Hi darlings,

Good day and welcome to another exciting edition of #throwbackthursday...

My Throwback Story

It was a beautiful evening so many years ago. My friend's mother just got delivered of a baby boy after so many years of having only her.

My friend screamed in tears when she was sharing the good news with me.
"So I will yet have someone to call my blood.
So I will no longer be called a witch who wanted to live all by herself.
So now I have someone to play with".

Be calm, I told her with so much tears in my eyes. I could totally relate with this.

If you are from the part of my country where my friend hails from, you might understand how my friend felt... She was from a place where rumors are better believed than facts. She was from a place where an only child is accused of stopping her siblings from coming to join him/her.

Having a second child join their home was a dream come true for my friend and her family. It was everything to them and they were ready to paint the town red.

The naming ceremony is called ikomo ceremony in Yoruba language.
The ikomo is culturally held on the eighth day of the child’s life. On that day, the chosen names are revealed to family and guest present at the joyful occasion. There’s plenty to eat and drink and most importantly, prayers are offered on the child’s behalf.


About my throwback picture

We, the friends of the new sister(my friend) didn't want to be left out so we decided to have our "aso ebi".
The idea was to dress like alhajas which was why I was dressed that way in the picture. There was lots and lots of things to eat and of course many reasons to laugh.

PS: My friend and I have lost contacts, we are now in various cities and have gotten busy with our individual lives. Thanks to #throwbackthursday. This picture took me down Memory Lane and all the memories I shared with my friend are back. This is what #throwbackthursday are for!
