The tendency of young women dating older men for financial gain is not new in the world. While the name has changed from sugar daddy to sponsor recently, the act remains the same.
A young lady planning to date an old man will never tell her parents about the arrangement. However, a Kenyan radio presenter Natalie Githinji has gone viral for the same. She was jokingly informing her mother that she is looking for a sugar daddy. Mike Sonko, the ex-Nairobi Governor shared the conversation online, however, it has since gone viral.
The video shows Natalie setting up the camera before telling her mother. She then proceeds to say that she wants to date an older, moneyed man.
From the onset, you can clearly tell she wanted to capture her mother’s reaction to this very sensitive topic.
“Mum, I am looking for an old man with money, a potbelly, houses and vehicles. That is the type of man I want in my life…A man who can keep me,”she says.
The mother soon replied; “Keeping you what? Is there anything else you are thinking of aside from money?”
Like the mother’s straight reaction wasn’t enough, the lady further went on to say;
“He should be around 50 or 70 years old,”
The lady continues by saying she has a money problem. In a rejoinder, the mother tells her to instead look for a young boyfriend so they can build themselves up together.
The mother went to decried the high expectations young girls have of men nowadays.
“Have you no shame saying you are looking for a rich, older man? Can’t you look for a young man to start building with? The high expectations you young ladies have are the reason why some of you go crazy. You find a young woman who has not even given birth appearing even older than me because the brain is idle, building castles in the air. When you see a fancy car, you want to own it yet you have no means. You want to be sponsored, are you Kenya? Do you want sponsorship to build a road?”the angry mother responds.
Here are some of the reactions:
Samuel De Phineas:“It’s so sad to see that most of the relationships are based on wealth and riches ….nowadays true love is rare to find.”
MK Kibe:“The mother answered her candidly!”
Emilly Kimweru:“Kenya we are sponsored. Mum of the day!”
Sos Tioko Faulu:“It is just for fun and educational, no hard feelings people.”
Vallerierose Vall:“Money is not everything, true love en peace of mind very important.”
Famous gospel singer, Tope Alabi’s shocking secrets have been revealed by her ex, Mayegun Olaoye’s brother.
For those who don’t know, Olaoye is the man that came out recently to tell anyone that cares to know that he is the father of Tope Alabi’s 22year old daughter, Ayomikun.
<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">Be that as it may, <strong>Mayegun Olaoye’s</strong> brother, given the way the story has been handled by the media has come out to clear the air on the truth of the matter.Be that as it may, Mayegun Olaoye’s brother, given the way the story has been handled by the media has come out to clear the air on the truth of the matter.
He said; “I am the brother to the father and we can’t just be responding to all this matter because it might blow out of proportion that will now be as if we want to run Tope Alabi musical career down.”
“But with this advise she gave to Ayo to blow it on the media more without asking about how the blogger got the story might open past healed wounds for both parents who have moved on in life!”
“The fact is that a serious allegations of Ayomikun being a bastard came up and my brother had to state the facts that he is the father and can’t deny the fact that she gave birth to her.”
“If a blogger now wants to make story to trend with it, is it in any way my brother’s fault?”
“I lived in same room with Tope and my brother at Oguntolu in Onipanu those years, I can give you first hand information about how they met and how Tope took charge of him and they both begin to live as husband and wife.”
“My brother took good care of Tope throughout the pregnancy till she gave birth to the baby, he threw Owambe party with musicians on the bandstand majority of the ‘who is who’ of those days in the Yoruba Movie Producers and Marketers at Idumota were all in attendance.”
“Go ask any of them who didn’t know the story of Olaoye and Tope.”
“Do you know what Soji Alabi was to Tope when she was still married to my brother? Do you know how many times I came back from school to Lagos and met Soji in my brother’s house with Tope alone? And all I could get when I told my brother was a beating of my life for saying rubbish of his wife and he was defending her that Soji was just her sound engineer and producer…”
“Hmmmmm!!!! until she moved out with the baby just barely a year old and the following year she got married to Soji Alabi, that’s when the reality dawn on my brother, do you know she left my brother to bankrupt when she left with a movie and music album my brother sponsored.”
“Let me tell you this and I challenge Tope Alabi to come out to dispute it and I will be willing to call both to face each other and open all past wounds. The child was born in 1998 and Tope left my brother 1999. She took the baby to her parents’ place at Mafoluku in Oshodi, Lagos where they lived.”
“I can’t remember how many times I had to go visit the baby when she was in nursery school even my kid brother, Femi that was staying with my brother too do go there to visit the child with Christmas clothes, gifts and necessary items to Tope’s mother who was taking good care of the baby then.”
“I could remember on one occasion of my visit that Tope’s mother had to show me Ayomikun’s results saying how she was brilliant and performing well in class.”
“More so, Tope used to come to Idumota to get money for the child’s upkeep from my brother until her second or is it the third album “Oree ti o Common” become a hit and she became rich.”
“Since her life changed, money and fame started coming, she took the child away from her mother to her husband’s house and that was when we stopped going to see the baby.”
“My brother do call once in a while to ask if he could see the child, she would say she is busy and not always around in the country, she kept posting us, telling us that she will bring the baby which she never did.”
“My brother is married too and has kids and have moved on with his life. I don’t think any right thinking person would advise anyone to be going to their former spouse’s house all in the name of wanting to come look after a child.”
“Fast forward to 2018 when the child clocked 20 and Tope granted an interview with Punch newspaper where she said she was a virgin till he married Soji Alabi, that was when issues started and the paternity matter arose as we were told that Ayomikun was said to be Soji Alabi biological daughter and those that know the story began to say she is a bastard but my brother had to do a post to clear the air then on his Instagram page on the 20th birthday of Ayomikun. He tagged her and tagged Tope Alabi too in order to make it clearer.”
“He is not demanding to father the child, neither is he clamouring to come sit down at her wedding as it is was being speculated.”
“After Ayomikun’s 20th birthday, part of the steps my brother took to clarify the issue was inviting Tope Alabi to ask why she had to change the childs name, is it to cover up her past or what? The meeting was organised by some major Yoruba film producers and marketers in person of Alh. Wasiu of Wastayo Films and Alhaji Ishola Saheed of Isolak Films at the Arena, Oshodi.”
“I was also in attendance and I recorded all the discussions we had that day even Tope Alabi herself said that we can record her words. She said one thing she knew clearly was that Olaoye didn’t treat her badly nor wish her bad, hence she didn’t tell Ayomikun anything bad about him, she (Tope Alabi) was the one who offended Olaoye and she would gladly apologise to him.”
“She said the reason she had to change the name of the child was because most times then, she do travel abroad for her music ministrations and she always had the issue of going to get the father’s consent for her baby and to make things easier for her, she had to change the name to Alabi for visas and traveling with her, not that she deny her to know the story of her real father.”
“On that day, she gave him the number of the child and I and my brother spoke with her for some times after then but they both didn’t get along.”
“We cautioned our brother to thread softly from getting close to her as people might think he was trying to dig the past of his ex. It baffled us to see comments from those who do not even know the real story.”
“We never intend to run anyone down, we all have our past and we believe the past should remain a past. No one is trying to claim any child or whatever. What my brother did to inform the blogger was to clarify issues as regards her paternity that she is called a bastard bearing another person’s name and denying her of her real father.”
“We have cleared the main issue of the paternity and whoever she likes she should call her father, no one will be hurt by that, we know whose gene is in her.”
“The lineage she belongs to is from Owo, Ondo State as Soji Alabi is a Kogi man and knows for sure the child he nurtured is ‘Funto’ and nothing bad must happen to her. That is a fact that can never be altered. Time will tell for us all.”
