Gone are the days when women used to be ashamed of getting pregnant for men who fail to marry them. You can walk out of the relationship with your head up high if it's not working, and go on to become a celebrity by sharing your romantic travails on social media. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade!
Our men are doing wonders in secret and the results after 9 months have been evident. The women that have made this list are not only beautiful and classy but their names easily resonate among the regular social media users in Nigeria.
Let's take a walk together as I share the names of some influential baby-mamas in Nigeria with you.
(1) Linda Ikeji:
For years, the whole world made speculations about that man with two heads who was manning Aunty Linda's duty post but they never figured out. Aunty Linda,39, is not only beautiful and tall, but she is also stupendously rich, powerful and intelligent. The high pedestal she placed herself on must have militated against her chances of getting a man of her own. She later fell pregnant for an oil mogul, Jeremi Sholaye who dialogued with his legs after blowing up the 'other room' like a terrorist. Since then, Linda Ikeji has moved on with life parading her handsome boy all around the world.
(2) Benedicta Elechi aka Tastebudz
The 41-year old woman is the brain behind the vibrant nature of the controversial OAP and social activist, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze. She is a talented cook who has been fueling his tummy with her exotic meals regularly displayed by him on his social media pages. Benedicta Elechi has a son for Daddy Freeze while she is still locked in a divorce proceeding with her former husband whom she has three children with. Benedicta Elechi is a very beautiful and intelligent woman whose business has been growing rapidly with her man's influence.
(3) Chioma Avril Rowland:
Chioma, a former student of Economics who Davido claims to be a talented cook dropped out of Babcock University last year to focus on her romance with the superstar singer. That was a huge sacrifice which many criticized but it seems to have finally paid off. Davido instantly gave her fame and possibly money. He made a song in her name and gifted her a multi-million naira Porsche car which she never drove. The duo recently welcomed a male child together but are yet to exchange marital vows. This might not be far from the fact that Davido has two other baby-mamas. Chioma remains a very beautiful, calm and popular young girl and the bloggers never fail to post her pictures for traffic.
(4) Precious Chikwendu (Femi Fani Kayode's wife):
The elegant woman with the kind of bright skin that could illuminate a dark room is hardly in the news but her man, Femi Fani Kayode sleeps and wakes up online. From the look of things, you might even think he works for 'Twitter Nigeria'. Precious Chikwendu is a beauty pageant titleholder from Awka, Anambra State. She is a model and a Nollywood actress. Fani and she have four children together but the politician is yet to walk down the aisle with her officially. Even though some mainstream media platforms refer to Precious aka Snow White as 'Fani's wife', there is no record of their marriage ceremony anywhere. The 30-year-old remains of the hottest baby-mamas in the country with strong connections in high places.
(5) Sophia Momodu
Davido's stardom appears to be sexually-transmitted. He got involved with Chioma and Sophia Momodu and they became public figures. This reminds us of the romance between American singer Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran which the latter benefited immensely from. Sophia appears to be globetrotting around countries with no known means of livelihood. She has been posting so much sultry pictures on Instagram and the blogs have been pushing them for her. Davido revealed in 2015 during a fracas between them that she placed Sophia on a huge monthly salary for being his baby-mama.
(6) Ogudu Oluwanishola:
Shola is Wizkid’s first baby-mama; she was dating the singer before she got pregnant and had a son for him, Boluwatife. If you think she isn't influential, wait for her to call out Wizkid and the singer will feel the heat wherever he is in the world. She regularly shades him on social media when he starts to fail in his responsibilities as a father. She recently jetted out to Dubai to attend some strategic social gatherings with other celebrities. She has remained a force to be reckoned with in the league of baby-mamas.
Tokunbo Idowu aka TBoss of the Big Brother Naija 2017 fame is one of the new entrants into the 'Nigerian Association of Baby-mamas'. She dramatically got pregnant from nowhere like someone who got infected by flu. Till date, we are still investigating the brain behind the pregnancy and she isn't ready to share with us. TBoss, a controversial character linked with numerous men has featured in movies and numerous modelling projects. She exercised her influence recently when she condemned the manner Davido treated the girls who accused him of impregnating one of them.
Saidat Avala Balogun has a 5-year-old daughter she had with an unnamed man. The musician and reality star gained fame from the Big Brother Naija 2019 edition which she left technically faster than she came in. The 26-year-old spent much of her life in the U.S. For those who admire dark-skinned women with curves, Avala with her tattooed skin could be your taste. She is being patronized by a couple of commercial brands in Nigeria. Avala has also being actively engaged in some petty projects and thousands of people actually love her.
Other celebrity baby-mamas are Lola Rae (Tekno), Waje, Genevieve Nnaji, Anna Banner Ebiere (Flavour Nabania), Sandra Okagbue (Flavour Nabania), and Sandra Iheuwa. The majority of those on this second batch list have been shying away from media attention in recent times to focus on the real task of motherhood.
