All over the world, June 17 is usually set aside to celebrate fathers. On this day, many celebrities take to their respective social media pages to celebrate the day as it pleases them.
Back here in Nigeria, it wasn’t any different. However for some celebrities the day afforded them the excuse to ‘shame’ their ex-partners, baby daddies and baby mamas on Instagram.
Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, was one of the first celebrities to take to Instagram to shade her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, in a cheeky post.
The actress wished herself a Happy Father’s Day and shaded those “sperm donors claiming to be fathers yet contribute nothing to the lives of their kids.”
The mother-of-two revealed that she has been a single parent for 17 years and she didn’t mention ex-husband’s name in the post but the latter would have none of it.
He also took to his Instagram page to explain that he has been a loving father to his son and his stepdaughter, Mitchell.
While fans were being entertained by their tirades, controversial actress, Tonto Dikeh, and her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, also engaged in a war of words on Instagram.
In her post, Tonto celebrated herself for playing the ‘fatherly’ role perfectly and then went on to explain how to be a good father.
Her husband also responded to her claims saying, “I am a proud father”.
About the same time, Singer May D shared a video of his baby mama asking their son to insult him on Instagram. The video has generated many comments and discussions.
Wizkid’s second baby mama, Blue Diamond, also took out time to shame him on Instagram whilst insisting that he is a deadbeat dad.
Blue Diamond wished herself a happy father’s day and threw some darts at Wizkid stating that he is not involved in her son’s life in anyway.
