Singer and rapper Olamide’s alleged babymama, Maria Okan, has sparked mixed reactions online as she reveals how she started from scratch when Olamide refused to accept her daughter.
Maria Okan shared a video on Instagram revealing her story of how she started her life and career afresh and relocated to the United Kingdom halfway through her pregnancy.
Maria Okan also disclosed that she is now one of the sought-after presenters in the UK.
She wrote: This is the story of a lady who relocated to the UK from Nigeria pregnant with her 1st child.
Halfway through her pregnancy, she discovered she’d have to raise her child alone.
After having her daughter, she started her career from scratch in UK.
Now she’s the producer and presenter of the 1st ever AFROBEATS NEWS ROUNDUP at BBC1xtra
Mixed reactions trailed this video, with many surprised that Olamide had a baby mama while others bashed Maria Okan for having a relationship with an engaged man.
Kemi Filani recalls that in 2019, a story filtered online that Maria Okan of BeatFM was pregnant, and Olamide was fingered as her Babydaddy. 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.
“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,” source said.
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, before Maria had her baby.
