Why I initially lied about the arrival of my triplets – Yinka Ayefele
Gospel musician, Yinka Ayefele has revealed why he initially lied about the arrival of his triplets.
News broke out a few months ago that Yinka Ayefele welcomed triplets. This was swiftly denied by him and his manager who advised the public to disregard it as fake news.
However, a few days ago, Yinka Ayefele shared first photos of the babies and admitted that they were welcomed in January.
In an interview with PUNCH Saturday Beats, he said, “My babies were actually born on January 18, 2019. They were delivered prematurely, so initially I had to deny the reports when it went viral. I told those who saw me at the hospital in the USA not to disclose that I had given birth because I wanted my triplets to live.
“I was so scared initially for their lives, I didn’t want anything to happen to them health-wise but I thank God that everything is perfect now, they are doing very fine.
“It’s a thing of joy and I have never experienced it before. I never expected it too because when one is looking for the fruit of the womb, one may get one or at least two but not three. The first time I heard that my wife was pregnant, I was very excited. From the moment we confirmed she was pregnant, I couldn’t describe my joy. But on the day of delivery, seeing the scan, baby A, B and C, it now dawned on me that they were eventually coming to the world.
“The babies have been a source of blessing to me. There have been a lot of changes in all that pertains to me.
“I also appreciate my special wife who endured for over 20 years to achieve this. Some women would have eloped; her family would have pressured her to leave but she was steadfast.”
