First runner-up of the first edition of Adom TV‘s reality show, Nsoromma, Nhyiraba Gideon, has disclosed that his father abandoned him and his mother after his birth.
The 12-year-old, who got featured on gospel songstress Celestine Donkor’s latest single ‘Agbebolo’ meaning ‘bread of life’, told Joy News‘ MzGee the lyrics of the song tell how Jesus Christ sustained him as a child from a poor background with no fatherly love or protection.
“This song talks a lot about me and I think it will also talk a lot about you too. I’m not from a very good background but still, the Lord has brought us far. Daddy run away after giving birth to me, I was left with mummy who is a trader,” he said.
Nhyiraba Gideon, who describes the opportunity to sing alongside Celestine Donkor as a ‘great privilege’, also added that he is not perturbed about the absence of his dad.
When MzGee asked if his current status has given his father reasons to locate him, Nhyiraba said: “no, I haven’t but I feel normal.”
