Chocolate City rapper, Akumefule Chukwu-Emeka, popularly known as Blaqbonez, has declared monogamy to be unrealistic and admitted to being unable of staying faithful in romantic relationships.
The 25-year-old made the statement in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV’s Rubbing Minds show which was broadcast on Monday.
“First, everybody has to know that I cannot be exclusive,” said BlaqBonez, “monogamy, for me, is unrealistic. I will be a polygamous man. I’m not going to pretend to a girl and say ‘you’re the only one I care for’.”
Asked if he has been with any lover willing to accommodate his views, the rapper responded in the negative. Then, with some cynicism, declared that every man he knows is romantically unfaithful.
The rapper said, “Every time I tell them, they try to fix me. One thing I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt – no matter what, I will cheat. Every guy I know is cheating.”
When asked if he thought he is the best rapper in Nigeria, he said, “Right now, I am. Judging by how my album is right now, I don’t think there’s any rapper right now that is dominating the charts like that.”
On April 30, BlaqBonez debut his 14-track album, “Sex Over Love,” which featured the likes of Tiwa Savage, Nasty C, Joeboy, Amaarae, Buju, Cheque, PsychoYP, 1da Banton, Laycon and Bad Boy Timz.
The album is the emcee’s first body of work since “Mr. Boombastic” (2019), which debuted at #1 on Apple Music’s top album chart. It also follows his previous work, “Bad Boy Blaq” (2018) and “Bad Boy Blaq Re-Up” (2019).
In 2019, BlaqBonez was profiled by The New York Times as one of the new talents in Nigerian music.
