Rather than getting angry, reality star, Khafi, on Wednesday got philosophical and prayerful over a comment that suggests her son is ugly.
She had the son in August, with Gedoni, whom she met in the Big Brother Naija house.
Perhaps because she chose not to display the face of the child online, the one said she must behiding his ugliness.
In response, however, she situated the hurt in the types that women suffer, while also praying that the attack would not be the abuser’s portion.
She noted in the IG message:
“For everyone who said I was lying or making up my previous post. Women endure many unspeakable things and most times do so in silence. When they do share they get hit with labels like “attention seeker, liar.
“We are so programmed to internalise hurt that when it is shared the hearer is more offended by the sharing than what actually happened.
“Regardless, I normally block and delete comments like this and keep it moving. But I’m guessing that is why @symplysimi started this challenge because we shouldn’t have to. And if you feel offended by others sharing their truth, ask yourself why.”
Referring to the troll, Khafi said, “For Sharron who felt the need to say this, I pray no one says such about your children, born or unborn.
“My son is beautiful just like his Daddy and I hope my husband and I are able to raise our child in a way that he is so fortified in who he is in God; that means things like this don’t affect him, but not everyone is that fortunate.
“Wouldn’t it be easier if we were just nicer to each other? Every word shapes us, so I hope you’ll pick yours better in the future.”
Khafi was a police officer in the UK when she participated in the BBNiaj show.
