Rapper and “106 & Park” host Bow Wow will serve as the latest artist to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” when he’s featured on an episode that will air this Sunday, April 28.
During the episode, the newfound television host opens up about his one-year-old daughter who he hopes will be able to experience the small moments he was unable to.
“My life as a father is, is, is kind of new,” Bow Wow revealed. “My daughter’s only one years old. She’ll be two in April, April 27th. Shai lives in Los Angeles and I’m in New York full time, it’s so hard. You know, I Skype with her, and I just wish that I can just reach in there and grab her little self and I can’t…For her I just wanna make sure that you know she’s able to do the things I wasn’t able to do. I wasn’t able to go to school dances. I wasn’t able to you know try out for my basketball team ’cause I was on the road.”
Bow Wow also touched on his privileged youth and losing interest in the flashier things in life as he grew older.
“When I was younger I pretty much bought every car I wanted,” said the rapper. “We call it stunting you know that’s when you’re flashy and you got all the jewelry. But, like, I don’t even wear all that stuff anymore, like, I’m so laid back and you know, just chill. I feel like now I’m at that point in my life where that stuff doesn’t – it doesn’t identify who I am. I don’t need it anymore. I remember a wise man always telling me you know you’re still Bow Wow when you take all that stuff off right?”
Other notable celebrities to be featured on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” include Mike Tyson, Sinbad, and Marion Jones.
