'My parents parted ways after they discovered they are brother and sister' - Harrysong

Harrison Tari Okri, popularly known as Harrysong is a fast rising R&B singer signed to Question Mark Records. In an interview with Yes! Magazine, he revealed how his parent gave birth to him not knowing they were actually blood relations. His words below:
I am an only child. I learnt that when my mother was alive, she met my father, then she was still in school and they were in the same class and in the same village. But they didn't know they were closely related. After my mum gave birth to me, she and my dad discovered they were actually brother and sister and subsequently separated. So, I was born based on what our villagers regard as abomination. They attempted to kill my father in the village, but he fled. Because in Warri where I come from, it's a taboo. They termed it incest. They both eventually married other people.

Choi! See revelation. Uwa mmebi. Offcourse it's incest and an abomination. People should always know who they are sleeping with. Ask around.

I can't seem to understand why you shared this with the world,I think it must be that the thin blood line that brother and sister used to concieve you is now telling on you. You want pity,you won't get it from me,what you'll get is advice,KEEP UR PRIVATE LIFE PRIVATE! Ode

You are a big vulgar insensitive mumu!! This guy jst poured his heart out n if ur read properly u'l see that his parents were properly in a situation where they cldnt investiage properly. That era isn't our era where we can now access information.U do not knw their circumstance @ d time or if his parents themselves came frm polygamous homes so y judge. They did damage control by moving on

@ Lilspicer, because if he didnt say it now, some bad belle person would have revealed it sooner or later.

Y.Tee said...

Shut the f*ck up idiots. So becos his parents made a mistake, it must affect his life??? Why dont you go kill him becos he's an abomination?? Two people made a mistake, and the person you choose to blame is a result of that mistake!
Haaaa, when will Nigerians stop hurting eah other with their judgemental tongues???
@ you blabbing about "if u just see TOTO,....u go chook PRICk' Do you know the bloodline of all the people you've done it with???? Awon olodo oshi.
PS- Better start putting the title'Judge" in front of yur names.

So you will learn from the mistake of his parents.

gab said...

this is pretty sad. i think the fault was from his grand parents. i know a few people from a polygamous set up, who do not KNOW alltheir siblings. or men who refuse to acknowledge children born to them out of wedlock. this is d aftermath of it cos this siblings meet in d future fall in love , only to realise that they r siblings. but i only wonder why his parents didnt know cos since na for village, the village amebos would have hinted them cos theres really nothing hidden in d village. they tend to now all the families of witches, prostitutes, etc.

oscar said...

Our people say DEATH is not a bad thing cause is part of the cycle rather what is a bad thing is incest. It is abomination indeed cause religiously and traditionally it is forbidden...... Now your father never married your mum cos if it is marriage he would hav asked question. So you cant say they went separate ways cos no marriage uncured.

Then again while confess to the whole world, are you guilty of a sin you did not commit.

This guys has nothing to do with what his parents did. He is a free man and before God perfect. No man created himself (or herself), and no child is accident.

Why is anybody blaming his parents? His grand-parents are the ones to blame.

This should be a reminder to those irresponsible men who have kids everywhere and women who have kids for other women's men.

To first person who asked - what does that make him, your answer is HUMAN BEING.
In the bible, Abraham and Sarah were brother and sister.

At least they separated, there were a couple on a talk show a few years ago that would NOT separate after they knew they were brother and sister. They continued to sleep with each other.

Errrr..... This is the kind of stuff you go around saying. He's honest but i think its too heavy esp with the society we live in. Pple are gonna start acting and treating him funny (that's a fact!)

That being said, its no fault of his and he's on this planet for a reason and it is the same God we serve that created him. He's not a mistake, i believe God has a purpose for you Harrysong. Keep doing what you do dear.

By the way, i LOVE your song 'i'm in love'. i mean like seriously dude.

This guy is an idiot, blood relatives having sexual relations is termed incest in most parts of the world, not only in Warri. It is also a taboo or an abomination in most parts of Nigeria, except Fulani-land, I think.

Its sad that the typical Nigerian way of denying the truth and hiding it even in the face of overwhelming evidence just manifested itself here. A guy poured his heart out and the hungry Nigerian wolves pounced . . . . .

one word - three letters


MFM!

Go for deliverance quick as innocent as you were and though no fault of your own - ol boy you get work to do.

What you father and mother did albeit unknowingly has untold ramifications for you if left untreated / undelivered.

Again one word - three letters: MFM

preferably headquaters.

God Be With You!
