Tosin @tosin.ogwe of Christiana Andrews @officialcabrand wanted to celebrate her 30th birthday, launch her book NUMB and renew her vows all in one. It was a surprise renewal to her guests. A day filled with elegance, emotions, laughter, forgiveness, and love.
Tosin, who has spent the last 30 years of her life on a rollercoaster of challenges, struggles, battles, and trials documented her journey in her self-published debut book titled – NUMB (https://www.ogwe.co.uk/). Tosin got married in 2011 at the age of 22, as a form of escapism from her past life, not realising that running from your past was not an option. She should have faced it head-on.
The wedding took place at a registry followed by a celebration with family and friends. She, however, did not like what the day had to offer, the vibe was negative, people fighting, family members walking out of the celebration. It was her worst nightmare.
5 years ago, Tosin met Bola of Memories4u at a wedding she was filming. Tosin experienced a flawlessly planned and joyful wedding that by the end of the event, she told Bola that she will be planning her vow renewal. A few attempts were made to plan the renewal but it didn’t quite happen, as they say, “man proposes but God disposes.”
Finally, earlier this year a date was selected which coincided with Tosin’s 30th birthday and planning started. In preparation for her birthday party, Tosin’s husband took her to Dubai on a hunt for a new ring that had significant meanings as a birthday gift because her first ring was a £20 promise ring that she received at 19. What Andrew did not know was that Tosin was planning a secret vow renewal to honour their love.
Tosin’s book, NUMB is an honest, transparent and shocking journey from childhood to adulthood with 30 Life Lessons Learnt. NUMB gives readers’ valuable insight into the woman behind the camera and her tumultuous journey which consists of sexual abuse, mental health, homelessness and so much more. The triumphant and compelling short story takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Numb will make you feel infuriated and joyful within a short period of time.
The 30th of September 2018 was a remarkable day for Tosin and her family filled with love and healing. “Love Heals. God is Love”
