“What an excellent way to start the month! I was working on my lapy this morning when I heard a notification sound from my Nigerian line. I checked it after 15 minutes and saw the credit alerts.
I wish to express my profound gratitude to those who expressed their undiluted love toward me. I was surprised with the way people came for me financially, emotionally and spiritually.
I received a series of calls from different places around the globe. ‘OLORI, tell me how I can help, send your account details,’ was what I was hearing and seeing. Modupe o, I will continue to be a good girl.
Sisi’s perspectives, Adétutù Ọmo Ọba, you know words can’t describe how grateful I am.
I also want to thank all the bloggers and journalists who published my story, ‘Fisayo Soyombo, Wole Street Journal, God bless you.
