A Twitter user, @Imoteda has told a heartwarming yet hilarious story about how she got pregnant while in the university.
According to her, her father immediately disowned as soon as he heard she had gotten pregnant but things changed afterwards.
Read her narration below
Left my house cause the internet told me stores open at 7:30 am. The internet lies.
But since I’m here and it’s Father’s Day let me tell you how my dad disowned me when he found out I was pregnant.
I was STRESSED!
After spending a summer fornicating (mostly safely but I was young and stupid and one particular day I drank a whole bottle of vodka… anyone!)
Went back to uni in Canada and like a week later had a random fever and backache. My first thought was… “oh shit I’m pregnant!”
But being mature you said if I ignore it o ma disappear. Just don’t think about it. So I left it for like one week.
Then I was like “okay it must be gone!” Bought a test from shoppers. That little fucker gave me 2 lines. I said “Nah b! You a liar. I’m going to the clinic”
Went to Uwaterloo clinic. My doc knew me well cause I’m a slight hypochondriac. I said, “Doc the rest said I’m pregnant!” Not that I’m pregnant you know.
20 minutes later doctor says “you’re pregnant. What do you want to do?”
Now I was STRONGLY pro-life.
So I had one option.
Called my boyfriend. This fool was HELLA HYPE! Talking about “we’re gonna be a family, this is dope, we’re gonna get married, you’ll be the best mom, omg I can’t wait!”
Stupid me I was like “Yea! I can do this! It’ll be great!”
But not so stupid cause Yoruba babe she
Didn’t tell anyone but him. Every damn day for two weeks I was like “call your parents!” And then I’d be like … or maybe just drop off the surface of the earth. Maybe if I pretend to die they never have to know.
Sha gathered courage and called momsi cause calling popsi…?
Me: “Mum, please don’t scream. I’m pregnant” (exact words)
Me: silent tears
Mum: Femi is the father
Me: yes ma
Mum: I’ll call you back.
I knew then that I was dead. Cause I’ll call you back can only ever mean I’m going to talk to my husband.
Like an hour later my father calls me. I literally haven’t moved in that hour. Sitting on my green couch with my phone in my hand.
My loving father: YOU HAVE DISGRACED US!!! YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN! YOU ARE NO LONGER A PART OF THIS FAMILY! DO NOT CALL US!!! GOODBYE!!!
My guy didn’t even give me space to speak, just shouted and hung up.
Cue Imoteda’s Nollywood debut!
I cried and screamed. I literally curled up in a doorway and cried till my throat was raw.
Then I called my brother to tell him I was pregnant and disowned.
My older brother was just like “you’re pregnant? You don’t mean it!”
Then I was like please focus on the important part, I’m disowned!!!
Bless his heart he just shrugged it off… like “you know your father is emotional. Give him time. Are you the 1st to be pregnant? Abeg chill”
4 hours after disownment: Imoteda gets on her laptop. Still ugly crying between. Googles countries Canadian PR can move to. Mexico! Starts googling flight tickets and apartments and jobs.
My dumb ass really thought I was gonna move to Mexico pregnant and start a new life.
7 hours after disownment: now sitting in the dark rocking back and forth regretting calling my mom. Haven’t eaten since I called her and my stomach is screaming. So I decide if I starve long enough the baby will die and my dad will “un-disown” me.
I clearly wasn’t thinking clearly
8 hours after disownment: I’m laying on the floor in the hallway with the apartment phone and cellphone beside my head. My brother has called to make sure I haven’t done anything stupid.
My phone rings: it’s my dad. I stare at it like a snake. I’m not falling for this shit again.
I didn’t pick o! Cause clearly I’m daft.
He calls back.
Me: Hello sir (cause he’s now a sir as he’s no longer my father)
Dad: will you stay in school?
Me: YES SIR!
Dad: Okay. We will support you and your child. We love you.
Me: OMG THANK YOU.
*cue ugly tears again!”
And that ladies and gentlemen is how for 8 hours a girl had no name cause her father disowned her.
Side note: I obviously promptly dropped out of school the next term cause who the fuck tryna be 8 months pregnant walking to campus???
Can I tell y’all how my dad was the most involved Grandpa. Calling after every doctor’s appointment. Did full photo shoot when I came home for Christmas. Did testimony in the church (clearly a special man)
Moved heaven and earth to be there for my delivery. He missed it by like 1hr
Anyways. Shalla to ABA. We don’t always get along but he loves me (all his kids) more than life and does the best he knows how.
And he is the absolute best grandpa to Rayne. Forever spoiling her.
Happy Father’s Day daddy!!! (He’s blocked so he’ll never see this. Lmao)
Okay, I’m back!!! Lmao
So this thread was about dad but I gotta shalla to my mum and my Aunty.
1) Mum- I asked her how she could let him disown me. Mumsi said that’s his own business. She did not disown anybody. Lmfao. My guy was carrying a shoulder.
2) Mummy Lamide- my dads older sister. Mumsi called her to tell her that her brother is turnioniown. My Aunty wore gele and wore wrapper and came to tackle her brother.
She apparently tore into him (my cousin gave me the gist with glee, no one talks to my dad anyhow)
She went all the way off and was like “you can disown her and we will disown you too! Are you not happy you have a daughter that can talk to you! What if she died trying to get an abortion… etc etc etc”
Nigerian & Jamaica Celebrates 50 Years Of Diplomatic Relations With Direct Flights to Jamaica
As the festive season approaches, travel enthusiasts and lovers of fun, relaxation or adventure, will have a chance to create history, by being part of the first direct charter flights from Lagos, Nigeria to Montego Bay, Jamaica. The flights are in celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between Nigeria and Jamaica. Both countries have worked hard to promote culture, education, industrial and economic development, at different levels.
The first flight will leave Lagos on 21 December and return on 28 December 2020. A second rotation will take place from 30 December to 6 January 2021. Each flight will last for just over 11 hours and relieves the traveler of the stress of securing transit visas via Europe or the US and the uncertainties associated with multiple connections.
The flights are being coordinated by the Jamaican High Commission in Abuja and Nigerians Travel Too, a leading tour operator based in Lagos and the UK. They are also a reflection of the creative fusion of the Nigerian and Jamaican history and culture, which both partners have dubbed the Nai-Jamaica Project. A dedicated website www.nai-jamaica.com has been launched, to showcase the range of travel and business opportunities that are available.
In tandem with the upcoming flights, handcrafted holiday experiences and multiple travel packages have been designed with each visitor in mind. The main items covered include: flight tickets, accommodation, airport transfers, tours and meals among others. [Participating tour operators are also offering free visa processing and support].
Nigeria’s trusted international carrier, Air Peace, will facilitate each trip with its elegant Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Passengers will be able to travel in style and comfort across the First, Business and Economy Class cabins that are on offer at unbeatable rates.
Jamaica’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, HE Esmond Reid, has hailed the direct flights as, “An historic and unique opportunity, as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, to reconnect with family and friends from Nigeria, Jamaica, the Caribbean and other parts of the world, in a world class tourist destination”.
Jamaica has won many international travel and tourism awards and has developed special COVID-19 protocols for the tourism sector. These are designed to protect and enhance the tourism experience for visitors and workers in the industry, in the face of the global pandemic.
Widely recognized as the “heartbeat of the world” and the land of Reggae Music, Jamaica is home to various tourist attractions and cultural icons such as Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey and Usain Bolt.
Visitors can never get enough of the opportunities for rafting, diving, golf, tennis, fishing, nature walks or horseback riding, among other exciting activities that are available in Jamaica. Places like the Abeokuta Nature Park and the Calabar High School also add special significance for visitors from Nigeria.
There will be nowhere else like Jamaica this Christmas and New Year. You can’t afford to miss this awesome Nai-jamaica experience!!!
Tickets are selling like hot cakes. Bookings will close on 20 November to guarantee visa processing, so don’t delay.
