“We Were So Poor…” #BBNaija Ifu Ennada Shares Touching Story From Her Past
Evicted Big Brother Naija housemate, Ifu Ennada shares yet another touching story from her past. This time, she writes on how her 4year old brother died right in front of her because they couldn’t afford healthcare and how her family once relocated to the village because of unpaid rent.
Read her story below:
My name is Iheme Faith Uloma Adanne, popularly known as Ifu Ennada – The Ifu Ennada. As a child I always had massive dreams, but the challenges I experienced “so many times” were overwhelming that I contemplated suicide several times and lost myself along the way… I remember when I was 9yrs old, my whole family moved to the village, while my dad stayed back in Lagos to hustle… Our rent had been long overdue and the landlord could only but kick us out.
It was a terrible time for me, but what was more terrible was helplessly watching my 4yrs old younger brother die in front of me – in my mother’s arms, my mother who would have given her life in exchange for his. We were so poor, that even there in the village we couldn’t afford average healthcare… Instagram would be unable to take record of the number of times I was abused in a number of ways… My life’s journey has been one tough but inspiring one. For each time I was down, God always came through, in form of His Word, but most importantly in the shape of people – good people who remind me that humanity is BeautIFU! and that the world isn’t evil.
These good people include all of you reading this, all of you who would never give up on me. All you wonderful people who care about me in ways I can’t imagine. Coming out of the Big Brother House, I didn’t know such massive love was awaiting me and now as I am set for what’s coming, I want you all to know that I am who I am because of God and you. I don’t take you for granted and my love for you will always be never ending.
