|Let the memory of Adedamola be with us forever|
"Still hurts like it was just yesterday. Miss your smile, generosity and compassion. Sweet baby brother, rest on in the loving arms of God."
"Rest on my brother. You are fondly remembered."
"I will always miss you, continue to rest in the Lord.
"My brother from another mother, Dele "Ibiks".... You'd always be fondly remembered. Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord."
"I can only give thanks that our paths crossed, that we shared great memories, I feel so blessed to have known you and that you remained honourable even when in peculiar circumstances. In death you are fondly remembered for all the great jokes, times, 'firsts', thoughts, experiences, moments, pains, lies, escapades, memories and affection shared.
I am happy you sought God in your last moments! Not a day goes by that I do not give thanks to God for bringing clarity to my life's purpose - I do not have tomorrow, I only have today, I will live to bring praise to the Glory of God's Name only and always.
God's comfort will heal our hearts and help us all to forge on, Oladele Adedamola. Sleep on."
"sleep well in Abraham's bosom Ibiks"
"Another birthday without you Bros D. You are always in my heart and you sorely missed my dear cousin. Missed our deep talks, your advice, and everything about you. No one to call me 'baby girl'. Continue to rest in perfect peace."
"Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord! Jah knows best. I'm sad because we use to celebrate this day together birthday-mate. Dele! Rest well!"
"My Uncle D like i fondly call you,miss you everyday and pray God continue to bless your soul. You are surely a RARE GEM."
"Miss you more than words can express.
"Its ur birthday again, thoughts of U have weighed on my mind more lately remembering always hounding U in Abuja. You would listen and never got tired of me pestering U to take me out and all, U were a friend who became a brother, i have Ladi to thank for the pleasure. Miss U much and pray God forgive ur misdeeds and rest ur soul eternally."
"Dele dear, rest on and be at peace eternally."
"Another Birthday today without you
All I can say is we miss you
Oluwa is in control"
"Its your birthday and I will miss you today like everyday since you have been gone. I will miss you as the years come and go, but you will live forever in my heart. Love u buddy."
"Dele, mi birthday mate, friend and brother from another mother. I miss you. It hurts still. Rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus."
"Continue to rest in peace. Love you
"Another year gone by, I remember our last conversation like we had it yesterday. All I have are memories of you and my belief of seeing you in heaven. Rest on my beloved...you are dearly missed."
"l can't believe you are gone, writing this with tears ; oh what a life! You were one true love l never had a moment with, words failed me but to say this- you will forever be missed and you will always be in my heart. It was in my quest for you l got to know you were gone, gone gone far away ! Sleep well beloved and rest in the bossom of GOD."

"Fond memories of you today and always."
"Happy birthday bro"
"you are a friend,brother, my real confidante, l miss you and words can not define the way you are missed sun re oo when we meet again i love to still be your friend you are missed"
"Still sends a shock to system.... your departure Dele is painful. So much can be said but it won't bring you back except more pain my friend, birthday mate, brother from another mother. A year ago I cried like a baby in my quite corner in meditation. I miss our friendship kindred spirit, rest in the bossom of Lord and Savior. Your memories I cherish as your infectious laughter echos loud in my head. #ibiks #Jahbless."
"Rest on rest on uncle dele. Fond memories of you durely lives on"
"Will forever miss u uncle dele. Knew you just for a little while but the memories of those days though short are nothing but pleasant n good ones as you were always fun to chat with. Age nor status was not a criteria to be your friend. You were an epitome of sweetness for lack of a better word. Continue to rest in Gods bossom and may God keep all your legacies n the loved ones you left behind. Our jolly good uncle dele.rest on dear bruv."
"Memories of you are all that I have and they would certainly be a highly priced souvenir. The story of my life can't be complete without mentioning you for you existed in it for 18 years. No week passes by without me thinking of you...sometimes it brings a smile to my face and at other times I cry (like now). Time and time again, I go back to read our last communications via whatsapp and playback in my head our last conversations, and wonder what I could have done/said differently to make you still be with us. God sure understands why he had to take you away sooner...
My prayers are with your family and close friends. I pray that they will be comforted by the Holy Spirit and their hearts be garrisoned with peace. You had great plans for Tyler and I know God will raise people to fulfill those plans in Jesus name.
Sleep on my darling Adedamola till we meet again and never forget that I love you to pieces (I can see you smiling to that)."
"My heart breaks every moment I think of your passing. The only consolation is that in death as in life God is still God. May you soul continue to find rest in the Lord. I love you and miss you. Life is just not the same without you.
Thank you all for the tribute. It is well with our souls.
Your sister - Bukola"
""I can't believe is a year already and the sadness still comes along once in a while, but the joy in the memories is so dear that it gently pushes aside the sadness. Dele was like a brother and a very good friend. I must say I felt I had a special relationship with Dele... but then of course we all felt we had a special relationship with him - and that was one of Dele's extraordinary gifts, giving himself in different ways and creating a unique place for each of us in his life. We grew up together in Gbagada Estate and I remember he had quite a few nicknames we use to call him 'Dele - Omo Iya', 'Dele - Next door'...I see Dele as a fighter, an achiever and always determined to be successful in life. Dele was full of life, very out-going personality and always want his friends to be happy around him. I have never seen someone that respects friendship as much as Dele does. Even though you are gone, you will always be remembered and will surely be missed my dear friend. May your gently soul continue to rest in perfect peace!!!""
"Joining family and friends today as we take time out to remember our dear Dele. I miss you dearly but take comfort in the confidence that you are resting peacefully in the arms of our Almighty God. I celebrate your life today. Miss you and love you dearly."
"I remember this day 365days ago when I husband informed me of your passing. It was shocking and least expected as he told me u were recovering and to think I even saw u the preceding week. God knows best, we only strive. May The Lord continue to give solace to the family. Rest on dear brother."
"Mr. Oga, I will write this straight from the heart. The world is a much poorer place today without you and angels rejoice that one of theirs has returned to them.
When our paths crossed I recognised a kindred spirit straightaway.
Dele personified the 'can do' attitude, his laughter, energy, generousity, optimism ensured there was fun whenever he was around. His personality lifted everyone around him.
The straight tree lasts but a short while in the forest and the sojourn of angels among men is a fleeting moment in time.
The light went out on 1st October 2013 but the warmth of its glow remain forever more.
It was short but it was sweet and to live in the hearts of those you love is to live eternally.
Rest on Dele, forever in the bosom of the Lord."
"Friends kept asking me whether I lost a brother or brother-in-law because of the way I mourned you, I replied them that I lost a brother,my friend, my confidant, my paddy of life.
You lived a good life,you touched lives and am so glad I met you and opportune to marry into your family.
Will forever remember you."
"Its hard for me to even write anything
because i still cant believe it myself
I am not going to ask Y,IF or MAYBE anymore but i know GOD knows best and who are we to question him. In the little time you spent on this earth am happy we are members of the same family
if i was ask to pick a brother again,i would pick you
I promise to always be there for tyler
Rest in the bossom of the LORD"
"With a heavy heart and deep sorrow, I celebrate a life of a fantastic brother. A man that i always see as a person full of life. He's always full of smiles and a great sense of humor. Your passing away is hard for me to take. May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace. You are loved in your life time and will continue to be loved forever. Adieu Oladele Ibikunle !!!"
"It is with great sadness that I today celebrate the life of my best friend who I always considered a brother. Dele’s life was taken away from us too soon exactly a year ago and it is hard to understand why tragic things like this happen to such fantastic people. However, this is a question without an answer and we should not dwell on the loss of our dear friend,father, son and brother. Today let’s celebrate his life and remember all of the remarkable things Dele accomplished and how wonderful his life was.GATHER WITH US IN HIS MEMORY TODAY AT MARRIOT HOTEL BEXLEHEATH 6.30PM"
