“Any woman wey abandon innocent pikin is a rat mother with huge poverty mentality” – Emeka Ike



Veteran Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike last week said that “a mother is farrrrr different from ‘wife’.”

Emeka, whose marriage of 17 years to Suzanne was recently dissolved, made the comment in a reply to one of his followers on Instagram.

The Star actor took to his Instagram page today to further explain his statement.

He wrote; Yes!!! THERE ARE RAT MOTHERS n RAT FATHERS… no disrespect to REAL MOTHERS…we honor u. But any woman wey abandon innocent pikin for gutter, stream, litter bin, roadside, husbands house to remarry and make more rat kids, orphanage, church is a RAT MOTHER with huge poverty MENTALITY

    Something is seriously wrong with this man. He cannot take it that his ex wife CHOSE to leave him. Only God knows what she had seen that made her run away, even letting him take custody of the children.

    I sincerely hope his ex wife doesn’t go alone to see her children because a man like this can kill her.

    Any man that talks the way Emeka Ike does is a real rat! For crying out loud, she is the mother of your kids! You are actually a big fool for marrying her in the first place! Idiot oshi! A matured man will never talk carelessly the way you are doing right now! Why not learn from your wife? Think about your children!

    This man is sick.
    Plus he is buckling under the weight of caring for the kids. Sebi it’s easy. He should continue.

    BTW, I wonder the judge that gave him custody.

    When they mistreat their wives or cheat on them and the woman has the boldness to leave it drives them nuts. They are his children he needs to take care of them. When a man’s wife leaves him the shame is on him because it shows he is not man enough to take care and put his household in order.

      Who told u she abandoned them. You guys are soo quick to conclude on pples story. Please if someone refuses u to see ur kids or take them from u, wat will u do? U need to hear her own story to understand

      By abandonment he means she refused to take his beatings so she could be with her kids under his roof. I bet my life he makes it difficult for her to see her children and then he makes it seem like she ” abandoned ” them.

      “Motherhood is one kind of experience….”

      Why do people mysticize motherhood? Mothers can hype themselves ehn? It’s just funny to me.

      Buhahaha, someone would think they forced you all to open your legs and birth kids with the way you all rant about motherhood as if it’s any different from fatherhood. On second thought, Yetty maybe it’s because you all don’t have fathers in your kids lives or there were no fathers in your life growing up, hence the over glorification of motherhood…what do think…idi..ot!

    Question is would he have allowed her to leave with her kids. My guess is no. Would he allow her to visit her kids without trouble? Would she be safe? Judging from his every minute rantings and the fact that he seemed unwilling to let her go, my guess is no again. So then why is he calling her names.

    A woman who leaves or divorce her husband without taking her kids is not worthy to be called a mother. Don’t get me wrong oooo I’m not say women shouldn’t divorce their man ooo but a responsible mom will make plans for her kids fight to take them along even when it’s not favourable in court but we also have those selfish mom who care for nobody but them self I think that’s what Emeka Ike was trying to say

      April 20, 2017 at 8:21 am

      isn’t it pretty obvious that he wants to use this to blackmail her into staying? You have to be alive to be a mother and to be a sane mother, she had to leave Emeka Ike. He is their father, so he can take care of them as well.

    • Babe

      April 20, 2017 at 8:45 am

      I used to share the same opinion but now nooooooo. The man should take care of his kids and she has visiting rights and when they get older, they chose.
      Men keep abandoning kids and go about town gallivanting. If she wants to remarry, she should. If she wants to go out or hustle she can. Women love their kids no doubt but she has to be alive to love them.
      I and my husband are separated and is it tough? it is very very tough, but he doesn’t care about the kids or sends money for their upkeep. I do it all but not complaining cos I will choose them over and over again.

      The court granted Emeka custody of the kids and granted Suzanne unhindered access. Did she abandon her kids? No.

    • UmMahdiayh

      April 20, 2017 at 10:04 am

      Not all …some want to take their kids with them but law is not friendly for woman on divorce cases.. It is easier for her to takebher kids with her if the divorce was when the kids are young …or she deny him bin the father of her kids.At that she will he able to take custody of her kids…

      Pls respect her decision…. If she come die in his house na the same people like u will blame her for staying that long…

      In marital decision no one has the right to blame the other party for their decision.

      Madam, I shake my head for you o. I pray you don’t see what will make you run away from a marriage and your home stark naked because a woman, who can run from a marriage and leave 4 children behind, has obviously run out naked in fear of her life because she had no choice!!!

    You talk as if you were present in their lives…as if you know what happened?
    Don’t hide behind the safety of your computer to talk b****$h*t about another persons marriage especially where the marriage has weathered enough storm to last a lifetime.
    Would a sane person just walk out on a 17 year old relationship without any serious reason?

    Yoruba will say ‘yara lati gboro, lora lati fesi’ translation- (listen and digest very fast but, think before talking)

      You that you are writing do you know what transpired in their home. Temi is saying the truth, they are women who are not worthy to be called mothers am not talking about Emeka Ike and his wife palava. So let us be wise when talking after all we were not in their home to know what really transpired.

    • trudy

      April 20, 2017 at 10:10 am

      ray, im sorry to say this but you and temi are stupid. the court granted the father custody of the kids, and gave the mom unhindered access. Emeka is just complaining coz he cant go up and down with different babes cox of the kids. its his kids too… why is he complaining soo much ? after you spent years emotionally and physically abusing her you thought she would never leave your ass? lol…

    Who no go no go know. I m a living witness to this kind of situation. It happened in my family and my dad lived with it till he died. Emeka i m older than you and my advice is DO NOT transfer anger to the kids. For me, I m cool with my mom.

    And to think this is coming from an entertainer. Smh for Emeka Ike. I think your wife took the right step by walking out from the marriage. Cos obviously you are not a husband material based on your rant.

    Emeka Ike! It is such a shame that such a talented actor like yourself has allowed anger to reduce you to this. You sound like a mad man, go and check yourself. See a shrink maybe?
    Better still take responsibility for your actions in what led to the end of your marriage to Suzanne, ask for her forgiveness, learn to be civil towards her and be respectful to the mother of your children. Your kids see your actions and no doubt it affects them, be a better role model to them.

    Peacemaker is one of my favourite nollywood films. Most of the time you were the good guy in your movies. Turns out your actually the opposite in real life. I’m so disappointed.

    Rant over.

    I agree with Emeka, though, i wouldn’t use the same words, but he is right. There is a difference between giving birth and being a mother. Some women just give birth and use their children for their selfish gains(some dont even care, while some toil and labor just to make sure their children are ok, even when they are not. There are mothers, and then there are sweet mothers.

    Women raise their children all the time and no one raises an eyebrow, man does it once and we won’t hear word again.

    Shebi you did all sorts to brand her an unfit mother in order to get custody to punish her, why are you now complaining?
    The more you speak, the more we see why she left your abusive ass.
    As for those you insulting Susan, did Emeka tell you she was given custody of her children and she refused?
    He like many men, thought keeping the kids would manipulate/strongarm her into staying or at least punish her for leaving, but she’s a wise woman who knows that you can only be a mother when you’re alive.

    Emeka can no longer control her life and treat her however he likes and it’s driving him mad.
    Nothing abusers hate more than losing control over their victims.

    Emeka Ike sounds like your classic abuser. They beat and emotionally abuse their partners. When that doesn’t work they resort to verbal abuse, because for people like him it’s all about control & power. With the way family court works in nigeria I seriously doubt his wife “abandoned” her kids. Nigeria is such a patriarchal society that family & customary courts (mainly presided over by men) usually grant the man custody. My aunty worked on the courts and she’d tell us stories of men being given custody even when they can’t prove they can financially and physically take care of the children. In Emeka Ikes case I won’t be surprised if he bribed the judges to win custody…we all know how nigeria works. At the end of the day for someone like him it’s about control & power. This is the type of man that will kill his wife…

    Good thing she left, would have been better if she left with her kids. It’s unfair that the kids have to live with his bitterness. I hope he does not turn around and start treating them badly or get a woman who ll start maltreating them

    When he was fighting for full custody nko……U never start. Dis is just d Beginning…..I just pray the kids would be strong from the inside!
