Some People Tried To Make Me Abort My Baby - Bisi Ibidapo Obe

Here's what top Yoruba movie actress and producer, Bisi Ibidapo- Obe told Kayode of PMNews about her new baby, how she felt after former lawmaker, Dino Melaye denied being responsible for her  pregnancy.
  • You are now a mother. How do you feel?
In fact, this is the greatest thing to have happened to me. I am exceedingly happy to be a mother.  I am so grateful to God that He has counted me among mothers. This is what I have wished for all my life. Motherhood is sweet!
  • How did you feel when the father of your daughter rejected the pregnancy?
It was shocking and I felt bad but it was nothing to me. During that period, I didn’t allow it to bother me too much.
My primary aim then was to have a safe delivery and to God’s glory I was able to have that. The scandal was too much then, but I didn’t allow it to affect me.
  • Did you ever consider abortion as an option then?
Never! I rebuke that in Jesus name. This is what I have craved for. This is what many rich men and women cannot afford to buy with money and God now blessed me with such gift.
It never crossed my mind because I considered her (the baby) a gift from God. Why should I abort the baby? You needed to see me then. I flaunted the pregnancy anywhere and everywhere.
Although attempts were made by some people to get it terminated but the God that I worship did not allow this to happen.
  • Who are those people?
I wouldn’t want to talk about them. But I was attacked physically and spiritually. But thank God as He proved Himself to them.
  • Right now the baby is here, what is the relationship between you and Dino Melaye?
Relationship? Seriously, I wouldn’t want to talk about it. What is more important is that the baby is alive and I pray to God to give me long life to take good care of her. As I said earlier, she is a gift from God.
  • Since you don’t care about the baby’s father, how do you intend to raise the girl all alone?
Every mother has good plans for her child, but I don’t think you expect me to start revealing that on the pages of newspapers. I have good plans for her but this is between me and God. He has never disappointed me and I am sure He will not do that now. He has proved to me how mighty and wonderful He is. 
  • How have you been able to deal with bad press, and which one would you consider the worst?
The worst so far was the story by a soft sell magazine that I slept with a waiter in a hotel in the United States while I was on a visit to see my boyfriend. That story jolted me because as at that time of writing the story, I was still here in Lagos.
In fact, I haven’t obtained my US visa then, so I wondered the source of that story. Even my boyfriend too came to Nigeria to check my international passport, thinking that I came to the US without his knowledge.
  • Given your experience with Dino Melaye, do you still believe in love?
Why not? The fact that a man breaks your heart does not mean that you shouldn’t pick up the pieces and move on with your life. It won’t stop me from giving my heart to another man. I only need to be careful with the kind of man that I will open my heart to.

Femi Fani-Kayode Replies Senator Ahmed Sani Yerima & His Supporters

''If I had any doubts that the self-confessed pedophile Senator Ahmed Sani was of the devil before today, I have long since shed those doubts.  
Ahmed is not only evil but he is also a very sick man. In any civilized society, he would be either be behind bars or he would be in a mental hospital. 
 We as a people need to protect the girl-child from self-righteous sexual predators like him.  
He not only thrives on under-age sex and child rape but he boasts about it and seeks to

Senator Ahmed Yerima Replies His Critics

''Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage.  As a matter of fact, early marriage the solution to about half of our problems.  
For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and its not your business.  
This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind,

Selly Threatens To Sue Nando Over Her Giving Him STD Allegation #BBATheChase:

Ghanaian Big Brother Africa The Chase housemate Selly, while answering questions at a press conference in Accra revealed she may sue fellow housemate, Nando for defamation of character. 

When asked about Nando's claims that she gave him an STD, Selly said:
"Actually, my mum has threatened to take Nando on legally, which we have communicated to the BBA producers. 
Nando and I did not have sexual intercourse; we made out, yes! And that was as far as it went.  

I am only hearing all these things outside of the house because I didn’t know about it while I was in the house so I didn’t get a chance to defend myself.  
So for the STI allegations that he is making, I am just waiting for Nando to come out so I can ask him how he got the STI.   
I have been tested and I don’t have any background of STI or STD so  I don’t know how Nando contracted the disease that he claims he has.”
