Nigerian comedian Buchi, also known as Onyebuchi Ojieh, has once again expressed his frustration with his estranged wife’s family in an ongoing custody battle.
Taking to his Instagram page, the comedian revealed that his former in-laws are insisting on exorbitant payments before allowing him to see his daughter. He described this demand as being related to child welfare and reluctantly agreed to it. However, they are now asking for even more money.
Buchi stated that his interactions with his daughter have been limited by his in-laws, reducing his communication from twice a week to just one video call, and now to voice notes. To exacerbate the situation, they consistently block him after each call until he yields to their demands.
“Mr n Mrs SALAMI .. wake UP!! U people asked me to pay to have access but it’s “child welfare “.. that anything I have I should pay first .. i paid the money .. una say e no reach more access is more money abi? 2ice communication a week is now 1 video call then vn abi? u can only call with ur fone .. u block me after every call until I don beg abi?

In another post, he expressed how tired he is of being strong
“My lovely child .. am tired of being strong .. NO FORCE IN THE WORLD WILL STOP ME.. The storm is coming .. I need to know why I can’t talk to my baby”.
