Morayo Afolabi-Brown, host of the popular all-ladies TV show in Nigeria, ‘Your View’ celebrated her 40th birthday on Monday, 6th July, 2020.
The beautiful media personality took to her Instagram page to recount a testimony of how she almost lost her life twenty-one years ago but was miraculously saved.
According to her story, her car flipped four times and ended up hanging on a tree. After she was rescued from the accident scene, she remained in a coma for four days.
Injuries she sustained from the accident included partial memory loss, speech loss, crushed thigh and ankles, skull fracture, and other body scars.
Upon return from the coma and discharge from the hospital after two weeks, she had to go through speech and walking therapy. It took her eight months before she could walk again.
“Twenty-one years ago, I got in a car accident on my way to see my Dad in the US. The car flipped 4 times on route 1 and hung on a tree. They got a chopper to cut me loose and fly me to Rutgers University Teaching Hospital, New Jersey.
“I was in coma for 4days. My mother, immediately flew in to sit by my hospital bed. I was discharged after 2weeks of recovery in the hospital.
“Then, therapy started. I lost part of my memory. I had to go through speech therapy to speak again. I lost 6 inches of my right thigh. They had to insert a 12 inch rod (still in my thigh) and four long screws, 2 in my hips and 2 in my knee. My ankle also crushed. I was confined to a wheel chair, later crutches and then booths for 8months before I could finally walk.”
“I was deformed and defaced with scars. I also had a skull fracture that left my head split. Didn’t think I would walk again or finish my education. I didn’t even think anyone would marry me with all these scars.”
According to her, it was the love shown to her by the Christian community in her area that made her mother, and then her father convert to Christianity.
“I was a Christian and people started praying for me. Churches came from all over my local county to pray for me because the news made the local papers.”
“My mother couldn’t believe the free love and support from the church during that time. It moved her to become a Christian when she returned to Nigeria. My Dad also converted when he got home.”
“God saved me and gave me another chance of life. Today, I celebrate my scars, as I turn 40yrs. @tybello for insisting I share testimony again. These are my real x-ray photos. The metals are never going to be removed. Please help me to praise Jesus for saving my life.”
