Ever imagined how Mother’s Day was celebrated before the gods blessed us with social media? We can hardly picture what it was like back then so we’ll just face front in gratitude for these platforms that allow us a glimpse into the lives of famous people and the lovely women who raised them.
Mother’s Day this 2017 has been no less awe-inspiring as we’ve seen celebrities eulogize the women who birthed them, female celebrities who double as mums have taken time to give themselves well-deserved praise for raising their own kids and the men have also praised their wives for being good mums.
In the spirit of Mothering Sunday, we bring you some of the messages that have drawn ‘awwww’ from us as shared by your favourite famous people.
Happy Mother’s Day Mum!! Thank you so much for raising us in the right way. you’ve taught us to be selfless and God fearing. We pray you live longer in good health and abundant wealth. You will continue to see your children children children in Jesus name. We love you mum.
My mother … Yesterday was your son’s wedding… I fought tears through it all, wishing You and Dad were there. I imagined and looked, lost but … Healing. I am consoled by these thoughts of how happy you were on my wedding day …just months to your passing… Oh sweet mother. You were strong, resilient, powerful, you showed me Christ even though were not born into that faith and even when life threw you into being a widow, you staggered up and held us walking, crawling to the finish line. I love you Omo baba alagbafo of adatan, Omo iya Olowu of Owu, Omoge Oluwatoyin nee Oguntade. Omo EGBA to sure! Fine woman keep turning heads in heaven my outstandingly beautiful mother. We continue to honor you. Yes you were here. You left your mark. Cherish your mother today. Mrs Oluwatoyin Amori Jalade 53-01. #happymothersday #mamajal
Happy Mother’s Day To My Super Hero.
If Not For You, I’d Be Pretty Messed Up.
Thank You For Your Strength
Thank You For Supporting Me And Helping Me Chase My Dreams
Thank You For Driving Me To Auditions
For Attending My Shows
For Watching My Movies (even though you give me ‘bad eye’ when you see 💏 scenes😂😂😂)
Thank You For Being My Cheerleader
For Encouraging Me
For Chastising Me (Even though it was too much sometimes😑😂)
If Not For You, I Wouldn’t Be Doing My Dream Job
If Not For You, I wouldn’t Have The Strength And Confidence That I Do
If Not For You, I Would Never Have Figured Out That I’m Special, That I’m Enough, That I’m Strong, That I’m Beautiful.
If I End Up Being Just Half The Mother You Have Been To Me, My Children Will Be Lucky To Have Me.
Thank You For ALL The Sacrifices You Made.
I Honour You Today, Tomorrow, Always, Forever.
I Love You.
Happy mother’s day to my sweet mama, my prayer warrior, my super woman, my everything, I celebrate u mama mi toh pretty, Abiamo gidi & to all d real mothers out there I say weldone ma 😉😉😗😗😗😗😍😍😍
Behold the sweetest mother in the world. People ask me why do I carry people’s problem on my head and try to make everyone happy. Might be strange to a lot of people but not me cos growing up watching you be a mother to everybody around you was a beautiful sight. You will sell Akara and sometimes not make profit cos you have fed the entire street for free. You made me understand that a good name is definitely better than silver or gold. You made me see the importance in sharing happiness. How it’s better for everyone to be happy around you than for you to be happy alone. All of which has made me the man I am today. I LOVE YOU MUM. Happy Mother’s Day. 💐💐💐💐💐
IT MEANT A LOT TO HAVE JOINED YOU ON THIS TRIP AND THE TINY INCONVENIENCE IS NOTHING NEAR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR US. I THANK YOU.
I CELEBRATE YOU MAMA AND ALL THE WOMEN WHO ARE MAKING SACRIFICES DAILY, STRETCHING THEMSELVES AND GOING OVER AND ABOVE FOR A BETTER FAMILY, FOR A BETTER SOCIETY #HAPPYMOTHERSDAY

Even Tonto Dikeh’s estranged husband, Oladunni Churchill seized the moment…
Happy Mother’s Day to my mother and mama king.
