Nigerian fashion entrepreneur and celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani has stated that it is wrong for her child or any child to address their step father ‘Dad’.
Toyin is a mother of two children, Tiannah and Lord Maine. She had Tiannah with her former husband and Lord Maine with her ex, musician Lord Trigg. Her breakup with Lord Trigg was very messy as people started peddling rumors alleging that the artist had been dating Toyin Lawani just for her financial wealth. Some also claimed it was because of the huge age difference between the two.
Toyin Lawani is a Nigerian fashion designer, stylist, interior decorator and entrepreneur. She is the founder and CEO of Tiannah Place Empire.
The mother of two got married to her heartthrob, photographer Segun Wealth also known as Deeunknown in a star studded all black themed party on June 12, 2021.
It will be expected that after the marriage, Segun Wealth should adopt her children from her previous relationships. Toyin however holds a different view from this.
A social media user @daisy_macaulay had commented;
“One day Tenor will call Uncle Segun “DAD”. God bless your home Tiannah.”
Toyin had responded to this. Stating that it is wrong for her children to call her husband ‘dad’.
“I won’t let him do that no matter what, is it like he doesn’t have his own dad? No no no, that’s wrong”
Further reacting to this, Tiannah wrote;
“On this pregnancy series, I am here to touch all areas, someone made this comment on my previous post. And I had this to say, why would I feel comfortable for my kid to call my husband dad, when it is not like his dad is dead or something. I have never and will never stop my kids from their dads regardless of our situations, I make sure they have a life with their dads and I don’t get involved. I feel it’s extremely wrong to support such. Every child deserves to know right from wrong. Everyone’s story is different so I can’t be the one to tell them or decisions to take or what to do with their kids. But as for me my child ain’t calling nobody dad except his dad…..”
