Gospel film actress, Moyowa Oyone okitikpi has taken to her social media page to celebrate her supermom, Mrs. Iyabode Celestina Omoyenni as she turns a year older today. Taking to her Instagram page, she uploaded series of her lovely pictures with captions revealing the different sides of her mom ranging from being a loving woman to being a disciplinarian.
She wrote; Happy birthday to WORLD’S best mother. My sweet selfless mother. Never imagined we will ever be best buddies. She used discipline to remove the spirit of fighting with rams, climbing nepa poles and doing fighting contest with neighbour’s kids (boys o and I won).
There was this time in primary 3 when I used to be afraid of the dark. Mummy got so mad at me and threatened that I would sleep alone in the dark that night. Trust me I planned ahead. I used my feeding money to buy candle and matches 20naira in total. I cut the candle in tiny pieces and stick them in my pant.
I strolled into the room that night feeling like a champ and everyone hailing me. Your babe slept through the night o. But I quickly woke up at the first crow of the cock to get rid of the evidence but found out that my mum had placed a lantern in the room through the night (couldn’t bare to see me sleep in the dark, me that slept off into my father’s village). Didnt sleep in darkness after all. Everyone came in hailing me for my bravery and I was dancing until the candle fell out of my pant and I was casted. That night showed me a side of my mum I would love and cherish forever. More stories to come.
In insult and cane from my mother, please choose cane. Even though it’s an advice insult on your bad behaviour followed by a composed song from God knows where. It will refine your brain and make you think about your past, present and future. I packed my load to leave the house 15 times when I was 7 years old (na food chase me enter house back because she refused to beg me).
In primary 2 she taught me about female genital mutilation and unfortunately for me the next day, some people came to give us vaccine. They lined up girls separately from girls and took us to another class. One woman among them just brought out blade. I thought they came to circumcise me ni o.
I ran throughout the school screaming “help me, they want to circumcise me”. They had to call my mother to come bail me out and reexplain. Her words stick to you like a birth mark. Not to talk of she not eating so you can eat. Not closing her eye to sleep if you are sick. Pretending not to be sick to you wont worry. Worse is if you switch off and she can’t reach you or if you dont pick her call, that’s worse o.
So many stories but let me stop here. Nobodys food has tasted like yours ever! Night stories are forever epic and scary too. Especially the lion that eats children that opens doors for strangers. You have supported my ministry in ways I can’t understand. Hype woman.
I fell sick sometime back. I had difficulty breathing. I had never seen momma so scared. She watched me day and night. I even felt big baby as she caressed my head. She cried in the doctor’s office and they examined me. Had to turn away to be strong.
Those were moments of excruciating pain but you made it less painful as every breath seemed like my last. Or even the time I had accident. You were and still forever will be my superhero Iyabode celestina OMOYENNI the daughter of Oseh Johnson. SEE PHOTOS BELOW
