Musician Heartbroken as People Ask Her to Kill Her Disabled Son: ‘I Cry Every Night’

Jodie, a Nigerian musician and actress, has spoken up about the difficulties of raising a child with special needs in the country.

The Kuchi Kuchi actress, whose six-year-old son, Chinua has cerebral palsy, wrote in an emotional Instagram post that the hospital where she gave birth to him was to blame for his illness.

Many people have recommended her to kill her son, according to the mother of one, who revealed how her son’s health has damaged her finances.

Jodie stated that she has worked a variety of jobs to support her child, but that the high expense of child care has absorbed all of her earnings.

“My savings have been sucked dry. Because I’m a beggar, my pals have abandoned me. Every morning, I have fresh bills.” She explained.

Other special-needs parents, like Jodie, have suffered alone for far too long because they are ashamed of the stigmatization.

She asked the government, non-governmental groups, and other authorities to develop a “permanent solution” for special needs children’s care so that parents are not forced to go bankrupt in order to care for their children.

“I have a heavy head. My eyes hurt from crying every night. Don’t wait for the singer of Kuchi Kuchi to pass away before holding a memorial ceremony for her child. Spend no money when I’m gone. Do everything you can while I’m still living. I implore you, Nigerians.” She continued.

Jodie, whose full name is Joy Eseoghene Odiete, married Chinua’s father, actor David Nnaji, in October 2015, but the couple divorced shortly after Chinua was born.
