Aisha, however, lamented over the pressure being mounted on her son who's only a year and five months old.

She said that sometimes after hearing such words from critics, she goes into her closet to cry over her little son.

In her words:

"People are asking why my son is not talking yet. That at his age he should be saying something comprehensive. He should be saying dada, mama, wee wee.
"One of the problems we have is so much pressure. What do they expect him to be talking at this age? Some of people saying these things don't even have children."
