Although ever since their relationship was made public, a few opined that the ace actress from Ghana could have done better with her choice of partner. This is because some people feel that the actress is richer and older than her sweetheart.
Reacting to such insinuations, the singer said that such comments neither faze him nor his lover.
“We are actually the same age and she is not taller than me, except when she wears shoes with high heels. I don’t care if people think she is older than me or she has more money. A relationship is shared between the two people involved in it so if anybody has anything to say about our relationship, they should feel free, but it does not faze us.
I mean, even Jesus Christ was criticised, so who are we? Anybody can say anything about us because, at the end of the day, everybody has freedom of speech. Whatever they say does not faze us because we know what we saw in each other.”
He continued, “I met Juliet Ibrahim in Durban, South Africa about a year and a half ago. We exchanged contacts and became friends. Our friendship later grew into an amorous affair and at the end of the day, we just became a happy couple. The fact that we did not make our relationship a secret by posting our loved-up pictures online is because we are being ourselves.
“We chose not to follow the African mentality that you must keep your relationship secret because of the society or media. We are enjoying ourselves and getting to know each other as a couple. There is no reason why I should hide her; she is celebrating me because I love her and I am doing the same as well. This is not something we should hide.”
Iceberg Slim told Saturday Beats that when he lost his mother early in the year, it was his girlfriend that helped him get back on his feet.
“This year has been quite rough for me because I lost my mother, but I was still able to release my recent song, Oluwa. The song and video have been doing very well and I am grateful to God for them. This year has been a roller coaster ride.
“My girlfriend, Juliet Ibrahim, is my new muse. She encourages me to be a better person. When I lost my mother, I withdrew into my shell. I began to ponder on a lot of things in life and everything that I was doing. I began to ask if life was worth living because life is short, but my girlfriend helped me bounce back by putting things into perspective for me. She advised me to keep making music because that is why people love me,” he said.
