Why I kept my pregnancy off social media-Tboss


Tokunbo Idowu, former Nigerian reality TV star better known as Tboss, says she kept her pregnancy a secret because she was afraid of exposing her happiest moment to the negativity of sad-minded people.

Some weeks ago, there were rumours on social media that the former BBNaija housemate was pregnant but Tboss had made no official comments to either discredit or confirm the speculations.

She, however, took to Instagram on Monday to confirm the initial rumours about her pregnancy; announce the birth of her new infant, and thank loved ones who played a role and stood by her during the course of childbirth.

She also said the journey to childbirth has been a rollercoaster for her.

According to her, it made her ecstatic because she was left constantly trying to get a grasp of how fast her body was changing, yet, stay sane for the good of herself and her child.

“Our generation is always so eager to have us post our private lives on Social Media. We get good news, social media. Not so good news? social media. Someone offends us, someone owes us money, breakups, new home, new car, new shoes, fake designer shoes, borrowed stuff. There’s no mystery anymore,” she wrote.

“You wanna know about a person? Just look up their SM pages and you’d get a pretty close picture of whom you’re dealing with. I agree I’m not exactly a social media compliant but I’m also guilty of, sometimes, putting more than I ought to have out there, thereby subjecting myself to being misinterpreted, misquoted, misunderstood and highly misjudged.

“And that’s why it was extremely difficult for me to keep my pregnancy all to myself. I mean it was, without doubt, the best news I have ever had and God knows I wanted to shout it out so as to be heard to the ends of the earth but I had to…

“Not because I was ashamed or nothing of the sort. I was afraid. I was afraid of exposing my best news to the negativity of little and sad-minded people. I wanted to enjoy this journey; savour every little moment; understand what was happening to me, my body; and keep my sanity for my good and the good of my unborn child.”
