Nollywood actor and movie producer, Yomi Fabiyi has taken to social media to explain why he delivered his first son in South Africa.
In an Instagram post on Monday, October 19, Yomi Fabiyi stated that Nigeria does not feel like home, hence, himself and his wife decided to welcome their son in South Africa.
Taking to his Instagram page, the actor wrote that the situation in Nigeria forced him to plan his wife’s birth outside of the shores of Nigeria.
“Bring your ARMY, INTIMIDATION AND FEAR, I no dey buy.
I don’t have a mother again, bad governance made me accept that my first child is birth in ORDINARY SOUTH AFRICA but in another man’s name because Ibukun does not have SA papers then and too heavy to fly down to Nigeria for delivery.
I named him METOMI, in full OLUWAMETOMI meaning God knows what I merit just as if I know something may happen in future.
That is how we make nasty decisions due to the failure of government.
My son will come back, whether I am dead or alive, I just believe.”
Yomi Fabiyi continued;
“For this struggle #endsars, I am ready.
Those killed were buried with a cloth and that they will wear forever.
I began my campaign with a single outfit. I sleep on the bare floor of Lagos Assembly gate or Lekki Toll Gate all night.
In Alausa, we were attacked with guns, matchet and so for the third time now, yet I return to same spot.”
In conclusion, he wrote;
“TO WHOEVER, BRING YOUR SOLDIERS AND BRUTALITY; I AM NOT BACKING DOWN UNTIL YOU GIVE US DEVELOPMENT AND END BRUTALITY THE REAL WAY.
From the attached WhatsApp chat with my father, I already informed him of my imminent death, I am super ready.
If I survive and if I die, it is what it is, guys fight on and win a new Nigeria.
I know one day my son will return back and meet a New Nigeria I sacrificed for.
And if I make it, I will have just little to say(tears). I love you son, Metomi Moyinoluwa Fabiyi.”
