Gospel singer Celestine Donkor of Ghana has revealed her worst humiliation to inspire listeners to be faithful to God and trust that he will alter their own personal narratives.
From the narrative of Celestine Donkor, someone she worked with made her consume infant faeces before she got real food.
The gospel singer said that she was the seventh kid out of a total of fifteen, and that money was tight. Because of this, she was forced to find work as a domestic worker in several homes.
“I was serving people as a house help. So that was how I grew up. Living with different kinds of people formed a very important part of my life because I experienced different things at different levels.
“Some of the people I stayed with were very good to me. They took me in as their own daughter. There was no feeling like an outcast. And there were others who made me like rejected and less human,” she said on Rainbow radio.
Celestine Donkor shared one horrifying ordeal she went through in one of such households.
She said, “I lived with a woman in a compound house, helping her with chores. She already had a maid, so I was the assisting maid. One day after doing all the maid’s chores, she refused to give me food to eat.
“When our madam’s baby pooped in its diaper, she took off the soiled diaper and said I should eat the faeces before she gives me food. I was so hungry that I ate the baby’s faeces. I have never shared this because I feel it’s embarrassing.”
