“I was in secondary school when I made my first boy and girl, then it was taboo. So it was a ‘hush hush’ thing. I even denied it was mine. Now, it looked like I knew what I was doing back then. Nothing is as beautiful as success. I have nine children and 14 grandchildren. My first son is 47 years old and an associate professor in MIT, Boston. My kids are all grown and no longer living with me, except for my first daughter, 46, who manages my real estate business. I am blessed with lovely children who are making me very proud,” the maverick told Punch.

The 66-year-old in the interview narrated how his efforts to become a priest went up in smoke.

He said, “I wanted so badly to be a priest because my father abused me with too much religion. I went to morning mass every day for 22 years, served as an altar boy. Bible class is what you dare not miss in my house then. So I naturally thought that being a priest would be such a cool thing to do back then, but it was clear to me that I had no intention to stop sinning any more. So, after six months in the seminary, I ran away. I had a wandering manhood and that wouldn’t match a life of celibacy, would it?”
