A Mother of Destiny: The Inspiring Story of filmmaker Kafui Danku 


A mother of destiny: Kafui Danku's inspiring story

Indeed, winners don’t quit and quitters never win. Life as we know it, are full of bumps in the road, mudslides, thorns, mountains and valleys. Some have a smooth ride in certain areas whiles have it rough and vice versa. No one has it all easy; even the rich and powerful have their own challenges to worry about sometimes. We all expect to reach the rough patches at one point but how do we handle it when there doesn’t seem to be an end to the storms we face?

Those of us who are Christians always quote the verse which says, ‘sorrow might endure for the night but joy comes in the morning’ to encourage ourselves of a brighter day ahead. But what if the night never seems to end? And every new day brings more pain than the previous; that your worst yesterday feels like a tip of the iceberg compared to today’s predicament? How do we keep holding on?

Well, a feature interview with Ghanaian actress Kafui Danku on GhOne TV with Berla Mundi really humbled and inspired me. She recently delivered a beautiful baby girl and she held a fancy pinky reception after the christening. At first, I was wondering why go all out for a baby’s christening as it’s not that common until I heard her story. Then I understood why she celebrated her baby’s birth the way she did.

Before this baby, Kafui had suffered one stillbirth and three miscarriages. Three! Some women would have given up on being a mother but not Kafui. I’ve heard stories of one or two miscarriages but three and a stillbirth, that’s too much for one woman to endure in a lifetime, don’t you think? But as one quote goes, God gives His toughest battles to His strongest soldiers; and Kafui has proven herself to be one strong woman. Thank God for a supportive husband who didn’t blame or give up on her but stood by her side through it all till their desire was fulfilled.

Failures can be disheartening and they have the power to make us doubt ourselves and give up on our potential. What Kafui’s story as well as several others teach me is that failure no matter how many times it occurs doesn’t mean quit; it only means try again. As long as you keep believing God’s promises for your life and you keep working hard, God will repay you for every tear you’ve shed and every pain you’ve endured. 

Are you going through hell at the moment? Are you beginning to believe that voice in your head that tells you there’s no hope and God doesn’t care? I hope you’ll find inspiration in Kafui’s story as I have and renew your faith in God. He knows best so let go of what you’ve lost. Hand over what you have left to Him and trust that His timing and plans are the best for you.

Kafui Danku has starred in a number of movies like Any Other Monday, Happy Death Day and Letters To My Mother and I know she’s destined for so much more. You may check out her website  here.

Your breakthrough is on the way!

  7. So you’re basically telling readers that there’s something wrong with them if they don’t keep trying to get pregnant even after multiple losses, that “not giving up” is the key to fertility. This is not only incredibly unkind but also incredibly ignorant. And the other people on here who just tell you that you’re supposed to keep going through the worst pain of your life over and over again because they happen to know one person who finally had children? Shame on you. If a couple has been through all they can go through, they shouldn’t be shamed into continuing to put themselves through more heartache. People need to start respecting what people have been through and stop telling them that they need to keep going. If they want to stop that doesn’t make them a lesser person, and not everyone who keeps going and that finding success.

    All of you out there leaving comments telling people that quitting is not an option can go straight to hell. You are all incredibly judgmental and cruel in telling other people that it’s not okay for them to end the journey- and literally have no idea what you’re talking about when it comes to infertility and pregnancy loss. You don’t speak for all women.

      Hi there. It’s true I don’t speak for all women. The fact that you may not want to try again after a loss doesn’t mean someone else feels the same way. Whatever you choose to do is your choice, no one can take that away from you. Telling people not to give up is no way judgmental, only encouraging. If you don’t feel the same way, that’s okay. We are all entitled to our opinions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts

      1. Yes it is judgmental and no it’s not encouraging, because it tells people that it’s not okay to give up. I’ve been through five rounds of IVF and have lost a baby – it is not encouraging when people tell me to not give up. We are doing our final round in a week and being told by people that we shouldn’t give up is incredibly rude and insensitive to what we’ve been through and our decision to no longer put my body through the hell it’s been through for the past few years.

        Sorry for your loss and I don’t know better. Some people don’t see things the same way you do perhaps you should respect that. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

      3. No you should stop telling people what to do and how to feel and start respecting what people have been through and that not everyone considers your unsolicited advice to be helpful and that it can actually be hurtful. But it’s incredibly clear you’re not willing to be sensitive to what these words do to people. Incredibly condescending.
