Fade Ogunro Mum
Fade Ogunro: Dear Mama,
Growing up you made some brave decisions that at the time I did not understand. The older I got the more I understood that everything you did was for the benefit of your children.
Your selflessness, your sacrifice, your words of wisdom, your strength, your support. I pray I can be half the woman you are for my kids.
You are now my mum and my dad, my friend, my confidant, my business advisor and even in the most difficult of times you taught me to turn to be strong and helped me know God better.

There is no one like you and for that I know I too am special. I thank God everyday for you.
In all lifetimes I will always love you! ❤️❤️❤️ #HappyMothersDay

    I love my mum so much. She’s sacrificed so much for me that it brings tears to my eyes when I think of it. If I can do half of what my mum has done for me for my kids then I will be so grateful to God. If your mum is next to you, hug and kiss her. If your mum isn’t next to you, call her and tell her how much you appreciate her. And if unfortunately she isn’t with us anymore, please say a prayer for her. Mothers are gems that can never be replaced. To anyone here who’s a mom I say kudos and may everything you touch turn to gold IJN!

      Nene, they actually do much. I lost my mother when I was 8, and my brother was 5. And since then, my father has been our guardian angel. He refused to re-marry because of us. So many things I have to say..but I ll just leave it. But please, dont ever say fathers dont do anything, cos some of us without mothers actually grew up with a father and a mother all together in one man.

      Father’s Day is celebrated as well, not as well as Mother’s Day of course, but in the past few years it’s gotten more popular.
