In this exclusive interview with Happenings, Nigerian music star, Iceberg Slim, talks about his public apology to his ex-girlfriend, Juliet Ibrahim, his career, and plans for the future.
Rapper, Olusegun Olowookere, popularly known as Iceberg Slim, has opened up on his public apology to his ex-girlfriend, Juliet Ibrahim, over their failed relationship.
The singer had earlier taken to social media to apologise to the Ghanian actress and producer for the wrongs he did during their time together.
Both celebrities had started dating each other in 2016 but eventually split just over a year ago following reports of his infidelity.
Iceberg, in his apology, admitted to cheating and taking his ex-girlfriend’s love for granted. He confessed that his apology was influenced by a hope for healing, as they moved on with their separate careers.
In the wake of Iceberg's apology, a few persons have criticised him, with some claiming his apology was a publicity stunt to promote his new song, "Way Up".
But in an exclusive interview with Iphie Nath of the ‘TGIF Show’ on Happenings radio, the talented musician disclosed that his motive was different from what was being reported.
"It's about closure, that's all," the Afropop singer answered when asked about the true reason he apologized.
"Definitely not! It's not a promo. Like I said previously, its something that was long overdue, it just needed to be done. Even if it was done three months ago, people will still say it's late.
"At the end of the day, it's about me. I decided to do it at the time I decided and God knows best.
The New York-born artist was then quizzed on how he felt about people's reception and reaction to him speaking out.
"I don't feel any type of way about it. My apology wasn't for the public, my apology was for one person, that's all that matters at the end of the day," he said.
"People's perception of it or their reception of it is not really my concern."
Juliet Ibrahim has since accepted his apology, although she insisted that it was coming late. She also ruled out any possibility of them getting back together.
