‘I Was Afraid’, TBoss Explains Why She Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret

 

Weeks after Tokunbo Idowu, a.k.a TBoss, gave birth, she has explained why she kept her pregnancy a secret.

The former Big Brother Nigeria star had been dragged on social media for not outrightly admitting to speculations that she had gotten pregnant.

She had also been criticised over the paternity of the child, but she took to social media to clarify the situation in the early hours of Monday.

According to her, she was never ashamed of the pregnancy, she simply chose to be silent and keep the news private until she was ready.

In a lengthy post on instagram, she said she was afraid of exposing her “best news to the negativity of little & sad minded people”.

What is it about our Generation that’s Always so eager to post up our private lives on Social Media? We get Good news- SM, Not so good news- SM, Someone offends us, someone owes us money, breakups, new home, new car, new shoes, fake designer shoes, borrowed stuff- There’s Absolutely No Mystery anymore. You wanna know about a person? Just look up their SM pages & you’d get a pretty close picture of whom you’re dealing with. I agree I’m not exactly social media compliant but I’m also guilty of sometimes putting more than I ought to have out there thereby subjecting myself to being misinterpreted, misquoted, misunderstood & highly misjudged. And that’s why it was extremely difficult for me to keep my pregnancy all to myself. I mean it was without a doubt The Best news I have ever had & God knows I wanted to shout it out so as to be heard to the ends of the earth BUT I had to 🤐… Not because I was ashamed or nothing of the sort. Hey, I’m a Grown woman let’s be Real. I was Afraid. I was afraid of exposing My best news to the negativity of little & sad minded people of which unfortunately happen to be a lot… I wanted to enjoy this journey, savor every little moment, understand what was happening to me, my body, keep my sanity for my good & the good of my unborn child. Pregnancy is indeed a roller coaster ride and as Ecstatic as I was, it really hit me. My friends all knew- if you didn’t oh well- maybe that’s your cue😏I went shopping & out a lot & took lots of photos with my beautiful fans – Selfies Only of course & never felt the need to cover up or hide anything- And why should I? Do you know the struggle a lot of women go through to get what I have? A Free Gift from God! And you think at 35 I ought to feel some type of way because someone has an unsolicited opinion about me? Ha Ha Ha… Silence is NOT denial. My silence was just that: Silence- until I was ready to speak about it. #Mylife #Myrules #Mydecisions #Noregrets #Thankyou #Thanksfortheconcern #Thanksforthelove #TheLordtrulymakesAllthingsbeautifulinhisowntime #Nabelleicarryinokillperson

BBN Star, Tboss Reveals Plans To Go Into Acting

Big Brother Naija star, Tokunbo Idowu, popularly known as ‘Tboss’ has revealed plans to begin a career in acting as well as hosting a radio show which she hopes to develop into a television programme.

According to her, she is currently gathering content for the show, attending a couple of auditions and she has received a lot of scripts which she has been screening.

The former BBN housemate said this on Channels Television, while sharing her experience in the house as well as outside the house, since the show came to an end.

“I am overwhelmed, completely overwhelmed.” According to her, there has been so much love and she would rather focus on the love, rather than on any form of hate.

Reacting to the issue of an alleged sexual harassment by Kemen, a former housemate who was later disqualified from the show following the incident, TBoss expressed utter disappointment, adding that the decision by Big Brother was the best option.

“I considered Kemen a friend. He was my go-to guy and my buddy, he encouraged me, he motivated me and he pushed me to mingle more with people especially at times when I didn’t feel like I fit in. So, for what happened to have happened, and just knowing all the people that look up to me, it was sad.

“I was angry, humiliated and I did feel violated but, I don’t play the victim card and I honestly feel that the decision that Big Brother took, was the only Decision that could have been taken.”

The ‘See Gobe’ edition second runner up, who was asleep in the same bed with Kemen, when the said assault occurred, stated that she was unaware of any such thing until Big Brother called her attention to it the following day hence; she did not assent to it and whatever happened was not mutual, as initially suggested by Kemen.

She also stated that initially, her reaction to Kemen would have been to slap him if she had her way, but on getting out of the house, she realised that anyone could make mistakes, especially as she considers herself an attractive person.

However, she equally expressed displeasure over the fact that according to her, Kemen has been granting several interviews in which he has been making contradictory statements.

Also reacting to an article titled ‘Big Brother Naija – Television As Madness’, written by a renowned Journalist, and a former Special Adviser to the Nigerian President, Mr Reuben Abati, who specifically body-shamed Tboss, she described it as sad and unfortunate, especially coming from a man of such calibre.

The Big Brother star, has however chosen to remain on the brighter side of life and embrace all the love she gets from the ‘Boss Nation’, as her fans are fondly called.
