By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

English singer-songwriter, record producer, musician, and actor, Edward Christopher Sheeran, popularly known as Ed Sheeran, recently admitted to having thought of dropping his guitar and fully focusing on his family after he and wife, Cherry welcomed their daughter last August.

He said in an interview that:

“I actually convinced myself I was never going to sing or pick up the guitar again. I was like, ‘No. This is it. I quit’

“I asked, what’s more important for my daughter and my family? Is it being there 110 per cent of the time and not going to London for a day […] Or is it having a daughter that knows her mum and dad have a great work ethic and really love their jobs?”

“‘I saw myself as technically being unemployed during that period of noncreation,” he continued. “And, to be honest, I was f**king miserable. I wanted Cherry to see me happy and thriving.’ this he said gets him upset.

Ed Sheeran is one of the best world’s selling artist, who has sold more than 150 million records worldwide and is set to release his new album next month while his single “Bad Habits” has spent over two months at number one.
