“Do all you can about my child now that I’m alive” – Kuchi Kuchi hitmaker, Jodie cries out about his physical challenged child


Ace Nigerian singer cum songwriter, Joy Eseoghene Odiete professionally known as Jodie has opened up about the challenges she had while raising a physically challenged child with special needs in Nigeria.

The Kuchi Kuchi crooner, whose 6-year-old son, Chinua has cerebral palsy, unleashed in a heartfelt post that her son’s predicament was caused by the hospital where she gave birth to him.

According to the mother of one, who disclosed how her son’s condition has affected her finances, many have advised her to kill the little boy.

Jodie noted that she’s had to do all sorts of jobs to provide for her child, but the high cost of child care absorbs all of her earnings.

Jodie wrote:

“My finances have been swallowed. My friends have abandoned me because I’m a beggar. My debts are new every morning.” 

Jodie said that just like her, other special-needs parents have suffered alone for too long because they have been ashamed of the stigmatization.

She urged the government, non-governmental organizations, and other authorities to create a “permanent solution” for special needs children’s care so that parents do not have to go bankrupt to care for their children.

In her words, she wrote:

“My head is heavy. My eyes hurt, because I cry every night. Don’t wait for singer of Kuchi Kuchi to die first before you do a memorial service while her child is left to suffer. Do not spend a dime when I’m dead. Do all you can about it now while I’m alive. I beg you Nigerians.”
