Is Marcus his biological son?

The question of whether he is the biological father of Marcus or not is raised after a shocking revelation of Ex-Ghanaian footballer Michael Boye Marquaye who claimed Marcus to be his biological son. 

In an interview with Ghanaian radio station Star FM in 2020, he revealed having a relationship with Marcus’s mother Melanie 22 years back. 

He said Marcus is his biological son and claimed that Marcus knows it, having said they have not seen each other for several years. 

Marcus was initially angry with him, thinking he abandoned him, but that was not the case. He wanted the world to know that he was his biological son and that he possessed Ghanaian roots. 

He further added many people are trying to reach him in an attempt to get a new story and make news, but he is not the type of person who looks for an easy way to get money and become famous, and there are a lot of things he has prepared to show Marcus when he meets him. 

He only wanted to make things clear and let the world know that Marcus has Ghanaian roots because he is from Ghana. However, Marcus has not responded on the matter publicly to date.

The struggles and the sacrifices his ex-wife faced while raising their kids as a single mom

His ex-wife Melanie Maynard during an interview with BBC breakfast, opened up her struggles and sacrifices she made throughout their kids’ childhood. 

She revealed doing three jobs without which she would not have been able to cook a pot of food. 

She said of Marcus telling the story from how he sees it, and the words he has been saying are from his bottom of the heart. 

Recalling her past, she added that sometimes the situation would be so bad that she would instead feed her kids rather than herself. 

There were times when she didn’t get anything to eat and when her kids asked if she have had hers, then for their satisfaction, she would reply saying she had. 

And sometimes, they didn’t have a loaf of bread in the house. Hearing his mom, Marcus replied, saying he did not see all the struggles and sacrifices she made as a weakness but helped appreciate everything ten times more. 

As per him, in sports, one has to have something behind that keeps pushing. When one comes from pain and struggle and pain, it switches and becomes one’s drive and motivation.
