Media personality, Maria Okan has spoken about raising her daughter alone.
Recall that the child is rumoured to belong to singer, Olamide.
Three years ago, the OAP welcomed a baby girl and many believed that the child which she named Asaiah Monifé Maria Okanrende, is for her rumored ex, rapper Olamide.
It was reported in some quarters that Olamide allegedly gave Maria some money to terminate the pregnancy after she informed him, because he didn’t want problems with his partner, Adebukunmi.
On Monday September 5, Maria took to her Twitter handle to clear the air on this rumour, stating that no one gave her money to procure an abortion. She wrote;
”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”
She also shared a video in which she revealed that she has been solely responsible for Monife’s upkeep. Maria said she was halfway through her high-risk pregnancy when she discovered she would be raising her child alone. She said she relocated to the UK, started her career from scratch and is today a producer and presenter.
