Surely, everyone has a story to tell and Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede Fawole is no different.
She went back memory lane today when she shared a throwback photo of herself, reminiscing on how she was once homeless and had to take shelter in studios before good fortune smiled on her.
Those things are all in the past now as she is thankful for how far she has come.
Sharing the above photo, she wrote:
Look at Choco 17yrs ago (2years before Nollywood/African Queen video). Wow😇 I have grown. I look at this picture with tears in my eyes, looking back at different stages of my life and all my struggles. Wow, to think there was a time I had no house/roof over my head, at ojuelegba under bridge at 2am with a little bag hanging under my arm (@femibrainard69 do you remember?).. Thanks to Shola aka Shaggy Dread who opened @ogidantade OGD studios for me to lay my head for those weeks (I had to wait till everyone left the studio, or was sleeping before I came knocking on the window.😇) Look at me now #Choco. This picture brings memories. LASU days, as a law student we had to wear white and black everyday (hence the white top) to class.
But bia, where did my eye brows go😂? My struggles only made me who I am. I have never been scared/ashamed of where I am or where I am coming from, but I’m certainly SURE of where I am going… #ChocoRules
