In his words, “Early Morning deliveries from across the pond! 😪
My parents prayed for excellent children, not houses, cars, or “things”. They asked my sisters for stellar degrees; one got a first-class in Finance, the other got a Distinction in Engineering. They asked me for a Grammy, and here we are. I am a product of sacrifice! Thank God and thank you all again! ❤️”
