It’s no secret that Iyanya lost his parents and brother under very tragic circumstances and very young. He lost both parents within a year, both passed in 2008, his mum was 42 and his dad 50. The pop star also recently lost an older brother who had long battled with compications from an accident as a child.

All Iyanya has now are his younger sisters Hannah and Ify. The top selling music artiste took to Instagram today to show some older brother love for Hannah, with a side profile pic of the pretty girl. He wrote, “She looks like me,shes just like me#iloveyouhannahmbuk”
Iyanya you need to keep your lil’ sis away from all these thirsty boys ooo!

They died in 2008, before my Project Fame exploit. It’s a long story to go into how they died; I don’t want to talk about it. My mum died at the age of 42 and my dad died at 50.

“I am thankful, because I know they are somewhere better and they left a whole lots of things for me. My late mum made me realize that there is nothing really in this world than just being a good person. I have been trying to live with that, even though I can’t please everybody.

My Dad also taught me to be responsible for every action I take as an adult. I am just living with what they left for me. I mean, their prayers and words still linger.

I know their death came too early and it happened in ways I don’t like to talk about. It’s not a thing that makes me happy. But it’s a lesson for me now. I am trying to live a good life.

My parents are not the only people I have lost; I have also lost my elder brother, who died recently as well. He had an accident as a kid and since then we had been battling with it, but he died recently. He died the same period my parents did. It’s so painful but I have to move on – See more at: http://www.lailasblog.com/2013/04/iyanya-talks-about-his-late-parents-and.html#sthash.OqfHUKeI.dpuf
