It's not news that popular black American On Air Personality Dan Foster ( formerly of Cool fm and Inspiration fm) dated Linda Ikeji in the past. In an interview with Punch which I saw on Romance Meets Life he opens up about their relationship and why it didn't work out with her.
First allow me to say, generally speaking; when a guy says he's not good enough for a woman, in my opinion that's just BS and he's just not that into her. Shikena.
The following is an excerpt from the interview.
But Linda is doing well now; don’t you feel you should have married her?
She is a nice kid. I hope she is able to find someone but she has to find the right person. She is really into what she is doing. She is an honest kid. I thought I wasn’t good enough for her. I kept asking her why me. But she was really into me. I couldn’t believe it.
I took her for granted. I felt she could always find a fine model on the runway. But she was so really serious about me. She was in love with me. But it didn’t work out. I took her for granted and I was dating another person while I was dating her. I tried to keep a relationship in Abuja, another in Warri while she was in Lagos. Ah! It was a nightmare. I wouldn’t want to go through that again.
I had three beautiful women at a time and I lost them all. They were all waiting. One of them knew about all the rest. She could have been the one. I hurt her so badly. She even left the country after we broke up. I felt bad. I went to the cinema to get my head together on a Saturday morning and that was where I met my wife. See how God works. Look at my kids. They are wonderful children.
Please allow me to share my thoughts sha, whether my opinions matter or not... RUMOUR has it that Dan Foster was still married to his American wife who he had a kid with when he dated Linda Ikeji and a host of others.
He didn't love Linda, probably didn't even like her. He talks in detail about her deep love for him and how serious she was about him. But all he has to say about his feelings towards her; "she is a nice kid". WTH?
Ahn ahn, oga Dan only you; Lagos, Abuja, Warri? Issorai.
He was dating three beautiful women who all loved him dearly but he was just playing them all. In fact, out of the three he had feelings for only one, the one that could have been "The One". Yet in spite of this he still dumped her and hurt her so badly, so so badly that heartbreak led her to flee the country for her sanity.
And then it was after he dumped somebody's daughter like hot yam that he went to the cinema to "clear his head" and there he met his wife. Then says in relish; brothers and sisters rejoice with me "See how God works." And the church shouts Hallelujah!
No. Nobody will judge or admonish you for all the women you used and dumped. They do not matter in the scheme of things na. Yes o! You're the man, the bawse and that's just how God works. God works in such a way that he allows you to marry a woman, get her pregnant and have a child by her, then get a divorce and date multiple women at the same time, dumping each one whenever you get bored, sleeping with whomever you so please. Then one day you go to watch a movie where you meet someone, and you suddenly realize that you're tired of playing around and then you 'wife' her. And now that's how God works.
Dan Foster I'm getting you jare.
It really is a man's world after all.
PS: let this be a lesson for all heartbroken persons. Remember the Let Them Go message? When somebody you love so much treats you shabbily and doesn't want to be a part of your life LET THEM GO. You never know what God is doing for you by removing them from your life. Who knows if Linda would have come this far in her career if God allowed the wrong man to stay in her life...
