When asked what he loved about being a father, he said, “

“There is nothing more fulfilling than hearing that “Daddy! Daddy!” every time I walk through the door after I have been gone for a while.”

Speaking about how fatherhood has affected his career, he said, “Fatherhood has had me taking an extended sabbatical actually. I was not willing to leave the raising of my kids to the help of third parties.

“That is the much importance I place on our family’s divine calling.

“Thus, their arrival has given me the unanticipated but very welcoming gift of some much-needed time off to catch my breath and get ready for the biggest stage of my career, which, by God’s grace, is just about to take off.”

Going further, he said, “Aha! Now you get the point of my earlier answer about taking an unanticipated sabbatical to be a family man.

“I am so confident in the endowments that God has given me and the legacy that I have already achieved that I was willing to take time off to invest in raising these kids.

“A few years invested in raising great kids are nothing but a drop of water in the drum of one’s life.

“To miss the growing or ‘wonder years’ of your kids because you were too busy playing superstar is just a disaster! It is a catastrophic loss and I have nothing but sympathy for those who gave preference to work over family.”
