I was looking for a God-fearing lady who wasn't excessively concerned with material possessions and who I could plan with a future with. Fortunately, I found those qualities in her” E- Money told Sunday Punch in 2015. Four years later E-Money married Juliet.

Before becoming rich E-Money has always liked the finer things in life. “From the onset even before we had our breakthrough, I had already developed a predilection for luxury and flamboyant living” he told Punch in 2015. He also revealed that he has always had a flair for music as a songwriter and prefers to be at the background.
