A positive father-daughter relationship can have a huge impact on a young girl’s life and even determine whether or not she develops into a strong, confident woman.
A father’s influence in his daughter’s life shapes her self-esteem, self-image, confidence, and opinions of men.
However, Radio presenter cum comedian Jalang’o has issued a stunning warning to fathers who like pampering their married daughters.
Speaking during his radio show, the funnyman said that Kenyan men should learn to let go of their daughters after they get married.
“Uyo ni bibi ya mtu ameolewa wewe uko tu kila saa simu tu bado unampigia kila saa mami mami kwanza wacha iyo jina na uwaze kumwita na jina lake learn to set them free,”he said.
The father of one further explained that the truth that most parents don’t believe is that someday their daughter will get married.
“My daughter umelala aje, huyo jamaa anakupelekaje?, the truth that most parents hawataki kuamini ni their daughter atatoka kwako , aende kuolewa na ataka na mwanamume mwengine, it’s avery sad reality wazee wengi hawataki kuamini”
Jalang’o went on to reveal that some marriages end prematurely because of the tight father-daughter relationship.
“Utasikia hapa wakisema baba ya msichana ndio aliharibu ndoa yetu na masimu ya kila saa, my daughter can we go for lunch today,Husikilizani na bwanako juu unampenda babako zaidi,”he said.
“Mtoto wako anafa kutoka kwako akijua anapendwa na pia usimpe kiburi ya kila saa akikosana na bwana yake anamwambia unajua kwetu unajua kwetu bado niko na room hakutakuwa na ndoa hapo.”
He further explained that it’s the duty of the father to support and advise his daughter on how to live with her husband.
