The 2002 Miss Ghana pageant Queen Shaida Buari has revealed how  her rough beginning forced her to be sacked from school for not paying her fees.

This, according to Shaida  was partly because her father was ‘absent’ in her life despite his riches.

“A lot of people thought we grew up with silver spoon in our mouth but I say this without disrespect, there were days we were sacked from school for not paying school fees. There were days we had challenges eating, because at a point, my parents weren’t agreeing on which religion they wanted us to be groomed on,” she disclosed.

Speaking on TV Africa, Shaida stated  that she has forgiven her father upon the insistence from her mother.

Shaida is born to Alhaji Sidiku Buari a business magnate and one-time top musician and actor and Madam Elizabeth Mirabelle Odonkor, who runs a successful bridal service for women in Ghana. She has two younger brothers and a sister, Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari.

According to Shaida, she is currently on good terms with her dad, who did everything to support her marriage.

“He is my father and I am his daughter. That love and bond can never be broken. But I always acknowledge my mom for getting us to where we are today. Because even though we struggled with his absence,  my mother always encouraged us to be respectful, to honour him, to love him despite his flaws. Whatever happened between mom and dad, she said it wasn’t your battle to fight,” she indicated.

Shaida Buari in her final statement advised single mothers to stop poisoning kids against their father because it can have very bad repercussions on the kids when they grow.

“And I will like to use this opportunity to advise single mothers out there to stop being bitter all the time.

There are so many single mothers who are angry and bitter maybe because the dad is not paying school fees or taking care of the child, and they are so angry and want the child to hate the father. That’s toxic. You are actually brainwashing the child to hate the biological father which is not right, no matter what the father did to you to get to this point.

At a point, I was angry at my father for abandoning us and my mom will always say let it go. Always learn to forgive. Forgiveness is her mantra,” Shaida added.
