“She cried after reading the report” – Saidi Balogun denies abandoning his first daughter

Yes International Magazine has recently reported that Actor Saheed Balogun was cursed by his first wife for abandoning her and his first child. Reacting to the story, the movie producer and estranged husband of Actress Fathia Balogun said “I wasn’t the only one that was shocked when they published it. I believe the whole world was also shocked to read that kind of publication. Even the child they wrote about was also shocked. It was a blogger who only likes blackmailing that reported it. He didn’t even stop at that, he also sent it to all his Blackberry contacts. Then when Zenat saw it, she was just crying. My daughter called me that same morning she saw it, and started crying. “ he told reporters. Narrating further, he stated thus “She said, ‘Daddy, What’s all this? I saw something now that you have not shown me for the past 12 years. Is this the way this country is going to pay you back, instead of appreciating what you’re doing?’
”I told her, it was not like that, but that what she saw was the handiwork of some people who believed they had the power to blog, and they could post anything they liked. Let them go ahead and be posting their rubbish. The shocker was that a lot of people saw the girl acting in my movie recently. Did she fall from the sky to join the cast of the movie?
“The same guy who wrote that I have not seen my daughter in the last 12 years used the picture of myself , Zenat and Khalid in that same blog, a picture that was taken not long ago. That means somebody must be sick. Please, help me ask them, the public should also ask them what they want. We need to rest for God’s sake. The whole country is in disarray. They don’t write about that or suggest anyway forward. I keep wondering if there is no law in Nigeria again. A lot of these things are happening and we fold ours arms. Those doing this are blackmailers. They are only looking for a way of making money. And the same set of people are complaining about the president. That means if they are allowed to rule, definitely they will deceive us just like they’re doing now on their blogs.” He further said “Journalism is a very good profession and I believe as a journalist, if you see a story or you’re told of anything about somebody, you need to investigate before putting your pen on paper. And as a blogger, you don’t just jump to your blog and start posting what you didn’t confirm, and people will now start reacting. But special thanks to the Almighty God. Since they posted it, people didn’t even react to it because it shocked them. That’s why I keep saying, help me ask these people if there is anything they want from me. They should just voice it out, instead of embarking on cheap blackmail.” he concluded.
