Both actresses gave varying opinions on the subject matter with Yoruba film actress, Toyin Aimakhu, who first spoke on the re-occurring trend, criticized it blaming women who let $ex be a motive for sticking with men instead of love and companionship.
However actress Adunni Ade claims being a baby mama is a choice and a matter of understanding. She says:
“I take it personal when a person feels like they’ve got the right to speak on a person’s lifestyle, relationship status or what not. Just because some choose to be quiet about your dirty laundry does NOT give you the right to speak about another. Just like every other single mother or so called “Baby Mama”, it’s either a choice of being in a miserable relationship or getting out and keep pushing for their Child(Ren) P.S so you know, a lot of single parent (male or female) do a great job providing for themselves and children than you who sits in a miserable, horrible, heartbreaking relationship. We are not to be defined by our relationship status!
“Your dedication, hard work, persistence to your existence in this world should be your focus. Just because a lot of us don’t share our life story to the public does not mean we are not survivors. Face your life! Face your work! Be a great example to others! Be remembered more for the good and not bad.”
The current baby mama trend has taken away marriage from both star celebrities and upcoming ones.
