According to her, she has only lived in Lagos, Ibadan and Osogbo which are all in Nigeria.

Her British accent was so clear like she was from the United Kingdom or had lived there for a long time.

The woman disclosed that she has two children, who are 20 years and 10 years respectively.

Furthermore, she said she works as a housekeeper as her husband abandoned her and their children, leaving her to cater for them alone since 2014.

The woman said that she was able to raise her children with the help of her parents.

She said:

“I've not been to the UK before. My accent is a gift from God. I have two children and it's been really hard taking care of them as a single with just a home-keeping job to bring food.”
