Music producer and singer , Olumide Ogunade, better known as ID Cabasa, has said that at a time , he felt like a failure because he was broke and couldn ’ t pay his rent. Speaking during an Instagram Live chat with rapper , Bouqui , he said , “ There was a time I was looking for house rent yet I gave money to two people for their kids ’ school fees .
Then, a certain guy came to me asking for transport fare and I told him that I would help him get money from some other folks in church.
I started asking around but that day, I could not get money for the guy. I was so shocked when the next day, the guy wrote an epistle about me on Facebook , saying I was a very bad person , with all the money that I had. I cried.
“ What I told God that day started changing a lot of things for me . People should learn from this .
There are times you do things out of indiscretion and you unknowingly destroy yourself .
I remembered that I went back home and prayed that God should give that guy the full details of what I was going through.
What I meant at that time was that God should make him go through what I was going through.
“Two days later , I was going through the scriptures and read the part where immediately Job finished praying for his friend , God restored him .
So , I prayed for the guy.
But , after praying for him , it was still on my mind .
I had to call him and tell him what I was going through .
I brought him to the studio and showed him all my luggage , saying me and my family had been living here for a while .
He felt bad , apologised and left.
“ My pain was the springboard for me to be well established .
I learnt a lot during that time .
It was like my own lockdown .
At that time , I thought I was a failure.
With everything I knew and the depth I had, I ( still ) felt I was a failure .
I thank God I learnt the lessons and was able to bounce back . ”
