‘I want my mother back’ –Grieving Actress/Mom, Biodun Okeowo Pens Emotional Tribute To Late Mom

It is a sad season for the popular Nollywood actress and single mom, Biodun Okeowo. The mother-of-two lost her mother exactly a month ago.

Speaking about her mother’s death in an Instagram post, the grieving Nollywood diva revealed that she got the news of her mum’s death while she was in Canada, which made her feel it was a stunt to make her return back to Nigeria.

According to the actress, she didn’t believe the news of her mum’s death until she saw her lifeless body.

She wrote:

”Mummy today makes it a month that you left. 30 agonizing days of my life. March for me will never be the same. I can never forget that 6:am call while in Canada that we lost you.

It seems like a joke that morning. Seemed like it was a stunt to bring me back home. Not until I saw your lifeless body. Then I believe my only true lover is gone. My prayer warrior is gone! My one and only best friend, my confidant will not be there for me anymore. We fight, we make up yet no one compared to you in this whole world.

Sisi till your death you took care of me like I’m still a baby. A day before you left, mummy you washed my cloths and cooked Ikokore for me. Never knew that will be the last meal you will cook for me.

It still feels like a dream. Feels like someone will still wake me up and tell me it’s a prank. The cold now so intense, I’m shivering like a fish out of the water. Never believe we will plan your burial in 5 years to come. Mummy you were so strong and hardworking. You want to do everything by yourself and even do more for us your children.

Mummy I wish a come back to life is possible. Mummy I can’t just be myself again. Everything seems so meaningless to me since you left. Vanity!

Really trying to be strong but it’s so hard!!! I pray everyday, tho part of my prayers are unrealistic; I wish I can see you again. I wish God can perform a miracle. You really toiled for my brothers and I, especially for me, you did everything to make me who I am.

You singlehandedly strive for me. God really used you for us. If not for God and you mummy? Now mummy your dreams are coming true… why didn’t you wait a bit? At least lived some years in that house.

I want my mother!!! NOBODY can love me like you! I write every day thinking it will ease my pain but it only makes me more emotional and the tears won’t stop.

How can I get over you? How???Continue to RIP Cecilia.”

She had earlier talked about her mother’s last memories in a post she shared last month. She wrote:

”I saved this post, this epistle this write up for you mother, to use as celebration for my house warming. I intended to post your picture instead of the house… dedicating that achievement to you. But now you are gone????????????. This is painful oh God!!! Greatest loss????????????.

I woke up this morning laying on my bed, I heard my mom calling my daughter “bring your mom’s cloth so I can wash” at her old age my mother still want to serve me ????. I dare not say no to her or that I will dry clean my cloths o????. So I went down memory lane…????

You suffer too much for us especially me. Should I talk about the days at LUTH! Ha Mummy thank you so much. If you had left that goitre on my neck. How will I look today? Yes I might have done the surgery by now but it won’t be without fear and…. but You sold all you could to make sure it was removed at that tender age. You said my daughter is too beautiful to be disfigured…You did it all alone. I will never take you for granted my pearl.

And my kids came. Still you stood for me.Thank you for taking the responsibilities of these two on you. If you had left me when they came. Mother I won’t be where I am today. You took the burden of child rearing off me completely. Mine is only to breastfeed and the rest over to you.

You took my first son so I could go back to school. You said Abbey you must go to the university o! I took care of you, I’m your mother so why won’t I take care of your son? Go back to school your son is safe.
Mummy I wish I can go on and on. You’ve been a pillar.
I could have fallen if I don’t have you in my life…

Mummy you have started reaping the fruits of your labor may you eat till you’re fully toothless ????. I love you. Thanks for giving my life a meaning. If you know her and you see this please tell her I love her, she’s my god????.
For the late mothers I pray they continue to Rest In Peace????.
Please show love to Mother’s they are more than gold.
Wrote this last year…and now my mother is gone… ????.”
