Nigerian actress Halima Abubakar says she used a false baby picture for her baby because the child was born premature.
Abubakar earlier announced the birth of her son, but immediately courted controversy after she posted the picture of a child that wasn’t her own.
Consequently she revealed why that happened.
“He will be discharged tomorrow from ICU. i didn’t post cos he was premature.God saved him.I just had to post this. For the people who didn’t see me, I have no close friends.I can’t show you a fragile child, I risked this just to post. @ruggedybaba update paddy mi.i Had to do this.Thank you. Besafe and stay safe.THE WORLD JUDGE WITHOUT KNOWING.I JUST HAD TO POST THIS AND HAVE A GOOD DAY,” she said.
Abubakar is well known for her starring roles in the Nigerian film industry.
