Media personality Dennis Okari has responded to allegations that he is a deadbeat dad.According to him people say things without having facts to back it.
Speaking to Word Is on the phone, he said
I will not discuss family now, but at some point I will speak because so many things have been written about me, but people who say those things don’t know me well.
The question about me being a deadbeat is what has been said or what has been written, but a lot of it is not true. One day you will come to know about these things.
The public first learnt that Okari and ex-wife Betty are not co-parenting in July last year. The drama started when Okari called out Betty for exposing their daughter Ivanna on social media.
My daughter does not deserve the kind of publicity she has been getting. She deserves to grow up quietly and no one, including myself as her father, should interfere with her rights to privacy.
Betty took a subliminal shot at him, implying he is a deadbeat dad, while replying to a fan who was narrating how he was raising his children as a single parent.
“I have a son age 4 and a daughter age 2, their mother ran away and as a father, I took full responsibility to make sure my kids are growing up in a good environment.
And every day when I wake up I look at them, kiss them and I get motivated and the urge to hustle more so they won’t feel the absence of their mum,” the fan wrote.
To which Betty said, “I love this. Much love for you and your kids. I resonate with you because I’m all my daughter has.”
