Cobhams Asuquo's Mum Emerges 'Super Mom' Celebrity Edition Winner
Mrs Asuquo, mother of multiple award-winning music producer, Cobhams Asuquo has emerged the winner of the celebrity edition of popular TV programme, The Super Mom. She beat Mrs Cecilia Awotoye, mother of Tony Tetuila and Mrs Mary Agwu, Julius Agwu to win the show.
With her announcement as the show's winner, Mrs Asuquo has won 2million Naira which would be given to any charity organisation of her choice. She would also get to go for a trip abroad.
Narrating her story, Mrs Asuquo said while Cobhams was three months old, she noticed some things about him which made her take the boy first to the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State before being referred to a Kaduna hospital. It was at the Kaduna hospital she was told that her child, Cobhams was visually impaired.
She further said while Cobhams's dad was sent for a peace-keeping mission in Chad Republic, she had to sell groundnut in order to use for the children's upkeep as her husband was unable to send money home for the family's upkeep.
Mrs Asuquo also said that when Cobhams told her he was leaving UNILAG, where he was studying Law, to study music, she was not surprised about it because Cobhams had shown musical traits while a boy.
Cobhams confirmed that his mum helped him become independent while growing up not minding his condition. He said his mum has made him who he is today.
