1

In a team task on Thursday 12th of August, Angel told a ‘true-life’ story of the trials her mom went through before giving birth to her in an artwork that depicts being “unbeatable”.

In a story that tells of some of the challenges of teenage pregnancy, Angel told the audience about how her mom had her when she was 16 and about to go to college.

She narrated: “When she got pregnant for me, she thought she could handle it. I mean, it’s just a baby right? She was happy. Thus the yellow here at the beginning of the artwork.

“She was happy to have me regardless of the age. She tells my granny, ‘oh mummy I’m pregnant,’ but my granny goes ‘what will people say? You’re a woman, a young woman. You should be in college. You should be entering university like your mate, why would you want to keep a baby?

“So my granny tells her, ‘you’re going to get an abortion.’

“My mum decided to go for the abortion but unfortunately, I remained. So now she’s thinking about the different things that’s going to happen.

“During that process, there was a lot of slut-shaming. ‘You’re 16 years and you’re pregnant,’ which is a challenge faced by most teenagers in our community,” she narrated.

She went on to end her presentation saying that her mother pushed through hurdles and her being in BBNaija at 21 years is a sign that her mother did something right.

Her presentation made a lot of the other housemates emotional and some in tears as they came up to hug her and empathize with her.
