January 29, 2016 – Why Genevieve Nnaji Gave Her Daughter Up For Adoption To A Childless Couple In Lagos After Father Rejected Pregnancy

Genevieve Nnaji’s Baby Daddy, Dotun Oladipupo ‘Acura’ Yet To Return 21 Years After

For those who do not know him, the biological father of Genevieve Nnaji’s baby is a socialite named Dotun Oladipo popularly called Acura by his people in Egbeda area of Lagos.

Before he relocated to the United States, the man was said to have impregnated Genevieve Nnaji at a tender age of 15.

She delivered her baby at 16 but Acura didn’t take up the responsibility of fathering Genevieve Nnaji’s daughter because of religious factor and his commitment to another relationship at that time.

It is now over 21 years, Acura is yet to return to assume the position of a father to Genevieve Nnaji’s only daughter.

Why Genevieve Nnaji Gave Up Her Child For Adoption When Her Father Rejected Her

The good news is that Genevieve Nnaji gave up the child for adoption when her father refused to forgive her for getting pregnant at such a tender age.

When she gave birth to Chimebuka aka Lily, Genny knew that embarking on that journey of independence with an extra load- a baby, wouldn’t be an easy one, so she began to look for an alternative, and that was how she met the man (name withheld) who had been married for some years without any fruit of the womb coming from his wife, and the man adopted Genny’s baby to enable Genny go into the world to hustle for survival, and that was it.

It may interest you to know that Genny’s daughter still lives with the man and his family in Lagos mainland, though she is now a third year student in one of the private universities in Lagos

She calls the man and his wife dad and mom. And what I cherish most about this whole issue is how Genny and the family that adopted her daughter had been managing to keep it cool, clean and free of drama plus media publicity. But then, why won’t the man be loyal when Genny had been helping to get him contracts because he is a contractor? In fact, Genny had been more than a blessing to the man. The man’s comfortable financial status today owes tribute to Genny’s fame in the Nigerian movie industry.

So if you think Genny is living and training her daughter, then you are very WRONG!

Why Genevieve Nnaji Is Yet To Remarry

Genny had confessed in previous interviews that the fear of ‘failing in marriage’ was the only reason she’s yet to marry. She’d been alleged to have dated Ayo Makun, D’banj, a former vice president, and the latest man to have been romantically linked to the screen goddess, Ishaya Bako, a 29-year-old film director and entrepreneur.

The two first met when, Genevieve relocated to Abuja from her Lagos house two years ago. Bako has allegedly involved Genevieve in most of his major business deals which include his vast real estate business in Abuja. Bako was also alleged to have funded and directed Genevieve’s latest movie, ‘Road to Yesterday’.

    That means Genny is childless because if you give your child up for adoption , you don’t go back to claim that child. Your parents not try at all for allowing you to give up your child because you made a mistake. I know they are very proud of you today because you are successful but they did not support you when you needed them most.

    You made the right choice for your baby and yourself. Most importantly, you gave the gift of priceless, endless joy to another woman. Better than harming the child or allowing her to grow up with the resentment of a mother who didn’t want her. God bless you all.

    I have always admired ladies who are determined to succeed by rising above their mistakes or circumstances. She is a strong woman. She overcame what would have become a limitation to many ladies, out there, by being focused. Instead of wailing and being discouraged—like some people would likely do—she devised an effective means to overcome her situation. I have respect for her because she learnt from that awkward moment of her life and henceforth decided to be a better and stronger woman—which is all that matters after all. Any one can make a mistake but We must make sure, no matter what the challenges may be, that we do not dwell on that. The past is passed away but there’s a glorious future ahead—she understood that. Impressive!

    This is a very sentimental situation for Genneviv , the couple and the daughter.My fear is that who.owns the daughter now.Was the adoption done legally? If yes Genneviv is no.longer the mother .so the earlier she starts having.other children the better.she is now 36 by my calculation.and she is dating a 29year old man.its better she has children for the man and marry him or look for a serious man to.marry and stop looking for money here and there because menopause sets in early these days.if the adoption was not done legally,am sorry the couple has no right over the daughter,they.just did humanitarian job and they will be left with no heiress to take care of them at old that case, they should quickly go to an orphanage and adopt two grown up.children who.will take care of them at old age and return Genneviv daughter to her immediately.Am sure the daughter will always pay them back in.future.This is Destiny personified!
