“My father chose his new family over me” – Taymesan

Nigerian actor and presenter, Temisan Emmanuel popularly known as Taymesan, has disclosed that he experienced rejection from his parents, especially his father.

In a Tea With Tay podcast episode, the podcaster discussed his difficult upbringing. He disclosed that his mother and father were in a relationship from a young age and had him while they were adolescents, forcing his grandma to raise him.

Taymesan claimed that although his parents separated after he was born, he did at one point have a relationship with his father that did not work out.

The actor claims that his father later abandoned him by putting his new partner and family before him.

Taymesan said,

“My dad and mum were teenage lovers. They had me early. So, my granny had to raise me. My dad tried at some point. But the only time that he chose me, somebody got in the way. His new wife.

I felt rejection on the highest level. I felt that my dad chose his wife over me and has chosen her till today. And his new family.”
