Singer Erigga Reveals His Dad Feels Entitled To His Wealth Despite Not Being Present in His Life.

Nigerian Hip Hop artist Erigga, has lamented that despite absconding from home at eight and seeing himself through school, his dad feels entitled to his wealth..


He said; "When you see parents start feeling entitled, it doesn’t make sense because you had many years ahead of me, why didn’t make it before me? People don’t really address this entitlement mentality in Africa.

I was facing the street alone. I was involved in too many things that I can’t even say on camera. And I just keep wondering like what if I was shot or arrested? Because most of the people I was with then are either dead or in jail.

I had to start raising myself at the age of 8. I started living with my friends and learning bad habits. But then again, I fell in love with music at a very tender age so I knew where I wanted to be regardless of where I was. Then many years later, I now become Erigga then somebody comes and say, ‘Yo! You’re not taking care of me. You’re not doing this and that.’ And I’m like, ‘Bro, na relations we be because you no father the father wey you suppose father normally. I don father myself alone. And I can’t give you the credit.

All my stepbrothers started begging me to forgive our dad, saying he wasn’t also responsible to them. But at the end of the day, they are only having the conversation with me because I am who I am.”

    2. There is NO 'part' for him to do.
      The only reason the sperm donor and siblings are crowding around him is because he is making something of himself, if he was a bus conductor etc, I promise you the dad and siblings won't spare the 'h' in hello.
      Peoole need to decide fast whether they want to adopt the term 'father's 'mother' as ceremonial titles or as active roles and functions.
      Because this wretched deadbeatism is causing so much childhood trauma.
      Imagine someone raising himself at 8???
      Some of you the only thing you know how to do us actively use your genital organs.
      Nothing more.
      Completely empty heads filled with stagnant air.
      You should NEVER procreate.

  5. Only in Africa. My cousins also feels entitled to my money. I cut them off kia kia. African parents feel it’s the kids duty to be their retirement plan at old age. I’m not saying don’t take care of your parents but na the self entitled piss me off the most.

    1. If your parents took care of you, especially training you through school, it's only right to take care of them when they are retired. It's got nothing to do with entitlement

    2. Is not all African parents my dear @ 16:49; even them Jayz wey grow up for street for Brooklyn, as his mum's house is not far from my house then in NY; still dey care for their parents! They sold drugs; who God used to give you life on earth; should be respected! The fact that you know your parents and them nor deny say; you are my child is enough! Though my parents left us trust funds;as they understood training a child. If nor be yeye siblings wey nor get head! I can decide not to work again until I depart this world; that's why at almost 50, I am not married! I was spoiled rotten! I never see the kind partner wey we go spoil our children together. So take it easy on African parents! Is bad leadership that turned them to dependants !

    3. Parents who cared and provided cannot be rightly tagged as behaving as entitled.

      In some lands, the State provides for children from taxes and parents are free to max load their retirement accounts. There, children can call parents entitled for wanting more from their children.

  11. Any parent who sit and let their child be raised by the streets at such a young age don’t deserve a damn thing, not even acknowledgement. That was not poverty that was lowlife animalistic behaviour that sent an 8yr old to be raised in the wilds of the streets without protection, love, or care. If it was today traffickers would have taken him or he could have been sexually abused and you as a parent living your life in peace, not worried where your very young child is. The father should be ashamed of his damn self for expecting anything from this young man. Mtsscchhwww

  12. I love his stance..you can't just waltz back into someone's life and then start feeling entitled

  13. I hope you are making amends to those who bore the brunt of your actions that led your colleagues to the grave or prison.

    Ignore your Dad. When he is ready, he will go on social media to embarrass himself.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Then family members who try to gaslight or coerced you into embracing wrong people who manipulate their way into your life bringing chaos and negativity

    They are not good people it was greed that brought them back, not because they have changed

  17. Erriga's father does not even care that this young man is still carrying scars in his heart. The child in him is still hurting for being fatherless even though his father is still alive and well. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ˜’
