Singer Jodie Opens Up about Going through Traumatic Childbirth, Her Son being Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy & More in New Interview



In an emotional interview with Linda Ikeji TV, Nigerian singer Jodie Great opens up about her new life as a mum. You may remember her as J’odie from her hit song “Kuchi Kuchi”, over the last 2 years, she has kept a lower profile and now she has revealed why.

From her childbirth experience that put her between life and death, to her son being diagnosed with cerebral palsy, to taking care of a child born with special needs and a whole lot more.

We can’t help but admire her strength and poise! She’s such an inspiration.

    Wow!!! Jodie God is fighting for you indeed! You are a SUPER MUM! You believed God’s report not the doctors’ and your son has celebrated his first birthday, he will surely celebrate his second and many more…God will continue to strengthen you, amen.

    That studio backdrop needs to be straightened or changed. It is distracting…

      A lot of work to be a mom to a special needs child. I admire your courage. But, for the next time you are pregnant, Lissencephaly is the result of impaired neuronal migration between weeks 12 to 24 of gestation. I dont know the triggers but you should ask in case you would need to take vitamins/supplements the next time around. Take care and continue to be the strong woman you are. God is carrying you.

    The irony is that she was a virgin until she met him. He knocked her up, got married and left her when times are hard.
    At the end of the day, not all marriages will last forever but the child is yours, if she can’t talk about you supporting her on air then she’s not getting support from you for your son which is a huge shame.

    It’s a trend I’ve noticed. Most men who have kids with cerebral palsy or other needs ain’t really involved. It is well. I pray she continues to recieve all the support she needs.

Wish you all the best and the wisdom, Grace and strength to not just live but thrive and help your cute (he is cute. I’m not just saying to make you feel good. I’ve seen his pictures on your IG) special son thrive as well is yours, you wont lack. I sense a very powerful testimony coming your way. *hugs*

    Saw your hubby and wondered where you are. A search led me here…. Smh..Who would have thought so much pain would create so much strength and maturity. You’re so different… God bless you. So much..
