A woman identified as MamaGold with the Tiktok username @uchennatricia has sent the internet buzzing after taking her 5-year-old daughter into the water to celebrate her fifth birthday.
According to MamaGold, her daughter was ill after giving birth and someone introduced her to ‘umo mmiri’, the god of water who gave her the child.
In his words:
“I almost lost this girl after she was born, I never knew she was a given girl, I was busy doing her hair and she was busy planning to come back until I took her somewhere and they told me what to do, and I did it, I also went to the water for her sake, my baby automatically got well, life is a mystery.”
In reaction to this, netizens took issue with the law, as many claimed it was denying the girl her rights to free choice and also presenting her with a future stigma problem.
@rive2222: “To each his own. If that’s what she believes, she lets her be. Her beliefs, her son. Ongafuniyo kayekele mani”.
@taogebeauty: “Please don’t let anyone bully you into not going your way…we are Africans and we have a tradition that our colonizer Hv made to be seen as evil…post it!”
@leppgoldd1: “Abiku, I pray that she lives long and takes care of you, please do what she wants, please don’t make her sad.”
