Wyre dropped by our offices today.
The artiste spoke about a variety of things; from his career to his marriage. We asked the singer why he had decided to re-commit to his wife of 10 years, Hanifa late last year? He said that it was to show they have a great marriage.
He also added that it was for grounding, saying that for him family was everything. He said that family reminded him that he was human and that it was what he ‘lives for’.
He finished answering the question by saying that there was nothing more special than family for him, saying,
It is all I ask for, it is all I live for.
Wyre said the biggest lesson he had learned in marriage was that both partners should always be willing to listen to each other. He also confirmed that they had some challenges in their marriage but that he did not regret the journey.
He said that he wasn’t the type of person to put every detail of his personal life in the limelight. He said that he was cognisant of the fact that once you put your family in the public light, they become a target for everyone.
He said that he could handle the pressure that comes with the publicity as it is part of his job but at the same time he didn’t want people walking up to his family when he wasn’t there.
He also told our interviewer that his biggest critic musically was his wife and that she was brutally honest. He added that he would be releasing an album this year but that it still doesn’t have a working title.
