Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tolani Otedola has revealed that she has been dealing with an ailment for over a year now.
The daughter of Nigerian billionaire, Femi Otedola, stated this in a post on her verified Instagram page.
Tolani revealed that the treatment of the ailment has affected her appearance and confidence. She however reassured her fans and well wishers that she is well on her way to recovery.
According to the 35 year old, she struggled with social media shyness for over a year. She went as far as stating that she had been “ life shy” too. Otedola then revealed that she was then diagnosed with a condition but did not state what condition it was. She informed that this period was the toughest season of her life. But thanked God and “some really special people” for helping her make it through.
Furthermore, she assured fans that although there have been a few after-effects of her treatment, the worst of the storm has passed. She cited one of the effects as affecting her confidence and weight. The songstress spoke about the music industry, stating that the high value it places on appearance, did not help matters.
Feeling grateful for how far she has come, she wrote “I fought with all my heart to be here, and I’ve been feeling quite down that this one ridiculous thing is keeping me hidden. I’m alive! And what a blessing that is, especially in a season where so many people lost loved ones.”
In an eureka moment, Tolani Otedola stated that she finally understood that to “stay self-conscious about my outer appearance, is to undervalue my inner healing. it’s an injustice to my mind, body & God-given creativity. To look in the mirror and be embarrassed about my scars is to disregard how I got them and belittle what I’ve survived.” (sic)
The songstress then thanked her friends and family for reaching out to her and sending her words of encouragement. She further assured that she is slowly making her way back to making music as she loves it.
