In an interview on GHOne TV, Lamptey said the problem began when his wife asked him to send their first child to the UK for her master's degree.

Lamptey said he felt the programme which was to cost £26,000 was too expensive, so he opted to send the child to Asheshi University, because, according to him, he had heard that the private university was a good one.

He said his then wife Gloria was angry at the decision and began divorce proceedings against him, claiming a lion share of his property and investments.

Lamptey said during the divorce proceedings, someone hinted him that his three children with Gloria are not his, so he conducted a secret DNA test, which confirmed it.

He said he considered committing suicide or inflicting a curse on Gloria, but his friend, and current wife, Ruweida Yakubu, prevented him from doing so.

Lamptey narrated how he spent lots of money taking care of Gloria's three children for over 20 years.

He said he took the children to good schools, including the Ghana International School.

He said time was not on his side, so he needed to make children as quickly as possible.
