For Michelle, who is a daughter of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, experiences of life begins at 18.
The young lady, who is currently studying in Manitoba, Canada, today, July 11 is her 18th birthday.
Her mum, Mercy, who is now a single parent, having separated from her husband, Lanre Gentry in 2017, decided counseling her daughter.
With a pre-birthday post on Instagram where she admonished the young girl to beware of boys and stay focused, Mercy put up another post where she also advised her daughter to grow up and not commit some of the mistakes she (Mercy) made as a mum.
An elated Mercy wrote,
As you turn 18 today, I know all of you in that house say some kind of things behind me and even to my face ? “Mummy is too hard, once mummy sees you idle she must find something for you to do “?? Mummy likes shouting, mummy is always on our necks, mummy this, mummy that?… Now that you are on your own even if you don’t want to tell me, I am sure you appreciate all that drilling I gave you?!…… Michelle I know I quarrel with you sometimes but I do it out of love, out of the fact that I want you to be a better person than me, if possible I want to be there to put you tru the right path so you don’t make my mistakes in life! …. I pray every day and night that my greatest achievement in life, be you own starting point!….I am grateful to God for the kind of bond we share, I am grateful that we relate as friends, I am happy that you came into my life and became my one and only closest friend! At times when i reminisce on some of our gists, I laugh and miss you so much ???? …..
