Speaking of a mother’s love, Chimamanda Adichie once said: “…the completeness, the wholesomeness of this love. It’s just a different thing from anything I’ve ever experienced in my life.”
Many in the African literary community would agree with her that a mother’s love is powerful and worthy of celebration. We saw this sort of appreciation demonstrated yesterday in the most beautiful ways on social media by writers from across the continent.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, writers shared their love and gratitude for their mothers, wives, and children.
We’ve put together a collection of some of these lovely tributes.
