I was in low spirit during eight years of childlessness – Illbliss

Rapper and actor, Tobechukwu Ejiofor, better known as Illbliss has said that though he and his wife had to wait for eight years after their marriage to have a child, they never lost hope but there were times when he was in low spirits.

The King of Boys star said this during an interview with Punch published on Sunday.

He said: “It was just God’s grace. We never panicked. There were times when we were low in spirit for not having kids but we always knew that they would come. The level of faith my wife and I had was divine.

“We also made sure that we embraced all the children around us— the ones in our family and those of our friends. We celebrated other kids and worked for God in the ways that we could. For now, we have two daughters. The first is five years old while the second is two years old.”

The rapper also noted that his days working as a janitor in a centre for children with special needs in the United Kingdom taught him to appreciate children more.

He said, “I always go back there when I am in the UK because it makes me remember those kids.

“Being in their midst made me thankful to God for having children that don’t have psychological, physical or social issues. It taught me to be patient with children and show them love, no matter their challenges.”

Aside from music, Illbliss is a businessman, he owns the talent managing outfit known as The Goretti Company.

He made is acting debut as Odogwu in Kemi Adetiba’s King of Boys which also starred Sola Sobowale, Toni Tones, Titi Kuti, Adesua Etomi and Real Warri Pikin.
