9. TAYO ODUEKE “Sikiratu Sindodo”

The look-alike daughter of celebrity actress, Tayo Odueke is 20 years old and her mother has single-handedly raised her and we can say she is doing a great job.


The actress was once in an abusive relationship that left her with the status of a single parent. Omobutty, as she is fondly called, is a proud mother of two children.

The actress might have had rough times in the beginning, but today she has her children to give her some solace.


The light skinned actress separated from her husband last year after he brutally assaulted her. She is a mother of two beautiful kids.


After her much publicized divorce from Nigerian businessman and philanthropist, Olakunle Churchill, the actress has made sure to put her son Andre, first in everything she does.
Recall a while back, she made the headlines after she dressed like a man on Father’s Day in 2017 to spend time with her son. 2018’s Father’s Day celebration was a bit different but not without drama as she used the opportunity to celebrate herself while throwing shade at her estranged husband.

One thing is sure however and that is the fact that she is doing everything possible to keep her little son happy.


The beautiful screen goddess is also one woman who has not let her career get in the way of her mother-son relationship. She has an adorable son with her ex-husband and uses every opportunity to flaunt him.
These women may not have it all together but they sure have shown that nothing beats the bond between a mother and her child. Despite not having a support system, they are making sure that their children lack nothing when it comes to love and attention.
