Nigerian singer Iceberg Slim and his lovely boo, Juliet Ibrahim, are chilling. We’ve been following them every step of the way and so far they seem to be on another universe with their happiness.
However, as with any celebrity couple they have their critics, some of whom say that Ibrahim is older than the singer and also richer than him, therefore putting a question mark on the possible longevity of their relationship.
Iceberg Slim, real name Olusegun Olowokere, has responded to these criticisms by shrugging his shoulders, literally. Speaking with Punch Nigeria in an interview, he said that he does not care about this critics, even if they do not necessarily have all the facts.
“We are actually the same age and she is not taller than me, except when she wears shoes with high heels.” he first set off debunking some of the inaccurate critiques.
“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 said.
He added, about how they met and their love of posting pics of themselves online.
“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.” he revealed.
