Nigerian actress, Venita Akpofure has stirred reactions from netizens after sharing an emotional and educating video with her 5-year-old daughter.
In a video post she shared on her Instagram page, the reality TV star revealed that she will never deceive or lie to her kids about the reality of Life which is a huge flaw in African Parenting.
The celebrity mum disclosed that her 5-year-old daughter thinks that marriage is basically for making babies and gender reveals.
She, however, took the liberty to explain to her what marriage is all about. She went further to apologize to her for not having a father figure in the picture and promised to get married soon.
The former Big Brother Naija housemate was previously married to Terna Olusola Tarka and they have two daughters together. In 2019, she confirmed rumors that their marriage had crashed and also dismissed reports that he was a violent man.
Venita captioned the video;
“I get asked questions all the time about balancing Motherhood and Work. Truth is I’m also forging ahead blindly and trusting in God. I hardly post these kind of things but I just want those Queens who are doing the damn thing on their own to be encouraged.
My kids are brought up to hold people accountable and take accountability. As much as you may try all things are not perfect. And that’s ok.
Don’t fall under that microscopic pressure. A happy Parent is always best. I’ll never deceive or lie to my kids about the reality of Life. It’s a huge flaw in African Parenting. Tell the truth to your seedlings. Prepare the child for the road, NOT the road for the child.”
Speaking during an episode of the BBNaija Reunion show in year 2020, the reality star revealed snippets of events that led her to the decision to end her marriage.
The beautiful mom talked about losing her identity in the course of keeping a home together, a reality that didn’t quite make her happy.
According to the Pepper Dem Gang housemate, the life of being a stay at home mum was not one that she was exactly happy with. She decided to make a change at the point she realised her children could use the restroom independently (Read the rest of the story here).
