My husband is not a pedophile - Morayo clarifies controversial statement lailasnews


TVC presenter, Morayo and her other colleagues were having a discussion on rape viz-a-viz the relationship between father and daughter and if boundaries should be set in this kind of relationship.

“I actually trust my husband but I’m just being careful because people that have experienced this kind of situation, also trusted their husbands and yet, it happened”,she said.

Her statement went viral and led to a debate. Some criticized her saying she has indirectly disrespected her husband and called him a paedophile, others reminded her that her daughter was her husband’s child too so he should be allowed to care for her. Some told her that if she wouldn’t let her husband bathe their daughter, then she shouldn’t be allowed to bathe their son.

Morayo has now responded to set things straight, she said:

My husband is not a pedophile, he’s a highly responsible, decent man. He can never do anything to hurt any of his children.

Psychology has told us to teach children to respect their personal spaces and ensure that family members don’t come too close.

We need to define what is too close as a child.

So, I’m glad the conversation has started, I’m glad we’re talking about it. Let us understand that these are real life issues that are happening.

I will normally not do this but I feel I should respond. It’s painful that people think I would in anyway suggest that my husband is a “potential abuser”. Sad. The truth is that the show allows us to state varied views which should be respected and understood. So understand this, there are women who have used their life to vouch that their husbands would never abuse their daughters yet we see it happen. Let’s make it easy for those women to speak up. Let’s make it easy for girls to speak up about their abusers, even if it’s their father! @tvcconnect @kemiolunloyo @tmospeaks @opes_world @lindaikejiblog @mariamlonge @beeceeugboh @yenikuti @mobolajiolawuyi @omokheowa @tmospeaks @akashatnymat @yourviewtvc @oluwaloninyo @dammyolaiya

  1. Shes completely saying rubbish.. How can she be saying such words in the public..(you can’t allow your husband to bathe your daughter)that kind of statement can destroy a happy home

  2. Nigerian with their wahala, thanks Morayo for clearing the air. At least people will have a better understanding of what she meant.

  3. What she said earlier is different from what she is saying now… Even if she is trying to protect her daughter from been hurt… Will her husband hurt his daughter

  4. Is life experiences that made her make that statement. The people you trust most are the ones that let you down.

  5. I Understand her But She shouldnt have made Such comment in public, you know this Our heart Is trick, people Must think negative,

  6. Good that you trust your husband you have taken time to clear the air concerning the statement you made.

  7. Why clarrify again because you thought to use your husband to portray your point was wise.For me you disrespected him.

  8. Those words are really harsh toward your husband in public. It all point all out that your hubby is irresponsible for training up your children especially your daughters.

  9. People with diffrent opinions. Its better you don’t talk in public if not you will have different verses of your statement.

  10. Then why said you don’t trust your husband with your daughter . There is so many things involved with the statement . She’s yet to tell us the truth

  11. so public slander is your own way of being careful, has social media really warped people’s mentality

  12. You have said it all,it doesn’t mean you don’t trust your husband,but to avoid stories that touch the heart

  13. She has a point but should also be able to trust her husband moreover she can’t prevent him from bathing her if he wants to.

  14. I still hold strong to the fact that she didnt trust her husband in one bit……to be sincerely speaking……..this woman doesnt know what the husband can do and what he cant do so to say……..her action is an act of public disrespect to the husband……

  15. You know how Nigerians are,you should not be using your husband as an example in your discussion,y you are right, we should set boundaries for our girl child

  16. Interesting episode….. Why on earth are we always living our lives to please people.
    Don’t please and re please anyone. Your husband shouldn’t be too close to your girl child.
    Final

  17. madam, it is too late already. next time check time.
    he according to you can’t be trusted with the resultant effect of his spermatogenesis after nine months stay in you uterus.
    insult.

  18. Although mistake have made by some people but you as a lady and a mother should trust and believe in your husband…

  19. She shouldn’t have referenced her husband in the first place…it’s just like an act of public disrespect for her husband

  20. If you don’t trust your husband, it means you are doomed, you better wake up and act like a real wife material

  21. People like to talk nonsense sha,
    Morayo is making a point and they’re busy talking rubbish to attack her.

  22. She is entitle to her opinion, for the fact that you don’t agree with her does not mean she is wrong. We should learn to respect other people’s view.

  23. She should not be criticized.
    She is saying something. We should try and listen to what she is saying. Sadly she has a point and. I agree with her

  24. Why will she call her husband into such discussion, she should have just used other instances instead. This might cause problems in her home if care is not taken.

  25. If the daughter is tender and can’t bath herself, I don’t see reason the husband shouldn’t bath her, but if she’s grown pubic hairs, the man should keep off. He can be tempted and if he’s disciplined enough anything can happen

  26. Trust no one but God dear, the heart of man is full of evil ,and making such statement in a tv show sounds so odd to me

  27. the fact about the issue is that people reactions varies, for i may not blame the man or his daughter neither.

  28. If u are so sure ur husband is not a paedophile, how come u don’t trust him with ur girl child? I he bottom line is: one can’t be too careful. The days are evil

  29. Those words are really harsh toward your husband in public. It all point all out that your hubby is irresponsible for training up your children especially your daughters.

  30. I believe her first statement is true… although she trust her husband bt yet let’s call a spade a spade….a responsible husband can b a monster to d daughter…he shouldn’t bath d daughter cause he will have to wash her vaginal ND d power of d flesh is really strong… unimaginable thought can wander through his mind wen bathing d daughter nd can make him irresponsible

  31. She was the one that cos this…she said she won’t allow her husband to bath her girls child…for what now

  32. Yes, these are real life situation but that doesn’t mean you should say your husband can’t bath his own daughters that are yours too. I feel this statement is borne out of distrust for your husband, and there is no controversy about this.

  33. We should mind the kind of statements we make in public, our understandings are not the same. Thank God you trust your husband

  34. Issues will always come up from any topic, she knows why she made the statement she made, but people are now blowing the issue out of proportion and out of context. But if you know, you know.

  35. From the comments you made yesterday, I don’t think you trust your hubby as you strongly claim Because if you do, you wouldn’t have said such

  36. All men are not thesame , and this woman trust her husband that there are some things he can’t do, and he can never harm his children

  37. But I don’t think this is a public issue, your opinion and how you want your home to be should be your privacy not public because you are indirectly insulting your husband u know.

  38. Everyone has different opinion, and been protective over your daughter, should not led you not trust your husband, that child is the product of both of you,

  39. Her statement are contradicting each other. She might trust her husband but she still has doubts about him

  40. As lady you should try and control your tongue in public, this can really destroy a happy home. But it’s good as you came out to clarify things

  41. Trust Nigerians in blowing things out of proportion. There is no distrust from her statement. Taking extra precaution is necessary.

  42. She can keep that kind of statement to herself and never reveal it to her husband or the public cuz things like that ruins relationship

  43. She might be protecting her husband, despite the fact that she probably knows the man’s weakness, that’s good women for u.

  44. she knows why she made the statement she made, but people are now blowing the issue out of proportion, But if you know, you know.

  45. She knows what she is saying this vain does not know brother and sister talk more of father and daughter, a mother can comfortably put her fingers in her daughters Virginia but a father can not do that so are they saying, any we all are entitle to our on opinions

  46. Trust is the Most important thing in a relationship….is good to know that you trust your husband…som people will think trust is not there after your recent statement .noted.

  47. Talk to your daughters to speak up if they are been abused even if it is their daddy but telling the whole word that you wont let your husband bath your daughter to avoid possible abuse suggest your husban is a paedophile you cant entrust your daughter to. What an insult to the man you called your husband.

  48. Your earlier statement will surely cause controversy, it will make people think otherwise because you know your husband better

  49. I can’t believe some people are still shining morayo about her statement. Please reality check n balances are needed even for those that we trust solo much.

  50. You people should not crucify, she only expressed her feeling because of the happenings around . Men are different, some are very discipline, with lot of self control, while others are dogs…

  51. I am 100% in support of your stance.Really weird how people find it difficult to accept hard facts especially now that the occurrence of child sexual abuse is high

  52. Do you know that before bringing matter of such great gravity to social media. You never thought of how people will help you hold your opinion.

  53. I guess she is having issues with that in her matrimonial home presently. Its good you cleared yourself.

  54. ok o let assume it to be as you said o but my prayer for you is that let your husband continue to be good as you continue to trust him

  55. if she wouldn’t let her husband bathe their daughter, then she shouldn’t be allowed to bathe their son. Instead of calling her husband a pedophile

  56. She unknowingly just mocked her hubby. Forget psychology, na two of una get the responsibility of taking care of your kids whether boy or girl

  57. She has said her view about it all, maybe what she said earlier called the attention of the public, but i believe her views should be respected, she knows her husband more than others, enjoy your family

  58. Nigerians really knows how to tackle someone even when they’re saying the truth. Is it your family or daughter??

  59. Nice and polite response, I don’t know why people tend to put words in another person’s mouth even though they actually know what they mean, things are really happening, so we all have to be very careful.

  60. She shouldn’t have used her husband as an example. No matter how she tried to defend herself now, peoples opinion can never changed and people are perceived to have there own understanding. I love who said, if she can’t allow her husband to bath her daughter then she shouldn’t be allowed to bath her son too because boys still get abused too.

  61. Some people always say anything they like online but is not fair, one av to be careful with his/ her word

  62. There is sense in what you say, but your defense isn’t still strong enough to clarify the misunderstandings of people

  63. Everyone knows how they live there lives,madam i am sure your husband didn’t see your previous statement because it actually suggested what your trying to clarify now.

  64. Nobody called your husband d a pedophile until you suggested that in our subconscious and it still remains so
    So stop playing around
    We too are smart people

  65. Let’s try to understand her statement and not take it the other way round, she never abused nor disrespected her husband

  66. Her initial statement is bad, I get her point but she should have been more meticulous in expressing her view

  67. Nobody called him a paedophile, you made a statement that portrayed him as such. I think you should apologise to your husband for embarrassing him on social media.

  68. Well I think she’s saying rubbish too because if my own wife say such to me I will slap her face, that’s rubbish saying now.

  69. Trying to correct the bad statement she credited to her husband is meaningless. She had already made her mind towards her husband known to the entire world.

  70. Ma’am you words yesterday were very clear and you have very right to guide your dauther to avoid stories that touch the heart

  71. Oh no! The hubby is rilli goin to feel bad abt dis,she shud av made d statement in such a way dat no one will get hurt

  72. Trust is the Most important thing in a relationship, it’s a good thing to trust and even have full trust in your hubby

  73. We don’t want to say the truth. Butost of the Men who raped their daughter never looked like they ever will. Truth is that there is something seriously wrong with this generation. So to prevent is better than to cure

  74. Reading in between the line of what Morayo said about not allowing her husband bath their daughter one cannot but think she refers to him as a pedophile.

  75. always try to trust your husband. and even if you dont if he insists to bath his own daughter will you refuse him?

  76. Understand her But She shouldnt have made Such comment in public, you know this Our heart Is trick, people Must think negative,

  77. Hmmmm that is embarrassing for the man…no matter how bad a person is…he will never want to harm his children

  78. What she said is true,we need to be careful with the way we trust our daughters with their fathers.The rate fathers rape their daughters is high.

  79. You know how Nigerians are,you should not be using your husband as an example in your discussion,y you are right, we should set boundaries for our girl child

  80. you never said so do us a favor stop explaining next thing we’d see videos of your marriage online all to explain
