Growing up with an African mum is undoubtedly one of the most treasured memory that most of us have in common.
That is why when Twitter created #Africanmumchallenge, thousands of people came out to share their most memorable moments with their mothers.
The results were hilarious.
Let’s see how many you can relate to
When you drop something in the kitchen and she threatens to add it to your dowry payment
She questions you about everything even your Whatsapp profile picture
When she asks you to cook and then starts nagging every two minutes
She never asks why you lied but waits until your home for a time of reckoning
Then she gives you the whooping of a lifetime while she talks like this
And your siblings won’t dare to get involved because they’ll be beaten too
Seriously, you know this because she’s ever beaten you for snitching on your siblings
When she won’t let you eat before you do what she asked you to do
But loves to over feed you because no child of hers will ever be called skinny!
And she is very generous in the kitchen
Mums are everything!
They always have your back, will always take care of you and love you unconditionally.
Have you talked to yours today? Make that call and tell her thank you for being so awesome.
