Former Big Brother Naija Pepper dem housemate, Khafi has responded to a lady who made an insensitive comment about her baby after doing the viral NobodyLikeWoman challenge that depicts the negativity the society perceives about women.
This post comes after Nollywood actress, Joke Jigan had dragged female celebrities in the mud for joining Simi’s NobodyLikeWoman challenge, claiming they are liars.
In a previous post, the reality star shared a monochrome photo of herself inscribing how people have said she is always not showing her baby’s face due to his unattractiveness.
However, a lady named symplysharron on Instagram had rashly commented on the photo questioning her son’s appearance.
According to Khafi, women endure unspeakable things, and when they come out to share their thoughts they are tagged, liars, and attention seekers. Adding that anyone who feels offended by others sharing their truth should question him or herself.
Responding to the lady, she said her baby is beautiful just like his daddy, adding that every word we say shapes us as she prayed that no one says such cruel things about her (the lady) children, born or unborn.
For everyone who said I was lying or making up my previous post…
Women endure many unspeakable things and most times do so in silence. When they do share they get hit with labels like “attention seeker, liar” etc. We are so programmed to internalise hurt that when it is shared the hearer is more offended by the sharing than what actually happened. Regardless, I normally block and delete comments like this and keep it moving. But I’m guessing that is why @symplysimi started this challenge, because we shouldn’t have to. And if you feel offended by others sharing their truth, ask yourself why.
For Sharron who felt the need to say this, I pray no one says such about your children, born or unborn. My son is beautiful just like his Daddy and I hope my husband and I are able to raise our child in a way that he is so fortified in who he is in God that mean things like this don’t affect him, but not everyone is that fortunate. Wouldn’t it be easier if we were just nicer to each other? Every word shapes us, so I hope you’ll pick yours better in the future.
KemifilaniNews recalls that Khafi and her husband, Gedoni welcomed a son a few months ago as they shared an unseen photo of the baby.
