Contrary to what many believe that he has three children, popular gospel tungba crooner, Yinka Ayefele has revealed he has been childless for 25 years before giving birth to his triplet last month June.
51-year-old Ayefele who became famous after releasing an album titled ‘bitter experience’ made this known at an annual gospel programme organized by Love of Christ Generation C&S London tagged ‘the comforter’
Recounting his ordeal, the gospel artist said, “I met Iya Adura in 2018 in London. She told me that if I believe all things are possible. I have never had a child and I don’t have a child anywhere. I have been married for 25 years.
“In 2018, I went to Clapham, London, and she took me to a room and told me about great testimonies in her life. Initially, I just considered those testimonies as one of those things men of God said. She told me that God said I would have my children. That there is nothing God cannot do. I believed her and I can tell you that I am a testimony today. I am proudly ‘the first Nigerian artiste to have triplets’.”
The church shared a video of the singer’s testimony on its official Instagram page on Wednesday.
The charismatic musician and his wife welcomed triplets, two boys and a girl in a hospital in Maryland, U.S.
The ‘Tungba’ gospel crooner, who had always kept his personal life private, shared a video of the newborn babies on Instagram.
The singer had denied viral reports that his wife had given birth to twins and urged his fans to ignore the reports.
Yinka Ayefele was involved in an automobile accident on December 2, 1997, which damaged his spinal cord and confined him to the wheelchair.
It is, however, still uncertain if the singer was actually married 25 years ago.
He had once noted in an interview that he wedded his wife four years after the accident.
With 22 albums to his credit, Ayefele remains one of Nigeria’s biggest gospel music sensations.
