I'll marry him for you!

Me: Mummy, it's getting too much. Shei it's my party? I should decide how big or small I want it and I really don't want a big party

Her: Do you realise this is the last party I'm paying for?

*my heart skipped a beat*

Her: And 21 is a big deal so I'll have my friends inside and you'll have your friends outside. You can throw your little party while I throw my big party

Me: *laughing and falling on the bed* why are you even throwing a party? What if I don't want your friends here? It's my birthday, right? And if we're fighting this much over my 21st birthday party what will my wedding be like?

Her: Uwuh! (Tiv exclamation) You won't have a say there! You're having a big wedding and I'll take care of everything. Matter of fact, if you're too lazy to go to the wedding just stay at home and I'll marry him and bring him home to you!

My mum is crazy like that. The talk of parties and weddings bring out a hilarious side of her that you can't help but love. She is my God-rep on earth, the strongest person I know and I absolutely love her.

That conversation happened a couple of years ago and it makes me laugh every time I think about it. I doubt that she can remember saying any of those things so Chiki I hereby command you to print this post and send it to her :p

It's my mum's birthday today and I miss her very much. I'm sure she'll have her friends and my aunts over, buy a big cake, get aunty Elizabeth to pepper some sexy chicken and fresh fish and just have a ball at home. Chei! Walahi, i miss naija!

Mummy, I love you, miss you and thank you for all you've done for me
May God continue to bless and keep you safe

Kolomentality... it runs in the family!
Goofing off in the kitchen before my 21st birthday party
Plastic smiling for the camera cos we couldn't wait to get back to the party.
This was at home and not in a studio by the way *side eye*
How are you guys doing? Please say a quick prayer for my mum today and have a wonderful day :*
