How I was thrown away as a still birth – Toyin Abraham
Popular actress and producer in Nollywood, Toyin Abraham, has disclosed that her parents abandoned her after she was born in addition to discussing her spirituality.
This was said in a conversation with This Day by the mother of one. She said that her parents initially abandoned her at birth due to a stillbirth, and it took the help of a clergyman to resurrect her.
In her words;
I’m extremely spiritual. One of the problems I had back then was that I didn’t listen to myself. I would hear the voice of the lord, and I would see it in my dreams, but I would still want to follow my flesh.
But ever since I started following the leading of the Holy Spirit, things have drastically changed for me and I’m extremely happy about it.
I’m actually dada, those people that naturally have dreadlocks from birth. Since birth, I have been spiritual. My parents told me that I was stillborn so they had to throw me away.
Then, there was a clergyman from Ibadan, who came to the hospital and asked about me and I was brought back to life. I was told that I never cried or did anything until the day of my naming ceremony.
It was the moment they named me Oluwatoyin that I started crying as a baby. Again, when they wanted to shave off my locks they had to tell me it was the holy spirit because I didn’t want them to do it.
I decided to have a small circle because there are too much noises in my head. There is always noise around me, both positive and negative. I am not a careful person. My heart is so free. I am someone you can trust with anything. You can do whatever you want to do in my presence.
