9ice has opened up on the fears he nursed when he was to have his first child, Zion, with his now estranged wife, Toni Payne.
He said he was very scared because he believed he was too young to father a child and he wasn’t ready emotionally and otherwise.
Speaking to Showtime, the singer said:
“When news of my first child’s pregnancy got to me, I was gripped with fear because I thought I was too young to father a child. I was just 28-years old at that time so I wasn’t really prepared emotionally or otherwise, I felt I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment”, he revealed.
“When my son was finally born, it became clear to me that his birth was not a mistake; this was what actually inspired me to write and sing the song No be mistake”, he further said.
