Grace Ajilore, vlogger and self-acclaimed feminist, has sent the Nigerian Twittersphere into overdrive with argument over her pregnancy announcement.
The blogger, who is known for her strong ideals on how ladies should be treated by men in a relationship, took to her Instagram page on Sunday to share a picture of herself clutching her protruded belly.
“My Christmas came early! Me & daddy can’t wait to meet our beautiful baby,” she wrote.
The development has since gotten many users talking on Twitter.
While a segment of Nigerians expressed their disappointment at the vlogger for conceiving outside wedlock, others came to her defence, arguing she was clearly misunderstood since she only advised ladies not to stick with men who treat them badly.
“Does feminism imply not having sex with men? FEMINISM is about equality… There’s a big difference between this and MISANDRY I still don’t see why y’all are making noise cos Grace Ajilore got pregnant I don’t get you guys Aswr,” a Twitter user said.
“Grace Ajilore never said she is a feminist or misandrist. Grace is just having fun on social media & telling you to use your head while dealing with men that don’t appreciate you, but because you don’t have sense, you’re mistaking it for hatred for men. I wish her safe delivery,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
Does feminism imply not having sex with men?
FEMINISM is about equality… There's a big difference between this and MISANDRY
I still don't see why y'all are making noise cos Grace Ajilore got pregnant
I don't get you guys Aswr https://t.co/wUPs9L91vF

Grace Ajilore never said she is a feminist or misandrist.
Grace is just having fun on social media & telling you to use your head while dealing with men that don't appreciate you, but because you don't have sense, you're mistaking it for hatred for men.
I wish her safe delivery.

Feminism isn't a gender war and I don't understand why people keeping dragging feminists when they get pregnant. Feminism has nothing to do with the interaction between the penis and the vagina. Linda Ikeji and Grace Ajilore have valid messages on how women should behave. pic.twitter.com/NEW0CyyL4y

First saw Grace Ajilore’s funny and relatable videos around 2015. Never heard her say don’t be with men. Always says don’t be with trashy men. Which is a fair message. Congratulations to her.

Lol Grace Ajilore said don't be with men that treat you like crap….She didn't say "don't have a man at all" yall need to chill🤦🏽♀️

Grace Ajilore was always catching cruise with videos and some set people starting seeing her as a PhD holder in feminism and the vice chancellor to Linda ikeji..
Now, your Miss lecturer is pregnant you are calling for her head.
Better call the police instead😂

This Grace Ajilore’s gist is just enough evidence that some people are not bright at all! Because she never said anything about not getting dick or having a man. She was simply advising some of you dullards not to settle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
— BAD BITCH01 (@b__iyiola) December 16, 2019
Is it this same Grace Ajilore or another one that told you not to have boyfriend??? 🤦♀️🤦♀️ Why do you people use your ignorance and join bandwagon to say rubbish?? pic.twitter.com/8yoc4QqfbS

I can’t believe grace ajilore is trending because her fake fans feel misled by her getting pregnant Lmaooo. Social media is crazy. Babe said she had a man in her videos. Which one is misled again

I am hearing of Grace Ajilore for the first time and I see how some of you are pained but the truth is, most of you are so broken (relationship wise) and anything to validate your pain and hurt will sound like heaven to you. You even lose your sense of discernment.

Grace Ajilore is both a reminder that most people online are hypocrites and also many more are out to misunderstand you and your content. Anyways, congratulations to the latest Baby Mama in town.

Linda Ikeji campaigned celibacy as her watchword , she FELL pregnant, Glory Osei was preaching feminist that hates men only to end up as being married. Now, Grace Ajilore that is always setting standards and wailing "Men are scum" is pregnant. The internet is a Wonder land
— Buhari's Prodigal Daughter (@johnnysleek) December 16, 2019
Grace Ajilore is pregnant
Linda ikeji fell pregnant
Glory Osei was actually married.
The men are scum gang are getting Knacked constantly.
Be your own person, follow your belief and don’t fall totally these social media stunt and clout chasers. B gd.
— Oyewole Michael 🇳🇬 (@Rolex7Michael) December 16, 2019
If Linda Ikeji, Grace Ajilore & Glory Osei are ur relationship/gender role models, that is ur issue to handle, not theirs, u chose them, u were not under obligation. They own their space & can say/do what they please with it, u own ur reasoning & can believe what u please with it

Grace Ajilore didn’t sha say men are scum. She said do not be with men who treat you like trash, who don’t care about you and who don’t treat you right.
Y’all carried it as men are scum because that’s how plenty of you are or that’s how the men in your life are.
— Chemical Brother 👌 (@chemicalbrodar) December 16, 2019
Grace Ajilore was dropping "Men are scum" bants & jokes so I dont get the fuss about her getting Pregnant. Some of us drop "NG Women are Frauds" bants but we know we cant do without Nigerian Women. The Game is the Game 🤷♂️

If you’re dragging Grace Ajilore coz you think her videos are bitter and man hating, there are two things involved-
-Your head is paining you, no oil, dry sense of humour.
-You were so desperate for anyone to validate your man hatred so you picked her as your Queen.
— Sansa Stark (@_Oroboghene) December 16, 2019
Grace Ajilore spoke ill of men that never had good intentions towards women
She never said “if you meet a man that takes care of you, you should throw him in the bin”
She only emphasized on how much being a woman is expensive and all.
— Chim🥵🐍❤️ (@chimskimilo) December 15, 2019
I can bet that 90% of the persons tweeting about Grace Ajilore don't know her, never watched her videos nor read her tweets. They're just following the trend. Sad.
— KATOR (@KYAQY) December 16, 2019
No one asked you to use Grace Ajilore & Linda Ikeji as your moral compass.
Meanwhile you probably have parents that have been happily married for over 25 years.
In the long run everyone is trash, find the trash u can either recycle or manage its deficiencies.
Life is simple🤷♂️
