Ojuolape Veronica Asuquo, the wife of talented singer Cobhams Asuquo, has opened up in a new interview that their son was born blind. She went on to share how her son’s blindness has made her closer to God.
Ojuola, a PR expert, got married to Cobhams Asuquo in 2010. A year later, they welcomed their first child on Nov 30th, 2011, in the US. It wasn’t until months later that she discovered he was visually impaired.
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.”
After the “smooth” pregnancy and an even smoother delivery that happened “under 45 minutes”, her baby was checked abroad and she was told he is OK.
