Oritse Femi Opens Up On Late Father – ‘…My Father Used To Employ Police Men To Arrest Me’


‘Double Wahala’ singer Oritse Femi who unfortunately got into an accident this morning trying to evade armed robbers, crashing his new Range Rover spoke up about his fathers reaction to his interest in music before he passed on in February.

Oritse Femi Ekile revealed to Punch in an interview on December 6, 2014 that his late dad was strongly against him becoming an artiste. The profession his father had in mind for his son was for him to be an engineer.

This is what he had to say

“My father wanted me to become an engineer like him, so he did not support my music career. He knew I am talented but when I started music, people who got involved were seen as miscreants. Although I am from a polygamous family, I was one of my father’s favourites. He did so many things to dissuade me from pursuing my career. Back then whenever I got back home from a show, it was certain that he would ask policemen to arrest me. Everybody in Ajegunle knew that my father often asked policemen to arrest me. It got to a point when the policemen in the area were tired of arresting me. So, whenever they were asked to pick me up, they would release me the following morning. When my father realised that the police were not helpful, he built a guard room in our compound because of me. I thank God that at the end of the day, I was able to convince him. I am really pained because now that I have made it big in the industry, he is dead. I wish he were alive to witness this but I cannot blame God”

Oritse Femi recently shot the double wahala video with Dbanj spoke proudly about their collaboration, saying his fans should expect his success levels to keep increasing thanks to his work with D’banj.
