PR expert and wife of award winning singer, songwriter and producer, Cobhams Asuquo, Ojuola Asuquo, revealed that her first son was born visually impaired.
Speaking in an interview with Tito on the web show ‘My Jesus Experience’, she talked about a number of things including how she handled the news of her son’s impairment and how she has lived with it and even thrived.
The talk show was a frank discussion between two Christians about spiritual life and the challenges that come with it.
As the description of the show reads: In this episode, I have a conversation with a very dear friend of mine Ojuola. We have a very honest conversation about our experiences as Christians. In this first part, Juola and I talk about the Doctor’s visit that changed her life forever. She shares her story about finding Christ and growing spiritually. It is a refreshingly honest conversation that I believe many people will connect to.
Ojuola Asuquo was brutally honest about her pregnancy experience and her life in general. She said: “The elephant in the room in my life in the past six years is pretty much… So, I got married, and we got pregnant. My pregnancy was fantastic, I didn’t even know I was pregnant, found out I was pregnant, still wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms.”
She then continued and revealed that things took a terrifying turn a couple of months later, “Everything was so smooth. And then fast forward to four months after my son was born and the doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?’
“And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just starts palpitating.”
She said she questioned her faith then, but that she has since grown to be an even stronger Christian.
While her son, David, is visually impaired, he’s an accomplished pianist and has been living a very active life.
So perhaps we might even see a collaboration between son and father…that’d be awesome.
