“It only takes a bit of sperm to birth a child, but it takes the saving Grace, Wisdom, and Guidance from God to raise one. I used to say that I was ready to be a father before I was ready to be a husband. The whole marriage thing seemed so… impossible to get right or to do right.”


“And looking back now, on what is technically my first official Father’s Day, I’m SOOOO grateful to Father God that His plans are better, His ways are higher and His thoughts deeper than mine. He’s taught me (and continues to teach me) how to be a better man, husband, and Father. I don’t have it all figured out, but I’m a child of the One that does.”


“I’m grateful for my Crown, the one and only Mrs. Etomi-Wellington @adesuaetomi. I’m grateful to have the honor and privilege to be a Daddy to #BabyZ, and a Zaddy and Sugar Daddy to #MamaZ 😁😎😌🤣🤦🏽‍♂️🕺🏽🥰 – I’m grateful to my Dads…Mr. George Bankole Wellington and Pastor @tonyrapu. And I wanna give a massive shoutout to all the men. May the God that created us in His image, coach us to be better reflections of Him.
