Childlessness for 8years was the toughest time of our life - Ill Bliss break's silence

For the first time since the birth of his daughter , Nigerian rap artiste , Ill Bliss , opened up to Saturday Beats how he coped for eight years waiting to have a child .

Describing himself as a ‘testimony ‘, Ill Bliss said that the eight years of waiting for the fruit of the womb was one of the toughest periods for him and his wife . 

“It was the most trying time of our lives as a couple, but we never had doubts about having a baby . 

We were only concerned about when we would have the baby . We waited , kept praying and stayed focused . I don ’t know where I got the strength from, to be honest .

 I see couples that are under pressure to have a child after six months of marriage and they are worried. I waited for eight years and some months .

 My daughter turned nine months old this week . It is awesome and amazing to watch her grow. I am a testimony of God ’s goodness.

 If God could do it for me after eight years , he can do it for anyone looking for a child . The experience brought me closer to God ,” he said .

The rapper told Saturday Beats that he was lucky that he didn ’t face any pressure from his parents and in -laws but that it occasionally occurred to him that he had no child .

He said that only those who were very close were aware of what was going on in his house through the eight years .

 He said he decided to keep his life private and faced his work squarely . Ill Bliss said , “I am very lucky with the kind of parents and in -laws I have . They all supported us and kept praying for us . 

They kept advising us never to panic, that the kids were coming , so there was no pressure from their side . 

Naturally , as a person, I sometimes fell under that pressure that I was not a father yet but a lot of people did not even know my situation because I was always around children. 

I have relatives who have kids and I was always playing with their children because we are one big happy family.

 Everybody just kept praying till it happened . Nobody knew I did not have a child for eight years .”

Speaking about his humble beginning in the Nigerian music scene, the rap artiste told Saturday Beats that he and his partner , Clarence Peter , actually began their company, Capital , at the garage of Nollywood actress , Clarion Chukwura .

Chukwura is the mother of Clarence Peters .
“Clarence Peter and I started our office in his mother ’s garage . His mother gave us half of the garage to work in and that is where our company, Capital , started . 

That studio made all of us , it touched our lives and careers in different ways . 

We used to disturb her with so much noise at night she almost drove us out .

 From there , we acquired the next building and from there we began to buy the needed equipment instead of renting them .

 The good thing about Clarence and me is that we have mutual respect for each other . 

We stick to the work because we are both creative people and we do not strive to outshine each other ,” he said .
