Beautiful and curvy on-air-personality, Tolu Oniru lives her life on a roller coaster. She is good at what she does as one of the hot presenters on Beat fm radio. She is one of the OAPs that is well loved by many of her listeners. The beautiful lady got married at a big traditional wedding to Captain Tunde Demuren, held at the Landmark Event Centre, Lagos on Saturday, January 30,2016 and had an expensive superlative white wedding in Dubai, UAE on May 28, 2016.
Shortly after the wedding, Toolz, as she is popularly called, announced that she and her husband Tunde Demuren were expecting their first baby, showing a baby bump on the May 6 2017 when the couple were celebrating with Tunde’s best friend Banky Wellingtons during his introduction. This was one happy time, for Tolu, as she joined the club of to-be mums. She was to later lose the pregnancy at her third trimester stage which is within 7-9 months as she revealed in her recent interview with Genevieve magazine. In it she shared her incredible journey to healing, following a life-changing experience, and her battles with Depression. The OAP who had always kept that part of her life private opened up on it. In her words,about the experience, “I’ve never spoken about it because it was very painful, and it’s still very difficult for me to talk about it”
She stated that going through those labour pains, knowing her baby was dead, broke her.”From the point we found out something was wrong till when the process was over was quite harrowing, but the parts that really broke me was having to go through the pain of labour knowing my baby was already gone,”.
“I also had a mini-breakdown when I had to get a Death Certificate so we could have a burial. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much in my life.” Toolz also revealed that she was confined to a bed in the hospital for a period of time due to the experience which she says left her “shaken, broken, rebuilt.”
However, she noted that the experience “ultimately strengthened her relationship with God.
“It made me realise how delicate life is, and as much as we say ‘I will do this or that’ it is inevitably down to God’s will. In December, I wrote that everyone will go through trying times, you just have to pray for the strength to get through it.
“That’s what God gave me, – strength to get through a very horrible experience.” Speaking of her husband, Tunde Demuren, she described him as an incredible source of support. Toolz said, “I actually went into labour whilst I was making his breakfast.
“I tried to finish because he is such a big foodie, but the pain was too much and I was bundled off in the ambulance. Maybe it was the gas and air or temporary insanity, but I remember asking the medics to stop so we could get some food for him”.
“They thought I was mad. We can laugh about that now.
“I think this experience brought us closer, and also made us realise how much we love each other. He made me pray, and he didn’t give up till I had emptied my heart out.” When a foetus dies in the womb before it is born, the syndrome is called intra-uterine fetal death. In most cases, the death occurs in the third trimester and the mother would have to go through labour to deliver the dead foetus.”I think this experience brought us closer, and also made us realised how much we love each other. He made me pray, and he didn’t give up till I had emptied my heart out.”
Her husband, Tunde Demuren,in an IG post, revealed why he allowed her speak about their trials and tribulations, following the loss of her pregnancy in her recent interview with Genevieve magazine. He wrote’’So my boo is on the cover of @genevievemagazine .. True confession, I have been the reason why she didn’t do interviews addressing some of our trials and tribulations because I want to keep our private lives private and I wasn’t sure that I was ready to share certain hard times with the world.. but I know a lot of people go through similar difficulties and we both know that sharing ours may in some small way help somebody out there… so take a minute to check it out, and I hope it helps whoever needs it at this time’’.
This will be the very first time they will be opening up on their private lives.
