She made the revelation during an interview on 'Between Hours' on Asaase Radio 99.5 FM.
"I remember my first child, I was breastfeeding and normally I do breastfeed exclusively till the sixth month when it ends then I am done. So it was like the end to the seventh month, and I think that week, I was doing my first job. And I went on set and I think we were supposed to finish that last scene at 5 pm, and we waited until 11 pm," recalled Afaglo.
"A week after a colleague calls and tells me the director said 'you said you had to go home and breastfeed your child and because of that we are writing you off.' And it was a series. They wrote me out."
