Veteran singer, Sir Shina Peters before settling down with his wife, Sammie Peters, used to play the field to the point that he has a son, Clarence, with Clarion Chukwura, then a young actress.


Peters recalled his days as a bachelor who was a popular singer and how several  women were throwing themselves at him saying it was difficult for him to pick his wife among the lot swarming around him.

“When I think about the fact that I am happily married, it is like a miracle because before now, whenever I finished a show, I would have about 250 women waiting for me. The question people should ask me is that out of all the women that swarmed around me, how did I choose a wife? I would say I was destined to be with my wife. It is not by our making; it was just destiny,” the Juju singer told Punch in an interview.

He also told the paper of how the temptation he went through derailed him from having his ideal family setting.

His word, “If not because of my profession, my plan was to have only one wife and two children. But the temptation that comes with this business is too much. I always look at things from the spiritual aspect; do you know how many handkerchiefs women have used to rub my face?

“Do you know how many strange eyebrow pencils they have drawn and used to wink at me? Do you know how many boobs they have shown me while performing?”
