Indeed, there is nothing like a mother’s love and many stories on the internet continue to prove this to be true. Just recently, Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke, took to social media to celebrate his mother on her birthday.
Narrating how she struggled hard to cater for their family, he revealed that after his father’s baking business crumbled, she took up the responsibility. He stated that even when things got really tough and his mother suffered domestic violence, she stayed for him(Gideon).
He wrote: “true story: After primary school (at tade nurs/pry apapa), there came a huge government clampdown on bromate flour. bakers were banned from touching it. what did you think gave “agege bread” the weight? bromate. this meant that over 500 bags of my father’s baking flour were put to ruins. they all had bromate!”
”That was when my father’s bakery business rolled to a grinding stop. not a dough was milled. my father reduced to a 3rd of his original size. diabetes showed up like rain. You braced what we now call domestic violence, at a time it was claimed to be the rights of patriarchy. you stayed for the child.”
”At this point, secondary school education was not sure for your only child. That was when you got suited and booted up! you showed up as a superhero mummy. what??? My pikin nor go go school??? ju-ly (u lie)”
”From bread to puff-puff, to chin-chin to beer parlour to scaling all ur abada and trinkets (1 by 1) to mama nonso…..omo the story loooong. Happy birthday to my hero. I will always love you. To be a man is not a day’s job. To be a woman is to give life.”
