People Thought Comedian Seyilaw Was Impotent?

Not just a few knew that comedian, Seyi Law and his wife, Ebere, went through emotional trauma sometime ago when they lost their child. But now, after his wife was delivered of a baby recently, the comedian is in cloud nine.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, the singer explained that even before he had the child that died, some people already tagged him impotent.

“The fact that we lost a child was very tough. Sometimes when you post something on the social media, people wonder why you bring your family issue to the social media. What they do not know is that you just want some words of encouragement. Sometimes you really cannot control the way bad news spreads. I have heard people say things like I cannot get a woman pregnant. 

When the news came out that I lost my child, it was more like a confirmation that I am a man. But by the special grace of God, I have another child now. What made that very painful was the fact that when we lost the baby, I did not know what to tell my wife and how to console her and that was a very difficult time for me. I needed to rely on the words of encouragement from people to stay strong for both myself and my wife,” he said.

The comedian said he's very happy with the arrival of their new baby.

His words: “I am very excited that I am a proud father. I remember that one day in my church, they were doing a programme tagged, ‘Parenting in the 21st century’. When I was telling someone about it, I said that the programme was for parents like us. The excitement is so much and I am very happy about it. I am grateful to God and I cannot quantify my joy."
