As the CEO of The Honey Girl Kitchen, Amanda Agba fondly called Mandy celebrates her birthday anniversary today September 30, her best friend, the CEO of Sharkhouse101 could not contain her excitement, as she showered encomiums on her with prayers for more celebrations.

Oruitemeka’s decision to eulogise her best pal is unconnected to the fact that a friend like Agba does not come by easily.

Agba, that Honey Girl, is best described as loyal, sincere, resilience, selfless and transparent as a friend and business partner. These were some of the alluring words of Oruitemeka, who wished Mandy many happy returns.

“For me, nothing else matters than September 30. Agba is a friend you have and cannot afford to lose. Our friendship has stood the test of time about 10 years down the lane. Not once have we parted ways,” the Shark boss enthused.

“I deem it a great honour to celebrate her life today. Her birthday is a great opportunity for me to tell the world how refined and beautiful she is inside out. She has been a blessing to me all these years. Not everyone is this lucky to find a friend like Mandy, as I call her,” she chuckled.

As friends, Oruitemeka and Agba, did not only flock together, they also hit the road from Port-Harcourt to Abuja then to Lagos hand in hand and strove to thread the paths of entrepreneurship.

Interestingly, while Oruitemeka ventured into cooked and fresh seafood four years ago in Lekki, Agba delved into everything food two years after. With this, there is no gainsaying then that they are not just best friends but also great cooks in their various kitchens.

Just in her early 30s, Agba’s kitchen – The Honey Girl Kitchen – is standing ahead of the pack. It has joined the bandwagon of kitchens rated as the cream of the crop, and the choice of every food enthusiast in Lagos and Nigeria.

Undoubtedly, Agba’s culinary results are arguably inviting mere looking at them on her Instagram and Facebook pages. She is not just a cook but certified in the art of culinary.

Indeed, Agba’s kitchen is notable for cuisines like special rice, pasta, homemade agonyi beans, soups from all ethnic groups to carry everyone along.

Today, September 30 is not just about the eating and drinking, it’s all about Agba, that Honey Girl, as she gets the best wishes. “I pray the good Lord bless and increase her. May He grant her all her heart’s desires. She deserves it.”
