Investigative journalist, Dr Kemi Olunloyo has revealed her son’s father, Babatunde Ogunade practically destroyed her life while she struggled to raise her baby and never reached out to her before reuniting with his son after 34 years.
The9jafresh recalls that Kemi Olunloyo broke down in tears when Babatunde, the Vice President of Nigeria Basketball Federation and former Lagos State Chairman of a female basketball team D’TIGERS reunited with his child last month.
According to her, Babatunde had concocted a lie to their son in his favour, stating she stopped him from seeing his son, meanwhile he rejected her when she got pregnant and forced her to struggle on her own as a single mum despite her son’s autistic condition then
Presently, her son despised and no longer talk to her because of the fake revelation.
However, she excelled victoriously with the help of lecturers and classmates who babysat her baby in the University. During those times, she could not live the life of a vibrant young lady because of her baby.
In her words;
MY 34yo Asperger’s SON NO LONGER SPEAKS TO ME
The source of my ongoing anxiety. My oldest son’s father has never reached out to me before going to reunite with him in America. Enitan says his father Mr Babs Ogunade VP Nigerian Basketball Federation told him I kept him away when in fact we were abandoned, denied and owed $102,000 (N51M) child support from Feb 1987-2005. My son says he thought his father was DEAD before he was born and was told by Mr Ogunade that I prevented him from knowing his father. Meanwhile I suffered raising a violent autistic child who has now left that spectrum and is high functioning but still can’t process many facts of life.
May God forgive you Babatunde. You destroyed my life. I never had a life between 22yo and 45yo. No parties, clubs, vacations etc what young people do in University. I was raising a baby lecturers held while I was taking exams. Other students babysat for me, sometimes I took the child on his carrier to class and still managed to get a first class degree. So much pain you put me through. Your mother who stood by you throughout is watching me vindicated now. You fathered a child with me and called me a one night stand but never knew tomorrow. Now you turned my son against me.
Thank you. You now have each other.
