It is not often we see one high-profile celebrity female praise another with a day post that is not in any way captioned ‘happy birthday’ with a follow-up of nice words marking the occasion.
Today, scrolling through the bulk of celebrity Instagram post splashes a Shirley Frimpong-Manso update that captures Anita Erskine with a showering words of respect and admiration for the caption. Painted in their respective careers as moguls of our generation, Shirley gave a reminder to all women that it doesn’t take one’s crown off when women celebrate each other outside official occasions.
“I have worked with very few people who exhibit the kind of decorum, discipline and hard work @theanitaerskine brings to her work. It’s amazing to watch! I get inspired every day I work with her. Who inspires you? #inspiration,” wrote Shirley.
Flattered by the kind words put together by her colleague A-lister, Anita responded beneath the comments’ slot in a way that speaks volume of a forever bond between both, “Oh Miss Shirley! Why are you making me so shy today!? I am grateful for what you continue to teach me!!! YOU inspire me!!!”
We might be oblivious of the cause of action from Shirley, but we are all up for it especially at a time like this where COVID-19 is causing more harm than good to the world.
