Nigerian Mum, Mmanti Umeh Tells The Compelling Sad Story Of How She Conceived Her Twin Boys Who Just Turned 21

A Nigerian tech-consultant named Mmanti Umoh has shared her story to inspire women who are in her shoes. Umoh took to her Twitter page to tell the compelling albeit sad story behind the conception of her twin boys, KanKan and Dada who just turned 21.

Umoh shared that she was a naive 15-year-old when her then employer ‘brutally’ raped her. From that incident, she conceived her twin boys.

While the circumstances surrounding the birth of her sons are unfortunate, Umoh says she has managed to rise above the pain and advised other women who have been through the same to see beyond their circumstances and not be reduced to a statistic.
Read her full narration below:
21 Years Ago, a 15 year old seeking to find her path was brutally raped by her employer, all she had to show was a twin birthed 9 months after.
Hid behind the childhood abuse, layers and layers of Rejection, often criticized, broken, bruised, she refused to be a statistic and..
…became the standard to many more young men and women who would be battered, abused…. TODAY…. the evening and the morning and it’s the 21st Birthday of my sons. Everything has changed since the blood. Happy Birthday KanKan and Dada.
IF I were allowed a choice of my battles, I would have chosen simpler conflicts but no, this life chose me and I will live it fully.
I have made a lot of mistakes but each time I look at both of you, I knew I did the right thing to keep you even when I didn’t know just how.
To every single teenage mom, to every young person who has been themed a mistake and misfit… here I stand your validation that “No one and nothing has the power to define who you become but you!” Choose what you will and desire to be.. well.
….to thousands of young men and women around Africa and the world who would be raped, battered, abused and denied a fair hearing just because they see us as kids.
You are not voiceless, you won’t forever be hushed. They will hear us. You are bruised and beautiful.
When you think of the Rapist Declare: I forgive you I let you go You inspire me To stand up against RAPE To speak up and tell my story I will do better I am proud of me Thank you unforgiveness is too heavy to carry around with me. I cannot carry you and grow. Now Breathe!!
