IK Ogbonna says he has stopped being close to female fans after he was almost raped by a woman who claimed to be a fan.
In a chat with Sun News, Ik revealed that he was almost raped by the said fan and she also went further to blackmail him.
“A female fan almost raped me. It was crazy but the good thing for me is that I was at a friend’s place when she started making the moves, and I was recording everything she was doing. So, by the time she got to the point where she said she was going to shout and turn the tables around, I played back what she was doing and she had to slow down,” he revealed.
He went on to explain that since the incident, he has stopped getting personal with his female fans.
“I think that was the craziest thing a female fan ever did to me.Since then, I stopped getting too personal with my fans. I won’t have them come visit me or see me at a friend’s place and all that kind of stuff. I created a barrier,” he said
See excerpt from his interview:
You are always posting romantic pictures of you and your wife on social media. What exactly does she mean to you?
She is my wife, my life. The Bible says ‘he who finds a wife has found a good thing and obtaineth favour’. So, I think I have found a good thing. If I were to come back again, I would choose her all over again.
You have been married for a while. Is the romance getting better?
Through the years, it has been exciting but the truth is, marriage is not an easy place to be, and anyone who says it is easy is a liar.
You mean you guys do have issues?
We have our quarrels and every married couple does. For my wife and I, we make our relationship more as friends first before husband and wife. I am talking about friends who want to see each other happy. So, we go all out and try to make each other happy. We don’t believe in quarrelling over night, but all those moments will come because we are different human beings. But whatever happens, we have respect for each other.
When you have your fallouts, who apologises first?
There is no pride in our relationship. Like my wife would always say, ‘there is no right or a wrong, it is just two people seeing the same thing from different perspectives’. So, if I think mine is right and she feels hers is right, that situation is not wrong. It is just right from her perspective and right from my perspective, so we just carry on. However, if I do something that is obviously wrong, I don’t hesitate to apologise and vice versa.
You’ve been married for a while now and you only have a son, and in Africa we believe in having big families. What is happening?
I have a daughter already and I have a son from my wife now. I am a very busy person. I don’t spend enough time with my family as it is, so as an actor and a businessman, I am always on the go; sometimes I feel guilty because I feel I don’t give them the time they deserve. I don’t want to bring another child into the world and all the stress will be on my wife. So, as much as possible, I try to balance myself so that when the right time comes, I will know what to do. Right now, she is not under any pressure and I am not under any pressure; we are just enjoying our relationship.
Is your wife not putting pressure on you for another kid?
(Laughter) She wants a girl and is always sending me pictures of half-caste kids on instagram, and they are so cute and sometimes I am tempted, but at the right time it will happen. Right now, we are just enjoying our marriage.
