I once borrowed N50k to impress my babe – Boy Spyce

Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Ugbekile David Osemeke, known professionally as Boy Spyce, has revealed that he once borrowed money to impress his girlfriend.

The ‘Carry Me Go’ crooner disclosed this while being featured on Cool FM’s The Big Friday show hosted by reality star, Tacha, where he talked about the “weirdest” thing he has ever done for love.

According to Boy Spyce, he borrowed N50,000 just to prevent his girlfriend from going on a date with another man to a place she’s been dreaming of visiting.

The Mavin signee, who revealed that the incident happened years ago, however, said he will never do that again.

He said; “The farthest I have ever gone for love is borrowing money. It sounds very basic but it’s actually something I would never do anymore. If I no get, I no get. I no go kill myself to impress anybody.

This was years back. I think it was about N50,000. And at that time, it was a lot of money for me. She [my then girlfriend] was like she wanted to go and have fun and eat somewhere.

I think a guy wanted to take her out and I was like, ‘Why will you go out with a guy when you are with me?’ And she was like she has been wanting to go the place. She likes it. So, I have to go and like borrow money.”

Meanwhile in another news…

The leader of Farm Centre GSM Market in Kano State, Hassan Abubakar Bawasa recently banned traders from pasting pictures and playing or listening to the Davido’s songs

The announcer of the ban, who used a megaphone, said the market leader warned that any defaulter would be sanctioned decisively.

Davido sparked outrage after uploading a short clip for his signee, Logos Olori’s new single ‘Jaye Lo’ which had been welcomed with huge criticisms, especially by Muslims who considered the content “offensive and disrespectful” to their religion.

Bawasa who said that the ban is to be adhered to by Muslim faithfuls and non-Muslims that operate in the market, noted that it was as a result of Davido’s “blasphemous act against the religion of Allah.”

“Anybody who knows someone who pasted Davido’s picture in his shop, he should quickly remove and burn it because of his blasphemous act against the religion of Allah.

“Playing Davido’s music, video or sharing it is prohibited in Kano phone centres. Anybody found listening to his song will be sanctioned decisively. I convey you this message from Hassan Bawasa,” the announcer with a megaphone said in Hausa.

It came after the DMW founder deleted the controversial music video which he posted on Twitter. The footage captured a group of men, all in white ‘jalamiya’, praying, then, in a twist, they all transitioned into dancing in front of a mosque.
