Following several conflicts between Nigerian celebrity couples in recent times, Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha, has via her Instagram page pleaded with parents to desist from posting DNA test results on social media platforms with children’s names on them.
According to her, posting such sensitive documents with the child’s name might lead to emotional distress for the concerned child later in life.
She wrote, “While we are always sensationalized about bad news, especially when it comes to famous people and their marriages and relationships crumbling, let us remember they are humans.
“Marriage is not easy; whoever tells you otherwise is a liar from the pit of hell. Many give their all and survive, others like me couldn’t make it, while many paid the ultimate price and are six feet beneath the earth.
“That being said, it should be our collective duty to pray and be kind towards them. People are going through hard times, and the pandemic has added another layer of depression, pain, and anxiety for many,” she said.
“This is a passionate appeal to parents caught up in DNA issues and bloggers writing about it; please, for the love of God, when posting DNA evidence, please and please at least black out the innocent children’s names to save them from more trauma. It is bad enough to find out the truth about your identity, and have your name plastered all over the internet. Remember, the internet never forgets,” she wrote.
Recall that OAP Nedu of Wazobia FM alleged that the first son birthed by his ex-wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri, during their marriage was not his biological child who had earlier posted the DNA test result, complete with the child’s name, on his Instagram page.
