Ex Big Brother Naija “All Stars” housemate, Pere Egbi has said that his dad has never been part of his life.
The former U.S. soldier made this revelation in an interview with media personality, Hero Daniels.
He claimed that his mother raised him and his younger sister after his father left when he was 4 years old.
Pere, however, stated that his father’s absence did not have an impact on him, nevertheless, because “other male figures in the family stepped in and appropriately played the fatherly role.”
He said, “I like to say I’m from Bayelsa State because my mum is from Bayelsa. My dad, however, is from Delta State.
“My father has never been a part of my life at all.
“He left when I was about 4 and my younger sister was 3. He used to live in America before I was born.
“He came from America and married my mum, and then went back to America. A bunch of things happened, and my parents ended up separating. So, I was raised only practically by my mother.
“I’m the first child and the only boy. My mum was the only one who did everything to make sure we had shelter, good education. She paid our school fees from kindergarten to secondary school. And then, I left Nigeria for the United States to do a nursing degree. But before that, I joined the US military and served for six years. After serving, I came out and started my degree.
“I grew up in Warri because that was where I was born”.
