Today I celebrate my sister, friend and all round good gal, on her birthday.
Yinka Davies, the Olohun iyo of our climes.
When Eledua created Yinka,
He gave her everything.
Grace, charm, eloquence, intelligence.
But he also gave her a voice reserved for the Cherubims,
The highest choir of God.
That is why anytime Yinka sings,
You feel moved, elevated, transported,
To a realm reserved only for the chosen few.
Happy birthday, the ageless one,
May your voice never crack, your smile never fade, and your humor never diminish.
And, most importantly, may good health and wealth always be your companion.

Happy birthday, my darling sister,
Igba Odun, o din kan.
