I have decided to publish the tributes that were sent to me on my birthday. I feel really blessed to have made such an impact in the lives of people especially young people. Please note that these accounts are uncut, unedited and only represent a snapshot of the many eulogies and tributes that were sent my way yesterday. 11th November 2016. I would like to thank all my well wishers for their love and kindness towards me over the years past.
Looking unto my creator for the Grace to finish my race well and opportunities to impact more lives positively and ennoble creation appropriately. Amen

Mum today is a very special day, everybody is celebrating another year of prosperity with the ‘most remarkable and awe-inspiring woman’ on the planet.
Today I just want to give you another reminder of how much I cherish and appreciate having you in my life, you bring nothing but love and happiness into the lives of your children and into the lives of anyone who meets you but that is only one of the many talents the Lord has bestowed upon you.
One of your greatest talents is your ability to succeed anywhere you go in life, where ever God decides to put you, you will always persevere and self-motivate yourself. Every time I think about you, I just reflect on how much you have taught me and how much we have been through, I have really tested the concept on unconditional love with you and yet you have always had my back, always been at my side.
You are so comforting, nurturing and caring that’s why babies love you they can see the “beauty and love in your soul”, I appreciate that beauty and love so much.
I hear so many things happening to people, how they are estranged from their parents due to disagreements etc I know for a fact that can never happen to us we have too great of a relationship despite our arguments in the past you are one of the most important figures in my life and there is no way I can ever diminish your name because you really have tried for my siblings and I and we will make you proud!
It brought a tear to my eye when you were telling me about all the happy birthday messages you were getting from other peoples children because it just illustrates how you have so much love to give, it shows how much of a positive effect you bring into people’s lives
it shows how amazing you are and that makes me very proud that you can endure the herculean task of putting up with me and still have time to work positively impact other’s people’s lives.
There aren’t a lot of people in this world who are as ingenious, passionate and tenacious as you and I count myself lucky to be able to have such a role model in my life, someone who will call me out when I’m doing wrong, someone who will discipline and mentor me to the best of their ability, you do nothing half-heartedly and that is quality I am sure all your business partners cherish.
This is a tribute to my mentor and my mother and I pray you will continue to succeed and prosper in the Jesus’ name, you truly are a treasure, you deserve nothing but the best and the best is what you will get. I love you Mum!

Words cannot express the joy I feel in my heart. Not just because today is your day but because today is OUR (YA4NAIJA) day 😀. You have impacted many lives including myself and have gingered me to strive for greatness, to yearn for good, to aspire for success. Indeed, you are a Woman of all seasons.
My prayer for you mum is that as you mark another year in your many years of existence, the Lord Almighty would strengthen you, guide you and grant you the Wisdom to.continue to be a force to reckon with and we are sure that one day the world would also celebrate you.
Happybday to my mummy Dr bcee.
