According to her, paying rent, school fees, and other miscellaneous expenses was a task.

"I had my own share of pillow cries and made sure she doesn’t see it. Sometimes she could come asking, “Why didn’t you and my Dad stay together?” she said, adding, "When I first moved to Lagos, I couldn’t afford to have my daughter with me because I didn’t have a house; I was squatting with someone. There was a time I saw her like twice a year.

There were times she cried, mummy I want to come and live with you, but I couldn’t afford it till 2011. Yet looking at my daughter, I will be honest that she is a blessing.

And the blessing outweighs the challenges. I have learnt to be patient, more accommodating and to pay attention to details as a mom."
