Omawumi, Nigeria Music Diva Responds Critics over Paternity of her Child

Omawumi, Nigeria Music Diva Responds Critics over Paternity of her Child chiomaandy.com

She is that lovely and mesmerising voice you hear on your radio set and probably as one of your hit list in your mobile phone. She got pregnant some time in 2011 and has been a single mother till date.Though her fans love her voice and are crazy about her, some could not hide their curiosity over the father of her baby.

In an interview with Thisday Entertainment contributor, Seun Apara, she opened up her real relationship with her baby's father and why she does not want to reveal the name and more... Excerpts  
Omawumi
I never hid my child's paternity but I felt that since I'm not married, I don't need to come out and say this is the father of my child. It is always ideal for someone who wants to marry you to be the one to identify himself. Another thing is that he might not want to identify himself because he is not an artiste. He might not want that part of my life. He might just love me and my child. So I like to respect people's privacy.
I also strongly feel that it is my job as a musician to entertain you and if you feel like my personal life is your business, it doesn't mean I feel the same way.

Initially when I got pregnant, I didn't feel the need to come out and start telling people that this is the father of my child. I didn't feel I owed it to anyone.
My family and my close friends know who the father of my child is because we’re in a relationship. We have a very healthy relationship and our families are intertwined. I don't think I need to start telling people all this.

I felt so bad about the stories people are writing about my child's paternity because normally, controversies don't get to me and my daughter don’t have to be part of this. So when people start putting that kind of stuffs in print and my daughter stumbles upon it when she is old enough to read, it will hurt her.

Considering the kind of upbringing I had, I'm not that morally bankrupt that I will now fraternize with a married man that is like a father figure to me.

You want to reveal his identity?
I don't feel that will be necessary. I just want to use this opportunity to tell people that I will try as much as possible to be a normal artiste and I want to encourage people to try and enjoy my music. It’s not easy but they should just try not to be concerned about my private life. They should know that I'm a human being and they should try to understand that I tried to be a person that people can look up to.
