Mrs Appiah and Oswald

A nine-year-old boy who has become a social media sensation through an ‘Our Day’ wish list to his mother, says he is overwhelmed with the outpouring of love in support of his ‘Our Day’ quest.

According to Oswald Gennuh , “It will be the best Our Day”.

His excitement comes at the back of making a passionate appeal to his mother to fulfil some requests for the commemoration of the end of the academic term, which is termed as, ‘Our Day’ in Ghana.

He said that it didn’t occur to him that the letter would go viral.

Sharing his excitement on Joy News Friday, he said watching cartoons was the source of inspiration for deciding to relay his request through a letter.

“When I watch cartoons, I see that people write letters well. I wanted to write the letter to see whether it would work.”

He said the reason why he detailed his requests in the letter was because he wanted to ensure that his mother did not forget to buy the items,

With regards to requesting a smaller size of either the Fanta and Sprite drinks, he said, “If I buy the big one (1-litre size) and I cannot finish it, I’ll feel bad. Because I’ll feel like I’ve wasted money”.
