- Do good without expecting recognition and accolades will follow you, so they say
- That was the case with nanny Nikolina Nyigo who did her job so passionately that the young man she raised from childhood stopped his wedding to shower her with gratitude and accolades
- This was followed by an emotional moment as members of the audience lined up to gift the good nanny with money and outfits
At a wedding in Tanzania, a groom stood up to give his vote of thanks to those who had made his event successful.
As it turned out, the firstborn in a family with two sons had an important guest in the audience; the family's long-serving nanny, Nikolina Nyigo.
He explained that as much as their parents nurtured the two boys into the men they are, the nanny's role cannot go unnoticed.

Raised by the Nanny
According to him, 80% of who they grew into can be attributed to Nyigo because she stepped into the role of parenting them when their biological parents were held up with work.
"I was only two years old when she was employed by my parents to take care of us. She took care of with so much passion that she essentially became our second mom."
The emotional groom added that Nyigo would go on to stay with the family for so many years that she only went away after he had completed high school.
Gifts for the Nanny
It, therefore, touched a deep part of his heart when he heard that she had attended the wedding and figured he needed to do something as a form of thanksgiving.
"I cannot fully pay her for all that she did for us, but I have friends whom I'm requesting to support me gift this lady who sacrificed a big part of her life for us," he continued.
