    • According to the Joka Jok founder, raising a child from infancy alone is not a joke and it’s triple tough for a man to raise an infant with no knowledge.

Music producer and businessman Tedd Josiah took to Instagram to share the struggles of single-parenthood as a man.

Tedd gave a disclaimer that it’s harder for male parents than female parents as it involves learning on the job and still having to provide.

According to the Joka Jok founder, raising a child from infancy alone is not a joke and it’s triple tough for a man to raise an infant with no knowledge.

The process involves constant learning on the job and still having to provide.

He stated that in the past 4 weeks he fell sick and it dawned on him how hard it is to raise a child alone.

“We are all struggling to live, stay healthy, and put food on our children’s tables (some of us more than others).
Kindly pray for parents, whether single or not, whether moms or dads cause the journey of life and survival isn’t as picture-perfect as you might think it to be. ” Tedd wrote.

Joka Jok founder has been vulnerable with his followers over the past years since his wife Regina Katar passed away in 2017.

She left behind an infant whom Tedd has been raising single-handedly.
