Popular singer, Banky W has come out to share the sad experience of him and his wife, Adesua Etomi, losing their twins. He recently revealed this during an interview with the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, losing their twins years ago was a very terrifying experience because he and his wife actually saw their babies decaying and dying in her womb, which led to lots of tears and emotional breakdown.
He added that Adesua is one of the strongest people he knows, but he had never seen her so frail and in so much pain, emotionally and physically, so he just thank God that the storm is over.
His words, ”We went back to the hospital for the scan and not only did we not see heartbeats, the embryos were shrinking. They were decaying and they were dying. This was towards the end of the first trimester. It was a tough time.”
“When we found out we were losing them and we had to do an evacuation, it was a very emotional time and she cried.”
“Let me tell you, women are stronger than men. Crying is not a sign of weakness, but as a man you know you have been raised to be like you are the man, you have to be strong, you can’t shed a tear.”
“So she is feeling a certain way and I am trying to be there for her and I am just there holding her and saying it is going to be okay.”
“But the day that we cried together was the day of the evacuation and evacuation is when they remove the dead embryos. We went to the hospital, we did the procedure and Adesua is one of the strongest people that I know but I had never seen her so frail and in so much pain, emotional and physical. For somebody like me whose love language is acts of service, its helping and fixing the problem, there was absolutely nothing I could do at that time.”
“We came home from the hospital and I remember I led her up the stairs and we got on the couch and I held her in my arms and we cried. I will say it again. It is okay to cry.”
