11 May 2020
Sunday, May 10, 2020 marked Mothers’ Day across the world; the day when we celebrate the superwomen who raised us.
Ugandan artistes did not miss out on the opportunity to praise the women who shaped, inspired and supported them through it all.
These artistes took to social media to let the women in their lives know how much they mean to them.
Here are some of their messages:
Ugandan artiste Bobi Wine shared his picture alongside that of his lovely mother, with a dotting caption. "A health worker, a midwife, a biological mother of 10 and a moral mother to hundreds. A hustler and a revolutionary that was my mother. Margaret Nalunkuuma aka Musawo. I still wonder how she made it because many times she had to play the role of father and mother. I celebrate you Maama and I will spend my life instilling your golden values in every person that God has blessed me to influence. Happy Mothers’ Day to you Maama. Don't worry, I will make you proud one day."
Sheebah Karungi shared a photo she recreated with her mother from her childhood moments explaining how much she loves and respects her mother's strength. "Mama, I love you but mostly, I respect your strength & courage. I got my tough skin from you mama. That’s why nothing shakes me. Am true to myself & where I come from because of you. There’s no way I can ever pay you back. But my plan is to show you that I understand. Through our life story, I've learnt that everything happens for a reason. You just have to trust the almighty I know we don’t choose our mother’s but if we had that choice, I would still choose you mama. You are loved & appreciated . May God continue keeping you safe, healthy & sound for more grand children . Love , Samali. Your sweet crazy last born happy mother’s day to all the mothers around the world.”
Pallaso shared a song he sang for his mother with a cute message. “My mother gave with no intent to receive. When situations got tough, Mama got tough too. When every one was weak, Mama was strong. When any problem came, Mama always knew the solution. And We were still too young to realize mama was still too young. You taught us how to love, forgive, forget and move on. You taught me how to write my name but most important of all, you taught me that family is everything. ****HAPPY MOTHERS DAY ***** I love you, Webale MAMA."
On his part, Ykee Benda appreciated his mum for raising him, and also thanked his wife for making him a dad.
