Sorry about the loss of your baby, how did you feel
when you heard the news?
It was not a news that came in a day because it was
a process. Actually, there was a diagnosis. We got the result and we were
hopeful it would change. Up to the time she went for the caesarean section, we
were still hopeful but we just want to thank God her life was preserved and God
kept her strong ever since.
I would say, she is the strongest woman I have ever
known not because she is my wife, but because she was able to recover fast
knowing full well I had to do little or nothing to console her which was why I
was scared. The fear in me grew because I was scared of consoling her. How
would I be able to hold her hands and say everything is okay, how would I look
into her eyes and say it will be alright and much more which was what drove me
to write on my Instagram page because I needed people to talk to me and let me
know how to talk to her. I just want to appreciate Nigerians who sent words of
advice, their condolences. God has been awesome with the family.
What exactly was the result of the diagnosis?
I cannot go into detail as to what happened because
I do not want to remind my wife of the pains she went through. We know the body
does not come back the same until God has done something new that could take
her mind off it. It is still a process as it is barely two months. It is tough
but I want to remain grateful to God for everything.
Knowing you were heartbroken, how exactly were you
able to console her?
After the whole thing, I was at the hospital with
her which was something that gave her strength because when she opened her
eyes, I was the first person she saw and she was able to hold my hands. The
only thing I was able to do was to keep praying. I can’t say my words were the
most comforting, but I think God had gone before me to comfort her because I
was not sure. I just kept telling her you would be a mother very soon and
people are going to celebrate you. Just allow this phase to pass and you would
know that God is awesome.
When the news broke, people said she lost the
pregnancy and not the child?
The thing is, what most people did not understand
was a caesarean was done, the baby was brought out alive and the doctors tried
to save the baby, but after about six hours, the baby lost the battle. So, it
was not miscarriage. After the birth, I had the baby in my arms. I heard the
baby cry. I remember I was in the theatre with them when they brought out the
baby and I fainted.
What are you most grateful for?
I am grateful for life, and for people. Aside the
fact that God has given me life, I am grateful that God has surrounded me with
people who are loving. I am grateful that I am able to provide for people and
my life and career is increasing daily. The fact that God has been there with
me, seeing me through all that happened.
What would you say to your fans?
God will keep blessing them, and keep them because
if God does not keep them, they won’t be here to support us. It is from that
blessing they are able to reach out into their pocket to support our business.
I thank God for them because it has been great and
awesome because it all goes a long way.
