Television show host, Bolanle Olukanni has opened up on how her recent accident has caused her to appreciate life more. Bolanle recently survived an accident where the SUV she was riding with a group of people somersaulted six times on the expressway. She took to Instagram to share how she came of the car without a single scratch. “Not one part of my body was affected, no injuries, no minor scratches or cuts. I came out like nothing happened. I can’t explain what it means to me to be sitting here completely whole and healthy after that accident”, she wrote.
In an interview with Punch Newspaper, the Moments host shares how her survival has made her understand the frailty of life. Bolanle said, “I have always pursued purpose and had a desire to fulfill my legacy. I have always been aware of how fleeting our time on earth is, but I think that accident really brought this to the forefront. It reminded me of how frail and fleeting I am as a human and the reality that today must be used well to love God and love others.”
Speaking on her spirituality, Bolanle said, “I don’t think the entertainment industry is superficial. It’s extremely vast and has amazingly talented people who are adding value to society. I love God and my faith is what makes me who I am. I am learning to use biblical perspectives to make all my decisions and guide me in my career. More so, I am becoming the person God wants me to be and that’s the most important thing to me.”
