She said,

“My parents were very strict, my dad said the moment I graduated, he didn’t want me to get fat on his couch. He said I was on my own and was worried about how I would survive. He didn’t want me to be a liability, so I made it easy for him. After NYSC, I didn’t go back home, I stayed at home.

“I had such a good upbringing, military dad, Deeper Life mum and a nurse. You don’t mix up with people and we don’t even have TV. I grew up not watching TV, and I still don’t have a good habit of watching TV till now. Daddy is coming home and everyone is runing inside the room but I just wanted to know what is happening outside. My dad was quite worried that I would become a Vagabond.”

I Was Ridiclued For Gaining Weight

Bambam also disclosed the difficulties she endured during her first pregnancy after being diagnosed with preeclampsia.

The mother of two stated that pregnancies transformed her body, causing her to face ridicule for gaining weight.

She acknowledged her husband, Teddy A, for the support, after which she emphasized the importance of having a partner who embraced and supported her throughout the transitions.

She said,

“I would never have imagined my body would get this thick but thank God for supportive husbands like mine. Imagine having a husband who was not open to the transition phases I went through with each pregnancy.

“My second pregnancy was even more merciful than the first. I went from Maroon to black, from size 8 to 14/16. I had skin tags and acne breakouts.

“I was in shock. I went through postpartum depression. I was a mess. I didn’t understand. I literally transformed.”
