Nigerian singer, Simisola Ogunleye shared a heartfelt message on twitter recently. One that every parent can relate to.
As you know, she's married to Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold. They had a secret wedding in January 2019. The following year the celebrity couple welcomed Adejare Kosoko, their first child, in May 2020.
Their daughter is fondly referred to as Deja.
The Duduke songstress related her fears about being a mother to a girl child in a tweet some hours ago.
"Having a daughter has made me so vulnerable. I want her to never be hurt, sad, insecure, in pain, confused or afraid. The fact I won't always be able to control these things has made me the most vulnerable I've ever been in my life"
This is the first time Simi has been very frank about her motherhood journey, and most fans appreciated this rare show of vulnerability displayed by a celebrity.
However, it's common for most parents to look out for their kids and if possible want to be everywhere with them, to shield them from potential harm.
But it's important that while parents like Simi have such deep concerns for their kids, they shouldn't kill themselves with worry.
The kids themselves while growing up will figure out many things on their own. And learn vital lessons from both the good and bad things life throws at them.
Kudos to Simi for making several Nigerian parents feel they're experiencing the challenges of parenthood alone.
