Popular Nigerian investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, has advised young girls to learn from her personal experience as she recounted how she was impregnated and abandoned at 23.
In a bid to join the trend of people who had recounted their achievements at 23, the journalist rather took a twist to share a life-long experience with great lessons to learn.
Kemi shared her story in an Instagram post of how she got pregnant at the age of 23, and was abandoned by the man responsible, who is currently a popular Lagos State Executive, regardless of the fact that he promised he will marry her.
“At 23 I was a single mom who had a 6 month old son abandoned by his father who lied that he would marry me when I got pregnant. I later became a Clinical Pharmacist at $90K/yr. My son now 34yrs, never met his dad, an Executive in the Lagos State Govt. Young ladies get your PAPER
Don’t get pregnant on a promise. This is one of the reasons I vowed never to get married. Chioma get your paper like I warned you 2018, Pump your cooking show, classes, tour etc. Never depend on a man. Dropping out of school is a NO. STAY IN SCHOOL. Ain’t seen that man since 1986.
That man is someone you all know. I raised my son who will be 35yrs without a father. At the time his father’s side accepted the fact that I was right but his mother said he was old enough to father a child and called me a liar. Both parents are now dead. He was 31 when I was 23yrs. So 57 in 60 days makes him 65yrs.
Some huge public figures reached out to me to see if he ever asked for his child? I told them not in 35 yrs. Everybody talking about resemblance. Some of this man’s big boys friends in Ikoyi are actually shocked he fathered a child WITH KEMI OLUNLOYO and never supported the child but ending their friendships with him I hear.
We have moved on. Don’t let it happen to you young ladies. Learn from me. More in my vlog book #kemitalkslife where I will reveal his full name. I have not seen or heard from Babatunde since he left 1986. Get your education. He owes me 18 yrs of child support but that’s only money. Memories are lost.”
Hmmmm! Lots of lessons for young girls to learn. Don’t ever allow yourself get pregnant on the flimsy promise of marriage, if he likes you enough, let him go and see your parents; never ever contemplate dropping out of school because knowledge is power.
Don’t ever totally depend on a man financially, even when you are properly married; get yourself something to do and earn your own money because man will always disappoint you; it is only God that does not disappoint.
Girls, wise up!
