Ortiste Femi Talks Career and Late Father

The “Double Wahala” hitmaker, Oritse Femi who was involved in an
accident yesterday when trying to evade armed robbers got his new
Range Rover crashed talked about his career and his late father reaction
to his interest in music before he died in February.
Oritse revealed to Punch in an interview on December 6, 2014 that his
late dad didn’t like the kind of music he’s doing and he usually call the
police to arrest him.
In his words;
“My father wanted me to become an engineer like him, so he did not
support my music career. He knew I am talented but when I started
music, people who got involved were seen as miscreants. Although I am
from a polygamous family, I was one of my father’s favourites. He did
so many things to dissuade me from pursuing my career. Back then
whenever I got back home from a show, it was certain that he would ask
policemen to arrest me. Everybody in Ajegunle knew that my father
often asked policemen to arrest me. It got to a point when the
policemen in the area were tired of arresting me. So, whenever they
were asked to pick me up, they would release me the following
morning. When my father realised that the police were not helpful, he
built a guard room in our compound because of me. I thank God that at
the end of the day, I was able to convince him. I am really pained
because now that I have made it big in the industry, he is dead. I wish
he were alive to witness this but I cannot blame God”
