Why Media And Fans Know Nothing About My Personal Life – Rapper, Mode 9

3 Min Read

Nigerian rapper, Mode 9, who lives a vastly secretive life has opened up on why he’s chosen to keep his private business and family asides his music from the media.

The rapper known for his deep bars and lyrics in a recent interview with Punch noted that he guards his personal business with his life.


The 41-year-old rapper explaining his choice said: “I am not going to answer personal questions and if you notice my modus operandi, I guard my personal life with my life. I tell my family members to shy away from the press.

“My interviews are about my works; I drop an album and I want you to buy it. I don’t want people to know about my personal life, because I am an artiste and not a celebrity. I don’t do music to be famous. Everybody has a reason behind their action and I do music because I am good at it.

“Why do I need to be famous? It is a lie that the person in my life may feel bad that I don’t talk about her during interviews. If your wife works in a bank and you are an artiste, you don’t go to her bank and sit down.

“Likewise an entertainer, your spouse may come for a few shows but not every one of them because she knows you would not give her all your attention. Some people like to put their family in the limelight like the Kardashians but others don’t because they are private people and the fans need to respect that fact.”

Steering his point home, Mode 9 popularly called Modo added: “I follow rappers like KRS One in America and I have never woken up one day to find out who his wife is. I don’t care about any other thing but his music because I am a fan of his music.

“There are some people that are just too nosy and want to know everything about a person. You cannot know everything about me. I am from a different era, and in my era, we only follow the music and ignore every other thing.”
