Maria Okan, a radio personality in Nigeria, has dispelled rumors that Olamide Adedeji, an Afropop musician and purported baby father, paid her 2 million naira to undergo an abortion in 2019.
It was claimed that after confronting Olamide about the pregnancy, Maria obtained N2 million from him for an abortion.
Three years after the brouhaha, the journalist made the headlines recently after she chronicled her life as a single mother in the UK in a short video currently making the rounds online.
Taking to her Instagram page, Maria shared a video where she recounted how she relocated to the UK from Nigeria while pregnant with her first child.
Maria also took to her Twitter handle to clear the air on alleged N2m for abortion, stating that no one gave her money to terminate her pregnancy.
”YOUR TROLLING COMMENTS, DEATH THREATS AND INSULTS ALL THESE YEARS HAVE MEANT NOTHING LOL. WE ARE DOING WELL, WE ARE HEALTHY, WE ARE MAKING MONEY AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO ELEVATE.
AND FOR THE RECORD, NO ONE GAVE ME ANY STINKING MONEY FOR AN ABORTION. AS A MOTHER, WHEN YOU CARRY A CHILD AND DELIVER HER BY THE GRACE OF GOD, YOU WILL KNOW HOW INSULTING THIS IS AND HAS BEEN.
AT THE TIME THOSE NONSENSE STORIES CAME OUT, I CHOSE TO FOCUS ON DELIVERING MY CHILD SINCE I HAD A HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY AND A FIBROID THAT PRACTICALLY EXPLODED A FEW MONTHS IN. BUT AS SHE IS SAFE AND SOUND NOW, THERE’S NO PRESSURE. WE THANK GOD”.
