While some celebrities would want to hide their humble beginnings, Humblesmith believes in being open. In a recent interview with Saturday Beats, he revealed that he was a late bloomer when it comes to sex. He said he only lost his virginity around 2012 when he moved to Lagos.
“I was born and brought up in Ebonyi State but I was a virgin till I came to Lagos. I remained a virgin when I left Ebonyi in 2009 for Asaba where I spent three years. I came to Lagos in 2012 where I lost my virginity. When I lost my virginity it was fun. The truth is that if you taste something you have never tasted, if it is bitter you would never try it again, but if it is not, you may want to ask for more. For me, it was part of development and growing up. I still keep in touch with the lady I lost my virginity to because she has been seeing what I have been doing and we have been communicating. She comments that she is proud of me. She was the first and only girl I ever dated. At the moment, I am single.
“I am a straightforward person and I don’t think I should hide anything because I am not a kid. I am an entertainer and I am ready for anything. It is better you say the truth. I believe that it is good to teach your kids and tell them the truth so that they would know the way to follow,” he said.
The Osinachi singer said he is not envious of his colleagues who have ‘baby mamas. “I don’t have a baby mama but it is not a bad idea whether you intentionally or mistakenly impregnated somebody and you guys decided to keep it. I don’t have a girlfriend and I am sure it would never happen,” he said.
The singer shared some hardship he faced before the limelight shone on him. He said that he was a street hawker at some point in his life. “Growing up was tough and I would not say that our family was poor but as a man, I still had to hustle. I worked very hard to be able to eat. I hawked moin moin, akara, buns, soft drinks, groundnut, pure water and ice water on the street.” he said.
