According to her claim, she vowed that such was the greatest challenge she ever encountered ever since she kicked off her quest.

In her words, she wrote:

“#TB to 2015…..


Thank Almighty God that we don’t look like what we have been through…

This was after the fire incident where I lost all my worldly stuff… I say worldly because they were just stuff.. I still had my life but I was so devastated that I didn’t know how to move on…I didn’t think life was important at the time..
JUNE 25, 2015….

I contemplated suicide in some moments…
Felt there was nothing left to live for…

The premiere of our series “DOGOOD” was days away and @africamagic, then @wangistar was the head said, ” you don’t have to show up, we will understand ” but something inside of me said, ” you are not staying down, you will go”.

They got me a Stylist to dress me & make-up was @lolamaja .

I remember the Stylist telling me I couldn’t go to the premiere with my hair like this, that I should expect backlash & criticism from the press….

Not one to be intimidated, I insisted on going like this….No one will tell me how to show up anywhere for an event that celebrated my craft..

Uncle John Obayiwana & his daughter @feeljeni gifted me the Gucci shoes on my feet.. I still have them and will wear them till they are tattered.. it’s mine after all..

I kept reading the book of Job in my bible all through the time I was homeless. It sort of comforted me…but I was angry with God and this was a real feeling…

I am sharing this to encourage anyone who feels they have lost “everything” and there is no hope left…

There is nothing that we will go through that God cannot bring us out of. I had to find my faith again..
I just had to be strong and know that He had better ahead for me.
He sent me help from so many unexpected sources.. hmmmmm

So when you see me dancing and happy all the time know that I have been through the fire and come out on the other side because God gave me beauty for ashes, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness & oil of joy instead of mourning..


In Christ alone, my hope is found.
