The businessman took to his Instagram page to post photos of their son, Olajuwon’s birthday, showering him with prayers as he clocks 14.

However, he accused Mercy Aigbe of doing everything in her power to deprive him of being in the boy’s life while emphasizing his stance as his father.

“Happy birthday to my dear son Olajuwon Gentry, no matter how your mother try to take you away from me, I still remain your father and am happy you are growing up to understand that I remain your father and to come back to me to ask for anything without your mother asking by herself. I cherish you, my son, a long life to you and me as your father,” he wrote.

Many have since criticised Lanre Gentry for his approach, condemning him for using their son’s birthday to diss his ex-wife.

I am sure your son will not be happy seeing this because internet don’t forget, she has moved on and I am sure you have too. Please allow peace to reign for the sake of the child. Happy birthday J1, your days shall be long in good health.”

diddyberry84 noted: “I wonder what’s wrong with the post. Mercy has re-married. Why can’t she give her ex-husband access to his son? You people should for once feel for men too.”

mhiz_blair_ opined: “Mr Gentry rest in JESUS name 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 wish your son a happy birthday and leave his mother alone 😂😂😂 when you were abusing her, you didn’t know that the mother will take him away 🤦‍♀️.”

arewawilly stated: “No be your handwriting be this sir.. Baba leave the mother alone. Everyone has moved on.”

The public has been quick to react to Lanre Gentry’s comments, with many condemning his decision to bring personal issues into a birthday message for his son. Social media users have expressed their displeasure at how the celebratory occasion was overshadowed by the feud between the former couple. Critics have urged both parents to prioritize their son’s well-being and to keep their disagreements private to maintain peace and harmony.

Despite the backlash, some individuals defended Gentry, arguing that he has a right to voice his grievances and seek a closer relationship with his son. They believe that Mercy Aigbe should allow Gentry more access to their child, especially considering her remarriage.

The situation highlights the complexities of co-parenting after a separation, especially when both parties are public figures. It underscores the importance of handling such matters with sensitivity and discretion to avoid public disputes and ensure the emotional well-being of the child involved.

As Olajuwon celebrates his 14th birthday, it is hoped that both parents can find a way to resolve their differences amicably, allowing their son to enjoy his special day without the shadow of their conflicts.
