Media personality Morayo Afolabi Brown has taken to social media to defend her colleague, Beecee Ugboh, who bashed Davido’s babymama, Chioma, for leaving school and going after the sensational singer.
The TVC host had condemned Chioma for leaving school to be with Davido; She, however, prayed to God not to let her have children who will not have sense.
The video generated widespread reactions as netizens slammed the TV Host, demanding she apologises to Chioma Avril Rowland.
However, her colleague Morayo Brown in a lengthy post on Instagram, defended Beecee Ugboh, saying that no parent will be happy seeing her child leave school to be with a man.
She wrote: For those of you who sent insults to @beeceeugboh for her comment on this issue, this post is for you. Nothing is wrong with disagreeing with her. That’s what the show is about, expressing diverse views but insulting her was wrong. Many of you want to go to America, Canada or UK but you don’t respect divergent views. Why would you insult someone for expressing her view?
Secondly, she did not insult Chioma. What she was alluding to is that we must teach our children sense.
I know having children inside wedlock is going out of fashion, but should we, because we don’t want to “be dragged” accept this malady? We all scream to the government to follow due process but when it comes to relationships we throw due process to the wind. We teach children to finish school, then get married. We have very few role models today like Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Shola David-Bora, Oby Ezekwesili, Jumoke Adenowo and Ibukun Awosika. Unfortunately, some other prominent role models today did not follow this path and because they have money, we should overlook it? We are so used to calling good bad and bad good. I don’t know any parent that will be happy to see their child leave university and follow man. When I was growing up that was unheard of. However, if it happens we’ll still support the child the best we can but we must not make it the norm. We must discourage others from toeing this line.
If Chioma chose this path, we’ll accept her for who she is and the success she has become but that should not become the standard. Oun ti o da ko da, ko lo ru ko meji.Photo Credit: Getty
