John Boyega Message for Dad on Father’s Day
‘Pacific Rim‘ lead actor, John Boyega took time to appreciate his dad on Father’s day by recounting his childhood memory.
Samson Adegboyega, a Pentecostal minister in the United Kingdom whom son referred to ‘Mufasa’ got a lengthy and lovely piece from his son.
The actor remembered all the lovely memories and put it down in a social media post. He remembered when the dad took him to his first audition and several other pleasant memories.
In his words, ”Today, I remember when you chased after a man (to Mum’s horror lol) because he snatched a woman’s purse in front of you. With that Nigerian sprint, you got the ladies bag back”.
He also added ‘‘I remember all the gems you’ve dropped, about how to maintain a successful and healthy marriage, even after 33 years, with the love of your life, our Mum and Queen.”
The actor then wished everyone a Happy Father’s day.
