Sauti Sol’s Bien Aimé’s eldest brother, Melvin Baraza, decided to pour out his heart and opened up on how their father disliked him specifically and rejected and greatly resented towards him at a very young age and he grew up facing his rejection till age 17 when he was kicked out of his parent’s home.
Taking to his Instagram page with these dark and painful memories still lingering in his mind, Melvin tearfully narrated how he grew up not knowing what a father’s love meant and what it felt like since he was never showed love. His biological father was present but he treated him as an outcast.
However, this did not deter him from being the best dad to his 6 kids he showers with love every single moment. He went on to share a lovely photo of his adorable daughter hugging and embracing him from behind. That looked so cute and sweet. He understands what lacking a father’s foundation of love in a child’s life while growing up means, and he has stood up for his 6 kids by showing them love and bring ever present for them just to break the curse of rejection and to change the story.
“A father’s love is the foundation of his children. It is what they build on and are able to face the storms the world throws at them. What happens when a father chooses to be absent or is present but has no love towards the child? I grew up facing rejection and resentment from my father. I was fearful, felt unworthy and for the better part of my childhood longed for his affirmation, but it only got worse to the point of being kicked out of the home I knew at the tender age of 17. Today God has blessed me with 6 children whom I love with my life, an opportunity to break the curse of rejection and change the narrative.” Wrote Melvin.
