Governor Mike Sonko’s daughter has not been served with butter and milk in her past relationship. If anything it was but a battle field for her.
She has previously referred to her violent relationship with ex-cum-baby daddy, Ben Gatu without giving finer details on it.
However, during an Interview with Radio Jambo’s Massawe Japanni yesterday, she shared her agonies with the world.
Young and naive would best explain Saumu when she ventured into the drama-filled circles of love relationships.
The mother of one emotionally recounts:
When I started dating Ben Gatu, I was young and naive. I ran for the marriage life right after graduation, when I was only 21. I was warned against running for that married life but I thought I knew better. However, I wouldn’t advise anyone to stay in a toxic relationship where you cry often or being beaten. Do not allow violence in your relationship.
Because this was her experience:
There was violence when I was with Ben Gatu. I first shared it with my friends and when it became too much, I ran to my father and asked for forgiveness because I did not listen to him.
Unfortunately, this was that time in life when parents let their children experience the hot waters of life to learn practical lessons, rather than through consistent word of mouth.
But just like the prodigal son, her dad welcomed her back into his arms soon after she returned home repentant.
He is a father, he sat me down and asked me what my plan is after what I went through and asked me what I’ll do now that I was going to be a mother. Find a father figure for your child. I would not advise a single mother to be confident in that because there is something a child will be missing. Even if you’re not with your baby daddy.
