The video went viral and led to concerns about the state of Oduwole's mental health.
In a Facebook post, the UK based writer has come to clarify the origin of that video, and why she was shedding tears.
According to Yetunde Oduwole who was with Baba Tee for three years, the video was sent to Baba Tee seven months ago when their relationship came to and end. Oduwole said that was the best way she could express her hurt and pain to Baba Tee (Babatunde Bernard).

FOR THE RECORDS AND FOR CLARITY....
Whoa! Thanks to family, friends and fans of Bustline all over the world who have been bombarding me with calls and messages about the "Crying Video" Lol. I appreciate you all and at this point; I think you all deserve some clarification.
First of all; do not be scared; I've not gone bunkers. Lol. I couldn't have gone on YouTube to post a video of myself in that kind of situation. Moreso; I wouldn't want you all to catch me without my wig; and with such an ugly face
Now, the video was sent to Tunde Bernard sometime in December/January when we had a rift and I decided to pack it all up. Hey; I'm not gonna come up here and say I don't cry; I do cry; we all do in our closet. Not a big deal. It was my means of communicating with him at the time because I didn't want to talk to him directly and wanted my words to sink in. Well; he obviously kept the video safe with an evil thought that he would one day use it against me and get me embarrassed. But the table turned in my favour like magic! So far I got more heartfelt messages from well meaning people the world over than the embarrassment it was intended to cause. I guess his intention bounced in his face. To God be the glory!!!
January to me is a long time ago. I have since moved on; and knowing me; I would not sit in a corner for too long. I've got spring in my steps and that makes me unusually unstoppable. Though my cry doesn't last that long; but believe me; it detoxicates me and makes me feel better. Yes big girls cry too. Just like the rest of you.
Please this isn't my current situation and I'm not crazy enough to post such a video. But if there is any award to dole out to me; going by this video; it's the crier of the year award. Lol. That was some good one! People close to me know me to shed tears for even the people I don't know. I shed tears even when watching depressing movies; despite the fact that i know it's make-believe, It's the soft part of me that God has not given me the grace to hide.
If you think you have tarnished my image by uploading and sharing a video that was meant to be between you and I, and you are there mocking and leaving nasty comments; I've got a message for you: God is watching and would definitely pay each person with their own coin. I won't wish you the pain behind those tears; I'll simply let God judge you. Simple.
Bustline is still your sassy and snazzy girl who could cry and who could stay strong at the same time. By the way; I still looked pretty in the video even amidst those tears....never mind my hair though; it was blooming at the time Maybe when next I cry; I'll apply make up cos you never know where it would be uploaded....looolzzz.
I thank you all for your love and concern. You have all been awesome and supportive. You are all family! And I'm sorry if I haven't picked your call. I couldn't have picked them all.
And to Tunde Bernard who thinks uploading such a private video would depress me, you are hella' wrong you know! This babe is flyiiiiiing!!
Most of all; though it's painful to do; but I forgive you. I won't let you or anyone come in the way of my prayers.
Love you all fam....xx
IT IS WELL"
