Adunni Ade, the Nigerian actress, has recounted some of her past struggles on the occasion of her 46th birthday.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, the film star revealed how she grappled with the death of her brother and the struggles she encountered in the past year.
The mother of two also said her life is a living testimony of perseverance, adding that she suffered “countless sleepless nights and pains.”
“Many many years ago, God, you gave me a life that day I was born, and I hope I will spend all my life and do as much as I can to show you my love and gratitude. This past year has proven how strong-hearted I am and that I can conquer whatever I put my mind to,” she wrote.
“I am a living testimony of perseverance! Countless sleepless nights, so many nights of tears, being, aches and pains, wondered if I’d see another day! Lost my younger brother (God bless your soul, Douglas) Oh!
“The time I stepped into the big girl’s shoes, executively produced my first movie. A budget of N34m but ended up spending almost N50m. Hmmm! Story for another day!
“I promoted the movie like my life depended on it! Well, it did! I had casts who fled me over upon all the contracts signed but like I said, story for another day! With all my push, my sweat!
“I scaled through and my movie ranked 9th biggest movie in the country! On my first try? God is the greatest!”
The actress also appreciated her well-wishers as well as critics, adding that they have both been instrumental to her success story.
