Comedian Teju Oyelakin fondly called, Teju Babyface, was on Sunday, January 20, 40 years old.
To mark the milestone, the comedian took to his Instagram handle to share adorable photos of himself, where he rocked traditional attires.
In one of his posts, he disclosed that his life is just starting.
His post reads:
‘Half time! Now let’s do another 40, plus added time for past delays and set backs, l’oruko Jesu!’
And this… “My life is just starting, Giorgio Armani said “your 40s are the moment when you just start to become aware. It’s just the beginning. I have always believed to confirm your thinking takes time. It takes experimenting. You have to confront different chapters of your life” A sese bere ni”
For my birthday, my wife @tobibanjokooyelakin and I wanted only one thing above all the other things from God. Yes I wanted a new luxury car and a mansion and all other manner of stuff. But we desperately desired one thing above all those things. And then He gave us TWO just in time (wink, you know to what/whom I refer, right? ?) Awesome God. .
Please thank Him with me on this auspicious occasion. Oba el’eti gb’ohun gb’aroye, Oba to’n gbo adura (the Lord who listens and answers supplications). Whatever your age this year, I pray that the Almighty God meet you in the place of your greatest need and give you joy. Amen.
Recall that on welcoming his twins after 5 years, he wrote…
It wasn’t the easiest thing as no one ever really expects to get married and not have children when they want them. During our waiting period, it occurred to me that before I got married, I had never thought that having kids could be a challenge. Then I started to think of what I might have done differently if I had actually imagined it back then.
When I got into it, my foremost thought was that God would get me out of it. There were days when we just went with the flow of things and believed in God’s time and other days were low days. I felt like I was getting older and wanted the situation to be over. Really, people get married because they love themselves, not just to have children. However, these thoughts only come when one is feeling strong. When the days are low, other sentiments begin to creep in.
