“My Mother & Father are Siblings” - Harrysong

Nigerian pop music star, Harrysong aka Mr Songs has revealed a personal deep secret in an interview with Yes magazine. According to Harrysong he is a product of a brother and sister relationship as his father and mother are related.  Read extract from the interview after the cut.
You mean you are an only child?

No. It’s just that after my dad and my mum gave birth to me, they separated and went their different ways. So, my father got married to another woman and also my mother to another man. They separated because I was given birth to by two relations. My father and mother are actually brother and sister. They gave birth to me before they could realize that.

Well, I learnt that when my mother was alive, she met my father. Then she was still in school and they were in the same class and the same village. But she didn’t know that they are closely related. So, I was born based on what our villagers regarded as abomination and therefore they had to separate. 

Are you saying that the discovery actually led to your parents’ separation?

Yes, of course! Because it was a big abomination, so they had to separate. Even, they attempted to kill my father in that village, but he fled, because in Warri where I come from, it is a taboo. They termed it incest.
