“I always knew somewhere deep in my heart that I “Annie” was created for bigger n better things, that this right here isn’t my life…I remember very clearly as a kid maybe 10 or 11 every evening walked from Igbogosho crossing the famous Lekki Expressway 2 Jakande just to fetch water for cooking etc..,” she wrote.
She revealed that she was a kid who was born with a silver spoon from birth till when she was about six years old before the separation of her parents.
“It wasn’t easy, but I always knew my life was more than that life. Thank you lord for turning my life around from that girl that use to help her mom sell pepper soup after school, whose mom was “the cook” that girl who had to start her first degree as a part-time student cos she had to be at work by 7am-6pm (marketing n selling magazine) and rush to LASU Ikoyi Campus by 6:30..was always late to class. And everyone just thought i was unserious cos i was always late 2 class. Struggled as a model.. was too short so didn’t go far..tried anchoring a music show..had so many doors slam on my face,” she added.
She then thanked God for the woman she has become today, saying that he has made her an independent woman.
