Toyin Lawani and son
One of Nigeria's most popular celebrity stylists, Toyin Lawani has celebrated her son's birthday in a very unique manner.
The fashion queen whose son turned 6 years old recently, made the boy hawk fruits on the street for his birthday photoshoot to teach him important values.
The serial entrepreneur said she made the decision so he can "walk in the shoes of the less for a day"
She said her son learnt a lot from the experience and had so many questions. She shared photos from the shoot, including one where her son Tenor had a tray of oranges on his head.
She then wrote: "For my sons 6th Birthday shoot I made him walk in the shoes of the less for a day , we sold fruits to people and hawked in traffic , few people recognized us but didn’t care ,I even tried selling to them ,will post a video later and he learnt a lot from it, He didn’t stop asking me Questions when we got home ,anytime we drive past kids and I give them money ,he’s always saying why this, why that. Now he understands.
Life isn't rosy all the time !
For those of us with pot bellies
Blessed with abundance of jellies
Observing table is not our thing.
There are others unlike us with flattened
Tummies tossed to and fro hunger-driven
Beaten by the reality of our lack.
For those of us unlike them born
With silver spoons shouldn't forget
That circumstances and predicaments are cousins, we must teach our kids never to look down on anyone because they are more privileged. As Parents , We should teach our kids how to accommodate others with love .
Happy Birthday @lordmaine2 keep growing in grace , we have so much content to post from today."
