Fearless, Carefree, Easy-going ,strong-minded -Go-getter. An individual with a great sense of humour and integrity. Was always the star amongst his peers.
Took pride in his appearance and value as an individual.
He lit up every room he walked into with his bubbly, fun-loving and down-to-earth charisma. A good-listener and highly intelligent, always in the know of trivial things and willing to go the extra mile to help family and friends. His easy-going relaxed nature made him a delight to be around.
Loyalty meant a lot to him as He had a small circle of friends with a long-term relationship. At his spare- time he loved playing video games and browsing the internet.
A believer of God and humanity. A devout Footballer with outstanding skills, Dami had always wanted to become a footballer for any European country. I remember when we were much younger we always found him at our neighbour’s house playing football the whole day, comes home covered in mud when he was hungry.
Dami loved Fashion and style, always wanted to have the latest wears. He was a character, always seemed to have a new joke to tell and there was never a dull moment being around him. I respected my brother so much, although he had a carefree attitude, he also had a serious side which shows intolerance to nonsense.
An Immeasurable love for our mother was expressed in his own words earlier this year when he posted on his face-book page a tribute on her 50th birthday.
"I just took a deep breath, thought about how far I have come with the privilege of being your offspring. I grew as an organism inside you for nine months. You carried me and sustained me. Sharing your sustenance with me through your umbilical cord. It is not severed in your heart. From being a toddler to the man have become. You are a blessing, a role model, a teacher, an inspiration. You have undoubtedly influenced my being alive today. I am proud of you because you never gave up hope when the times were hard, you kept going forward through it all, yard by yard. I would have never been here today without your unbounded love. I would ceaselessly eulogies you. I want you to know i would always stand by your side, I would give back and be your guide, even if I have a few dimes, I would never lose my faith in you. My prayers goes thus! May you live to enjoy the fruit of your labour, may you live through another 50 years in good health and wealth. Am so Glad to celebrate with you. Dem go bring your car from germany...lol. I wouldn't let my mum's birthday pass without offering my best wishes for a wonderful golden jubilee. Happy birthday my first love!"
This is a very painful and sudden loss to my family as Dami was the first male child and pillar of the family although he was my younger brother, I had always held him in high esteem.
I will miss my brother more than words can comprehend. Separated as teenagers, I had always longed for our re-union as adults,catching up on lost times.
Heaven has gained an angel that will watch over us. Damilola might not be here in the flesh but he his still alive in our hearts and minds, through Us he lives on.
May the Lord continue to give us the much needed strength, comfort and peace we seek during this difficult time and beyond.
As you sleep in the Cradle of the Lord, I am reassured of God's promises in His Holy word. May your gentle soul continue to rest in eternal peace.
We should all be thankful for knowing him for his time spent on earth. I hope everyone will always remember how wonderfully he touched our lives. May his memory continue to live forever in our hearts.
"I love ❤ you my big brother always and forever"
"Happy birthday to one of the realest brother. Still can't believe you are gone. Continue to rest in peace blood. May God forgive you your sin. Love you forever"
"I will forever love and miss u in my ❤️ 7star General Bebo...akaani Okunrin..
"General Bebo as most of our friends call him, I call him dami because he was not a friend but my beloved brother. Our journey started way back from the days of meiran when we were kids, we've been through so many things together. I remember sometimes last year when I invited dami to my aunty's birthday party I was driving in my car in front and he was driving his car behind me when we got to the party he said dayo while he was driving he remembered when the both of us use to rent bicycle to race as kids and now we are both driving in our own luxurious cars bumper to bumper, he then told me our next goal is to build our house and do the house warming on the same day, when I was called that you are gone the first thing that strucked my head was this short story and I bursted into tears asking God why he took the only brother have got but then I realised he loves you more. Keep sleeping in his glory blood just hurt you left me all alone in this hustle and dreams we've got together. I miss and love you dami"
