Popular Nigerian comedian, Seyi Law and his wife, Stacy Ebere will unfortunately not have fond memories when they cast their minds back to this year’s Valentine.
This is because the comedian’s wife lost their first child shortly after giving birth in a hospital in Maryland, USA.
Since Seyi Law and his wife got married on March 27, 2011 at Banilux Event Centre, Sabo Yaba, Lagos, they had been waiting on the Lord for the fruit of the womb before sadly losing this baby.
To put the issue of the fruit of the womb into perspective, NET can exclusively recall that during the wedding of Tobi Ashimolowo, son of Mathew Ashimolowo in London back in 2014, Seyi Law, who anchored the event, had the rare opportunity of meeting the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, E.A Adeboye.
He took it upon himself to kneel before the respected man of God and jokingly asked the man of God to pray for him and his wife to have kids because he had been married for 3 years without any issue then. His wife later conceived and has since been in the United States since December 2014 to take delivery of the child but sadly lost the baby at childbirth.
The comedian had already christened the baby Cossy before her death. Dejected, Seyi Law shared the sad news on Instagram by writing: ‘My heart is blank, My joy has disappeared, Anger has become my companion. The wait is over with a bitter end. Oh Lord! why does it have to be me? I am so imperfect and never denied it.The pains of nine months has amounted to nothing. We believe so much in you. How do I console her when I can’t find strength myself? I thought my feet will dance this season. I have enlarged my tent in waiting, But my wait has been hit with sadness. I don’t want to murmur or complain, But my emotions are hurt. Help me to stand Lord. So, I can always be thankful. I want to be stronger in praises this period. I want to hold her hands to comfort her. Help us to pass this season while standing. Rest well Cossy.’ When Pastor Adeboye prayed for Seyi Law at the Ashimolowo wedding last year
