Over the weekend MBGN 2013 Anna Ebiere and her fans had a bit of an exchange after she posted something on Instagram that a few of them thought was directed at her ex-boyfriend and father of her daughter, Flavour.
In this exclusive interview with SDK, Anna Ebiere opens up on what she has been up to, the fact that she is no longer with Flavour, his relationship with Sandra Okagbue and much more.
See excerpts below.
On her relationship with Flavour and a recent Instagram post: First of all, Flavour and I are no longer together. Secondly, my post has/had nothing to do with Flavour. It was just a beautiful write up that made sense to me and I decided to share it with my fans. Yes we are no longer together. I made this decision recently. I spoke to myself and decided it was time to move on and focus on my future and career…we are both cool with it.
On having a baby with Flavour: I never decided to become a baby mama, I just fell in love. I fell in love and got pregnant unexpectedly for the man I loved. I had never gotten pregnant before and I was scared of abortion. I decided to keep my baby no matter what, I never tried to hold a man down or force marriage on anyone with my pregnancy. You know in life, the hardest decisions always turn out beautiful. I don’t regret keeping my baby one bit. She is my greatest achievement in life so far. I fall in love with her every second of the day.
On if she knew Sandra Okagbue was in the picture before getting with Flavour: I never knew Flavour was with another woman while we were dating. We started dating way before Golibe was composed. He never mentioned/admitted he had any relationship ties with anyone even after rumour had it that he was dating someone else and she was even pregnant for him. I believed him. I confronted him again when I heard she had put to bed and it seemed true. He accepted after much talk but unfortunately i was already pregnant, never knew i was pregnant until i was one month gone. What was I supposed to do? Take out my precious child? Hell no. I believe God sent her to me for a reason. So you see, it was never my intention to break anybody’s relationship or come in between two lovers. I just never knew. For those of you out there judging and persecuting me for something you know nothing about, let me ask, Are you better than I am? Is it okay by God for you to judge me when he has forgiven me all my sins? I made an adult decision at a young age and i am so proud of myself for keeping my baby. People always say i am competing/fighting with someone all because of a man. Really? Fighting and competing? That’s too much energy. Seeking for a man’s attention is never/has never been my thing! I’m not done seeking for God and my daughter’s attention. People always refer to me as “husband snatcher” but please, that is not the case. Many of have been victims of love and I am sure we all know that when a woman is deeply in love, she believes everything her man tells her. I am not a husband snatcher, I was just naive of a lot of things and everyday I ask God to give me wisdom to see well and make the right choices.
On returning to school: Yes, I plan to go back to School and I plan on a whole lot of things. I won’t say my getting pregnant put a setback in my plans because my baby is the best thing that ever happened to me but i have plans to return to school soon. The future is bright for me…
On granting the interview and not minding the possible backlash: My mind is free…Love is pain but there is a limit to pain and I choose to walk free.
