Popular Nigerian comedian, Seyilaw has opened up on losing his first child at birth in the United States of America.
Months after losing his second child at birth in the United States of America, popular Nigerian comedian, Seyilaw has opened up on the pain and how he was able to console his wife.
Speaking to Punch, he said, “I don’t really want to go into much detail because my wife is healing fast and I think it would be insensitive of me because I don’t want a situation whereby she would be reading all those things on the pages of the newspaper.
"I just want to tell people that it has been four years that we have been married and that was going to be our first baby. Just to let people understand how sensitive it was to us. For a woman who has had to go through the pain for over eight months only for you to discover that you are not going to be dancing around with the baby is so painful. I don’t want to get too emotional but I think people would understand if I don’t elaborate on what went wrong." he said.
However,when probed further, Seyilaw said "It is an experience I don’t want to share but at the point when we lost the child, I could not talk to my wife because as of that time, I had a lot running through my head. I was wondering how I could console her. I am somebody who loves writing, so I decided to write something to celebrate the baby and make other people encourage me.
"I know that God is there and he would see us through but sometimes you are weak and you need somebody to pull you out of the gloomy mood. That was why I posted the message on the internet and a lot of encouragement poured in. It was so emotional, encouraging and soul lifting when you see people who you have not met tell you that they have passed the same road and they were able to overcome and mine would not be different. When you hear people pray for you, it makes you know that your case is in the presence of God and He is going to do something fast about it," the comedian revealed.
