This Sunday is mother’s Day in Nigeria! That’s why we wanted to dedicate this article to all of the hardworking mums out there! Just think about what we would do without them?!

There are three different names for mother in Nigeria: Nne, Iya, Uwa

They make us happy, because they love to see us smile. If you want to give your mother more than just a smile, flowers and cards would be the most commonly used mother’s day present. But what about cooking something really special for your mum? Have a look at our favourite recipes for inspiration.

Mothers are strong! The strongest, to be precise. Who else is capable of taking loving care of their family, protect it, and keep in mind everything important at the same time! That should really earn our respect.

Powerwomen really do deserve the admiration that they receive

The most important thing is that mums are always there for us, no matter what! That is why we love them and that is why we need them. So let’s give three cheers to the shoulder we can always lean on!

Did you know that over 170 countries all around the world celebrate mother’s day? With good reason! After all, mothers have a true talent when it comes to conquer different obsticles at the same time. Therefore they are an inspiration and a role model for all of us. Mothers take care of you, no matter what, which is why we should celebrate our mums every day! In particular we wish all a fantastic Nigerian Mother’s Day on Sunday!
