Ojuolape Veronica Asuquo, the wife of talented singer Cobhams Asuquo, opened a new interview in which her son was born blind.
She went on to share how the blindness of her son made her closer to God. Ojuola, a PR expert, married Cobhams Asuquo in 2010. A year later, they welcomed their first child to the U.S. on November 30, 2011.
It wasn’t until months later that she discovered that he was visually impaired.
She said, “The elephant in the room of my life in the last six years is pretty much… So, I got married, and we got pregnant.
My pregnancy was fantastic, I didn’t even know I was pregnant, I found out I was pregnant, I wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms.” After the “smooth” pregnancy and even smoother delivery that took place “under 45 minutes,” her baby was cheesy.
She went on to say, “Everything was so smooth, and then fast forward to four months after my son was born, and the doctor was like ‘His eyes don’t follow,’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he doesn’t follow?’
“And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just begins to palpitate.” She said that the doctor, who is a gynecologist, was concerned and sent her to a paediatrician.
She said that her experience made her question her spiritual strength. However, despite everything that has happened, she said that she believes she is making progress, which is why she can finally share her story in the open.
David Asuquo, 7, is an excellent pianist, just like his famous father, Cobhams Asuquo, who was born blind.
