Gabriel Oche Amanyi, aka Terry G was synonymous with controversy, but according to a report by Punch, the music artiste has confessed that all his controversial acts were “for the art”- although he regrets some of them and feels victimised by some others as he is “now a scapegoat” for staying true to the streets.

He said “ I am still paying the price for my past. I did certain things I can never do again. I was a young boy, who was just having fun and enjoying music. My past still haunts me as I speak to you, as I am being judged for those actions. I have done things I am not proud of.”

He added, “I am now a scapegoat all because I represented the streets and I was not afraid to show it… I have many regrets, which I take as lessons in a way. If I had known better, I wouldn’t have done certain things.

“But I do not think what I sing or say determines who I am. One day, Nigerians will realise that art is different from reality. I made my mother love Patience Ozokwor because she had the impression that she was a wicked woman because of her roles in movies. I made my father love many musicians too. I made them understand that what they were doing was an art.

“Sooner than later, Nigerians will understand that the all the crazy things I do are just for the art; I am an actor. I am yet to do most of the things the new artistes do in their videos, yet people still see me as the most terrible person. In other countries, nobody makes an issue out of those things”.
