My son, my friend

I remember the first comment he left on this blog, I’d written a post about a love song and implied that Nigerian men were not romantic. His comment had me smiling and nodding at the wisdom behind the words. I knew I definitely wanted to get to know this guy… In a non-romantic way (I just had to add that)

    His blog turned out to be interesting, funny, thought provoking, inspiring, delightful… Trust me, I could rave on and on about his blog. I totally feel in love with his short and zany posts. We also connected on google plus and for the first time I realised that google hangouts was not a useless waste of app space.
Whose eyeballs are bigger?

  Ugo recently adopted me as his blog mother, I guess it was because I was always bullying him on BBM to blog (Some other people would never blog even if you bully them night and day, they know themselves). I’m tickled pink by his choosing me to be his blog momma but I have no idea how to be a good blog mom. I have good role models(Don’t get me wrong), fantastic ones for that matter. Perhaps that’s the problem Ernie, Naija mum and Adannem are excellent bloggers (I have 3 blog mums… I’m fab like that) and I fall short… very short.

  Ugo has been such a huge blessing to me, he’s been listening ear, caring heart, wise lips and analytical brain and in this post dedicated to him I want to tell him how grateful I am for his friendship and his immense support. I hope I can live up to being a mom 😉



  1. I can imagine how difficult it was for you to mold these words cause it took you ages and I know you will always wonder if it is adequate enough. All I can say is I am blessed having the best blog mum in the world. (Shines teeth like brother Duru – JdB).
    I am happy to know that I have not just 1, but 3 blog grandmothers – chisos… only me!. You had better tell them how their blog grandson is doing. I am just blessed.
    Mami, thanks for your blogternal endorsement. Love you so… I will keep being a good blog son, inshalah!
