Celebrity couple, Choirmaster and actress, Beverly Afaglo, seem to have a tussle on when to have a second child after the first daughter, Violin, born two years ago.
The Ghana’s Most Beautiful singer who has been married since April 2012 said he is ready for a new baby but his wife thinks it’s too early for another because she wants to get her shapely figure back.
“Our people say that, a slap that is yours is better received early. Why the delay when we will definitely need more babies in our home?” Choirmaster said in an interview with Showbiz last Monday.
According to him, even though having another baby is his wish, he has no choice but to convince his wife to grant him the “request”.
“Her job as an actress requires that she must have the right timing before giving birth so I perfectly understand her stance and what it entails to be an actress. So this is not a command but a passionate appeal,” he said giggling.
He continued, “I wanted us to have another baby when Violin turned one but I thought that will be selfish on my part if I didn’t seek her consent. But, what is the point in waiting? I think the earlier the better so that she can have all the time after child bearing to enjoy life to her satisfaction. I don’t think it is a bad idea at all,” he said.
Even though Choirmaster couldn’t give the number of children he would want to have when the question was put to him, he was quick to remark, “I don’t mind two or three. I love kids too and would love to have more but that will be to the agreement of my wife. We are not God, anything can happen but I can’t look into the future,” he said.
Many celebrity marriages have hit the rocks, an issue that have generated doubts among the public about the survival of such marriages but Choirmaster believes every marriage, irrespective of those involved can suffer the same fate.
He, however, admitted that being a celebrity denies you of a private life and always have your family issues in the public so even when there is a little problem; it is blown out of proportion.
“I admit that marriage can be challenging. It’s about two people from different backgrounds coming together to live under one roof for the rest of their lives.
“I have always thanked God for the kind of woman I have as a wife. She is quite mature and knows how to handle her home as a wife. Sincerely, I’ve always admired her contribution to issues and interest in my career. I pray it continues this way till the end,” he stated.
Away from family issues, Choirmaster also touched on how he is building his career as a solo artiste after the demise of the Praye group last year. His song, Ghana’s Most Beautiful, earned him a nomination at last year’s 4Syte Music Video Awards.
Since then, he has worked his way to remain relevant on the music scene and told Showbiz that, he is gradually finding his stand as a solo artiste.
