He tagged her as his Greatest of All Time (GOAT) and world best.
His post read in part:
"My world best, my G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time)
"My dear mother, If today I present to you a private jet as gift, you deserve much more. I can't just imagine a life without you mum. You so much believe in me, which make me have no choice than to believe in myself too. You opened my eyes to my abilities. You're always proud of me and my wish is to make you proud too.
"If today you are seeing me as a strong man, if today you're seeing me as man that sees beyond his disabilities, if today you're seeing me as hardworking man and a man that don't give up on his dream, the secret behind it is my mum. She trained me well."

Netizen showers encomiums on mum as he celebrates her birthday
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a man had gushed over his mum as he marked her birthday.
Sharing a photo taken with the celebrant on LinkedIn, the man named Emmy recounted several occasions his mother's selflessness and motherly instinct, as well as prayers, had made the difference for him.
He narrated how he was kidnapped a week before his birthday in 2017.
According to Emmy, he stayed in the forest for 3 days and was sustained by her motherly instinct coupled with prayers till he eventually got his freedom. The kidnap incident came after his mother rejected doctors' reports on two occasions confirming him dead.
