Following the backlash he received, 9ice posted a video online on Saturday, November 21, asking Nigerians to help him beg his wife, Olasunkanmi.
In the video, the singer said this is his third marriage and he wants it to be successful, saying;
I have done something so shameful, something terrible and it is costing me my family and the most important thing to me right now is my family.
The 9ice that you always see and appreaciate is beacuse I have a backbone, Olasukanmi Akande and because of this terrible thing that I have done, it is costing me a whole lot.
9ice wedded his current wife, Sunkanmi, CEO of Lavish by Michelle Events, with whom he has a daughter in December 2019. It is his third marriage.
He married Adetola Anifalaje, a United States-based software engineer in 2018, and Toni Payne, whom he wedded at the onset of his career in 2008.
The singer added;
I apologise for what I have done and I need you guys to help me beg my wife. She is my backbone.
I have excelled in so many other things but one thing I have being failing is my marriage but this marriage, I want it to work. Please, help me beg my wife. Save this marriage for me.
While some Nigerians actually feel for him and are begging his wife to forgive him, others are of the opinion that he is only remorseful because he got caught in the act.
9ice has been married three times. If that was a woman, cheating three times, losing the marriage three times, and coming out to tell the world to beg her husband after doing this embarrassing crap, she would be under attack.
That’s what patriarchy looks like sometimes.

I like how no one is whining about 9ice’s privacy being violated by the women who leaked his videos online. Let’s maintain this energy when the genders are switched please.

I wish i knew 9ice personally cos I’d lov to ask him just 1 question “will u forgive your wife if she cheated on you?”
I’m a man & i can tell u 95% of men will never forgive their wives if caught cheating.
But no matter wat u & i think,d decision is left to that beautiful Lady.

A woman was brutally killed by her partner in a murder-suicide. All it took to take sympathy away from her was a false rumour of cheating and paternity fraud. People on here justified her murder.
A man cheats on his wife and the whole world gets to beg her for forgiveness. 9ice.

If truly 9ice wants his wife to forgive him after a very 9ice cheating video then why didn’t he forgive his ex wife Toni Payne when he accused her of same even though there was no evidence. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Just thinking tho 🙄🤔🙄 pic.twitter.com/top4HQmyFE

Nobody is even asking how 9ice’s wife is feeling. Nobody cares about her mental health. All they care about is for her to save the sinking ship. Very wicked and selfish people.

What stuck out to me immediately I watched a that 9ice’s video is how it was all about him and how he feels.
That’s how selfish people can be. He doesn’t deserve her at all.

9ice cheated and came online to tell people to plead with her, ‘cause she’s his “backbone”. Did anyone online assist in cheating on your backbone?
What was even worse was the soundtrack he used for the video 😭

Do you know how manipulating that 9ice’s apology is? The wife will look like the devil if she doesn’t accept it.
