Proverb talks about how his failed marriage helped him as a human being. Proverb was involved in a split with his longtime wife who he had a family with sometime last year. The rapper was broken at the time but in an interview with Masechaba Ndlovu on Power FM’s – Power Life, Proverb revealed that being in that predicament affected him in a positive way.
“In the middle of the darkness, it’s pretty hard and it’s pretty lonesome and it’s cold. But with the faith that the other side is brighter, is better, I think that’s ultimately what fuels you to keep going. Also, I had to stop being selfish because at the time I was all about me, the victim, me, me, me..but when I stepped off of that and realised that I have my children, my family, my career it almost stopped being about me” said Proverb.
“It’s the feelings of inadequacy, the feelings of failure, the feelings of just not being enough but since then, I have come to introspect. I know myself better, I know my worth better, I know my value better, I love myself like never before and quite frankly in some twisted way I feel like I may not have had some of these revelations had it not happened” he explained.
