Famous Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham has shared the mystery of her birth and her spirituality.
Toyin, in an interview with Vanessa Obioha, spoke about her spiritual gifts, alongside other milestones.
The actress explained, it took the spiritual intervention of a cleric to resurrect her after her parents threw her away after birth because she was stillborn.
Toyin Abraham said: “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 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.”
“The actress who is happily married to her colleague, Kola Ajeyemi continued: “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 was too much noise 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.”
