I was stillborn and my parents threw me away -Toyin Abraham



Nollywood actress and producer, Toyin Abraham, in an interview unveil an aspect of her life. She mentioned possessing spiritual gifts.


In a chat with ThisDay, Toyin Abraham disclosed that she was stillborn at birth and her parents had thrown her away until a clergyman came by to resurrect her.


She 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”.


“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.” she said.

Toyin said, she had attended a Bible college because of her spiritual gifts to prepare herself for the position of a religious leader. She didn’t foresee been an actress.
