Big Brother Naija star, Khafi has reacted after a lady left an unflattering comment about her son on her social media page.
The reatity TV star, who has not unveiled her son’s face since he was born few months ago, had revealed that someone made an insensitive comment about her child while participating in the ongoing #Nobodylikewoman challenge.
She had written, “Her baby must be ugly. That’s why she’s not showing his face”
However, many people did not believe that anyone could make such an insensitive comment about a child.
One ella_unbeatableify wrote, “Oga nobody said anything jor. Make una no dy post rubbish. Who will call small child ugly.. mtcheww”
Reacting to the comments, Khafi went to dig out the comment and shared the screenshot on her Instagram page.
She also called out the lady whose handle is @symplysharron and prayed for her, while noting that people need to be nicer because every word spoken has the power to shape one’s perspective about one’s self.
“For everyone who said I was lying or making up my previous post…
Women endure many unspeakable things and most times do so in silence. When they do share they get hit with labels like “attention seeker, liar” etc. We are so programmed to internalise hurt that when it is shared the hearer is more offended by the sharing than what actually happened. Regardless, I normally block and delete comments like this and keep it moving. But I’m guessing that is why @symplysimi started this challenge, because we shouldn’t have to. And if you feel offended by others sharing their truth, ask yourself why.
For Sharron who felt the need to say this, I pray no one says such about your children, born or unborn. My son is beautiful just like his Daddy and I hope my husband and I are able to raise our child in a way that he is so fortified in who he is in God that mean things like this don’t affect him, but not everyone is that fortunate. Wouldn’t it be easier if we were just nicer to each other? Every word shapes us, so I hope you’ll pick yours better in the future.”
See her post,
