It could be agreed that Maa Tsuru was manipulated out her vulnerability but the love relationship between Nii Kpakpo and Maa Tsuru was such an unreasonable one built on lies, deceit and shamelessness.
Maa Tsuru who was mother to Baby T. and Fofo can tagged irresponsible and shameless. She was unable to properly cater for her children due to the burden of single parenting yet started an untidy second love relationship despite her first marital failure that kept her and the children in their present state of mess.
Nii Kpakpo is also a shameless, heartless, jobless drunkard; who took advantage of Maa Tsuru's state of loneliness. He was homeless, only to move in with Maa Tsuru and added to her burdens under the guise of being love with her. He was such an ingrate to point that he sexually abused Baby T (one of Maa Tsuru's daughters).
Maa Tsuru believed Kpakpo's lie of being temporarily out of his factory job, she also fell for the lie that as soon as he got his job back, he would be taking good care of her. In this wise, they began living together in an uncomfortable one room to the extent that Maa Tsuru's abnormal love led her to partition the single room so that her and Nii Kpakpo could be sharing privacy.
