The mother of one revealed that she was stillborn in a recent interview with This Day Newspaper and then explained why she kept her circle so narrow.
describing her birth and the peculiar circumstances surrounding it
She discloses much of her past and what she intends to do moving forward.
She stated ;
“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 lead of the Holy Spirit, things have drastically changed for me and I’m extremely happy about it,” she revealed.
“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.”
“You know I was in the Yoruba film industry and we do not really get paid. So when I came as a cinema producer, I had to use the little I have to produce what my money is capable of. So now that I have money to produce big-budget movies, I have to be intentional about everything. I have to get the best and that requires you paying the best money to get what I want. My production, for now, is top-notch because there is money to shoot and money to pay for the best,” she explained.
“A lot of people do not believe my age. I will be 43 by September 5.”
“I decided to have a small circle because there was too much noise in my head,” she said. “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. I’m someone you can tell anything to, you can be who you want to be in my presence. I won’t judge you. Anything you do in my presence, that’s where it ends.
“I feel I do the same to the people thinking they are like me but it has affected me in many ways so I decided to make my circle very tiny and I’m happy. These are people who genuinely love me even when I mess up… because I’m not perfect. Even Jesus drove out people who turned his father’s house into something else with a cane. Jesus was angry. So I’m not perfect, I will do things that will make you angry but you know a lot of people, once you are an actress, people hardly forgive your mistakes. Things that ordinarily they will take from others, when it gets to you, they will go on social media. Although one is expected to get a thick skin with these criticisms, when it happens too often, one needs to be careful enough.”
“The legacy I’m building now is to make a lot of stars. Yorubas will say ‘Afobaje’, meaning I want to be a kingmaker. I want to help people grow,” she emphasised confidently.
