Legendary musician Nyashinski’s wife Zia Jepkemei Bett has opened up on why they opted to keep their child’s identity away from the limelight.
It’s almost a year since the couple welcomed a baby boy together but have never shared his photos online just like other celebrities do.
According to her she is okay with keeping her baby out from the limelight to avoid unnecessary trolls.
“Social media is crazy, you can get criticism, bullied. Your kid could just be sitting there and people attack him just for no reason so I think that is our personal choice,” she said.
She further noted that it’s a high time celebrity mother kept their personal issues private and if they decide to publicize then they have to accept the criticism without complaining.
“I would say, protect your unit, protect your family. Because at the end of the day, these are strangers, you don’t know them. They are strangers they don’t know you but if you put yourself out there, then expect it and be okay with it.” Zia said.
The fitness and fashion star further stated that she always wanted to be a mum and knew the responsibilities that comes with it.
“I have always wanted to be a mum, I taught Sunday school for a few years at Nairobi Baptist. It has been amazing watching my son grown.
“I definitely have more compassion for my mum because I understand the love she has for me now.”
During the motherhood interview with YouTuber Just Angie, Zia also talked about the challenges she faced after delivering her baby.
“My pregnancy was not bad at all, the challenging part came after giving birth, no one tells you how challenging it is. It is a lot of work, it takes a lot of patience. “
“My sister and I were pregnant at the same time, we are two months apart. It was great to have support from her. It was her first baby as well.“
The rappers wife concluded by advising fellow mothers to accept themselves and have time for themselves.
“Every journey is different for me, I chose to keep my personal life away from social media. I would like my son to have a chance to choose whether he wants to be on social media or not.”
