The Nigerian artist, Adekunle Gold recently shared a part of his life story that has been a secret all his life. The singer poured out his heart on his Instagram page as he told his fans the battles and challenges he faced before gaining fame. He said he was a sickle cell anaemic patient who lived his life with pains because of the sickness.

Adekunle when he was an upcoming artist

He wrote: “It feels liberating to finally be able to share this part of my life with you, to finally be able to speak my truth. When I talk about how I struggled to get to where I am today, I need you to know that my struggle was real. I was born with sickle cell disease. It was life and death, it was physical, mental, financial, you name it and I went through it all. It was tough, painful, and frustrating. I lived with a sickness no one around me understood, I lived with restrictions all my childhood. “I wasn’t able to join some of the most minor child play and liberating activities like going out in the rain. The times when I insisted and rebelled against my parent’s orders and went out in the rain, I would end up having a crisis. The nights were painful and lonely, nights that no one could help me get through. It was just me, God, and my mind. The pains and shivers were unbearable. “They always came in the night, when my family had no means to transport me to a hospital. We simply couldn’t afford the constant hospital bills so I had no choice but to endure the pain. “My mum wanted me to be well, she did her best. She took me to all the churches she could find, I’m grateful for her because she saw a future for me. 

Adekunle Gold

“A future where no illness or sickness could hold me back from my purpose. From the life, I was destined to live. “Sickle cell disease took away my freedom, my childhood. I lost friends, a lot of them. Some didn’t understand the restrictions and rules I had to live by, some just didn’t want to deal with my Illness or thought it was a nasty or contagious disease that they could catch. I was a burden for some. Living with sickle cell is far from living a normal life. “One of the most intense crises I had was at the age of 20, I remember laying in my bed in the middle of the night asking for an end to it all. I begged God to take my life away because I couldn’t understand what I did to deserve the pain my body and mind were under. As usual with sickle crisis after some days, the pain subsided and God asked me; “That end you begged me for, do you still want it?” Of course, I said no and that’s when everything changed for me. That’s when I realized that I had been given another opportunity to live my dreams and to show those that mocked me that sickle cell anemia was never going to end me, that it was never going to hold me back from my dreams and aspirations. “My body caves in once in a while, and some symptoms come back but what this disease has taught me is resilience. Sickle cell anemia gave me hope, made me tough, gave me the discipline I needed to be who I am today, and built my character. I mean I went through a whole 5 weeks of back-to-back performances and didn’t fall sick. Grace. “My mind and body were challenged and I’m stronger, more determined, and ready to take on the world. I’m ready for Adekunle Gold Supremacy, I’m ready to live and enjoy the 5 Star life that I deserve, that my body toiled for. “I’m sharing my testimony with you because I hope that you can find strength in my truth. Some ailments hold us back but I’m thankful this hasn’t. I want to encourage you in whatever it is you’re going through, know that there is hope. You are strong and you must not give up. YOU CAN DO THIS! “Victory lies at the end for you just as it did for me. “If you know anyone going through any struggle, physical, health, or mental. Be kind, and show compassion. In fact, be kind to everyone, you just never know what they’re dealing with privately. Be supportive, be gentle, and love endlessly. “If you are a sickler, know that the disease does not define you. Don’t allow it to limit your dreams or cap your potential. Spread your wings and dream big! Hope to see you soaring in the big skies. “All my love.”

Adekunle Gold

It feels good to know that he was able to overcome it all and be the star he is today, which was why he wrote his story in order to encourage other sicklers and people out there to keep pushing and believing, because miracle is real and will get to them too. Congratulations to the star on his success story.

Mere Anyi Ebere

“Mere anyi ebere”, an outcry for God’s unfailing mercy has been released by Sister Elizabeth Ndubisi Eromosele.

The song is based on the Bible passage that it’s by God’s mercy that we are not consumed, his compassion never fails. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.

Indeed, his mercies never end. They are new every morning.

It encourages us to approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. This is a time of need.

According to Sister Elizabeth, “this song was born in my heart years ago but began to burn during the lockdown when I felt in my spirit that we are entering trying times and will need God to intervene on our behalf more than ever.”

Sister Elizabeth Ndubisi Eromosele, fondly called Aunty Lizzy, gave her life to Christ in her teenage years at FGGC Bida and believes worship is a secret to a close walk with God.
She always loved singing and worship but only when alone. She shied away from singing in the choir. Sister Elizabeth is a CEM Trained Child Evangelist. She is an optometrist from the University of Benin, an author of children educational and religious books and school administrator.

Sister Elizabeth’s worship songs are from a product of deep intimacy, fellowship and seeking after God, as it is evident in this new single.

It is the craving of a worshipper for deeper measures of the Holy Spirit and greater manifestations of His dimensions.

Sister Elizabeth serves as a children minister at a Centre of The Covenant Nation in Lagos Nigeria.

She is a lover of God, a worshipper songwriter and happily married to Elvis Eromosele. They have four amazing children, Jed, Jane, Jeffrey and Jessie.

“Mere anyi ebere” is available for download/streaming:
