Pulse Opinion Maje Ayida’s baby mama's post is so wrong

Maje Ayida's baby mama's post is insensitive and wrong. The timing of her post to her son was way off and unnecessary.

Timing is key in life. You must know when to say some things and when to back off. Even the Good Book says that “time and chance” are what really matters.

So Maje Ayida’s baby mama Anita Solomon gave birth to a baby boy last year -that’s good news- and how time flies, the little boy is  year old. Just in case you do not know Toke Makinwa ended rocky marriage to Maje Ayida when she found out that he had impregnated his long time mistress last year.

Now the reality of things is that people must move on. Holding on to the past is a sure way to bring hate and resentment into your life. So let’s all agree that moving on is essential for all parties involved in this matter. And from the look of things it seemed that Toke Makinwa and co. had moved on until Anita Solomon came up with this motherly post today - July 21, 2016.

Should a mother not celebrate her baby boy on his first birthday? By every means she should but we should not disregard the power of context in this special situation. The split between Maje Ayida and Toke Makinwa was very public and a bit ugly. Whether they like it or not their lives as well as Anita Solomon’s has been shaped by what happened last year.

Anita Solomon whether she likes it or not will be perceived as the ‘other woman’, the woman who broke up Toke Makinwa’s marriage. Coming out on Instagram to celebrate her son isn’t the best example of good timing. Emotions are still raw and I bet there are still some feels lingering underneath.

There are many who would see Anita’s post as an effort at mocking Toke Makinwa. We all know how the Nigerian society perceives a woman with child and a woman who is still yet to conceive. The best thing for her to have done was to have quietly celebrated the birthday of her son.

Doing this has opened all parties to scrutiny and another round of online discussion that could have been avoided. This is a time for sensitivity. Yes you want the whole world to know your little man has grown up but think before the other person and how it will affect her before clicking on the post button.
