Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers is no stranger to controversies as she is in the news again, although not for sharing raunchy pictures on social media this time but for a tussle with her one time lover, Mr 2kay over the paternity of her daughter.
Few days ago the controversial reality star took to Instagram to celebrate the first birthday of her daughter whose pregnancy and delivery she kept away from the prying eyes of the public. She penned a heartfelt lengthy message signed “mom and dad” to the child who she referred to as Alisha.
Just when questions of whose ‘dad’ started making the rounds on social media, singer, Mr 2kay also posted a picture of the little girl to wish her a happy birthday. He wrote, “Happy birthday to my sunshine, (Alisha is one today) daddy loves you so much. May God keep on protecting you and showering His blessings on you endlessly my little princess and you look so much like your big brother.”
Meanwhile, congratulations were in order for the reality star and the Bad Girl Special crooner on the rekindling of their love affair when the light skinned actress posted a cryptic message on her Insta-story suggesting that the singer may not be the father of her daughter. “Only a mother knows the real true identity of her child’s father, any other noise trying to stay relevant in the industry is nonsense,” she wrote.
Shortly after, Mr 2kay responded to Gifty’s message with a picture of him and Alisha and wrote, “Awww, when a true father loves his daughter, father and daughter.” He further wrote, “DNA too true to lie, way forward.”
In the midst of the back and forth going on between the former lovebirds, the question of who the real father of the toddler is remains in the lips of many.
