    Couples now announce pregnancies in Nigeria? Interesting!

      Hello Kemi, I don’t know if couples ‘now announce pregnancies in Nigeria,’ but for the purpose of the Vlog and people who’d been watching/following, we thought it’d be nice to keep people updated about certain things happening with us. We thought this was nice to share.

      And what is wrong with saying you are pregnant? Is pregnancy a disease? a shameful act? a taboo?

      Here comes the unnecessary secretive, hiding Nigerians love to live in. I’m not saying dress nude to show baby bump or give every details of your life but What’s wrong with a woman sharing good news of, I’m pregnant”? So, the witches won’t come and steal the baby or what. It’s so annoying to see the fear and bondage nigerian women live in. If you are a Christian, why give the devil, enemies so much power over your life by living in constant fear. When I was pregnant, my mother in law, my family advised me not to share the news for whatever reason.
      I told them, look I’m going to share the news, it’s me declaring God’s faithfulness and I’m happy to start this new journey of my life. Why hide my happiness and gratitude. They later came on board. I gave birth to a healthy baby.

      May 5, 2016 at 3:01 pm

      Llloolll! Tell me about cheesy. I know ooo, but it’s part of the love sometimes. Thanks for your generous and encouraging comments. Trust God to do even more for you. Look forward to hearing the good news.

      Hhhmmm, I’ve heard the same about baby boys. We’ll just have to wait and see. Stick around.

    It’s good to have you “back back” plus the “addition to the family”. We are counting on you to continue the vlogs o as we have very very few sources of inspiration nowadays, people like you still give us hope. Peace and love.

    I hope you guys are spiritually on point,because all these announcements you are making are really not needed. Remember this is Naija you have to apply wisdom when announcing some things. The love still dey shack una abi…. just take it easy and be prayerful. Announce less and pray more. The marriage institution has come under heavy attack so apply wisdom. LEARN FROM OLDER COUPLES. THIS IS NOT UK!!!!!!

      Ese. Thank you. Eku ife.

    • Toju Oluwatoyinbo

      May 5, 2016 at 10:25 pm

      Hello Gladys, thanks for taking time and data out to watch the video or at least look through BN.

      Thanks for ‘looking out.’ I believe I get your angle. Nevertheless, my husband and I believe that whatever part of the world we are in, God’s got us, so except in explicit situations, we don’t need to ‘cover something that is already obvious anyway.’ We’ve built relationships through this Vlog and because of the nature of it over time, sharing the good news wasn’t a bad idea.

      We already mentioned the Vlog won’t be all about us, we’ll have other and older couples come in from time to time. Our ‘learning from older couples’ continues.

      Thanks again.

    Its a girl!! Toju looks really pretty.
    There is this misconception that women look prettier when they are giving birth to girls and the reverse is the case when its a boy child.

      LOL never heard of that oooo

    • Toju Oluwatoyinbo

      May 5, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      Thank you so much Oma. I’ve heard all sorts of stories myself…I’m just glad I’m having a good time being pregnant. Trusting God that whether I’m having a boy or girl, it’ll be the same story. A big AMEN to that. Thanks again.

    Hi pastor dami, you interjected your wife a lot…let her talk… Congrats on the biggest achievement!

    • A-nony

      May 5, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      lol. Yeah i noticed that too. Probably because he has a strong personality. But he does need to stop interjecting.

    May 5, 2016 at 6:20 pm

    I’m very happy for you, and I pray that God continues to strengthen your marriage!

    But a word of caution, be VERY careful what you post out here on social media and on YouTube. There are devils in human flesh out there. After all the drama that has happened this year alone in Nigeria, one has to be very cautious as to what one shares on social media.

    Since y’all are big on sharing personal stuff, why did you leave HOTR after ‘PP sent you to the UK branch and everything he did for you (Dami)??

    • Toju Oluwatoyinbo

      May 6, 2016 at 9:44 am

      Good morning Curious, thank you for watching the video or at least checking a bit of it all out. We appreciate the time taken. We’re not big on sharing personal stuff, just what we think is appropriate, necessary or helpful. We prayerfully and wisely consider.

      Pastor Dami actually has a very exhaustive post on his Facebook page about our return to Nigeria and God’s plans. Before you maybe get a chance to speak with him, that could help answer some or most of your questions.

      Again, thanks for watching.

      Taammmyyy! I totally need to get in touch with you. I will. Forgive me. Thank you ssoo much for the constant love and support. It means a great deal to us. We love you too. Amen to your prayers!!!

    Hello Toju,sure” God”s got” every believer but you guys should be smarter than to announce some very sensitive things to faceless people in this part of the world.

    You dont put your ” vital cards” on the table and when the devil comes stealing, you blame him?. Like i said the marriage institution is under heavy attack, you guys are still very young in marriage but should be smarter, if you truly have the spirit of God.

    Since you knew it was obvious wisdom requires that you do not mention. JUST BE WISE .

  31. Sholzie

    OMG!!! Congratulations darling!
    Toju I’m so happy for you and your husband.
    You look beautiful as usual.

      Ttthhaannkkss! I’m happy to hear. *blushes* Hope you are doing well.

  32. Dami Oluwatoyinbo

    May 6, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    We hear your heart and understand some of your concerns. Thankfully, we are both spiritually sound as we are increasing daily in the knowledge of God. As you get to know us better, you will find out that prayer is a critical part of all we do and our decisions are birthed from it. More importantly, as the Bible says, we believe “perfect love casts out all fear” regardless of location or age. And there have been many who have “fallen prey” to the things you are concerned about even without “making any announcements.” As per learning from other couples, we are all for that and we are constantly learning from those generous enough to share their own experiences. Thanks for your observations and caution though

    Meanwhile, I recommend you mind your language and let your words be seasoned with salt always as Apostle Paul kindly admonishes.. When you use expressions like “you guys should be smarter IF you really have the Spirit of God.”, it makes me wonder if you are the ” God appointed inspector of other people’s spirits” or a just a self-appointed monitor.” Or “Soul- supervisor”

    Whichever one it is. We stand strong in faith and love and if you can, keep us in your prayers.

    God bless you Gladys!

    I admire you both a lot.. A combination of God’s blessings in marriage.
    May your union get better and sweeter in Jesus mighty name, and congratulations on the good news.

    May 6, 2016 at 5:44 pm

    Hm. To be honest, I cringed when I heard the ”preggy news” but pictures don’t lie…..lol. From my point of view, if the news was announced or not, the baby will come after nine months anyway! So why did I cringe? I think its good ol’ culture mentality….na God go help us. I think Damilola and Toju are simply amazing people. Yeah, young couple , yet mature! I am glad meeting them in this lifetime!xxx

    May 6, 2016 at 6:53 pm

    Hey Gladys, I do understand that you mean well as you are clearly older and have “seen life” But you sound extremely judge-y and controlling almost. The devils does come to steal whether or not we announce or not but two will chase what? 10,000 right? Of course they have considered everything before they made the announcement. Have any idea what they have been through in their marriage whether young or not? You make it seem as if marriage is hell on earth and they are still in the phase of heaven and you can’t wait for them to experience hell…Again i understand your premise of caution and wisdom but I almost heard you screaming judgment at them and that was so unsettling and rather brash of you. Dami and Toju i do think you know better in what you let us know. w only pray for you as a couple that it gets better. In hell and high waters may God always be your standard. Safe delivery.

    Hi Toju, I’ve always wondered where you’re originally from as you tied george on your wedding day. Curious, due to the fact that you have a yoruba name (I assume) but your family was decked out in george. I love cultures; especially Nigerian cultures… Please share if you don’t mind.

      Oh wow, thank you! I have a friend named Toju. I’ve been thinking all these while that he is yoruba lol. I’m familiar with Itsekiri; I am Bayelsan.

  38. Toju Oluwatoyinbo

    Hello Sisi R! Hope you are well. Eyitemi is correct, I am from Delta state, Warri. I am Itsekiri. Thanks Eyitemi.

  42. Just my thot

    October 27, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    About announcing pregnancy, I remember having those concerns at the time I was carrying my princess and a lot of people reminding me of the need to be discreet about a rather obviously big stomach. When I put up my pre-baby shoots, someone actually asked me to take it down. Then the Spirit of God witnessed to me: ‘What is the motive for hiding your pregnancy? Is it fear or caution?’ ‘you go to work, you go to the market, you go shopping, you have been to the movies and thousands of people who could have harmed you have seen you yet you have remained unharmed. So what is your real motive?’

    My two-kobo – A child is a gift and every person who is expecting a child needs to deal decisively with fear. You put up your proposal pictures, pre-wedding pictures and more pictures right up to the moment they ask you to turn off your phone in church for the wedding ceremony but you have no fear that your day will be stolen. Please enjoy your pregnancy and let grace pull you through.

    Congrats again to the lovely couple. E pe fun ara yin o….
