Eduard “Landslide” Folayang might be a busy man as he plots his comeback in the ONE Championship Circle, but he’s not about to miss the day for the most important women in his life.
Folayang plans to spend the entire Sunday with his wife, Genevive; his mother, Mercedes; and his siblings, as they plan to celebrate Mother’s Day as one big family.
“I’ve been busy lately because of training and my other commitments, but I’ll make sure that I have time for my family. Mother’s day is another chance to show how important they are to me,” said Folayang.
“I’m planning to celebrate Mother’s Day with a simple dinner with my family and our children,” he added.
“It doesn’t need to be an extravagant celebration. What matters is that we make them feel how important they are to us.”
Folayang could not stress any further how important this day is for him.
He knows that he wouldn’t be here in this position without his mother, and he would not continue to reach new heights without his wife.
It’s also his way of honoring the commandments of God, as he’s known to be a very religious man.
“It’s not easy being a mother, it’s difficult to raise a child well,” said Folayang.
“Giving honor to your mother is one of the Ten Commandments that the Lord has given us. It comes with a promise.”
Folayang also mentioned that this day is extra-special with the addition of his second baby girl to the family.
His wife gave birth to their second child named Yahmazhiach last December 26. Her addition to Folayang’s small but growing family is one of the many things that Folayang is grateful for.
“It’s gonna be more fun because we have Yahmazhiah. I feel really blessed because of my family.”
