Popular Nigerian dancer, choreographer and dance instructor, Kafayat Oluwatoyin Shafau, popularly known by her stage name Kaffy has just revealed how she coped with depression.
In a recent interview with the Sun newspaper, the CEO Imagneto Dance Company disclosed how motherhood transformed her. Here is what she said;
“Motherhood helped me overcome depression. There are times when you are frustrated by everything around you and you feel the entire world is going to crash on your head.
You just feel down but then you need to do stuff because you are a mum. You see, there is this genuine love that radiates from your child to you, and regardless of what is going on in the world, you know that this child loves you and the love is always fresh.
And so I learnt to lock into that love and use it as a springboard to forge ahead, and then I begin to see that God loves me so much he decided to bless me with the child.”
The veteran dancer is married with two children.
