Nigerian music star, Olamide‘s baby mama, Maria Okan has recounted how she had to come to terms with the fact that she was going to raise her daughter alone months after getting pregnant.
This is coming three years after the birth of her baby girl, named, Asaiah Monifé Maria.
The stunning young mom made this known recently via her Instagram page, while celebrating her new job at the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in the United Kingdom.
According to the On-Air Personality, real name, Maria Okanrende, she got to know she will be raising her child alone halfway into her pregnancy.
During the period, the former Beat FM OAP said she relocated to the United Kingdom to start her life afresh and after giving birth to her cutie, she said she started her career from the scratch and now she’s a presenter and producer.
“This is the story of a lady who relocated to the UK from Nigeria pregnant with her first child. Halfway through her pregnancy she realised she would have to raise the child alone.
After having her daughter, she started her career from the scratch in the United Kingdom. She is now a presenter and producer of the first-ever “Afrobeats Roundup with Maria” on BBC 1Xtra.”
Maria’s pregnancy broke the internet back in 2019 and the buzz was massive. The MTV Shuga actress had entered into a romantic relationship with Olamide with the belief that he was single and separated from his first baby mama.
“Olamide told her he was single that’s why she began a relationship. They loved each other,” a source revealed back in 2019.
However, the love affair began to fade away when Maria found out that the YBNL boss was still with his baby mama and long-time partner.
According to reports, the actress moved out of the country while she was pregnant.
In 2019, a story filtered online that Maria was pregnant, and Olamide was fingered as her Baby daddy. Said to have refused paternity, the baby shares a striking resemblance with her alleged father.
Maria, who was said to have kept the pregnancy against the rapper’s consent, allegedly deceived him at the initial stage with a promise to terminate the pregnancy. A source said:
“She collected money from Olamide for the supposed abortion, resigned from Beat FM and left for London. However, on getting there, she decided to keep the pregnancy.
Her action caused an imbroglio between the erstwhile lovers due to the sudden breach of agreement.
But then, don’t forget Olamide had a fiancée, Bukunmi, at the time of the incident. Bukunmi was also pregnant, and seeing that the situation won’t change and it was getting messier, Olamide opened up to his then pregnant fiancée, Bukunmi.
Maria, 32, once co-hosted the popular “Morning Rush” show on Beat 99.9FM. Olamide, on the other hand, welcomed his second son, Tunrepin Myles Adedeji with Bukunmi, before Maria had her baby.
