For several years, singer, Abolore Akande, 9ice has lived apart with his wife, Toni Payne. The rather controversial separation was highly reported in the media with several attempts made by family to salvage the situation which ended in futility.
After the breakup, 9ice has been battling to get his groove back without any success, his musical career went into comatose, he also tried his hands in several relationships, which haven’t really worked out well for him.
Just recently, the management of Coded Tunes, the record label which once had, 9ice, Olamide, 2Phart, and music producer, ID Cabasa under it, announced a reunion concert. The reunion concert is a coming together of all artistes formerly signed under the label in a world class concert scheduled to hold on May 10, 2015 in Lagos.
As arrangements are still in motion, sources inside the label informed this reporter that the reunion may be an all-rounder after all. The source stated that a new move to reunite 9ice and his estranged wife, Toni Payne has begun. The person spearheading the reconciliation move is no other than ID Cabasa the label’s official producer.
Although no official comment has been made, Cabasa is said to have the support of some influential members of Toni Payne’s family, who will appease her to forgive her husband and give him a new opportunity. It would be recalled that before now, attempts have been made to reconcile the two, without success.
Toni Payne is an entertainment entrepreneur and mother of 9ice’s first son Zion. Her marriage to 9ice ended few months after their wedding amidst claims of infidelity.
