Being a single mother, or having a child out of wedlock, or being a Babymama, as they call unmarried women now, is not a strange phenomenon in Nigeria, or anywhere else in the world. But it turns worrisome when it is becoming a trend and even a fad as we have in our entertainment industry today.
It is so common nowadays to hear of an actress having a baby with no father in the picture. No doubt, Nigeria’s movie industry called Nollywood is a haven of beautiful women. Women, so adorable and desirable not to have been taken, for keeps, but the reverse are the case.
Some will argue it is not a Nollywood thing, yes, it is everywhere but our movie damsels are the ones in the limelight and thus should take centre stage.
