My Son Asks Why I’m not With his Father, ‘Wilbroda’ on Single Motherhood

August 13, 2018

Media personality Jacquey Nyaminde, known as ‘Wilbroda’ from her character on seasoned comedy show ‘Papa Shirandula’, has opened up about her experience as a single mother.

The Milele FM presenter is a single mom to an 8-year-old boy, Xolani, after an amicable breakup with her boyfriend.

“We both knew that it was the best decision for us and our son, and I felt at peace,” says Wilbroda.

According to Nyaminde, her son, whom she describes as “the greatest gift I have been blessed with”, asks her tough questions, which she faces head-on.

“He’s growing and he’s very intelligent, so sometimes he will ask why his dad and I are not together. That is when you wish you had some help to explain it to him. I do my best though and never lie to him. I want him to get the truth from me.”

“His father is actively involved in his life, so he is the first father figure. I also have very responsible male friends who are always there for us. In addition, I do my best to love, provide and discipline him when the need arises, besides praying a lot,” she explains.

On matters dating, Nyaminde says it is quite challenging though she is not in a hurry to date.

“At the moment, I am not in a hurry. Dating is challenging because you meet someone and later realise  you cannot even introduce him to your son. Every major decision I make revolves around my son. If it is not healthy for him, it is not healthy for me,” she says.

Wilbroda adds that she’s lucky and immensely blessed: “I love his character. He is kind, loving, intelligent and funny. I pray he continues to be like that.”
