My tribal marks drove the father of my child away. ‘He made us meet only at night’ —Alabi, Nigerian model

...Speaking on the pain her tribal marks had caused her, she said some strangers had told her that she was ugly. “Sometimes when I walk on the road, people would drag me, only to tell me I am ugly but I always ignore them because some people defend me,” she said.

The model further revealed that her tribal marks ended her relationship with the father of her child because he was ashamed of walking with her in public.

She said, “One of the reasons the father of my child absconded was because of my tribal marks. He could not be with me in public and he only made us meet at night; we dated for some months in 2008 and I got pregnant in 2009. I bore a girl for him and she will be nine years old this year.

“I felt I was the ugliest girl in the world. I got fed up with relationships because men didn’t always want to go out with me during the day; they would prefer to be with me at night. There was a guy I dated for two years and that was the condition of the relationship, so I had to endure. “My mum died when I was four years old, so I grew up with a single dad. When I got pregnant, I had to run away from home to a foundation that accommodated me.”
