Loverboy crooner and the widely acclaimed hunk of the Naija music scene, Iyanya got all syrupy with emotion during the week, reminiscing on what he called the worst moment of his life.

The singer posted a picture of his bare body, showing the rocky worked-out chest and his forearm and pointing to the tattoos, saying " tattoo of my late dad, late mum and late brother who all died in just a short time between 2008-2010"

Must have been a depressing, crushing moment for the star. He never explained the tattoos until now.
