Shina Peters Says "Clarence Peters Is My Only Child- - - -
Afro-juju maestro, Sir Shina Peters, cannot stop talking about the impact his son Clarence Peters is making in the music industry. For a man who has dined with kings because of his gifts and his son talking after him, nothing could make more meaning than knowing that someone is there to take over from him.
He said “Clarence is my only child who had taken after me, and the joy of parents is for their children to achieve more than them. So, I am happy that, in my life time, I have a son who is doing great. This is a rare privilege, I am grateful to God for that. My prayer is that he should yet achieve greater things,” he said.
He said, “If you have passion for what you do, even if money is not coming in, you will not get tired. That is why we are telling these younger ones to go into music for passion, not fame or money. Artistes do not retire, though I am aware that civil servants do. If an artiste does not sing or perform again, things might not go well with such person. The only thing that could make me to stop doing music is death. But provided I am still alive, music is all I want to do.
