Nigerian ace producer and singer, Cobhams Asuquo‘s first child is visually impaired like him.
In a recent interview, his wife, Ojuolape, revealed that their first son, David was born visually impaired. According to her, when she and Cobhams got married in 2010, she took in and gave birth in 2011 without any complications. She disclosed that the pregnancy was very smooth and the delivery took only 45 minutes.
However, She stated that it was until their son was four months old that it became clear that he was born blind after running tests abroad. 7-year old David is also an excellent pianist like his father and is growing up just fine.
“The elephant in the room in my life in the past 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, found out I was pregnant, still wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms.” “
After the “smooth” pregnancy and an even smoother delivery that happened “under 45 minutes”, her baby was checked abroad and she was told he is OK. “Everything was so smooth. And then fast forward to four months after my son was born and the doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?’ “And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just starts palpitating.”
