Famous Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham, has unraveled in an interview her spirituality and the circumstances surrounding her birth.
Toyin Abraham disclosed that she was born a stillborn baby and her parents threw her away. Delving further she explained that her parents had told her that it took the intervention of a clergy man from Ibadan who came to the hospital and asked about her and it took the spiritual intervention of a cleric to resurrect her.
“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. 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 that instructed them to cut it off because I didn’t want them to do it.”
Toyin said she has a small circle because there was too much noise in her head and always noise around her, both positive and negative which has made her a free person with a free heart that one can trust with anything and feel free to do anything around.
