"Febi Adeyemi :FAREWELL TO MY NEPHEW ADEJIRE OLUSEGUN AS YOU RETURN TO DUST TOMORROW AT ST.PETER'S CHURCH/CEMETERY.
Adejire,why do you have to die now?
Why do the angels have to come for you at 36years of age with a heart broken wife and your son?
Why do you have to leave a heart broken mum who laboured all her life to bring you this far?
Why do you have to leave a devastating family who raced ,ran and prayed to encourage you to stay on?
Why do you have to make all of us cry because you the rugged Adejire,Mr Fix it suddenly made the quickest exit
Adejire,surely you will be missed,your unique place as the no 1 in the third generation of the Adepoju's thrust a lot of responsibility on you!
If tears could bring back to life,surely our tears should have,
The angels came in ,and surely you became their gain and our loss
A testimony of your jolly nature was the huge ground at the candle light procession
Your death drained us of our strength,old and young,male or female
As you return to dust tomorrow,we give God all the glory,
He gave us the privilege of nursing you,while you lived,you were strong and able,
You died ,not violently ,not by the sword,not by fire,not in the deep of the ocean etc
We promise to groom,cherish and love lyimide
Take care and love your love,the only girl we ever knew with you,Tosin Olusegun
I looked up to the sky and l see you claded in white robe tied to the angels wings looking down and smiling saying "don't cry my loved ones,for lam going home to my maker".Weep not for me,for l simply finished my race. Every time we look up into the sky,it would be a reminder that you have joined the saints too.
Adejire,good bye for ever from all of us."

"Jah Rule 28/01/16 written by Diranblaq Adelayi

HE WAS BLOOD!!!
Egbon
Adejire Olusegun was blood!!!
He was a street icon too...

He was a legend whose exploits we, the upcoming ones could never fully correlate with his charming, boisterous, lively, friendly demeanour, a legend who never for once discriminated between young and old, rich or poor, he was outspoken too...
He lived in an era where good manners and good diction was the norm, his lingua was impeccable!
Anytime you were with him, you'd always leave with that feeling of having rubbed minds with an icon.

So was he,
Quite outspoken too, but greatly respected in the hood where we all grew up as family before the streets moulded us.....
but one thing Egbon never let go of was the concept of loyalty.
He was of the generation that placed a high esteem on loyalty, not cheap word of mouth that the boiz throw around these days...
Himself and Teejay are one of a kind...
His conscience was priceless, he'd speak his mind regardless whose ox is gored.

Adeola,
I, perhaps should have delivered this in person considering the closeness between us but like they say,
You can never see a man cry till you see a man die.
Egbon has fallen, like an oak at the mercy of the lumberjack...
Not one soul can claim to know your agony right now, even for those of us who have stared death in the face and lost some, won some.
Not one soul can envisage the chasm left behind by his demise.
But one thing gives me joy,
Lucas...

I consider you one of my low maintenance friends whom despite not seeing often still remain family.

But the pain of this loss is too acute to bear
In my mind's eye,
I refuse to visualise mum, behind her thick lenses right now.
What words could soothe her???
Tobi?
His mentor, his backup?
I don't have the right words really but I had to drop this when the dust must have settled.

I urge you to breathe...
Inhale
Exhale
Repeat...
Console yourself with the fact that
HE WAS A LEGEND TO MANY
HE WAS A STREET ICON
HE WAS BLOOD"

"Adeoba Temitope :My eyes filled up with tears as I heard the news
It never occurred to me, how much I could lose
I find myself wishing that it wasn't real
Every time I think about it, pain is all I can feel
Tears fall from my eyes, I can barely see
But my heart tells me that he'll always be with me
I'm glad he feels no pain now-he lives in a perfect land
I can still feel the soft touch on my shoulder of his
loving hand
I lie in bed and cry at night
And I don't feel any better in the morning light
And I will love and miss him forever
Until the day we are again together.
Together in that perfect place above,
Filled with caring, sharing and love
But until that day comes- I will wipe my tears away.
And hopefully see him again someday. Rest in peace Adejire"

"Adeola Olusegun :My brother Adejire Olusegun I am still in shock, just like am dreaming. We were very close, you protected me soo much during our university days, every one knew not to mess with Jahrule's sister. I have known you all my life, very caring and loving. With your plenty drama when you want to get things from us(mum and my siblings), you always know how to get to us. You fought hard and well. Mummy laboured so much on you above us all, but in all, I give thanks to you Lord.
Adejire, known and loved by all, popularly known as Jahrule, very peace loving, easy going, respectful. The only abusive word he knows is 'olobe ni e' .......Baba Lucas , baba Iyimide..... I will always and forever love and miss you."

"Adeola Olusegun: I was there when you left this world, I prayed while the doctors tried to bring you back, I watched alone with so much fear, hope, anxiety, amidst my tears. The picture of your lifeless body still fresh in my head. You told me on Tuesday that you will be going home on Thursday, on Wednesday, you told me that you had something to do the next day and that you have to leave, Thursday morning before you left, you emphatically told me you were going home that day, I didn't understand papa J......You had never been ill, never have you been admitted in the hospital all through my years of knowing you, so strong...oh my God.....I take solace in you"

"Tribute by Oyinda Adepoju         Dearest cousin,
the only memory I have of you is you somersaulting several years ago back in Ile-Oluji. I also remember congratulating you via Facebook sometimes in 2014 after you got married. I surely thought I'd one day come to see you, your wife, and your beautiful son. Like everybody else, I didn't know that was never to be, that the few memories I had of you would be all I would ever have ...Say hi to Grandpa and Grandma for me, and sleep tight
Love, Oyinda"

"Tibute by Oni Afolabi                     My heartfelt sympathy goes to the Oluseguns for the demise of Egbon Jire.
Waking up on sunday morning to see this sad news on facebook was something I found hard to believe until I went through his
facebook wall.
I know a lot of things will be going through the mind of "Mummy Olusegun" right now.
Growing up in Ondo town was made easier by this amiable family.
In 2011 when "The Onis" suffered their own calamity when we suddenly lost Oni Ajibola, this family stood by us through their
prayers, calls and text messages despite the distance.
How I would have loved to tell them that coping with such calamity would be easier and the wound healing soon.
The truth is that the pain can never go away and the wound might heal, but the scar will still be there for everybody to see.
All I can say is that "May God guide Bro. Adejire Olusegun on the journey to his final destination."
To those loved ones left behind, may God continue to console you and give you reasons to be happy.
Olusegun Oluwatobi Olusegun Adenike Olusegun Olubunmi Adeola"

"Tribute by Wale Olojo                                  Rest in the Lord my dear brother,friend,confidant. Even though you are my younger brother you are full of great thought. When I was in trouble I always seek your advice. And we talked through problems to find best solution. The Last advice you gave me on my marriage was. "Bros ęmaję kan gęti yin ooo. Ti obinrin baa binu won le daaa waaraa nuu.Sugbon wón o le fun waara. Broda Dewale efaa iyawo yin moora". Your thoughts over everyone of our father's children's has always been good. I remembered the first time i met you,i was in a very dark place in my life, we met in an absurd way yet you took me like you have known me for years. The next day you took me to Ife garage and proudly introduced me to almost everyone that was around that this is my brother. What can i say ,we share great memories together in Akure, Lagos,and at Ado ekiti. You are always joking and creating stories to amuse people around you. I always laugh whenever you call one of my sister Eleyele or Olobe, You advocate for our father and other members of our family without even putting yourself first. As you returned to dust today, you will always be remembered by all of US. Sunre ooooo omo okeruyę kimiya funna okedotaa. Adejire The Son of Olusegun
ADIEU my brother."

"Tribute by Kehinde Akinbobola                          Adejire Olusegun my dear friend,even in death,you've set a very high standard for those of us still alive.You made it clear to us that the distance between life's first cry to final breath is short but the legacy left Thereafter is endless. Never ever have I used someone's picture in my dp for RIP,but this will be the first time I'll be loosing a very close and dear friend of mine.Ever since the news of your demise broke out,I knew everyday would never remain the same again for the friends and family you left behind.Words alone can't express who,what and how much you mean to me. Proverbs18:24b was Talking about You
when he said "...and There's a friend that sticks closer than a
brother".I remember sometime in 1996(about 20 years
ago!)when we just started 'blooding' together,I said something
to you that you are one of the few people alive that can watch
my back and I'll go to sleep with my two eyes...20 years on
the story still remains.Jire is more than a friend,he 'IS' a
brother,he's not not dead but alive in the heart of my heart.Its unfortunate that we got to know the height of your love ,the depth of your loyalty,the width of your influence and the magnitude of your ruggedness in death.continue to rest in the bosom of our LORD JESUS CHRIST."

"The beat faded and suddenly the music stopped. A mighty Oak in the forest came crashing, the majestic elephant that bestrode the jungle fell and could not rise again. The news of your demise was no doubt devastating and shocking, words failed me. Exactly 4 months prior to your exit, I sent you messages checking up on you and your family, enquiring about your Auto work, I admonish you to keep giving it all it takes and concluded that you will succeed and come to rival the likes of ELIZADE. In your usual positive manner, you said “I believe you all the way” and also asked how I was doing. Those lofty dreams have been truncated by death callously.
You were a true brother and friend, compassionate, loving and trustworthy. I remember about a decade ago when I needed to make some contacts. I mentioned it to your hearing and the next thing you said was, “let’s go and meet Kabiyesi, he will be able to help you”, I asked “who?” and you replied “Kabiyesi Jegun, he’s my Uncle, I will take you to the Palace to see him”. Off we went the next day, making a first visit to your Granny to invade her pot of soup, we landed in the Palace and true to your words the amiable and Majestic Jegun (Oba Adedugbe) of blessed memory came out, vividly, I recall, it was just the 3 of us, Kabiyesi was intermittently hailing you while he brought out his official letter-headed papers, wrote a note to the individual I need to see and attached his Cards to it. Thereafter we spent more hours gisting with Kabiyesi as I later discovered he was a close friend to my town’s Oba. You never hesitate to lend a helping hand.
Jirexy, as I fondly call you, you memories will be evergreen. May the good Lord uphold and strengthen the folks you left behind, may he soothe the pains of your exit with the Balm of Gilead. Fare thee well a beloved friend, Rest well in the bosom of thy maker where there is no pain…..Peace Profound!!"

Your picture is now being used as RIP? At times, it feels I can't take it, at times I feel like shutting people out, attimes I feel so helpless..... Adejire, Ajisco bobo, ikanlaaborijagbadu,osunalemorijagba, Jahbaby,Jahrule, papaJ, jARESE,I miss you beyond words. Even when help was not coming, you moved on, you never allowed it to get you down, After all the struggle, you still left me
This is so much to bear"

When I heard, I tried to go back to bed so I'd wake up and find out it was just a nightmare.. but life is not like that, we do not have the power to choose the things that happen to us and those we love. The death of a loved one makes you realize that you are not immortal.. It makes you reassess your own life, and the things you consider important..
This is for the Adepojus, the Oluseguns ,the Adeobas the Adeyemis and the Akinrinsolas.. I love each and everyone one of you.. I will call from time to time to say hello, and even when I am mad at you, I will forgive you with all my heart. You are my family, and even though we are in different parts of the world, you will continue to mean a lot to me..

Uncle Jire, continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord, may the Almighty God comfort your household, and those of us you have left behind"
