This is what sons do! They take care of their mamas! When mama needs something...no questions asked. That's what happened when this man's momz became ill and needed a little TLC? He stepped up like black kings do! 

Ralph Udeaja, 27, posted a video on social media of him unraveling his mother's braids, while the two sway and sing along to Chris Brown's, "Pills and Automobiles." The moment went viral.  Check it out:

Viewers loved the moment, with some commenting "Take good care of the queen" and "I love you for this brother."

Ralph's mom, Gloria Ofoha, 57, suffers from depression and bipolar disorder and was recently hospitalized. Heartbreaking, but when Udeaja went to pick his mom up after she was discharged from the hospital, she wandered off--and went missing. He quickly turned to social media to help locate his mother and that initial post not only went viral, but led him to locating his mom and the pair reuniting.

“When I found her I could tell she had been homeless since she left the hospital. She hadn’t taken a bath and her  hair was very rough and tangled,” Udeaja says. “I had to bathe her because she was too weak to bathe herself, and then I had to make sure that I washed her  hair well. The video I posted was to let everyone know that I have found her, and that she was in good hands now. I didn’t realize that it would get so much attention — everybody seemed to love it.”

In an unfortunate turn of events, Udeaja was injured just a few days later, but posted to instagram to express his gratitude for just having a loving mother to now turn and take care of him in his time of need.

This is just a beautiful display of love and strength in tough times, y'all. Despite his injury, Ralph still continued to not only take care of his mom's hair, but y'all he kept her EDGES LAID! #Salute

Udeaja told Yahoo Lifestyle that he is forever devoted to his mom. “There needs to be constant love and appreciation to get her out of her depressive state,” he says. “She is always very happy when I show her love and I show her that I care about her.”
