Comedian YY: I went into depression after losing unborn baby

Churchill show comedian Oliver Otieno aka YY, has revealed that he was stressed out and depressed following his unborn baby’s death four years ago.

YY said that they were left with a tough decision of choosing between the mother or the baby after she developed some serious complications.

“I had a lot of expectations and I was so excited but the excitement was cut short in a manner I did not expect. We went to the labour ward but the doctors recommended she has a Caesarian section. I went to book [for one] but they said the theater was full.” 


YY still remembers the unborn baby despite having parted ways with the lady she was dating.

“Sometimes we question what happens but it may be a blessing or even could be a lesson that God wants us to learn from those particular situations. I took it as a lesson and although I endured the pain for a while, it made me a better person and I am now able to accept things as they come.” he added. 

On Father’s Day, YY celebrated himself as a dad on Instagram saying, “Happy Father’s Day To Me…my late daughter would be four years old today but everything happens for a Reason.”
