She went down memory lane to speak about her popular son who was a musician, but immediately she was asked how she feels hearing his music over the radio , she answered ” I weep , shed tears but would pray to God to let his children live long and bury me .
Mama Morenike lost her son, Orlando Owoh about 10 years after a brief illness .
Mama is very neat
One thing that cannot be taken away from the old woman is her neatness. She is very neat and her environment is clean so also the centenarian herself is very neat showing evidence of good living . She walks slowly and with dignity .Her sparsely decorated living room with sofa chairs makes the place beautiful. She said “My son , I am always neat and my children and Orlando’s friends take good care of me you should thank them on my behalf”.
If Orlando is alive today he would have been 84, and according to speculations mama is over 100 years of age. Considering her good stature many guess that the old woman cannot be less than 100 years of age while some doubted it but she declared ” I don’t know my age but I know I am over 100 years of age. All my friends have gone like Madam Eunice, Madam Adenike, , Mrs Asagba , Madam Caroline Oladoyin in fact all my friends have died ,I am the only one remaining. That is why I am saying I want to go , there is nothing I am still doing on earth”, she said with shaky voice.
