Gospel singer Size 8’s appreciation of her hubby DJ Mo backfired horribly after her fans lashed out for terming fatherhood as a favor.
The singer had penned down a post thanking the deejay for being present in their daughter’s life but fans found fault with her choice of words.
“Swity @djmokenya its not a must for you to be there for @ladashabelle for that I say thank. And to you my God every minute wambo spends with her father Lord I thank you I don’t take it for granted.” She wrote
The post lit up a fire among her fans who commented that it was every father’s responsibility to be present in their child’s life and not a favor.
“Just to point out it’s not a favor what dads do by them being around it’s a MANDATE… so thank God and congratulate Mo for being a responsible parent.” wrote one user
“I feel like your message means that fathers being there for their kids is doing a favour to the mothers….No I disagree, they should be there and telling them that it is not easy is way wrong, who said it is easy for the mothers? Today I disagree. Men should man up and raise their kids. They are not doing any favour to nobody.”Wrote Jacque Njeri
