EXCLUSIVE: Brown Mauzo on growing up with a single mother, to having baby mama challenges
Musician Brown Mauzo, known for his past relationship with socialite Vera Sidika, has candidly shared the struggles he faced being raised by a single mother and the complexities of parenthood with multiple baby mamas.
Mauzo exclusively told Nairobi News he’s yet to meet his biological father and expressed a desire to be actively present in his children’s lives, drawing inspiration from observing successful families with happy children.
The father of five, with children named Princess Asia, Zulfa Brown, Hakeem Mauzo, Lareesa Brown, and Prince Ice Brown, spoke openly about the challenges of co-parenting, particularly in the aftermath of his separation from Vera Sidika.
“I had never anticipated to have kids grow without me around, but it keeps happening. I always want to raise my kids with their mother. I am not perfect, but when you get tired of each other, the separation happens. The kid will not be complete. Both parents are very important in the life of children,” Mauzo explained.
When questioned about child support, Mauzo revealed that some of his baby mamas have not allowed him to contribute financially.
Despite his efforts, he said he has encountered resistance.
“I wish I could do that, but I was trying those close to my baby mamas, like even involving the brother and the nanny, but they told me it was not possible. They put me away.”
Discussing the challenges faced by men in co-parenting scenarios, Mauzo highlighted the difficulty of navigating relationships with baby mamas after breakups.
He emphasized the importance of allowing fathers to be actively present in their children’s lives, acknowledging the subtle challenges faced, especially when the child is young.
“Baby mamas, you expect them to be different until the relationship fails. That is when you will know they are the same. The greatest challenge is to raise kids in a broken marriage,” he added.
