The world is definitely changing drastically, and unfortunately, it is tilting towards the angle were a lot of negativities are becoming the acceptable norm amongst the people. Yes, this might sound harsh and weird, but that’s just the bitter truth boldly and unblinkingly staring us in the face.
What’s this talk all about you may have wondered? Well, a certain Nigerian lady has taken to the social media to brag about the fact that she’s a single mother and a proud one at that. According to her, “she has not yet started, as what people may have seen is just a tip of the iceberg”.
Though, one could not possibly lay hands on what she actually meant by that, but she went ahead to add that, she’s a proud single mother and equally throwing jabs at those who might be pained or unhappy with the fact that she’s a proud single mother. So, to the part she said that they have not started, as what people might have seen is a tip of the iceberg, could possibly stand to mean that she will continue to birth more kids out of wedlock.
In her exact words, the young woman identified as Glory Edeh wrote, “we never start o, tip of the iceberg, if e pain you too much go born. Proud single mother. Attack your village winches.”
The post has inevitably triggered mixed reactions from people on the social media platform, though with most of them seriously tackling her over the most which majority see as morally depraved, and not something (lifestyle) one should be proud of, except in an extreme situation.
“I’m a married woman, and even if I’m still single I will never support this rubbish you people are doing…
Who’s proud of a mistake? Only here on Facebook that a lady will be proud of rubbish. Una shame dey shame me big time,” Blessing Johnpaul Okwor sounded.
Another lady with the name Cynthia Andrea rebooked Glory over her choice of words, “I don’t understand this your ‘we never start o, tip of the iceberg. Are you planning to give birth to Agaba village as a single mum?”

Truth remains that most people have lost their sense of dignity, and conscience, hence why they have proudly become shameless with regards to certain lifestyle they endorse, glorify and practice. Aside this very case at hand, we have seen a lot of such or similar scenario, especially amongst women. They are no longer ashamed of giving birth to children out of wedlock, in fact it has become a norm amongst this generation.
The above scenario is the main reason why you will see many of this young people of today’s world, living together as husband and wife, bearing children as they like. Meanwhile, the man has not visited his wife’s people, he doesn’t know the direction to her village or her father’s house, he never took even kolanut and palm-wine to the woman people (family), to inform them that he wants to marry, or that he’s already marrying their daughter depending on what the situation may be, talk more of performing the necessary marriage rites.
This is a lifestyle that has become more common and popular among this generation, which they mostly copy from many of the celebrities who are their idols, and as such, has actually become an attractive lifestyle to the young people out there. Yes, because what is there to be proud of your past error/mistake?
But know it also that it is equally as a result of this that most of these young people who rush into marriages are quick to separate from each other, because there’s no more shame in such a lifestyle.
Mind you, this is a totally different scenario from those whose marriages collapsed as a result of one problem or the other.
May God help this generation!!!
