Being raised by a single shaped me into who I am today – Omoni Oboli
Star actress, Omoni Oboli, has recounted her experience of being raised by a single mother.
The film star who opened up about her childhood and upbringing in an Instagram post on Thursday, said, she wasn’t born with a silver spoon and had to live in a ‘face-me-I-face-you’ home.
Oboli said her mother had to take side jobs in addition to her teaching profession to make ends meet.
“I wasn’t born with a silver spoon! My earliest memories were in a face me I face you home; raised by a single mom.”
“We always had more months left at the end of the money every single month. My mum had multiple hustles in addition to her teaching job just to make ends meet! (sic).”
The mother of three further said that her story should be a form of motivation for others looking to make it in life.
“I never visited the airport not to talk of traveling outside Nigeria as a kid,” she said.
“If I can get to where I am today, you can! Truth is I’m just getting started! You don’t have to like me but I will motivate you to succeed.”
“Life is one percent what happens to you and 99 percent what you do about it.”
“Change will start when you are honest enough to say to yourself, ‘I am sick and tired of where I am.”
