They say Fame is nothing but Grace is everything and i pray for grace in everything i do I’m not a Cele member but Late Osofa gave me the name and everything Late Osofa said about Helen Paul is coming to pass I dedicate this to every mother, may God make you strong enough to survive and enjoy the fruit of your labour.
