And they are drawing similarities between her and famous blogger and ex-beauty queen Linda Ikeji who had a baby out of wedlock after years of counselling ladies to remain celibate until they become married.
Grace Ajilore has been trending on Nigerian Twitter since Sunday night after she posted on her Instagram page her baby bump, with the caption: My Christmas came early!
Me & daddy can’t wait to meet our beautiful baby”.
While the post on Instagram has attracted a chorus of congratulations, commenters on Twitter are however, dragging her over her past posts that appeared to indicate that women should steer clear of men. But opinions are divided, with some saying she has been misunderstood.
One of her Ajilore’s sympathisers, Olori Abeke @olori_abeke recalled an old tweet by Ajilore, in which she explained that all her posts had been to advise women to be smarter and not to die ‘lonely deaths’. Olori tweeted:
‘ok i just went through grace ajilore’s page nd is it that some girls are allergic to being given good advise? she didnt even ask u guys to be foolish na..Example of what she tweeted to someone,i think she is just telling yall to be with men that treat u right.”
Another supporter @Hadassahh said: Grace Ajilore didn’t say don’t fall in love or whatever
She said “know who u’re giving ur time to, don’t settle, place value on urself & set standards.”
She talks about her man in her vlogs.I don’t know what all this ruckus is about now that she’s pregnant”.
