Nollywood actress Etinosa Idemudia recently took to social media to address the issue of emotional blackmail by African parents.
In a post shared on Twitter, the actress expressed her concerns and questioned the reasoning behind such behavior.
“African parents need to stop the emotional blackmail tbh,” she wrote. “I raised you, I sacrificed for you. I don’t understand, who brought me here in the first place? Who put me in the position to need sacrifice. Kanayo Kanayo?”
Etinosa’s statement sheds light on the common practice of guilt-tripping children by emphasizing the sacrifices parents make for their upbringing. She questions the rationale behind this emotional manipulation and highlights the responsibility parents have for bringing their children into the world.
