“Happy birthday to my best friend, the love of my life, the most wonderful mother, you are my source of motivation. Thank you for all the support you have given me for so many years. I remember in 2006 in London when we lived in a small two-bedroom apartment, the first time I gave you a present for your birthday, I went to a store called Tkmax, and from there I bought you a handbag which didn’t cost me much. That day you were so happy to receive it, your eyes were shining, you had thanked me a thousand times when this bag had only cost me 250€ (150,000 frs)
"You took it every time ‘we were going out together and it touched me so much to the point where I asked you the question: [what can I offer you that will make you happy if I have the means] and you answered me saying: [if you have the means I would like you to offer me a Hermès bag] and I asked you the price, you told me: [it’s expensive it’s not our level because it costs around 3000€ (2 million francs) and precisely I told you that day that: [I would never buy a bag at this price]
"But thank God I offered you several bags for years, I’m so proud of how far we’ve come together. Thank God it was not easy for me to carry out this project without you knowing who the instigator was. I had to make you understand that this building located just 50m from the United States Embassy in Yaoundé is in the continuity of NOKAY17, and I knew that you could never suspect it, that in reality this building is intended for you.
"It was my dream to offer you this gift oliboobooooo apartments in memory of our small apartment in London, in a building where it was not easy for us, here is how I was able to realize this dream today, and I am proud of it.
"You are everything to me, MY ONLY ONE LOVE FOR LIFE. Do with this building whatever you want, you are not answerable to anyone; neither to me nor to your children.
"Eat, spend, run, jump, it’s up to you, have fun, do what you want.”
Song played for several clubs in Europe but his best moments came in the English Premier League when he played for Arsenal.
