A former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tokunbo Idowu, aka TBoss, has said that it is unwise for people to have children they cannot feed.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “I totally agree that children are blessings but having kids that one can barely feed is an unwise decision.
“I want to be able to comfortably feed and cater for my little ones. The world is such a beautiful place with so many nice things to see and places to visit. I would love to experience life with my kids which would be a hassle if I am not financially equipped.
Speaking about her driver who wanted to sell one of his triplets to her because he did not have the financial means to take care of them, she said, “I had a driver many years ago when I just moved to Abuja whose wife gave birth to triplets and he asked if I would be willing to buy one or two of them because he could not afford (to take care of them), and there were other kids at home.
“I initially thought he was joking. I believe it is the level of poverty in the country that pushed him to do something like that.”
On why she chooses to post pictures of her daughter on social media, unlike some other celebs who don’t like to reveal the identities of their children, she said, “Celebrities are human beings too, and they should be allowed to raise their children whichever way they desire, as long as they are not endangering the child.
“I did not post my daughter’s picture on social media until I felt ready to do so. Even now, there are still many moments I choose to keep to myself. I am savouring every bit of this motherhood journey. I share the things I want to and guard the rest jealously.”
Highlighting what motherhood has taught her, she said, “Motherhood has taught me patience. If one is not a patient person, which I never used to be, one would struggle. I am still constantly working on myself though. It is a deliberate decision and I believe I am going to be an amazing mother.”
