I fed my newborn with garri as teenage mum –  Biodun Okeowo

Nollywood actress Biodun Okeowo is not just a screen diva but a successful skin therapist. She does not fail to shower praises on her children as she spends quality time with them once she gets the opportunity to. On Sunday,  Omobutty as fondly called took to her Instagram handle to share a story of how she mistakenly got pregnant 18 years ago.
Okeowo added that, she thought that would be the end of her life but fought her way through the rough times. In her posts, she narrated how her mother was the only support she has and how she fed her baby boy soaked garri because she had no money to buy the cheapest baby food.
“18 years ago, I got pregnant. A mistake I thought has ruined my life. People laughed, jeered and mocked me. The embarrassment was too much, that it gave me strength to decide I must go back to school. I enrolled at L.A.S.U (part-time) with no support from anyone except my mum. I did so many menial jobs to cater for myself and the new baby.
I fried doughnuts and Chin chin, which I supply to retailers on campus. I sold rice outside mummy’s shop on days that I have no lectures. I sold hair extensions, make hair, ‘stay awake overnight to make hair for people (one million braid) was in vogue then. I remembered a particular day I fed my son with soaked garri! Yes, I couldn’t afford a tin of even the cheapest ‘My boy’ baby food then.”
