While Salami may believe he has good reasons for his standpoint, it appears not so many people share in his sentiments.

Taking to his comment section, some people showed support while others countered him.

Check out some comments below:


"No child deserves to pay for the atrocities of a parent. However, to live in deception is not to be encouraged."


"Every child deserves parental yourself emotional point though."


"If someone should now come and drag the child later in the future as the biological father nko?...I think it’s better to know early sha before u raise another man child throughout your life ooooo and they said blood is thicker than water it’s that time the child will learn the truth and go with the biological father(Anisoribu)let he who wants to do DNA do it..closure is importanter..ireoooooo"


"That’s his opinion, I respect that BUT I DO NOT AGREE."


"Stay Woke Kings!! If there’s ever a doubt do the DNA ✌️"


"So I will be working my a*s off to help my wife and her lover raise their children…Ndi intentional men kudos!"


"I expected more from this guy. Let me believe he's talking from the child's angle. The only person who should have saved such situation is the woman. Don't go sleeping with different men at same time. Don't get pregnant for A and then casting it on B die to financial or any stability."
