Actor, Gideon Okeke has shared a cryptic post about single mothers who who prevent their kids from having a relationship with their fathers just a few months after his divorce from ex-wife, Chidera.
Recall on October 23, 2022, Gideon announced his separation from his wife of four years.
Taking to Instastories hours ago, the Thespian said it was after he went public with his divorce from his ex-wife and mother of his two sons that he realized that so many men were being punished by their exes by preventing them from having a relationship with their kids.
Addressing single mums, Gideon asked them to remember they did not pluck their kids from trees or buy them from the shelves. He asked why are they using their kids to punish their exes, while insisting that it is the kids that are being punished and denied from having access to “Vitamin Daddy”. Gideon Okeke wrote:
“It’s on the announcement of My Seperation/ Divorce that I realized that so many men are going through and enduring a litany of ills as an offshoot of a failed marriage, leaving the kids in tow, as Victims.
My DM has messages to boot.
But I NEED to ask… What Therapy is reserved or advised for Men who find themselves backed up in this corner?
Is speaking up a “shame thing”?
Does WORK or the advice of going back to WORK really douse the pain? Kids are definitely a “mumu button” to the Man who has NOT abandoned his kids and his responsibilities to them. Suddenly all your are good enough for, is FEES. But your seeds still lack their vitamin DADDY! DAMN !!!
Be HUMANE! Be HUMANE !! Be HUMANE !!!
If you REALLY love them like you claim…Give them what they NEED.
Be HUMANE! Be HUMANE !!
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU ANYMORE
Dear single Mother, You didn’t pluck those kids from the trees. You didn’t buy them off the shelves at Shoprite. It took 2 of you, in love, to have the privilege of the legacy of Kids, in your life. People go a whole lifetime without this blessings you have on your laps. They are a gift from God. Being an ONLY child myself.. I can tell U what women go through to find this gift… or free…by God’s grace. Why you con Dey use this same gift take Dey punish another Man. Or so you thought you were punishing Him. But no! It’s the KIDS Get out of the Way. You’re in the way of Your kids emotional balance. You’re in the way!.”
Moments after he shared the post, Chidera took to her Instastory to share a cryptic post that appears to be a reaction to her ex-husband.
She accused Gideon of playing the victim when he is largely at fault, adding that she has a lot to say about him but would rather be the bigger person and let it slide. The mother of two wrote:
“If I start to talk! Hmmmmm.. There will be no holding back.
Because the millipede that was stomped on did not scream, but the foot that stomped on it keeps screaming “my foot, my foot”(it’s sweeter in Igbo sha, but, you get the gist lol).
But my people say that, “Adiro ibuo ayi ala”, so I’ll be the bigger person, as ALWAYS and keep living life”
