Singer, Tolani Otedola Opens Up On Her Absence On Social Media

Nigerian singer and billionaire daughter, Tolani Otedola, has come out to reveal why she has been off social media and the music scene for a while.

Tolani Otedola, revealed in a lengthy post that she was diagnosed with a condition last year and she had the toughest season of her life but thanks to God and people around, she was able to pull through.

According to her, the treatment of the condition had a toll on her body physically, meanwhile the music industry puts premium on the people’s appearance, making her lose the confidence to come out.

She wrote “For over a year now, I’ve been social Media shy…. life shy if I’m being honest. Last year I was diagnosed with a condition & it was the toughest Season of my life…. But with God and sone really special people by my side, I made it through.

“I grow stronger everyday ,and the worst of it has passed but there have been a few aftereffects of my treatment, one of which affected my confidence…. Because its quite obvious.

“Being in an industry that places a high value on appearance, I found myself unable to reconcile taking medication that helped my mind but affected my weight.

“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 some many have lost their lives.

“I also understood something today…. that to stay off 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 of my scars is to disregard how I got them and belittle what I’ve Survived.

“Many of your guys send me words of encouragement, prayers, its means so much. I’m loving making music and slowing making my way back. Thank you for remaining. Gods love & Light?”.
