      You’re afterall African. Coded in everything you do, even to the point of harming yourself. In Eku’s case, if she hid her business in the first place, we all would have no idea who she is. It’s a tad hypocritical I think. However, I respect her choice to draw the line on certain things. All the Kardashian (reality star) wannabes that can’t take the heat when it comes to it. Kardashians will invite cameras into the Labour Room sef if possible.

    You were born in wedlock is not of your doing. Eku’s child is not here and is clearly already adored by the father. I’d rather that than a so called “father” in marriage that lets the mother pay for everything and do all the raising. Hope your own children will be able to say the same in the future as you are not God and as He loves all children,this comment was SOOOOOOO (x10) unnecessary

      It’s people like you that remain in bad marriages to save face.

      1: They dont put the cart before the ? for obvious reasons. Obvious to anyone whose got half a brain cell.
      2: if you got half a brain cell you kinda dont qualify as any kinda role model.

    Most people calling the child names are obviously in an unhappy state currently bcos u can only give what u have. Marriage has never guaranteed happiness, always keep that in mind. Companionship,truth and openness to one another brings more joy than marriage. Mind you a lot of us are just conforming to societal standards hence the by force marriage. Mind you, marriage is a good thing but u need not b that vile… too much meanness

    • Dolly

      October 30, 2016 at 12:06 pm

      I am married. My two sisters got married before me my parents are happily married. I have noting but good to say about marriage. True some people have horrible marriage experiences that the only solution is divorce. But when marriage works it’s an amazing experience for the couple and children involved. I’ve been married 22 years and counting. If you are in an abusive relationship get out of it ASAP don’t Watch as any of your children is getting abused. Just one episode is enough. Also look before you leap. Date for at least befriend before marriage. Bad doesn’t hid it will come out whilst you are dating.

But you are here judging a couple, championing a derogatory term for a baby that is result of the same activities that you have self-confessed to. Can you see why I’ll assume that you’re IQ is not high? One day, your own will enter.

    Na wa for this generation. Odogwu is posting a picture on IG and some people think its cute. What is cute would be to marry the mother and for Eku not to have gambled like this. She is a correct girl from a good home. She is exposed so why the unplanned pregnancy? I truly commend them for not terminating but this is annoying. If you can publicly date someone and get pregnant but he doesn’t propose there is a big problem. Its like, thanks for the kid but you can go. Its happening too much these days. Odogwu, man up.

    • mz_danielz

      October 31, 2016 at 2:47 pm

      What if she wanted the child without the marriage. What if she just wants a loving partner with a child out of it. He might have her and the children covered in his documents and will (if any). What if that is what she wants.

      Let’s stop with this don’t open legs till he puts a ring. Some girls want marriage ( that’s fine), some a loving and stable relationship and some a f****ng orgasm. A correct person should be based on how you behave relative to the world around you, not whether or not you close your legs.

    • J

      October 31, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      How certain are you that this pregnancy is unplanned, I personally would start having kids once I’m financially ready (because my ovaries are …) In my awesome opinion, marriage is quite unnecessary, except maybe for legal reasons. Nigerians would die on-top someone else deciding to do things their own way. And yes I do not want to get married, everyone has a right to decide how to go about their lives, at least to the extent to which we are capable as humans.

  29. Say the truth

    October 30, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    So disappointed in Eku. So after all her grammar in Ndani Real Talk “What Women Want”, she gets pregnant for a man who has not married her.

    I know he will eventually marry her but will women ever learn? Some men demand you get pregnant first and give birth before any commitment. Do you know why? Because they want the assurance that you are not barren or someone with fertility issues. What does that say about his love for you? It is dependent on fertility. If you are only able to have that one child perhaps because for secondary infertility or other circumstances, that man will not think twice before impregnating someone else and throwing you out of his life.

    Yes, it’s true that having children in wedlock does not guarantee a happy marriage. Yes, it’s true that there are couples who had kids before getting married and they are very happy. However, it does not change the fact that what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong.

    The saddest part is that both Eku and Chino would most likely claim to be Christians. Yet, they openly flaunt disregarding God’s requirement as set out in the bible.

    Let God be found true even though every man be found a liar

    October 30, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    One of those things I would really love to ask God is the ability not to judge people based on whatever situations I think they did right or wrong. As I read through the comments, all I could do was put myself into Eku’s shoes reading through all the comments herself. The comments hurts so bad and I’m not even Eku. Please let’s all try to be nice people even though most of us are anonymously typing from wherever. Eku is an adult and m sure she knows what’s right or wrong. Whichever path she has chosen, m also sure she can handle responsibly. She doesn’t need such negative comments on her child or relationship from strangers without regards for the feelings of others. Most of us are not perfect ourselves even if we can weigh our shortcomings as light compared to others. *ignore errors* BTW…congrats Eku!

    God doesn’t take the issue of children out of wedlock lightly and neither should we but as Christ said let he without sin cast the first stone. My sins are plenty. I don’t have the right to call people and babies names but I do find situations like this annoying. It used to be that if pregnancy came from sex with a random chick the guy would distance himself from the girl. That’s terrible but more logical than this new style of dating the person, being on good terms, wanting the baby but refusing to commit. If she’s good enough to be seen everywhere with you and you’re happy to be a father then why not just marry? I now see people with a kid still doing boyfriend and girlfriend, not breaking up but not getting married or even engaged!

    • chichi

      November 18, 2016 at 1:35 am

      Na wa for you @josephine I am assuming you are 12 years old with your comment. So according to you the guy disappearing when he impregnates a girl is better than staying to do boyfriend and girlfriend for the sake of that child. Wow! I will let you think about why your type of comment stops our country from developing. You’re coming from the mindset of what it looks like to everyone else (society) rather than giving that child a mum and dad regardless of marriage. Marriage can come at any time but a mum and dad being with you and loving you is priceless.

  35. Josephine

    October 30, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    Hey BN, you lost my other comment? To paraphrase, this is in the Old Testament. God doesn’t want kids being born out of wedlock. He is loves order and not lawlessness. But we are all sinners. These kids are blessings and precious as those whose parents are married so no name-calling. Many don’t have the guts to face criticism and will abort. Kudos to the strong ones who don’t. Do you know how your future grand-kids will be conceived? My issue is that before if a random chick got pregnant a guy might distance himself. Now even if its a steady girlfriend they are happy to be seen with and want the baby they still distance themselves. I see people with a kid still doing boyfriend and girlfriend. Why not just marry?

  36. Friday's other child

    October 30, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    An alternative view on commitment; there’s something (to my mind) that’s incredibly powerful about two consenting adults choosing to commit to each other without being married. To my mind that means that every day they are together it is because they are choosing to do so; when it is so much easier to walk away.

    Staying together without being married is more difficult than doing so when you are married. You could argue that in some circumstances it is a truer sign of genuine commitment.

    Giving someone the freedom to leave without the lengthy process of a divorce is something that a lot of people are too afraid to do.

    This has nothing to do with the couple in the article, it’s just a general comment about relationships.

    People can be very hypocritical, amazingly so. So, all the people with bad things to say do not know of anyone who had a baby before marriage? Not one? I’d also like to assume that all the commenters are celibate or were celibate while single? I wouldn’t bet on that.

    I’m just really surprised because comments in the BN community are supposed to be much better than this.

    Eku doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. She doesn’t have to “perform pregnancy” on social media, just because she is a celebrity. While she posts her outfits and stuff, she has never been one to actually put her private life out and even if she was? It’s her life. What she shares is her business, not yours.

    Not that her life is affected by anything said here, for or against, anyway. Congratulations to her and Chini!

    Congratulations to the couple! I must say some comments on here make me sick, I can’t even pick on one as there are many. Loving parents married or not means everything. This is there life and that child will never know he/she is born out of wedlock till there is a break up of their relationship.The child will know when mum and dad are fighting each other, ignoring each other and basically loveless in marriage or not. Raising kids is hard work, shout out to all parents single and married. And pray you’re not in a marriage or partnership where you are raising the kids as single because one parent doesn’t see them enough, guide them or contribute financially, That is not life! Worse thing is I bet a lot of the ill comments come from people frustrated in their marriages and jealous because they didn’t make decisions in their life they’re happy with.

    Just live your life, guide people in what you believe is right. This moment of new life probably means everything to them, no point shouting about what could never now be. You can’t undo having a child out of wedlock.
