Ogbodo was engaged in an interview with Maryjane Eze of Legit.ng, she explained that she is not disturbed about having a child as a single mother and marriage would be a blessing if she is able to walk down the aisle.
In her own words: “I’m very well happy about having a child as a single mother. So many of our women are depressed and looking old and haggard because of the issues of marriage and pregnancies. In Africa, we believe that it’s only a married woman that can get pregnant. In fact, that’s what our parents taught us and our grandparents taught our parents.
“Lot of us in Africa, so many families believe a woman is promiscuous if you have to get pregnant out of wedlock but to whose detriment really? To the girl’s detriment. So many aged, some are childless and many of them have entered menopause without kids because they were waiting for husbands to marry them first before they get pregnant. They were more concerned about what will society say about them getting pregnant out of wedlock. So many of them are depressed and dying alone and lonely and sad.”
