A gospel singer named Olive Praise has said mothers who dress their daughters in bum shorts are sexualizing them and exposing them to danger.
He asked mothers to allow their ”children to be children” and stop making them dress indecently.
He tweeted: “Allow children to be children mothers. Most of you are sexualizing these children with indecent dressings and exposing them to danger.
“There is nothing hot about a 7 year old baby girl with a bum short as short as a mere pant on a crop top showing her stomach with a pair of sneakers. As if that was not enough, you will force a 16inch wig on her head and she’ll carry it and be looking like sango priestess. You want her to steal the show right? There! You got it! She will end up attracting so much attention that is so uncalled for.”
He added: “Children are naturally adorable. Dress her like her age and she’ll be sweet and appreciated. It doesn’t end in dressing, some of you go as far as bleaching their innocent fragile and tender skin. If you wanted oyibo you would have married oyibo. Allow children be the children.
“They are. Allow them enjoy their childhood with their innocence intact. Stop forcing adulthood on them. Stop using these children as an expression of who you are. When they grow up and continue on your footsteps, hope you won’t complain?”
