Nigerian rapper Illbliss revealed how his wife went through trying times during her eight years of barrenness.
Tobechukwu Ejiofor, popularly known as Illbliss, revealed that his wife had been childless for eight years. During this period, he felt incomplete. He explained his feeling to media personality Chude Jideonwo in an interview with them on Sunday where they shared clips from it online. The rapper said:
“It was incomplete. This is why you must marry your friend. My wife’s name is Munachiso and it means I work with God and my God is always by my side. Sometimes she’ll be like, ‘Babe why are we not panicking? Why are we not having anxiety about children?’.
“It was a long wait. I got married in 2009 and I knew I was doing the honorable thing. The plan was to get married, raise a family promptly and take care of all of them.
“So the first year came, second year, third year, fourth year, fifth year. Some of the friends that I was part of their groomsmen or we did collectible groomsmen had gotten married, their kids had come. Even the guys that were groomsmen for my own wedding had gotten married and kids were popping up from all around us.”
Illbliss said that people tried to make him and his wife anxious by introducing them with preachers. But according the singer, he realized how much faith can move mountains when it came down from being introduced or deciding on adopting a child later in life. He said;
“We were happy. We weren’t even saying our rosary let alone having to run around for things but we stayed with God.
“I’ll be honest with you, at some point, we decided to adopt. We said we would take somebody’s child and raise at least show them so much love and as soon as we had spoken about that, wifey took in like two months after then.”
The rapper was overjoyed when the doctor told him that he would be a father. “Then our daughter came and we called her Sochikaima which means it’s only our God that we know. God did it for us,” the actor said.
