Read Femi Fani Kayode’s Poem To His Igbo Wife

This guy sure loves his Igbo wife. He has not allowed tribalism and anti-Igboism to becloud his mind, or he has cleansed himself of such, it would appear. Read below:


From the hills of Ohafia and the valleys of Abriba comes you that makes me smile.
From the forests of Umahia and the lush green fields of Nanka comes you that brings me joy.

From the eastern shores of our nation where stars shine brightly and from where come men whose spirits cannot be broken comes you that gives me hope.

From the lineage of those who dare to believe and from the stock of those who soar like eagles comes you that creates new beginnings.

God brought you my way and has given me a new lease of life. What a gift you are- not just to me but also to humanity. Your star shall shine from generation to generation.

Your strength and confidence shall speak for you all the days of your life. Your talents shall open every door that you seek to enter.
Your beauty: every radiant and everlasting, shall shake the very foundations of humanity and melt even the hardest of hearts.
You are Snowhite and you shall remain as white as snow from beginning to end.

Your sun shall never set and God’s light, not darkness, shall follow you all the days of your life.
You are not just the Queen of Pageants but the Queen of the Ages.
From generation to generation humanity shall testify of your kindness, your love and your good works. That is your destiny and that is your portion.

Let not the storms of life ever cause you to give up or forget it. With you there is hope: you are Snowhite, the one that makes me smile and brings me joy.

Happy birthday!

So, what do you think?
