Like most media outlets and bloggers, we got a report in our email stating that Phyno had knocked up a musician who goes by the name, RITA EDMOND and the reports goes further to say that she’s his girlfriend.
Here’s part of the report:
Reports reaching us this New Year is that Young Beautiful Singer Rita Edmond, who launched her music career last year in Africa,, has been put in a family Way. From all indication, this was meant to get a full 100% maximum secrecy,, until Bimbo an actress & a close friend of Rita , in a phone conversation blew it open. In the open phone conversation which was over-head by our source while on the set of a new Tv series. Rita Edmond’s friend was heard telling a friend that “the singer has hammered big time,,, as she was spoilt silly & also spent her Holidays in far away Dubai on the bills of Rave of the moment Igbo rapper Phyno,, who put the singer in a family way,, and is trying to get the Imo State born Singer to keep the baby”,,, The phone conversation,, also revealed that the Singer, Rita wants to get rid of the baby, so as to focus on her music career while Phyno is really keen on having the baby without Marital commitment… The Singer Rita Edmond, has also been rumoured to be the secret lover, that Phyno has always been visiting at nights in a guest house at Lekki Phase 1.
As you can see the report seemed so dodgy we didn’t pay attention to it.
Phyno however came out in an interview with Punch newspaper and stated clearly that he did not knock up anyone, and even says he doesn’t know who this said lady is.
“Believe it or not, I’ve never met or spoken to anyone by that name. I haven’t made any woman pregnant either. If people need three seconds of fame I’m glad that my name could help.” he says.
When contacted about the report, the lady stated to Punch Newspaper “The only information I can give you is that I am in love with a rap artiste. I don’t want to mention his name. Since different stories are flying around, I am trying to understand where everybody got their story from. Of course, I had a vacation in Dubai and I am back in Nigeria.”
Hmmm… If you ask me, someone was looking for some quick fame, but I guess we’ll find everything out in 9 months. Afterall WizKid, Ice Prince and 9ice have all denied their kids previously. But what do you believe?
