He went further to say that he always thanks God each time he realizes he raised the kids alone.

He wrote;

“Each time I realise I raised these two (2) alone as a single father, I always say “Alhamdulilah” 🙏🏿. I didn’t believe I could come this far, I did a lot to make this happen, even if it’s enslaving myself, I do it to see their smiles. Today I’m happy. I know I haven’t fail God raising them. I’m so grateful Lord. Alhamdulilah 🙏🏿”

@oloye__: Our future is greater because of men like you. Thank you for your service to humankind.

@snowice91: Ladies please learn:
Noticed that he did not say anything bad or cruel about their mother?

@itsOladeji1: You’re the father of the year. You’re the MAN.
On behalf of all good men and women around the globe, thank you bro. You’ll live to eat the fruit of your labour. Those kids will become great in life. Your laughter won’t turn to tears inshallah.

Thank you once again

@IcantBebordad: The very first frame is my absolute favorite. The children look so happy and well catered for, all bathed and ready for bed, clean matching pyjamas, dusting powder applied amply to protect them from prickly heat and rashes, well rounded full bellies and dishing us the peace sign. I don’t know why this makes me emotional, but as a mummy, I know the feeling of accomplishment I attain at that time of the day when all these have been put in place. I’m just here to tell u that u’re doing a great great job daddy and the blessings u’ll receive will be unmatched.
