Legendary Nigerian musician, 2Baba, has hit back at critics who have accused him of being a deadbeat dad.
The singer, who has seven children from three different women, said in a podcast interview that he is always hurt by the accusations, but that he has learned to ignore them.
“I get a lot of jabs. I got a lot of people that say stuff about me. People have trolled me severally on social media. And, sometimes it hurts. Sometimes some people will just go on social media to say rubbish. It’s just like terrorists bombing innocent people.
He also spoke on people questioning his parenting style saying, “Many people talk about kids, fatherhood, motherhood, all that whole circle. Many people talk about it with public opinion type of thinking. But it’s deeper than that. There’s nobody that has the exact blueprint for this thing.
The basic truth of the whole matter is the connection with you and your little ones [children]. There is so many different ways to find it. There’s no one rule or one particular way.
“I speak to my kids like say they be my mates. I don’t boss them around. I talk to them the way I talk to my friends and mom.
2Baba said that he is a good father to his children and that he provides for them financially and emotionally. He also said that he is always there for them, no matter what.
“And I will start wondering how till today, none of those critics the way they are concerned about my family come to assist in paying my children’s school fees. Not even a single soul.” he said.
2Baba’s comments come after he was recently involved in a public spat with his wife, Annie Macaulay-Idibia. The couple have been married since 2012 and have two children together.
In recent months, there have been reports of infidelity and allegations that 2Baba has been neglecting his family. 2Baba has denied the allegations, but the couple’s marriage has been put under strain.
Despite the challenges he is facing, 2Baba said that he is committed to his family and that he will continue to be a good father to his children.
