I was surprised when someone like you said this. Are you just hearing about her for the first time? Indomie pikin, go read your history.

Do you know if that's the secret behind her Longevity.
After all, ALL POWER belongs to GOD

Rather than researching into the LIFE and Times of such an adorable wonder of Nature, you resorted to what I don't know.

IF a WHITEMAN visits to AFRICA to take up this MAMA's issue as a case study and furthermore put his facts in a book, your department in the University will end up naming that BOOK as one of the prerequisites you need to study anthropology, philosophy and many more.

I believe you have finally imbibed the SENSE in my Write-up..

By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY 2u, ANCESTOR MAMA.
Wish you many more Years ahead.
