TVC presenter, Morayo Afolabi-Brown has responded to clarify things after her stance on preventing child abuse went viral and earned her criticisms.
Morayo, while speaking on her breakfast show, Your View, said she doesn’t allow her husband to bathe their daughter due to the increasing rate at which fathers now sexually abuse their children. She, however, added that she trusts her husband completely but she wasn’t taking chances.
Her statement went viral and led to a debate. Some criticized her saying she has indirectly disrespected her husband and called him a paedophile, others reminded her that her daughter was her husband’s child too so he should be allowed to care for her. Some told her that if she wouldn’t let her husband bathe their daughter, then she shouldn’t be allowed to bathe their son.
But there were those who defended Morayo by pointing out that there are fathers who rape their daughters and those fathers are usually trusted by their wives which is why they were willing to leave the father alone with the daughter. They added that abusers usually seem innocent and no woman ever wants to believe that her husband is the type of man who would abuse their daughters, yet it happens all the time.
