What did Oswald Ghana Say after going viral.

The 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 was his 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”.

“Mrs Appiah is Oswald’s favourite teacher; I have to give thumbs up to her because she’s really helped him to settle in school,” she said.

In what seems to be a passionate appeal to his mother in fulfillment of a commitment to pass his examinations, nine-year-old Oswald asked that she keeps her end of the bargain by providing his needs on Friday, beginning with a “big Coke for Mrs Appiah.”

‘Things to bring on Our Day’ was the title of the list written in pencil and dated July 29.

Asked by host Kojo Yankson who Mrs Appiah is and why she was getting a coke, Oswald’s mum explained that Mrs Appiah mentored her son.

On why Oswald had to remind her with a list, she explained that her son had adopted that mode since she had a habit of telling him that she had forgotten when he made certain requests.

“Oswald is very specific when he wants things, and also, I have a habit of telling him ‘I have forgotten’ anytime he asks for certain things.

“I kept doing that for some time, and now anytime he wants something, he would write it. So when I come back to tell him that I have forgotten, then he pulls the paper up that ‘Mummy he wrote it,” she said.
