Hailing from Lagos, Ibadan, and currently residing in Osogbo, Moroundiya’s remarkable accent left viewers astounded, with some suggesting she must have spent considerable time abroad or had British heritage.

In her statement, she clarified that her accent is a natural gift from God, acquired solely from her experiences in Nigeria.

Despite the skepticism surrounding her accent, Moroundiya shared her personal struggles, revealing that she has been single-handedly raising her two children since her husband abandoned them in 2014.

With her children aged 20 and 10, Moroundiya disclosed that she works as a housekeeper to provide for her family, relying on the support of her parents to make ends meet.

Speaking about her hardships, Moroundiya emphasized the challenges of balancing her role as a mother and provider with limited financial resources.

“I’ve not been to the UK before. My accent is a gift from God. I have two children and it’s been really hard taking care of them as a single with just a home-keeping job to bring food,” she said.
