Being a single mother damages a woman – Actress Bimpe Akintunde

Nollywood actress, Bimpe Akintunde has stated that being a single mother damages a woman.

The actress, in a recent interview, shared the journey of how she had her child and addressed the challenges of being a single mother.

According to Akintunde, it is improper for a man to impregnate a woman and not take responsibility or be part of the family.

“I keep telling people that being a single mom is not what anyone prays for; there is nothing that kills a woman faster than single parenting. Recently, a lot of people don’t care; we have surrogate mothers, they won’t even show you their husband, they will just show you their child.

I’m thankful for my journey because if I hadn’t given birth 8 years ago, I may be single and childless. Any man that puts a child in a woman must take responsibility even if you’re drunk while doing it.”

She further highlighted how she struggled all by herself to raise her child alone, sold her car and still could not cope while her baby daddy had yet to claim the child.

Bimpe revealed that she had to seek public help as a single mother from a foundation when she won relief items that helped her through.

“If not for families, siblings, and others, I wouldn’t have scaled through that phase,” she added.

“Every single mother out there, don’t give up on yourself, and your baby. As a single mother, your child’s future lies in your hands. Even if you separate from your partner, take your child with you.”
