Reality has hit former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tokunbo Idowu, aka Tboss, as she speaks on her life as a single mother.
On Father’s Day, Tboss was among the many women who wished themselves well for playing the role of fathers to their wards.
In a post shared on Instagram, the mother of one said she never envisioned being a mother without marriage.
She wrote: “If anybody had told me that I would get to this age and not married, I would have rebuked them. I was the girl that always imagined being a wife & mother. I have literally never envisioned my wedding day except that it would be nice to have it done on a beach without shoes on and I would like to have my natural hair- no weaves nothing. Just us both, close family & loved ones.
”Y’all can’t even imagine how much I have given to my relationships. I gave till I had nothing left for myself. I have been heartbroken too many times and yet I never gave up on love.
“But Alas, life had other plans for me.
I’m a single mother. I laugh when I see some of the comments about how I make motherhood look so sweet and I get lots of dms about ladies wanting to have kids because of my portrayal of Motherhood. Thanks. I’m flattered .
“However it is HARD- Last night I was up begging & screaming at my daughter to go to sleep at 4:30am. The night before it was 5:30, the one before that was 5:am- She just wasn’t having it. I don’t get a chance to do my own stuff, I can’t get a moment to shave my armpits or have a proper convo with my friends because lil mama is gonna cook her teddy bear in the middle of the living room, taking a sh*t in private is luxury.
“My body’s changed tremendously, I’m loosing hair, my eyes are puffy and blank and sunken. I can’t afford to have off-days because my mood would affect hers. Days when she’s under the weather- I loose sleep so badly that I break down as soon as she gets better. Pampers, wipes, baby food, clothes, cosmetics ain’t cheap. Constantly wondering if I’m doing the right thing? Constantly thinking about her future.
”Constantly looking out for opportunities to invest for her, loosing money- Last week I lost so much money I’m yet to break down from that one and yet every single day I get up- grumpily sometimes but I show up for my daughter. I do it for her regardless of my emotions. You know why? Because she didn’t ask to be here. I made the decision to have her and I will see this journey blossom till I draw my last breath.”
Till today, the reality star has never spoken about her baby daddy neither does the public know the his identity.
Next Rated reality show to debut soon
Plans have been concluded for the debut edition of the Next Rated reality television.
The Project Coordinator of the TV show, Emmanuel Enero, in a statement, said the aim of the show was to create opportunities for emerging young talents in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
He stated that 24 contestants would be selected from four different regions that include Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Owerri, and other African countries.
Enero said: “Only one winner will emerge, and this winner must be talented. The 24 contestants will be camped in a house for a period of 6 weeks, they will undergo series of tasks in the various entertainment categories, their intellectual and physical strength will be checked, behavioral attitudes will also be checked through their relationship with other housemates, and their tolerance for each other. We expect the atmosphere to be a bit tensed especially in the group tasks.”
