Adekunle Gold: “There Were Days I Prayed To Die”

Shortly after the release of his single 5 Star, singer, Adekunle Gold recounts his experience as a child born with sickle cell anaemia. The singer revealed that there were days he prayed for God to take his life.

In an open letter to his fans, AG Baby revealed he went through so much struggles as a kid due to his health challenge. He said:

“One of the most intense crisis I had was at the age of 20, I remember laying in my bed in the middle of the night asking for an end to it all. I begged God to take my life away because I couldn’t understand what I did to deserve the pain my body and mind was under. As usual with sickle crisis after some days, the pain subsided and God asked me; “That end you begged me for, do you still want it?” Of course I said no and that’s when everything changed for me. That’s when I realized that I had been given another opportunity to live my dreams and to show those that mocked me that sickle cell anemia was never going to end me, that it was never going to hold me back from my dreams and aspirations.”
