A Nigerian man @Muniirr took to Twitter to share photos from the opening ceremony of his mom’s filling station.
He also recounted how his mom sold kerosene in cans, before finally getting to own her own filling station.He tweeted;
Grew up watching My Mum selling kerosine from a 20litres can . Years later here she is opening her own station after operating under other dealers . Superwoman ! The real Hustler ! Rabi Oil way !
This is coming after a Nigerian photographer and filmmaker, Ejiro Onobrakpor took to Instagram to celebrate his mother, who now lives in America. According to him, his mum used to sell rice to conductors and drivers at a bus stop in Ajegunle, a slum in Lagos.
I reckon, there’s nothing more joyful than the feeling of a child that grew up in the slums to see his mom that gave up everything, including the clothes on her back to give him and his siblings an education live to taste and enjoy the labour of her love.
The woman that sold rice at a bus-stop in Ajegunle to conductors and drivers now lives in America. 😭❤ Malle(Warri for “mother”)words can never express how much we love you ❤❤❤
There are also many super moms in Nigeria. It was an emotional moment on Friday, July 7, 2017, when 42-year-old Folasade Dairo was walked down the aisle in the arms of her son.
Folasade Dairo and her sweetheart, Nick Dimpka tied the knot in Maryland USA.
The gorgeous bride, a mother of four, walked down the aisle in the arms of her son and the stirring picture, caught so impressively by Klala Photograhy (@Klalaphotography) went viral.
The Nigerian mum who glowed on her son’s arm to the the altar said after the beautiful ceremony:
“My life is a testimony, at 42 with four beautiful children when my ex left, he told me ‘who will want you with four kids?’
“But to God be the glory, Olowogbogboro gave me a God fearing man and here I am today.
“So dreams do come true. Faithful God. Thanks.”
“[He kept looking at his bride like:] ‘where have you been all my life that I have been searching for happiness?”
“We are just so glad to be part of their story” she concludes.
