Popular Nigerian Gospel singer, Gloria Doyle in a recent interview, has disclosed how her blood sister traveled to the United States, with her then husband.
Speaking further in the interview with The Nation, the singer stated that her name was fraudulently removed from the travel document and her plans to travel to the country was frustrated by her ex-husband.
Gloria’s ex-husband who is an American citizen, however traveled to the states with their children, alongside her sister. Reacting to a question on why she allowed that, she responded:
“Their father is an American citizen though he is a Nigerian by birth. He said he wanted the children to come over; I too thought it would be a better opportunity for them. So, I allowed them to go. It is not that I couldn’t have gone, but at that point, what happened was that he was actually having an affair with my younger sister, who is at present living in America through him. And when the children were going to America, the documents were altered.
“My name was removed, while my younger sister’s name replaced mine. So, when it was time for me to go to the US, I was denied visa. I have been denied visa three times now. It has got to a point where a DNA test is required to prove that I am the children’s mother and that is the point where it is. So, it’s only when my children come here that I can think of going to America. It has made my travelling out of the country very difficult.
“And that was the original plan, which was to frustrate me and make me unable to see my children again. But with God, things are looking good.”
Not too long ago, you were said to be very ill. Can you relive your experience?
“I was actually down with a gall bladder stone. I had a terrible stomach condition, which the doctors were worried about as it was considered close to the cancer of the stomach. Surgery was considered as an immediate option. But along the line, I didn’t do the surgery. So, I was placed on medications to see if it could alter.”
