Radio and TV guru Caroline Sampson has appealed to every Ghanaian to stop disrespecting baby mamas, especially if they have no idea about their stories.
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, a ‘baby mama’ is the mother of a man’s biological child, especially one she hasn’t been engaged to or in a long-term, intimate relationship with the child’s dad.
According to Caroline, who has an eight-year-old son, everyone wants to insult a baby mama and call her names without even finding out the circumstances that led to her being in that situation.
“I used to worry a lot when I was called names because those commenting did not know the real story as to how I had my child. And it is hurtful for someone to say very bad things about you when you know very well what is being said about you is not the truth,” she said in an interview with the media
Caroline said before anyone come at a baby mama, they should have the right information and also take into consideration to be in the shoe of the recipient to whom such comment is driven at.
“I know some people talk loosely because they see one or two baby mummies doing just anything to take care of themselves and their baby but if you are not in their shoes, you cannot tell them how to walk”
“Everyone has their hustle so people should not attack us because we have kids. Having a child out of wedlock is not the end of the world and we are not lesser women””
“What about those in the church always praying to God to have babies? It’s quite unfortunate some of the men who impregnate the women have children elsewhere, but they don’t call them born-one,” she stated.
Being an example herself, She indicated that it wouldn’t be fair for anyone to think that she made her money through unacceptable means, giving clarification that she worked hard to secure a better end for her ward.
“There are a lot of single mothers out there who are making it big time on their own to cater for their children. Not all baby mummies are lazy and do anything for money,” she said.
Caroline, who is the host of Shouts On Y on YFM, a radio station in Ghana said men were the least of her worries right now, revealing that she has dedicated her time to work and family.
