The child Neglect claims
According to Akankwasa, she developed an intimate relationship with Gunter after they met at Namugongo-based Latino Bar in 2017 before conceiving a baby with him in December of the same year. She adds on that upon informing Beenie Gunter about the pregnancy, he advised her to abort the pregnancy but didn’t give her the money for the process thus deciding to keep the baby and after birth, the singer remained distant, cutting communication and not responding to her pleas of providing monetary support to help raise the baby.
“I realized in December (2017) that I was pregnant, so in January I told him that I was expecting. He told me to abort but he didn’t even give me money for abortion. But I decided to keep the pregnancy with hopes that he might like the baby after its born. But I called him after giving birth and he didn’t pickup, I then sent him pictures of the baby but he didn’t respond,” She revealed.
