In his words:

“My brother (E-Money) is the godfather of the first son and this friendship and union we have with Junior Pope didn't start today, it’s been a long time and when this happened my brother said to me that we’re going to take up the three kids and make sure we take care of them till they grow. We can’t do that without the support or encouragement of the family so we are saying it openly to the family that we are open and ready to support the three kids till they grow to any level they can take care of themselves. As far as food, clothes, school, holiday, anything is concerned, we will do it.”
