Sumbo Adeoye, the first baby mama of renowned singer, Innocent Ujah Idibia aka 2baba recently spoke about her decision to conceive a second child with the musician though they weren’t married.
Now a Pastor, Sumbo readily discussed her motivations and the lessons she learn’t from the experience during an Instagram live session.
Sumbo acknowledged receiving unfit counsel from friends influenced her decision to have a second child with 2face.
She said her friends reasoned if she had another kid for 2baba, it would cement her bond and ultimately lead to marriage.
The cleric confessed walking away from the singer was the best decision she made in life as it led her to eventually meet the love of her life, Pastor Adeoye, the General Overseer and Senior Pastor of Royalty Christian Centre.
She explained encountering her partner, who she called her soulmate brought her immense joy and fulfillment due to the newfound love and companionship.
Addressing single ladies, Sumbo admonished them against rushing into marriage because of children because these kids would leave someday when they grow up and their partners would be all they have left. So she urged them to seek companionship, partners who’d invest in them in every ramification.
Pastor Adeoye lost his wife Pastor Mrs Folake Adeoye to a brief illness in November 2011. The marriage did not produce any child.
However, Pastor Adeoye found love again with Sumbo Ajaba who had two children, Nino and Zion for 2face.
The cleric, who’d known Sumbo since the inception of his ministry in 1998, was convinced she was to be his wife.
As of 1998, Sumbo was not only a member of the Royal Christian Centre but also a member of the choir.
She also was a spiritual daughter to the cleric’s late wife Pastor Folake.
The church, however, did not receive the news of their planned union enthusiastically as there were a lot of controversies surrounding the pastor marrying a single mother of two and a chorister.
Finally, the duo married in 2013 after the conflicts surrounding them were sorted. The wedding took place at Sheraton Hotel Ikeja, Lagos.
In July 2018, they welcomed their first child, Prince David Adeoye in the United States of America after five years of marriage.
The couple welcomed their second child a baby girl on May 12, 2020.
