Nigerian-American singer, Jidenna Theodore Mobisson, better known mononymously as Jidenna has joined a million people in the world to celebrate their mothers today.
Jidenna took to social media to pen down a lengthy lovely message for his mother, recalling all the inspiration and love he got from her since childhood.
Read his full mesage below:
“Dear Mama Dukes aka Buddha Baby aka Mrs. Claus, each year I grow I realize just how deeply you’ve shaped me. Dad was loud and outgoing, naturally charismatic in the spotlight. You would rather play the corner, but your presence is no less felt due to how jolly your smile is and how curious your lovely eyes are.
All my friends love you because of how chill you are. All of our family cherishes you because of how reliable you are. You are the most consistent and stable person I’ve ever met. You have a way of being a rock in the most turbulent times. You find a way to be happy or neutral despite anyone’s mood.
You wake up with the same smile every day. You make checklists while you drink your coffee every morning. You’re easily committed to reading your kindle and riding the peloton religiously.
You are truly self-motivated and independent. You find simple joys in different crafts, hobbies, passions, and conversations with family. You love traveling and taking pictures of your adventures.
You’re highkey everything my generation aspires to be in one beautiful woman. I thank God that I have your DNA code in me. Much of what people admire in me is just a remixed version of you. Thank you for raising me. Thank you for loving me. I am infinitely grateful to be your son. #happymothersday”
