TV presenter Morayo Afolabi-Brown tearfully apologises to husband
TVC presenter, Morayo Afolabi-Brown has apologised to her husband, Femi, over a statement she made on live TV on Wednesday.
Speaking during the popular Your View breakfast show, Mrs Afolabi-Brown said although she trusted her husband, she would not let him bathe her daughter.
“I absolutely trust my husband but I won’t take chances and have him bathe my daughter, because whether we like it or not, there is something flying in the air these days that is encouraging imbalance and immoralities,” she said.
In spite of negative reactions that immediately trailed her statement, the TV presenter insisted that she was not wrong to have made the comments.
In a video posted on Instagram on Thursday, she said her husband was not a paedophile, but “a responsible decent man” who “can never do anything to hurt any of his children.”
She, however, stated that she was speaking for women who keep quiet despite knowing their husbands are sexually abusing their daughters.
“So understand this, there are women who have used their life to vouch that their husbands would never abuse their daughters yet we see it happen. Let’s make it easy for those women to speak up. Let’s make it easy for girls to speak up about their abusers, even if it’s their father!” she added in the caption to the video.
Her explainations did not make any impact and so she was forced to apologise publicly to her husband.
“The last 24 hours have been tougher than I expected, my sincere apologies to my husband, I love, trust and respect you! It was an error and I’m really sorry,” she with tears in her eyes on Friday’s edition of Your View.
Afolabi-Brown’s husband is a lawyer and a businessman.
