A former Big Brother Naija contestant , Alexandra Asogwa , aka Alex Unusual, has said that unmarried women who have babies deserve respect and not condemnation .
According to her , most of them didn’ t intentionally put themselves in that position .
Alex spoke against the backdrop of a stage play she is acting in as a baby mama .
On whether she would consider having a baby out of wedlock , Asogwa told Sunday Scoop , “ I hope to get married and have kids .
However , I don’ t judge baby mamas because many of them didn ’ t plan for things to be that way.
Most of the kids were born out of love.
They were , most likely, in love with whichever guy got them pregnant but maybe, things didn’ t later work out.
I feel we are supposed to give them the respect that they deserve because they have children . ”
Speaking on her experience preparing for the stage play ,
Man Enough , which begins showing today , Alex said , “This is actually my first time of being in a stage play .
It has been very taxing because it is way more difficult than being on a movie set .
If one is on set , one can have several takes but on stage, one has to get it right and show the right emotion .
I have been trying so hard to be mentally prepared for it .
I am handling it well and by God ’ s grace, it will turn out perfectly. ”
Alex also admitted that she was feeling nervous about what the reaction of the audience would be.
She added , “ I would not deny it ; yes I’ m feeling nervous .
I am worried because I’ m going on stage with people that have been doing this for a long time while it is my first .
I really don’ t know if I can keep up with their energy but I would put in my best and I’ m sure that after the first showing, I would be relaxed . ”
On how the project has stretched her , the reality show star said , “Firstly , it has adjusted my timing in a positive way.
I had to be at rehearsals early . Considering Lagos traffic , I had to wake up early and get there on time .
It has also affected my diction because I have to make my statements very clear . ”
