A Nigerian man, Ugochukwu Tony Oputa from Ozubulu, Anambra State on Sunday, shared a heartwarming story of his father and uncles' reunion with a generous Akara seller, who used to give them akara balls everyday on their way to school forty years ago, IgbereTV reports.

The woman is now over 100 years old, still healthy and agile.

Read Oputa's post below:

"Today, while having the usual morning round table discus with my kinsmen, my Dad recollected the story of a lady who sold Akara while they were very small. He stated how the lady would always give them Akara every day they passed her place while going to school.

My Dad’s brothers also stated the same. They said it got to a point that the lady would deliberately keep aside some portion of Akara to give to them anytime that stopped by. This was over 3-4 decades ago, and the lady should be way above 100 years now.

My Dad said thoughts of the Lady had always crossed his mind and was of the opinion that he had an obligation to see her, at least while she was still alive.

My Dad’s brothers bought into the idea and within minutes, we decided to drive and go locate “Daada”

When we arrived at her place, it was amazing to see how agile she seemed after living for over a century.

Immediately we got to her, she hugged every one of us with excitement and rubbed our foreheads with the charcoal on her fingers, while raining blessings on us.

Amazingly, Daada was able to recognize the “Children”

They recounted their experiences with her, mehn, you need to see her excitement.

The thing is, she never had any child of her own, but her kindness to these children was phenomenal, and for these “children” to visit her unexpectedly after many years, in remembrance of her act of kindness, it was a great deal to her.

She entertained us with groundnuts.

When we were about to leave, everyone put funds together and gave to Daada for Christmas, and Daada told us to come together, went in to bring get her Bible, and started praying for everyone.

She went on to tell us to write our prayer points individually in her Bible.

It was an awesome experience for me, as I left there feeling so blessed.

She prayed for us from her heart.

In her words when translated,

“I’m not leaving yet, but still, you all will live longer than me”,

“As you came together today, please when I finally leave this world, you all should come when I’m being laid to rest”

May our good deeds always be remembered.

@UgoOputa"

Pictures Please

Lovely heart warming story, pictures would be the icing in the cake.

If it was Nollywood film, she would have poisoned that Akara or used one of the boys for sacrifice so she can have children but the children will end up wayward then one day before the end of the movie she will confess then run mad and die

So the moral of the story is: Don't allow Nollywood deceive you, not everybody is evil, not everybody is a witch or wizard out to get you no matter their age, gender or tribe.

Let love lead. Mama now has a large family, larger than her biological family, to me it's an economically friendly familythink about it she didn't have to do much for them just small acts of kindness and they remembered her. She didn't give birth to them, pay for school fees etc

I even prefer this type of family more because it's more economical and due to distance and time apart you people grow fonder than the family you get to see everyday which you end up fighting more with

So You what little acts of kindness are you doing? No be to dey curse people from morning till night oh

Please do good.

Generosity is its own reward.

All these scammers have killed the honest generosity in people's hearts. Now, even when we give, we will be having a suspicious feeling at the back of our minds that we may have been duped.

Even with my suspicious nature, I cannot count the number of times I've been duped in the past year alone.
