Just some hours after his wife’s tearful apologies on air, Femi Afolabi-Brown, whose wife, Morayo anchors the programme, ‘Your View’ On TVC, has come out to defend his wife.
This is against the backlash Morayo has received from critics of her statement on social media.
You need not fret about what my wife said on TV. My wife never in any way suggested I was a child molester. She stated her trust in her husband, then said she wouldn’t allow her husband bath her daughters. Then the most negative of souls twisted her statements and ran with it. But if you notice, the enlightened ones among the commenters understood her message and agreed with her’.
“Well, here is my take. I tell my daughters never to let any man put them on his laps, or touch them in certain places, or hold them in certain ways, or even see their nakedness. I personally extended those rules to myself to reinforce the teaching.
That is the modus operandi I have chosen in raising my own daughters. My wife merely spoke on TV as if she made those rules. Her mistake. In a nutshell, as long as my wife or a female person is available, I shall never bath any of my daughters.
Why should I, for God’s sake ? Others can be doing that in their own houses, but not in my house’.”
Morayo, two days ago on her show Your View on TVC said she trust her husband but wouldn’t allow him bathe their daughter. Her statement generated a lot of criticism and backlash from people especially on social media. Many people said her statement indirectly insulted her husband and considered him a paedophile.
