I felt very betrayed by God when my husband died- Eric Arubayi’s widow[VIDEO]
Eric Arubayi’s widow, Chinonso Arubayi on Wednesday, revealed how she felt when her husband died on February 11, 2017.
Chinonso who was on Television Continental’s breakfast show noted that she felt very betrayed by God that her husband died despite him being a believer in God.
Arubayi said, “My husband and I lived a faith-based life. We prayed together. When he died, I lived in denial because I felt betrayed by God that my husband, a gospel artiste, could die. For the longest time, I didn’t want to pray. People sent me scriptures and messages, I didn’t want to have anything to do with it.
“While the society was supportive, it also had certain expectations; wear black, cut your hair, do and be seen to be in mourning.
“I fell into depression, shaved my hair at first and went to the barber again, that it wasn’t low enough. I wanted to go bald. I cut my hair and my friends would go, “Girl, you are still fine.” That only made me feel worse. I just wanted to about with charcoal and everything.
“When I started getting comfortable wearing black, being sad, I started going to church to hear the word. Also, a good friend of mine, reminded me that I was made for the glory of God and I needed to let it shine. That was when I started wearing make up and dressing up.
“Besides, as a professional Make-up artiste, how would I be able to convince people to let me make up for them, if I was looking unkempt?
Arubayi further stated that her husband’s death was, “so painful, because this was someone, I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I wish I had him for longer. It was a rude shock to me. We were together for three years”.
