"Baki! my brother, my friend, this loss has been really hard to take. You were so full of life; I still can’t believe that you are gone. Who will I call in the middle of the night to go chill and will be ready to go at any time; who will I call if I need something and will be ready to assist? Who is going to crack dry jokes and make me laugh when I am down? We had so many plans for the future, and now you are gone. This loss is unbearable and the pain I feel is unending. I haven’t been able to sleep as the memories of the good times we had keep replaying in my mind; you will never be forgotten. I hope your son Zaheer grows up to be the kind, caring, friendly and fun person that you were. You were very generous to me and all our mutual friends and I thank you for everything you ever did for me. If I didn’t tell you this enough, know that I appreciated all of it. Rest assured, if Zaheer ever needs anything, I’ll be there for him the same way you have been for me. Rest in peace my brother, my friend!"

"Abdul Baki Adamu Iddrisu my very troublesome but caring friend.  My heart ached for days, I couldn't speak without crying, I couldn't close my eyes without thoughts of you, I couldn't look at my phone without hoping to see you typing a message to me or calling me.  Many fond memories you have left me with.  We had many fights but we had many more happy moments.  Baki aka D Black as we called each other, I will forever hold on to the friendship we shared even though it was short.  Tuesday 11th November 2014, the first day we met in person.  Monday 29th August 2016, the last time I saw you in person.  The pain you left me with I won't wish for anyone.  Talking about you doesn't make it any easier.  Just know that I treasured our friendship. I loved how much you thought the world of me in your own way.  You were so protective of me and wouldn't hide it even when you wanted to act all hard! LOL.  Baki, your parting from me has reminded me of our true purpose.  RIP my darling.....My Hausa friend LOL (I hear you laughing at that).  Your big head LOL.  I miss your big head and wide smile.  Its amazing how admist the tears, you still manage to make me laugh.  My friend, better be a Scrabble master in heaven.  Show them who is boss!"

"Abdul Baki...ma heart was broken since I heard of your passing. Thoughts of you and your death haven't left my mind...I keep remembering bits and pieces from ST Johns. Different classes but who can forget 2 days apart on our birthdays. Its so difficult when a young person dies...but more painful when a wife and kids are left behind, you left behind a son and wife and share in their grief, loosin a husband, friend and father. But the God we serve knows best and He says in all things give thanks to him, good and bad. I thank God for your life...you lived 29 beautiful years, the latter part being the best being a husband and father. So if you ask me you spent more years and that too gracefully, you were smart, intelligent, humble, gentle and kind and true definition of who a Muslim should be, its in the blood of the family you were born into "Adamu Iddrisus", and you blessed wherever you are. RIPP and may your soul soar high, and bring comfort and strength to your wife and son. We love you always and indeed you would be missed forever and a day more.  MAY THIS CANDLE BURN OUT LONG ENOUGH."

"Hello Jay,
I can't still believe what Albert told me that fateful morning. So last Saturday morning I went to the field where we all played football(Southwood road park). I didn't see you playing, neither did I see you talking about your customised boots or the latest skills  you'd learnt.
Bernard asked if I'd heard the news!

I then drove to the cabbie rank at abbey wood station, you remember the Ghanaian driver, he wasn't there but I was told he's changed his car. I can imagine how he would want you to ride in his new car when you come to London. I saw the barber shop on Wilton Rd where you always trimmed your hair. As usual there were many young in there. I reckon  your barber can't wait to trim your hair.

Then I drove  to Laymarsh close. I didn't see your Mini Cooper. Neither did I even enter your one- bed open plan flat. For me I didn't think you'd even moved to Ghana.

"Jay Baker" your American name you said lol
It's actually been a while I went to Nando's. You remember the last time we went to the one on Powis street all on your bill?

Do you remember when Asem came to London and you brought him to our flat?

I'm here thinking about how you'll try and put on some fake south London accent when you wanted to have a laugh. Hello jay! Have you learnt to pronounce "Bluetooth" properly?

Are you going to come to London enroute The Nederland? I bet my self, Kojo would have met you, Albert and the twins and meet your young one when you next arrive in the Nederland. Yes we never spoke of it but it was going to happen.

I miss the general knowledge ask and answer  we would do. I was always impressed with how wide you were read.

Do you remember when you brought your South African mate to our flat introducing him as "Dutch" and after hearing him, I said he was coloured South African and shouted to him "Ma Bra! Which he responded "my Bra!!"
You giggled and said "this guy, you know everything" I was waiting for the next time we meet, ask a question for you to win on that occasion.

Baki!! Finally, I still got your adidas football shorts Albert had at the time and gave me when I didn't have one to go play football. I've worn it a million times since then. But now I don't know whether to wear it, keep it or just hide it somewhere.

You lived!! You enjoyed every bit of your days!!
Rest in Peace
Allah grant you Jannah"

"My dear friend,

I still can not get past the news that you are gone. I sit and think back and all I can do is smile and cry at the same time. You had a good heart Baki. One that always there for a friend and I will never forget the numerous advices you gave me. The conversations we  had about my daughter and your Son Zaheer, how we would make sure they get married, lol. You would always send me videos of Zaheer and Shaireen and we would laugh about how our children are growing up so fast.

What breaks my heart even more was one of  our last conversation, when you were telling me how much you missed your wife and son, and you looked forward to seeing them soon.

WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO BAKI??? WHY?

All I have left are videos, pictures and voice notes of you and memories of what a good friend you were to me.

REST IN PEACE MY DEAR FRIEND.

FOREVER IN OUR HEART, NEVER WILL WE FORGET YOU BAKI."

"Dear Shaireen and all readers,
I just wanna share some few words. Abdul Baki Adamu Idrissu was and still is an amazing being, he is someone i have known all my life. Not a single memory of him do i have where is is not smilling... i have not known anyone who smiles so much as Baki, he was humble, gentle and very caring.
Indeed his death was an aweful tragedy, one that non of us saw coming. But the amazing thing is as much as we Love Baki his maker (Allah) loves him even more.
Dear Mrs Baki, please be patient and know that you're not alone. May God bless you and your little boy. 'Your husband is not dead, hes just not among the living but his good workis with us and his blissful smiley facr too'

"Allah (swt) says in Surat Ali 'Imran [verse 185]: Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.

Was sad to hear of your death, and I mourned you, bUT Allah knows best.

Farewell, Abdul Baki. You’ll be sorely missed!"

"Only pictures, video's, voice notes, messages and memories left! I'm empty my dear. Why did Allah take you from me? Why did he put us in so much pain? Why didn't He allow you to spend more time with us so Zaheer would also know you well. I can hear your laugh in my head, I keep on hearing you say your "don't worry". But I still can't believe this has really happened. We will meet again I'm sure! I love you my Abdul Baki Adamu. WE love love love you!"

This tribute was added by Shaireen Abdoulrahamani on 6th September 2016

"Nice to everyone around you and always forgetting about yourself! That's who you are Abdul Baki Adamu. And "Don't worry" was your favorite thing to tell me, because you used to tell me I worry myself too much. I can't believe that my lifepartner has left me behind with our beautiful son. My husband, my friend and my lover. I know we have been through hard times, and I know we have struggled with each other. But that all seems so unimportant now! But we had great times together as well! I always think of the first time we met. A very well mannered and well educated young man. You were standing at Eindhoven Airport with a newspaper and you were wearing a white shirt, which gave me a very good first impression! That's where our journey began. We went through a lot of cultural differences but we always chose for each other! Because we just couldn't and wouldn't want to live without each other. Then we got married and welcomed our beautiful son into this world. Unfortunately we never got the chance to live a real family life together. Everything we stood for and every appointment we made that made us live apart from each look so stupid now. I would put everything down to just see you, hug you and talk to you for one more time! There's a lot I want to say to you and there's a lot that I have already said, but which I would like to repeat for you to hear! But it will all be in my prayers. I will do everything in my power to let our son grow to that respectable and well educated man that I saw at Eindhoven Airport that very first day. I will be strong and tell him all good about his daddy!
We were supposed to grow old, fat and ugly together.. But now I will have to do that on my own. I don't want to believe this! You have left me behind. This kind of heartache is indescribable. Allah wanted you to be close to your father, which you always liked. And now you can also joke with my grandfather and speak your Hausa haha!
There's a lot more that I would like to speak out, but I have lost my words for now.
Rest In Peace my husband and Zaheer's daddy! You'll live on through us and we will celebrate you life! Forever in our hearts and forever in our memories! We love you Abdul Baki Adamu! :'( :( 2 September 2016 is de blackest day of my life!"
