Nigerian-American singer, Kechi Okwuchi, has shared her journey following the popular Sosoliso crash that happened 14 years ago.
The America’s got talent singer shared a couple of pictures on her social media, talking about how God helped her through the journey.
Recall that Kechi was among the two survivors of the Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 crash. She had sustained third degree burns on most of her body and had undergone multiple surgeries.
Kechi wrote, “Wonder if I should tag this as sensitive content…?) I stumbled upon the picture on the left on my laptop a couple months ago, and i have been contemplating this post since then,” she write.
“I remember I stared at it for a long time that day. Time makes me forget just how extensive my burn injuries were, and how devastating the effects were to my body.”
She compared the pictures she had recently to the ones she had after the crash. Kechi also praised her doctors for the job well done.
“The pic on the left was taken a good year after the plane crash and by then, intense scar tissue had formed, esp on my face.
“I took the pic on the right a few mins ago and made these before/afters, and I marvel at how far God has brought me. I am the result of the hard work of multiple surgeons He brought into my life, nurses, physiotherapists, and love and care from my family, my mom especially.
“This is what progress looks like, guys. 2 pictures, 14 years apart. I’m grateful that I lived long enough to see it.”
According to Kechi, her main purpose is to encourage anyone going through emotional and physical hurdles.
“I decided to make this post so that you guys can marvel at God with me. I want someone who reads this to see that true progress, genuine growth, and lasting change cannot happen overnight.
“Most of the time during the journey, maybe like me, you won’t notice changes because day by day they’re too minuscule to make a difference.
“But if you give yourself a fighting chance, if you find the right kind of support on your journey, one day, definitely one day, you will look back like I did this morning and hopefully…you will smile.
“I heard this in a song and it stuck with me: The night will definitely come. But so will the morning.”
