This week the band members revealed some intimate information about topics they rarely speak about. One of those members, the lanky Bien spoke about the insecurities he had in marriage.

‘Stop giving us pressure, time for babies will come,’ Bien tells fans who are asking to see Chiki pregnant

The singer who recently got married recently admitted that at times he feels he might not be bringing enough to the table to his wife´s satisfaction.

Bien and Chiki had their nuptials on Friday, 6th March 2020 in an exclusive affair having dated for a long while before then.

He shared:

“In my relationship, I am sometimes insecure I am not doing enough. Like I bring home bread to my wife and maybe I am not doing enough for her to be happy in the relationship. Sometimes I am very insecure about what I bring to the table as a man.”

Another area the musician felt insecure about was his body size. The singer has always been the tallest(plus skinny) person in the room.

¨I was so insecure that I was so thin. What I am insecure about is, growing up, I was so insecure that I was so thin. In high school, the biggest boys get everything – the food, the respect, you know. Based on how aggressive you are and I was the least aggressive, the thinnest guy in my class and the weakest guy.”

This resulted in him getting tagged ´skele´ meaning the skeleton of the school. Early in his career, Bien avoided appearing in images and videos, all because ´he was not the handsome guy´.

Further growing up I would look at myself in the mirror and be like I am not the most handsome guy in the world. I am not a mainstream kind of handsome and I am not photogenic and it just made me insecure. Throughout my career actually, I am not big on pictures and videos. I stay away from all kind of visuals and it is vital now because music has become an audiovisual experience and it requires me to be seen. Taking videos makes me insecure and how I look in every picture makes me insecure.
