Ubi Franklin responds as his first baby mama says she plays the role of father and mother in their child’s life

Ubi Franklin has been forced to issue a response after his first baby mama made a statement that gave the impression he’s a deadbeat father.

 

Jennifer, while celebrating Zaneta, the child she had with Ubi Franklin, said she “plays the role of father and mother” in their daughter’s life.

 

 

Ubi quickly responded to Jennifer’s statement by revealing he’s not in America, so cannot always be present to play his fatherly role.

 

He, however, pointed out that his baby mama did not say that he doesn’t provide for their daughter.

 

He wrote: 

 

That woman did not say I don’t take care of my daughter.
If you read up my post, it shows clearly that I don’t live in America and she does most of the work and doesn’t mean I am not doing my side of the pack.
When a woman says I do father and mother job meaning she is a single mother and lives far away and she does all the correcting from a mother and from father. This doesn’t mean I don’t do my job as a father.
Anyone who reads well will see that her post meant no harm.

“Bride price is not Christian” Freeze says as he reveals no man will pay a single Kobo as bride price to marry his daughters

Daddy Freeze has condemned the payment of bride price and has said no daughter of his “will be bought or sold like a commodity”.

 

The media personality who has one biological daughter and other adopted daughters from his partner, said bride price is biblical but not “Christian”. He went on to add that he hopes for a world where the payment of bride price will be abolished.

 

He wrote: 

 

No daughter of mine would be bought or sold like a commodity.

Bride price is biblical, yes, but NOT christian! It’s not everything that is biblical that is christian.

No where was any christian mandated to pay bride price and since we are all one in Christ (Galatians 3:28 
There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ), neither male nor female. So unless groom price is introduced as well, let’s do away with a tradition that that in many places indicates that a woman has been bought and if she wants to leave the marriage she must leave the children of the marriage behind, absolute, ridiculous buffoonery and utter nonsense!

A clear biblical example of where murder was a ‘bride price’ as David killed 200 men and cut their penises just to marry Saul’s daughter.

‘No genuinely born again woman can wear a bikini at the beach’

A Facebook user has said that any woman who wears a bikini at the beach is not “genuinely born again”.

 

Joe Nwagu wrote: “A genuinely born again woman cannot go to an open beach and wear only pant and bra called bikini to swim, it’s evil.”

 

 

 

This comes after actress Meagan Good was criticized by a follower for wearing a bikini despite being married to a pastor (read here).

 

I now live with the emotions of three women, I wouldn’t wish my enemy that

Ubi Franklin expressed anguish of living with the emotions of three women (excluding his fourth baby mama, Sandra Iheuwa) as he celebrated his daughter, Zaneta’s birthday today August 30. 

 

Sharing a beautiful photo of his daughter in celebration of her fourth birthday, the music executive stated that Zaneta’s mother deserves a medal for playing her role as a mother and also some of his as a father. 

 

Ubi further revealed that he is still searching for the best formula of being a good father as he wouldn’t wish his enemy his current state of living with the emotions of three women. 

 

It’s been four years already my little smart and energetic zee mama.
Last four year has been about your mum and she really deserves an award for everything she has been doing and if we have to share responsibility she has done 50% of mine and adding to 100% she brings to the table. 
THE PURPOSE OF GOD WILL NOT BE VOIDED BECAUSE OF FEELINGS OF MEN.

The world may have a different view of how I have had you and your two brothers and in my heard I am wondering the best formula to live well in life and be a good father.

Many are in unhappy marriages and many fathers don’t even take care of their kids who live with them in the same house. Many fathers don’t even take responsibility for their children or even try to have a cordial relationship with their mothers, here am I doing all round to make sure you and your brothers live well,and we still have people who think I have committed an abomination for taking care of my kids and playing my role as a father and a very good one at that. 

This is not an excuse for anyone reading this, I won’t wish my enemy to be in my shoes because I have to live with emotions of three different women (happy/sad).

This has taught me more patience, makes me double up the hustle to give all my Three kids a happy life and that’s my priority now and I don’t think there is a better way for a father to act” he wrote. 

 

Ubi Franklin prayed that his daughter becomes a better woman and also play the role of a big sister to her brothers perfectly. He also revealed that she took his trait of not liking food. 

 

“My daughter you will become a better woman from the way you talk and how energetic you are I have no doubt you will make a big sister to your brothers and will always make me proud in everything in life.
You will excel in your academics, and when you grow old enough to read this, one thing is important and that is people will always want to confine you to live a certain way while covering their own sin to make your look so bad.

Everyone reading this has something they are hiding and will sit on social media to troll others and that’s the sad world we live in now where we cover up our own and talk about others.

One thing you took form me is, we don’t like food .
Your emotions grew right alongside of you this year. While they are big and overwhelming at times, they are letting us get an even bigger sneak peek into the person you are” he added. 

 

Update: ‘We will appeal the judgement’

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has vowed to appeal the judgment of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos that discharged and acquitted a former Senior Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa, and a banker, Joseph Iwuejo, who were charged with N1.6bn fraud.

 

The Commission is studying the details of the judgment and will approach the appeal court for a review. The defendants were arraigned on a 22-count charge bordering on money laundering, conspiracy and concealment to the tune of N1.6bn.

 

The defendants allegedly conspired and laundered the fund through the accounts of A.B. Wise Resources Limited, Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited, Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited, Rotato Interlink Service Limited, Pluto Property and Services Limited and De-jakes fast food and Restaurant Limited.

 

They pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against them, thereby leading to their trial. Parties in the trial had, on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, adopted their final written addresses, after Dudafa had closed his defence on January 22, 2019.

 

In his judgment today, Thursday, August 29, 2019, Justice Muhammed Idris held that the prosecution, through his counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, failed to prove the charges against the defendants beyond reasonable doubts.

 

Justice Idris further held that the prosecution failed to call “material witnesses”, including former President Jonathan, one Somprei Omeibi, the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Godwin Emefiele and ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

 

The Judge also held that, “the prosecution did its best, but it failed to conclude investigation before going to court.” Justice idris consequently dismissed all 22 counts against Dudafa and Iwuejo.

President Buhari breaks silence on 77 Nigerians arrested for cyber crimes in US, says they do not represent Nigerians

President Buhari says the 77 Nigerians recently arrested by the US Federal Bureau of Intelligence FBI, for online scam, do not represent the values of majority of Nigerians.

 

The President broke his silence on the arrest of the Nigerians when he met with leaders of the Nigerian Community living in Japan on the sidelines of the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7). 

 

“Let me also say that there are few Nigerians in the Diaspora that are giving us a bad name by engaging in criminal activities. These Nigerians are a minority, they do not represent the values of our country, and I plead with them to change their ways.

We will not condone any crime whether at home or abroad, and we will also not allow these Nigerians define us as a people with reputation for criminality.” he said

 

Urging Nigerians in Japan to be good ambassadors of their fatherland, President Buhari said

 

“I am personally very happy that there are millions of Nigerians all over the world, like you here, who are truly making us proud”.

 

Describing majority of the over 17 million Nigerians in Diaspora as the face of Nigeria globally and our ambassadors for good, the President noted that many of our Diasporans, like your good selves here today, have excelled in various fields of endeavor, both professionally and individually.

 

“You have also made significant and overwhelmingly positive contributions to your Nigerian and international host communities. You have continually been a positive bridge between Nigeria and the world. It is not an easy feat and we commend you, salute your courage and efforts.

 

Japan is at the cutting edge of technology and efficiency, two very important attributes that can play a role in Nigeria and improve our capacity for development,” President Buhari urged members of his audience to continue to contribute their quota by helping to develop their host country and Nigeria as well, adding: “I look forward to your inborn gift, ability, and capacity in taking up this challenge.”

 

Commending many of them who are already “positively impacting the Nigerian economy through financial home remittances, promoting international trade in Nigerian commodities, our music, culture, tourism, sports, and education, while also helping to establish industries in Nigeria,” the President urged them “to encourage legitimate Japanese entrepreneurs to come and invest in Nigeria.”

 

According to him

“We are continually working to create the necessary enabling environment for investors to thrive, through improvements in our Ease of Doing Business practices, providing security, diversification of the economy, infrastructure and fighting corruption. We have put in place the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERPG) to put the country on a path of sustained recovery and growth.”

 

Explaining the rationale for his regular meetings with Nigerians abroad and the establishment of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, President Buhari said:

“As you are aware, I have regularly held town hall meetings with Nigerians in the Diaspora on all my foreign engagements be they in Europe, Asia, America and Africa.

“At these fora, I have always, appealed to our citizens to be our good ambassadors, observe the laws of your host countries, excel in whatever you do legitimately, and also remember us at home (Nigeria). I have established the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission specifically to engage with you, signifying a coordinated attempt by our administration to increase the involvement of our Diaspora in our national development.

“Collectively, your resources, skills, and talents will be a positive force for our country which can help accelerate our national growth and development.”

Next time I go to the pool I will tie wrapper to please you hypocrites

Belinda Effah lashed out at people she described as ‘hypocrites’ in defence of Meagan Good, after her Instagram exchange with some followers over ‘wearing a bikini even though she is preacher’s wife’. 

 

LIB reported earlier that the American actress served an epic reponse to the criticism she faced from some followers after she shared her bikini photo on Instagram. 

 

Reacting to the Instagram exchange, Belinda Effah backed Meagan’s response which she said was neccesary because people are judgemental and expect you to live by certain rules due to some cliches. 

 

The Nollywood actress stated that salvation is a personal race and the church shouldn’t be a judgement ground but a place of fellowship and to strengthen one’s faith. Belinda also sarcastically told critics dictating what a “Christian” woman should wear, that she will be tying a wrapper to the pool next time she turns up for a swim. 

 

She wrote; 

 

Thank You @meagangood For This Epic Response Because People Are so Judgmental and Expect You To Live By A Certain Set Of Rule Due To Some Cliches Like :

#You Are Born again You Shouldn’t Drink Alcohol
#You Are A Child Of God You Shouldn’t Wear Makeup 
#You Are a Child Of God you shouldn’t wear trouser 
#You are Born again you shouldn’t post your bikini pictures etc
#You are Born again you shouldn’t wear wigs and artificial hair , nails , etc .
.
– Is The Idea Of Being Born Again Is To Look Sad and Sober? If That’s it’s Everyone Of Us Has Defaulted One Way Or The Other .

If I do all these outward things to please you yet my heart is desperately evil how does that make me a Child Of God ? .
.
So If I do most things right and I default in one way does that make me a sinner? .
.
I always tell everyone that cares to listen – Salvation is a Personal race between you and your God . No one is Perfect But God (Jesus)
.
.
The Church Is there as a Guide, Fellowship together so you can strengthens your faith, the church is not a judgement ground, the Pastor is not Holier Than you. . .
You have the Bible as The ultimate Guide – Rest On The Bible day and night and you will have direction and guidance . .
.
I am not a hypocrite and I am not a person pleaser. I am not perfect but I Desire Happiness. If my pursuit for happiness does not meet your terms – I am sorry you will have to find a way to find your happiness. .
.
I am not going to struggle to look right meanwhile I am suffering inside . .
.
You Only Live Once – It’s Your Heart God Wants Not Your Hypocritical Self. Live and Let’s Live
.
.
PS : Next Time I go to the pool I will tie wrapper and swim because the people there will see me when I come out of the pool. This is me trying to please the hypocrites 
.
.
Peace . Love and Light 

 

 

Belinda Effah also dropped a rejoinder comment after a follower alleged that she has a myopic understanding of the scriptures. The follower had written; 

 

 

Your myopic understanding of the scriptures can not change the standard of God…read your bible sis

 

The actress however wrote in response; 

 

 I am entitled to my opinion, likewise. The Bible didn’t say I should tie wrapper to the pool. So if I can tie wrapper to the pool why can’t I post it. You should rather reason properly. Whatever I can do in secret I should do it in public otherwise I am a hypocrite. Are you now saying going to the pool is wrong? If I wear a bikini to church that is wrong. But if you condemn me for wearing bikini in the pool my brother you are the major problem.

If I can wear bikini to the pool why can’t I post it? So just so I don’t get condemned by hypocrites? You know people around the pool will still see me when I wear bikini. So what’s your argument really? There is a dress code for every occasion . Bikini for pool . So posting bikini pictures is wrong? I need to know .
