Former Watford and Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, was in his inspirational best when he took to his social media account to share and advice youths to believe in and hold on to God, revealing how he was dumped by his girlfriend because “I had nothing to offer her.”
Ighalo, who joined Chinese Super League side, Changchun Yatai FC, from English Premier League side, Watford, took to his instagram page to share the story of his journey from grass to grace.
“From Ajegunle to the world, I serve a living God, this is me 11 years ago,” Ighalo said, while posting an image of himself.
“Those earrings are not earrings; I could not even afford to buy earrings that are tape, plaster.
“I am a testimony, I knew with God everything is possible, I was just holding on to my God, my high school girlfriend left me then because I had nothing to offer her. But I had God and I had a dream.
“Never give up on your Dream, the same God that elevated me shall elevate you, hold on to him and trust his timing.
“I am a testimony, you are a testimony, put God first and it’s all done Amen,” the 28-year-old added.
