“Tushbee and the widows”, was inspired out of love for my late grandmother. She was a widow. She use to share her stories with me after my grandfather passed on. I cared so much for when she was alive. After her death, I decided to extend the same love and care to as many widows as possible
She love the arts, she loves nature….
Recently she interviewed Femi Odugbemi, Africa’s documentary king!
