To say that Gongo Aso crooner, Abolore Akande , aka 9ice , has been in the eye of the storm would amount to stating the obvious .
During the week , the singer became a topic of discussion on social media when a video of him fondling a lady that was not his wife surfaced online .
Another picture showing him naked also went viral .
Despite the scandalous picture and video, 9 ice initially appeared unperturbed as he even asked fans to share the video of his new song as much as they had shared the lewd materials .
Posting the video of his new song , ‘ Zaddy ’ , on Thursday , November 19 , he added the caption , “ Same way you ’re promoting this scandal video, please promote my song .
#zaddyzaddy . Thank you .”
However, he made a volte – face on Saturday , November 21 , when he implored fans to beg his wife for his ‘ shameful ’ act .
He uploaded a video of himself pleading with fans to beg his wife for forgiveness and added the caption , “ Save a sinking vessel .”
In the video, he said , “ I have done something so shameful and terrible , and it is costing me my family.
“ The most important thing to me right now is my family .
“ That 9 ice you always see and appreciate , it is because I have a backbone , Olasunkanmi Akande .
“ This terrible thing I have done is costing me a whole lot. I apologise for what I have done and I need you guys to help me beg my wife . She is my backbone .
“ That 9 ice that you always see , that strives to bring out the best in our culture , it is because I have a backbone . I apologise for my wrongdoings and need you guys to help me beg my wife .
“ I have excelled in many other things but one thing I have been failing at is my marriage . I want this marriage to work . Please, help me beg my wife . Save this marriage for me .
“ Thank you so much . God bless you .”
However, the singer’ s colleagues in the entertainment industry and fans were divided over his apology, as some commended him , while some berated him for his actions .
