Femi Afolabi-Brown, husband of the TVC presenter, Morayo Afolabi-Brown, who has been bashed for saying she cannot allow her husband bathe their daughter, has defended his wife.
But Brown spoke after his tearful wife had apologised to him on television.
The presenter’s husband appealed to the public to get the message of his wife right and not turn it around.
He said: “You need not fret about what my wife said on TV. My wife never in any way suggested I was a child molester. She stated her trust in her husband, then said she wouldn’t allow her husband bathe her daughters. Then the most negative of souls twisted her statements and ran with it. But if you notice, the enlightened ones among the commenters understood her message and agreed with her.
“Well, here is my take. I tell my daughters never to let any man put them on his laps, or touch them in certain places, or hold them in certain ways, or even see their nakedness. I personally extended those rules to myself to reinforce the teaching.
“That is the modus operandi I have chosen in raising my own daughters. My wife merely spoke on TV as if she made those rules. Her mistake. In a nutshell, as long as my wife or a female person is available, I shall never bathe any of my daughters.
“Why should I, for God’s sake? Others can be doing that in their own houses, but not in my house.”
