Spyro: Hip hop artiste tells story of his prayerful mum


Elijah Adebero

Nigerian artiste, Spyro, has philosophised about the importance of a prayerful mother in one’s life, using his story as an example.

He links his dramatic success to his mother’s unending prayers and prophecy for him.

In an IG reflection, he recalled how she used to cry when she visited him at his boarding school as he was in a bad shape but  she felt he had something special that others didn’t.

He narrated in the post (SIC):

“When I was a kid ,I was far from greatness. I was the odd one, more like the rejected stone. I was a write-off.  I remember my mum coming to visit me in boarding school one day and she bursted (burst) into tears after seeing the mess I was BUT in all of these she would call me and say, “I know you are great. God told me and many prophets have confirmed it and if God has said it ,IT WILL HAPPEN’

I grew up and things got really tough but she never for once stopped telling me “SANMI , OGO E MA TAN KARI AYE “ and she will look at me and say “except it’s not GOD that said it” she held on to the prophesy constantly praying ,even when I lost hope she kept #FAITH and SUDDENLY in 2023 out of nowhere everything changed.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A PRAYING MOTHER and this makes me wonder if men and women of my generation can pray as our parents did cos WHO WILL STAND IN THE GAP FOR THESE NEW KIDS” *

life troubles do not recognize “BAD BITCH” “GENZ BADDIES” “ZADDY” “BIG BOY” life problems only respond to power.

OH MY GENERATION,WAKE UP FROM THY SLUMBER A lot of us are carried by our parents prayer ,what will Carry our own kids ?

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent.”
