Adieu mama! You can be proud your son is a shining star. I never knew Ahmed Musa’s mum is Edo. I thought he is 100% north.
Mama Ekpokhai, May God gives you eternal peace. your passing is glorious on earth as it is in heaven. God Blessed you that He gave you a super son who is now giving joy to millions around the Would.
Nigerians will never forget you because of your son. Adieu, Mama Musa.
Around the World.
What a great woman, she definitely is. She a Christian woman from Edo state marrying a northern Muslim from Borno state, who lost her husband early. But single handedly raised her children and encouraging her son to purse his dream in football.
No wonder Musa has become a unifying captain for both the north and south, and also the Christians and Muslims and a great leader in Super Eagles.
Adieu mama, as wish you eternal rest.
