She shared the news along with photos of her boy with his new ride on her social media recently.

“It was about 2 years ago that I made a promise to my first child son. I promised him that when he turns 13 years old, I'll start teaching him how to drive a car. Today he turns 13 years old. I then realised that he can't learn by driving my big auto car and that he needed a manual car to learn.

I would like and wish him well on his life. Keep it up Mom, I'm proud of you.”
