She said, “I don’t have a problem with anybody being a journalist or with anybody trying to make ends meet. Do you, but not by hurting others because, at some points, we need to sit back and think about the effects of what we do on the persons involved. It is easy to hide behind our keyboards to insult our leaders and people in the public space without knowing that we as individuals are not better than them in terms of what we do.

“This is not the first time this will happen. The first time this person would post something about me, I was shocked but I just let it slide then because I felt my response would only strengthen the news.”

The actress added that speculations came about because people, including some of her colleagues in the movie industry, have always wondered about her private life because she has chosen to set her personal life aside from social media.

“I am not responding now because of me, as that is the price you pay once you’re known because if that is not the case, why would everybody believe they are entitled to your private life? They want to know if you have a husband if you have a child they want to know. They want to know everything about you because you are a celebrity,” she said.

“Think about it, does it make any sense for a woman to have a child for a man and keep the child away from him? Lateef is one of the successful actors we have in Nigeria. If I have a child for him, why will that be a shameful thing that I wouldn’t be able to proudly say? If I am dating him, why will I be shy to say that? Am I that foolish? I must really look dumb to some people. If anybody is in a relationship with Lateef and hides it, they must have their reasons but how is that my business?

“If I have a child for him, why would I hide it? Is he crippled or is he a married man that I will be ashamed to be with? Lateef did not even know that I was pregnant until I told him after I put to bed. It was my birthday and he called to wish me a happy birthday when I told him that I was in the hospital because I just delivered a baby and he was shocked,” she said.
