Lekan Akande is the son of controversial fuji musician, Obesere, who was involved in a rape scandal last year. In a new chat with Saturday Beats, Lekan insisted that his father never raped the victim. Here’s what he said:
In“I did not believe the story. My whole family did not believe it and we were solidly behind my father. It did not affect our family. I know my father well and I know that he does not womanise. And then again, he has been vindicated by the police. Even before that, we knew that he was innocent. I understand the entertainment industry and know that such things are bound to happen because there would be detractors trying to tarnish his image. The industry is filled with blackmailers that are out to ruin people’s reputation. My relationship with my father has not changed. I envy the feat he has attained in his career and I hope to surpass him.
He however says he doesn’t want to be like his father…
“I want to carve my own image; I don’t want to follow in my father’s footstep. I don’t want to be under his shadow. I want to do things my own way. Doing things this way would make me feel happy and comfortable. I don’t want to venture into a terrain that I am not familiar with and in the end, I would get confused. My father has created a name for himself, so it is time for me to do the same thing.”
