A Nigerian woman, Olayinka Oyetunji, on Thursday, July 16 remembered the third-degree burns she had on her face and different parts of her body 23 years ago.
She said that the incident happened when she was 15 years old at exactly 7 pm. The woman said the first thought that came to her mind then was how she has been ruined for life and would never get a husband.
Rising from ashes like a phoenix
Olayinka, however, added that not only did she get a lovely partner years later but that she “married the best of men”.
The fire survivor said that when he met her man, he never asked any question about her scar. Two years after dating and she met her future mother-in-law, the woman asked his son if he noticed the burn.

Nothing can keep you down
Olayinka’s lover, now husband, gave a witty response as he said that he did not and will check if it is true and get back to her.
She said that nothing is too big to keep one down except one gives it the power to.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a Nigerian lady with the name Adetoun has revealed how she got her dream husband despite the fact that she was already a single mother of two children.
In an Instagram post, she said that after she lost her first home, everything went bad for her as she felt that the world failed and abandoned her.
She said that she was a single mother with no iota of hope of achieving success in life. In that midst of great challenges, Adetoun said that she decided to give her life another form of hope.
Adeotun added that the man she eventually met was the one for her, even though their path did not cross until much later.
The woman went on to narrate how she remained “steadfast” despite the fact that many ladies wanted him. According to Adetoun, she went straight to touch his heart.
In her final words, she advised singles ladies out there to keep up hope and believe that if she could succeed, they too could.
