“Father who didn’t raise me now feels entitled to my money” – Erigga fumes during an interview

Popular rapper, Erigga has criticized his father for assuming he deserves some part of his wealth when he had little to no involvement in his upbringing.


Popular Nigerian rapper, Erigga has severely criticized his father for assuming he deserves a part in his wealth even though he had little contributions in his upbringing.

Erigga made this known in the first episode of Phyna’s podcast, Spill with Phyna.


Erigga disclosed that his father abandoned him when he was eight years old and throughout he had to raise himself, only for his father to come out and chastise him for not providing for him.

Erigga stated that his father has been reaching out to him since he became famous, trying to get things from him one way or the other.

Erigga said …

“When you see parents start feeling entitled, it doesn’t make sense because you had many years ahead of me, why didn’t make it before me? People don’t really address this entitlement mentality in Africa.

I was facing the street alone. I was involved in too many things that I can’t even say on camera. And I just keep wondering like what if I was shot or arrested? Because most of the people I was with then are either dead or in jail.

I had to start raising myself at the age of 8. I started living with my friends and learning bad habits. But then again, I fell in love with music at a very tender age so I knew where I wanted to be regardless of where I was.

Then many years later, I now become Erigga then somebody comes and say, ‘Yo! You’re not taking care of me. You’re not doing this and that.’ And I’m like, ‘Bro, na relations we be because you no father the father wey you suppose father normally. I don father myself alone. And I can’t give you the credit.

All my stepbrothers started begging me to forgive our dad, saying he wasn’t also responsible to them. But at the end of the day, they are only having the conversation with me because I am who I am.”
