Maria Okan, a former Nigerian actress, and BBC presenter have refuted reports that she was paid to abort her pregnancy for musician and record executive Olamide Adedeji, better known as Olamide Baddo. On Tuesday, September 6, 2022, she announced it on Twitter.
Good morning. I was never paid to kill, asked for, or given money to kill the child. I heard that narrative when you all did it – when I was eight months old. You claim I made the incorrect decision to carry life, and I should’ve chosen murder? Pele. She tweeted, “I adore parenthood.”
September 6, 2022 — Maria Okan (@MariaOkan) Maria Okan said, “When those bogus reports came out, I opted to focus on delivering my child at the moment since I had a high-risk pregnancy and a fibroid that virtually erupted a few months in. There is no longer any need for concern now that she is secure and unharmed. We give thanks to God.
September 5, 2022 — Maria Okan (@MariaOkan) To get the record straight, no one has ever offered to pay for an abortion on my behalf. As a mother, you will understand how disrespectful this is when you carry a kid and deliver her by the Grace of God. Maria Okan’s remarks came only hours after she posted on Instagram about how she discovered she would be raising her kid alone months into her pregnancy.

This is the story of a woman who moved to the United Kingdom from Nigeria when pregnant with her first kid. She wrote that she understood she would have to raise the child alone halfway through her pregnancy.
Maria Okan made pregnancy headlines in 2019, and the excitement was palpable. The MTV Shuga actress had started seeing Olamide under the impression that he was unmarried and split from his baby mom.
