Single parenthood is an oft-discussed topic and usually, it is talked about as a challenge that the single mother or father has to overcome when they are raising a kid or more.
Across the world, the number of single parents are increasing probably because of the rate of separations and divorces. Ghana is no different.
And just like the rest of the world, it is women who usually have to bear the brunt of single parenthood in Ghana. This is especially difficult because women are often left behind by society in the acquisition of material and economic means.
But in some special cases, some Ghanaian women have prevailed despite being single mothers, or what has been interestingly called, "born ones".
YEN.com.gh brings you a list of "born one" women who have made it against the odds.
1. Nana Aba Anamoah
Unconfirmed reports have it that Nana Aba Anamoah is 40-years-old. She looks younger but that does not matter because she is on top of her profession despite being a mother.
The single mother has a son, Paa Kow, who is now a university student in the United States.
2. Caroline Sampson
Caroline Sampson has a toddler for a son but the 30-something-year-old media presenter and businesswoman seems unfazed. She is easily one of the most liked single mothers in Ghana.
In 2018, Sampson narrated challenges she had with her health. But it seems the presenter is back on her feet and ready to reign again.
Mzbel may never hit the heights of the early 2000s again but it cannot be challenged she was a trailblazing musician.
The musician has a young son whom she has successfully kept hidden from the rest of the world. But Mzbel seems like a woman doing an amazing job.
4. Jackie Appiah
Jackie Appiah is an award-winning actress who is also known for her sense of fashion and liking for designer brands. But she is also a thriving single mother.
Appiah is separated from her child's father but that has not stopped her from riding high on our screens.
5. Emelia Brobbey
Emelia Brobbey is one of the most followed Ghanaian actresses on social media. And just like Appiah, she is also a divorced mother.
Divorce and single parenthood have not stopped the actress from being an amazing actress and show host.
