Success Adegor’s Parents Speak On The Circumstances Surrounding Her Birth And Why They Named Her Success


Want to realize your full potential and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations? Follow @dearyoungnaijawoman

A few weeks ago, we reported the story of a seven-year-old girl, Success Adegor, who was angry for being sent home from school. In the video recorded of Success, she said she would have preferred being flogged than being sent home.

The video went viral and a lot of people rose to donate their widow’s mite to Success and her family. In fact, her video revealed the state of education in Warri, where Success and her family are based.

The Governor of her state has demanded that her school be renovated and the head teacher of the school is presently being investigated for the money Success was sent home for.

In a chat with PUNCH, Success’s father revealed that she was born with signs of greatness in her. According to him, his wife once contemplated aborting her when she became pregnant with her and even took a poisonous substance to get rid of her.

“I knew she would be a great child. That was why I gave her the name Success. We received many favours on the day she was given birth to. Let me tell you a short story about Success. After our second child, my wife said she didn’t want to give birth to another child.

“When she was pregnant with Success, she decided to drink ‘Angle 90’ (a poisonous substance). She said she wanted to die. I convinced her that rather than kill yourself, have the baby so that you could sell it for N500, 000. But she said she wouldn’t sell her baby.

“On the day Success was born, somebody that had owed me N100, 000 paid the debt. Money was just coming from different areas. As we were receiving the goodwill, I told my wife that if we had terminated the pregnancy, would these favours have come to us? It was because of the goodwill that has always followed her that made me named name Success.

“She has been receiving blessings from every corner since she was born. There was a day a soldier who stopped the vehicle that was taking them (our children) to see their grandmother at Kwale, gave her the bread he had bought for his family. The soldier said he liked the way my daughter was talking. Anywhere she goes, she always receives favour. She has won a scholarship before. The scholarship was given to her by a governor’s aide.”

When Success was asked what she would like to be in the future, she said,

“I want to be a lawyer and pastor. I want to be a pastor so that I can preach the gospel. I want to become a lawyer because I love everything about them. I love their dressing and I hope to become a judge (someday).”

      I understand your misgivings concerning her upbringing but you have to realize that every parent sees their children as potential stars. I honestly doubt that this was in an attempt to trend seeing as the lack of literacy in the family is apparent. It is simply a clear case of extreme joy and hope from a father that couldn’t afford fees of his daughter. He is probably seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The child still has time to overcome her background but not everything reeks of negativity.

    So what’s with the hate here? Why are people here spilling so much hatred? What he is trying to say here is that no one knows the child that will bring their family luck like success. Did he ask u to send them money? Was it the mother that asked the lady to record her daughter? The girl was favoured, and ur hatred here won’t stop it. U thatur children has holy character, where has it taken them to? I won’t envy what I’m asking God to do for me, FAVAOUR. Carry ur pepper body go another place.

Probably the lady that did the record, wanted to use it to fun, it turned out to be a testimony, people can’t see the hand of God in it, it’s to be giving useless advise upandan. Check them, their kids has the most rotten character. This girl didn’t have a good background, yes we know, but God has said it’s time to remember her, so I won’t hate. Ndi proper upbringing👏👏👏
