Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham, has revealed the circumstances surrounding her birth forty years ago.
According to her, she has always been a very spiritual person. She would hear the voices of the lord in her head while growing up, but she won’t listen.
Since she discovered they were voices of the lord and listened to them, things changed drastically for her.
She mentioned that she had ‘dada’ from birth, which means she naturally had dreadlocks from birth.
She further stated that her parents mentioned to her that she was stillborn when they gave birth to her, so they had to throw her away, but a clergyman found out about her and resurrected her through spiritual means.
She was told that she did not cry till her naming ceremony day.
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 lead 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, 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.”
