he got married and even placed curses on his children because they haven’t been in contact fora while.
Vincent Idowu commented on a news post about him on Instablog saying,
“When destiny smiles on someone, he forgets that there is life elsewhere. If I look like a roasted goat on my wedding day, that’s cool but that writer wiĺl soon become a resident of a Subcity where people with severed limbs, broken bones, amputations, stinking, blind, and lame reside. THIS IS A PROMISE. I live a humble, private life and did not intimate TBoss or any of her siblings of my plan to remarry in accordance with my tradition/ custom. Furthermore, I did not make public or post anything about my marriage. I am starting a new beginning and clearing the slate of all the wrong decisions I made in my life. I just want to forget Tokunbor (TBoss) and her siblings and start life afresh for all its worth. If and wherever Tboss and any of her siblings gets married, it shall be without my blessings and woe unto the man or the woman who marries any of them. So shall it be by the power vested on me by God Almighty.”
Apart from making it known that he did not receive a penny from his children, he also made it known that they are still estranged and haven’t spoken for two years and his ex-wife for more than ten years.
“Ordinarily, I really wouldn’t like to make any comment here knowing how petty and unreasonable most Nigerians are. I am neither a politician, a business mogul nor money ritualist. I am just a humble, comfortable old man. There was never a time I bragged of my wealth. And I have been a devoted and honest civil servant all my life. So, are Nigerians celebrating wealth or honesty? I am proud that I served my country faithfully and with integrity. I never took one kobo bribe as a Civil Servant and as a lecturer I never took one Kobo for blocking. Those Nigerians jeering at my simplicity should cover their heads with shame. TBoss and her siblings have their lives and certainly without me. I never asked TBoss for one Kobo and I have never seen Wendy for over 13years though she visits Nigeria regularly in the past 10yrs from Romania. The last time I saw Tokunbor(TBoss) was in August 2016. Their mother left me on good grounds in 2006. Even God found out that it was not proper for man (Adam) to live alone so He created Eve to be Adam’s companion. So, what’s wrong in having a devoted and understanding companion as wife even at my old age?”
But Vincent Idowu isn’t ashamed of anything and why should his family be ashamed of him.
” If you don’t have facts, pls learn to keep silent. Would you abandon your parents at their old age? How have I embarrassed my children? By getting married to someone who loves and cares for me? People around me who appreciated my situation felicitated with me so also are over 600 of my students. I thank God for making my wedding celebration a successful one. TBoss and her siblings read of my wedding on the internet because they were never informed. I am doing what any reasonable man should do; my only regret is that I should have done so many, many years before now.”
