Shipped Back To Nigeria
"Shipped back" is term used when parents decide to send their children back to their native countries for schooling, sometimes under the guise of a holiday. Some of those children (now adults) question their mothers' decisions to send them to Nigeria. (Is it just me or was Abi livid? her Mother's shakara was too much).

Anyway me, I'm only watching it for reference (tee hee).
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
