Triple O pens open letter to fans after birth of baby girl

Tue 24 Jul 2018
By Isaac Borquaye

Triple O has penned an honest and open letter to his fans after the birth of his baby girl. The MOBO Award winner is one of the veterans of contemporary Gospel music and knew that this news would be a surprise to his fans. Read his letter here.

On the 17th of May 2018 God bestowed unto me the most precious of gifts a man could ever receive - 3 days after my birthday I became a father to a glorious baby girl, an awesome treasure I cherish and celebrate with my whole heart.

The past few months has been one intense journey - a journey in which I am very much still on!! ...In no way have I got it right throughout this whole process, but one thing I have learnt is ‘grace’ and how beautiful God’s grace really is.

Because of my ‘position’ and my ‘platform’ it is very important for me to first apologise to my friends, family, fans and supporters for letting you down - the fear and disappointment associated with such a happening has silenced me into a place of regret, darkness and shame, which in turn caused me to make some very stupid and selfish decisions. But the makings of a man aren’t shaped by his failures - but instead his ability to own up to his mistakes, handle his responsibilities head-on and allow integrity to govern his decisions moving forward. Yet through this restoration period God has never failed to remind me that true forgiveness will never be found in man, but in Him and in Him alone.

So the condemnation from those who choose to speak negatively on this issue should not force me back into a place of defeat, but instead motivate me to live to the glory of God and take respite in the fact that we are all hurt and broken people in need of God’s love and restoration.

I’m so excited to now be a steward of this beautiful baby girl. This gem God has commissioned me to love & nurture in all truth and wisdom as she grows to be a woman of virtue.
So again i must apologise to you all, but remain filled with a heart of gratitude towards those who have been so graceful and supported us during this season. To say that even as I am writing this I am not filled with anxiety and fleeting thoughts of fear would be a lie - all now I am still very much scared; but I know that those who genuinely care will keep us in prayer as I continue asking God for the grace to be a reflection of my Heavenly Daddy in order to be the father my daughter needs me to be. - Keep Breathing!
