In a new interview, Bisola Aiyeola who participated in the 2017 Big Brother Naija edition has spoken about the struggles of building a nuclear family as a single mother.
According to the entertainer, she has been unable to meet a man who is prepared to accept her wholeheartedly as a single mother.
Bisola Aiyeola stated that it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home.
“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter. I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that it’s not as beautiful as it sounds.”
Bisola also revealed that the COVID-19 lockdown not only drew her closer to her daughter but also gave her the privilege to discover her other creative sides.
“The sit-at-home situation just made me know my daughter better. We had more fun, cooked together. I also found out that she loves art; she also discovered that herself. She’s kind of finding art interesting, as we did lot of painting together. In fact, there were lots of bounding between my daughter and I, because in the last few years, there have been lots of ups and downs; she’s always going to school. It just brought us together more and that’s one thing I am grateful for.”
