“I’m extremely spiritual. One of the problems I had back then was that I didn’t listen to myself.

"I would hear the voice of the Lord, and I would see it in my dreams, but I would still want to follow my flesh.

"But ever since I started following the lead of the Holy Spirit, things have drastically changed for me and I’m extremely happy about it.

“I’m actually dada-those people that naturally have dreadlocks from birth.


"Since birth, I have been spiritual. My parents told me that I was stillborn so they had to throw me away.

"Then there was a clergyman from Ibadan who came to the hospital and asked about me and I was brought back to life.

"I was told that I never cried or did anything until the day of my naming ceremony.

"It was the moment they named me Oluwatoyin that I started crying as a baby.

“Again, when they wanted to shave off my locks they had to tell me it was the Holy Spirit because I didn’t want them to do it”, she said.
