Writer Nana-Kofi Kufuor places his mum Ama Kufuor and sister Mammy Maguire at the heart of this piece; two women who shaped him and sacrificed for him. This letter is an ode to all the women who have taken time out of their lives to help him become the man he is today. The trials and tribulations he saw growing up and the lessons they taught him and others around him.
