Nkechi Blessing Falegan, a Nollywood actress, has stated that she is not ashamed of taking on the role of breadwinner for her family.
She made the revelation on Saturday, one month after her mother died, through her verified Instagram account.
The actress lost her mother a few days before her mother’s birthday, and she was buried last week.
Following the funeral, the Nollywood actress traveled to the United Kingdom to be reunited with her husband, David Falegan.
In her recent post, Nkechi wrote about her grief and promised to keep on fending for the family.
She said, “Exactly one month today, I lost my best friend. 23_09_2021 is a day I will never forget in a flash. Mummy you were my backbone.
“I remember you called me on the 19th and said a short prayer that touched my soul. Did you know you would leave 23rd? Only God knows but I promise to keep up your legacy.
“Mummy, a lot of people had nice things to say about you. I am proud to be your child Afianma. Yes you are gone but never forgotten.
“You taught me how to hustle like a man, hence the reason a lot of people doubt my age, because I look older due to hustle and bustle.
“I took all the insults on the gram just so you don’t lack anything. I was useless for weeks when you passed. But you said to me ‘Nkechi, stand up. Don’t let my family name go down like that.’ I have a large family to take care of.
“Yes, I am the bread winner of my family, a title I am not ashamed nor afraid to carry. Because for years, I have carried it diligently and made sure both my extended family lacks nothing.
“Not like I have it all together but God somehow manages to bless me to be a blessing to everyone around me.
“Funny how the UK visa I applied for months back came out just a day after you passed; meaning you want this man for me.
“You said it yourself, ‘Nkechi, no leave this man, na better person. No matter wetin him do, stay with am’
“Mummy thank you for the real life lessons. I will never be the opposite of who you brought to this wicked world. I LOVE YOU till we meet to part no more
“Please, my last request: don’t let these people get me. Abiamo okun ma sun. The God of orphans, please, don’t forsake me.” (sic)
