“For Parents Only. About 4yrs ago, my last Princess of the house called me from America, from her tone I was bracing up for whatever she was about to tell me especially when she kept saying to me, “daddy promise me you won’t get mad at me, or give up on me”

“I am close with my children and I love dem to bits. They are my friend. But I wasn’t really ready for the “breaking news” my Princess Dewy had for me.

“When my child told me she is gay, a lesbian, I experienced a range of emotions, during dat phone conversation.

“So many things went through my mind, one of them included self-blame (“Did I do something wrong?”) (“The child I thought I knew and loved no longer exists.”), worry (“Will my child be discriminated against?) religious confusion (“Is my child damned to spend eternity in hell?”), and stigma (“What will people think of my child? Of me?”).

“However, I kept pinching myself to calm down because I didn’t want my baby to shy away from me or for us to have a strained relationship. I loved my baby far too much.

“I first took a deep breath. And all I could say was, “are you sure?” I was hoping it was a prank but it was happening in real time. Even though I was unusually calm through that conversation, my mind was wondering in all direction.

“Months before this incident, I was lending my voice in support of LGTB rights in Nigeria. Is life playing tricks on me. Now my daughter is gay, why do I feel disappointed? Am I a hypocrite? How do I handle this bomb shell?

  1. There is always room for reconciliation no matter what, public announcement can not and never can be the solution nor solve it. We need humility and understanding to brake through challenges like these, A brave father is that father who take a step of peace towards his offspring, I mean here that as a father we should understood that our children can never be 100% perfect accept for the grace of God, we have a statutory responsibilities of letting them out of the wrong path instead of striving with them. Daughter, life is good, life is sweet, life is essential but life without pillars is like a house without a cover which exposes it’s inhabitants to all sorts of danger like rain, cold, sun, creeping insects etc. Your father deserves a respect in all ramifications and you must listing to your fathers advice, filter his words extract and accimmilate them for your better tomorrow.
    My final advice: father call your daughter and sink these issues so that your images will be boosted.
    Thanks.
