Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo has taken to social media with a strong message to all deadbeat dads.
In her post, the actress slammed deadbeat dads as she advised them to make a change by not abandoning the responsibility for their kid’s upkeep to the mother.
According to her, if they fail to amend their ways, they will not reap where they did not sow.
“I have this to say… if you are a father and you choose to be a deadbeat one for that matter….Watching a woman struggle all alone to bring up kids you both brought into the world.
My word for you is “Go make a change”. Because you won’t reap where you didn’t sow…
God will accept this one o, even if the reverse as been the case all this while, father’s eating where they didn’t sow.
Henceforth Dead beat fathers will not reap where they did not sow….if you can be wicked enough to watch a woman raise children alone… you won’t eat where you didn’t sow.
For every woman struggling… you shall live long to reap the fruits of your labor including me
In a 2013 interview, Biodun Okeowo revealed why she didn’t get married to the man she had two kids for.
“Is it compulsory for me to get married to him? Why? It is only in Nigeria that I see that ladies have to mandatorily stay in the house of the man they had children for. You shouldn’t be with a man you are not compatible with or someone you do not love, all because of marriage“, she said.
When asked if that was her reason for not getting married to her baby daddy, Biodun Okeowo added:
“Are you saying if a man tells a woman he’s no longer interested, she should force him? I have to move on with my life because my happiness is paramount to me”.
