      This was too powerful and emotional. What a beautiful, strong woman. I need to learn more about Yoruba language, it expresses feelings so deeply in a unique way.

      Wow! Taiwo ajai lycett is truly elegant and master in her work. The way she speaks of her husband brings tears to my eyes. That’s what you can true love.
      Kemi, I’m very proud of you. You are one talented, multidimensional woman. When she was doing the cooking series, most naijas criticized her. Then when she moved to another project, she also got backlash for not being focused on one thing. You can never please these folks. Continue to inspire us.

    You know this isn’t the first time I have seen her interviewed and asked about her husband and she said something that got.IN her words ” No one has ever been loved as much as I have been loved”………A woman of that age and after such a long time after his passing still has these fond memories of her husband…….I want to be able to genuinely say that of my husband wherever I get married

    This brought tears to my eyes. And it just made me realize that no matter how long a loved one has been gone for; you still miss them, and feel the pain. May God continue to rest his soul and May God bless you Madam Taiwo.
