I stood from a distance as she pulled a ‘Ghana must go’ full of hair close and said ‘hair is finished, everyone please go and come back next week, these ones have been paid for’. I looked at her in admiration as her store was full of people with bags of her hair and even the number she had in the ‘Ghana must go’ was a lot and all I could do was think of the money she had made. It blew my mind and I was in that thought when I heard ‘Come dear, did you get any hair?! I looked up and realized she was talking to me, I still wasn’t sure and she asked me to come closer, I went and she said she liked my face and she gave me a pack she kept for someone else saying she would find a way to replace it. I smiled. She was sweet to me and that made me really happy. Rest In Peace ma’am!

This is very heartbreaking . I was honoured to meet you in your store in London in 2011. You were very gracious and kind. You were both regal and royal yet you treated everyone with enormous respect. You definitely left a lasting impression on me. Rest in peace game changer. May the Lord give your family and friends the fortitude to bear this loss.
