She wrote:

“People ask me all the time,’ Ope why did u sacrifice ur career for family?,why did u leave at a time u were hotter than hot?, U could be up there by now, U could be getting most hot deals n endorsements, ur career would have blown supa huge!!!!. I look at them and always think n say to myself, ‘ignorance’ and ‘petty’. Now I am glad n proud to and those questions.

This is one of the reasons why. Abandoning my career to have lovely, handsome, glorious, blessed, intelligent, world changer boys is why. If given the grace and opportunity I will do same over and over again.

My pride, my prince, my joy, my future, my wealth, my endorsement, my primary career, words can’t express how honoured and grateful to God I am for the grace to be ur caretaker.

As u turn 5 today I celebrate u, I appreciate u, I honour God in ur life. David Oluwasemilore keep soaring on eagles wings and keep making ur creator, dad n mum proud. Happy birthday my 2nd prince, assistance boss mi, davidodo mi, long life and prosperity 🎂🎉, Amin🙏🏼😇”
