God made no mistakes the day I walked into her house which she made my home for almost 15 years. It’s been a week since she passed and it’s extremely numbing.”

When Mummy would freak out, Mum would say, Yinka, fi omo yi sile fun mi, which means, ‘Leave her alone for me’. I discovered who I wanted to be early because mum gave me the freedom to do,”
