Pierra Makena is one of the most well-known female Dj’s in the country-arguably even the most famous. But that doesn’t seem to be the thing that gives her biggest pride and joy.
That would be her daughter-Ricca Pokot. The Dj has spoken many times in the past about the apple of her eye, in particular, the beginning of the Covid-19 restriction period when many countries had to lock-down restricting air travel.
This happened when she had travelled to the USA and so she couldn’t see her daughter for more than a month. Since then, she has been able to dot on her daughter, sharing their cute moments so memorable on social media.
While Pierra might be open about her daughter and their relationship, she has never revealed the identity of the father, keeping that part to herself.
But it seems that while she has done a good job taking care of her daughter, she had her doubts about whether she could play the role of mother and father sufficiently.
“I thought Raising my child without the father will be disastrous only to realise we just panic and think we can’t do without a man’s help…yet we are capable and strong.”
In a recent post on Instagram, Pierra disclosed an insecurity that she had when got Ricca-that she couldn’t raise her baby girl without the support of a man in her life but later on realised that she was strong enough to do it.
She described the 4 years she has raised the her girl as the period that she has been most proud about in all her years.
“I’m soo proud of my years as a single parent than I have ever been in my life. I have become more hardworking…independent and super hero!!”
She also encouraged her fellow women to take heart and not force men who don’t want to be in their children’s lives.
“If a man does not want to be in his childs life…never ever force him……assume his position and raise the child for him.
STAY POSITIVE..GOD HAS YOUR BACK. The reason for my post you ask…? Coz people have been asking how i make it as a single mum and always happy and killing it… yes its coz i dont believe a man holds the key to my success and happiness.” said the DJ.
While Pierra might be doing well as a single mother, the science available shows that present and active fathers are very important for a child’s growth.
