Martina Ighalo, mother of Nigeria international and ex-Manchester United forward Odion Ighalo, on Thursday clocked a year older.
Ighalo uploaded a video of himself and her on social media, expressing his love for her.
“Happy birthday to my mama…MAMA I LOVE YOU with all my heart,” he said.
Actors, comedians, and football stars including his former teammate at Manchester United Eric Bailly have trooped to the comment section of the post to celebrate Ighalo’s mother.
This is coming days after Ighalo, who is based in Saudi Arabia, flaunted in a video posted to Instagram his Rolls-Royce Phantom which is reportedly worth N200 million.
He captioned the video, “Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
The 32-year-old, who recently switched clubs in Saudi Arabia, is included in the Super Eagles’ list for the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off against the Black Stars of Ghana scheduled to take place later this month.
