Nerita Ezenwa, girlfriend of former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode, on Wednesday took to social media to celebrate her mother who clocked a year older.
She said in an Instagram post that the woman has been her “backbone, prayer warrior, teacher, and friend.”
Commenting further, Ms Ezenwa wrote, “To the most beautiful, selfless, and strong woman, I know. Mama, you’ve been my backbone, prayer warrior, teacher, and friend. Words can’t express how much I love and appreciate you. You will live long in good health and wealth. Happy Birthday Mom. I love you, Mama.”
Fani-Kayode reacted in the comment section, “Happy birthday to a wonderful lady and a great Daughter of Zion.”
Ezenwa, a former beauty queen, was present at Fani-Kayode’s triplets’ birthday party in May.
The ex-minister and another former beauty queen Precious Chikwendu fell out last year over allegations of domestic violence among others.
The duo is drawn in a legal battle for custody of their four children.
Fani-Kayode has been linked to several women since his union with Chikwendu collapsed.
