"Merry Christmas Segun. Can't believe it's been almost 3 years. I am so sorry I haven't left you a note. It's my bad, I know :-(
I just remember meeting you in lesson over a summer in Lagos and we clicked instantly. We were such good friends and sat next to each other everyday. You also looked out for me. I think we had a crush on each other lol. You were such a nice and great guy. You had a positive attitude and outlook towards life.
Lesson was over and we lost touch, then years later reconnected on facebook. You were in Dubai and it was so much fun catching up on years of lost friendship. Enjoyed all our gist on the phone...lol
I remember waking up to the devastating news on bbm and I had to ask what the hell happened to you? So sorry we didn't get to see again as anticipated.
Miss you much Segun and I continue to pray for your soul and loved ones.
Keep Smiling and Resting In Power My Dear Friend. <3"
"Happy Birthday Ore... Still greatly missed... Continue to sleep in the Lord...
"Rest on in the Lord. Still missed greatly."
"My Dear friend Sege Baba, miss you so so much, times we spent together, friday nights, coded jists, coded movenments...lol,haba stil cant believe you are gone but am happy you knew God and you are in a much better place without pains.

Sleep on in the Lord Segun..."
"Your memory lives on Segzy...Keep resting in the bosom of the Lord."
"Another birthday has come and once more you are not here with us Segun... What more can we say? What more can we do? We seem to have said and done it all but the truth remains so stark and bleak; we will always miss you!
HBD Segun... Sleep on in the arms of the Lord Ore...

"Happy Birthday Seglar...I know u r rocking to the sounds of trumpets and harps...till we meet again bruv. Still doesn't seem real, I glance at ur office building hoping to see taking a walk to goodies..."

It's one year today...we were never really friends but we had a close friend in common- Wale...We had stuff in common and though we just said 'hello' from a distance, i always checked on you...I was always happy to know you were doing well...You were calm, amiable and intelligent, a good friend from what i heard, a lot of people miss you...continue to rest in God's bossom!"
"This is still a very bitter pill to swallow......rest on Segun...."

I haven't written anything all this while,because I'm still in denial that you are gone and I won't see you anymore...but I know God understands and knows why.
You were one of a kind, unforgettable and I'm soo glad and soo grateful to God that our paths crossed.
I remember you most especially today, I know how much you loved birthdays...I remember the birthday wish lists you would make and then ask me to pick an item or two....I'll miss doing that....
I miss you loads Segs. Continue to rest in perfect peace,till we meet again.
Molly Polly Pudding & Pie❤️"
"@ Omojero, your post just brought back the tears that I thought had dried up finally... Segun would've been looking forward to tomorrow - all the calls, wishes, fun, jokes and pranks that come along with birthdays... Still hard to believe but I believe you are gonna have the best birthday ever Segun... Keep sleeping peacefully in the Lord; Segun sun re oo..."
"Its about two months since you left segun, just got a reminded this morning on my phone that its your birthday tomorrow. just brought back memories of you my dear friend. keep resting in the bossom of the Lord.."
"RIP Dear one"
"Wow, Segun. I remember you well, well. All those days of our families growing up together. You were a baby bro to me. It breaks my heart to hear this. Why now? Why you? Our condolences to Mommy, Dupe, Jide, Femi and all directly affected by this. Sun re."
Even though it has been over a decade since I last saw you. I cant explain the hurt I feel right now. You have always been a person I could look up to. You are Blessed IJN, may GOD grant you peace in Heaven. I love you bro always. Condolences to the ADEBO family may GOD grant you all strength IJN."
"Man, i met you through Bayo when we were in Lag and i knew you you were always a good guy. though we met again sporadically over the years you were always the same kind and friendly guy that i remember the first time we met. I am priviledge to count you as one of my friends. You've left a great legacy for your friends and family and all who have come in contact with you. Till we all meet again someday . Rest in Peace Adebo."
"Rest in peace....My brother and my dear friend........"
"My Dear Friend and Brother,
Your death came to me as a great loss.U were such a "RARE GEM",one in a ZILLION full of life and a very good heart to accomodate anyone that comes your way.
You taught me,so many things that has really helped me grow, added value to my life and also a true CONFIDANT.
I,m happy to have had you as a part of my life.
Rest in the blossom of the ALMIGHTY GOD my Darling Oluwasegun."
"With a heavy heart, I recall our last meeting @ Deji and Lani's wedding. WOW! Reading the preceeding tributes my heart goes out to all who knew and were touched by you. I take solace only in the fact that we shall yet see again. Sleep on brother..."
Was terribly saddened to hear this. As Kayode Jegede said, you were such a nice guy always, primary school and beyond. Not sure anyone could have anything negative to say about you.
Rest in peace my brother. May God console and strengthen your family.
"I remember always bumping into you all the time and you were always smiling, always friendly, gentle and kind. My prayer is that God comforts your entire family and friends. May your gentle soul rest in peace."
In a particular moment as I sat through your memorial service, I felt a weird sense of deja vu, like I'd seen that moment in a dream. But never in the dream had I connected that moment to you. It's like God was trying to prepare me but I was so ill prepared.
You were truly a special person. In the seven years I'd known you, you'd always been your warm, gentle and sincere self. You cared so much about people, and you still cared for many years, even long after we'd broken up. You really helped in easing our relationship into a lasting friendship for which I’ll always be grateful.
I'm still in awe at how you'd call me randomly to ask if I was home because you wanted to come round and say 'What's up? Any gist for me?'. You were always so easy to talk to. I remember your last visit sometime last year. We spoke about life, work, your wish to get married and start a family (I know how much that meant to you) how you were trying to hook people up with jobs, your plans for a new car... I was so proud of you. We joked about how rosy your cheeks were getting and your growing belly -sign of good living :-)
I remember how we'd hung out at a wedding a couple years ago and you'd made me promise to check in with you at least once a quarter to let you know how I was doing because I was so bad at keeping in touch. I tried.
There are so many memories I have of you that make me smile. It hurts too much to think of you as gone so I choose to think of you as relocated. I'm happy to have had you as a part of my life but I know God had a better plan which is why he called you. I’ll miss you Segun, see you in paradise."
"Segun you were one of a kind. You always had that your smile, and even all through school I never saw you upset. You were always just so cool.....a perfect gentleman. You were a true friend to my brother and to so many others. I thank God for your life and I pray The good Lord will uphold your family. You will forever be missed. Rest on Segun."
"I never got a chance to meet you but we became cool friends....you were patient with me. I was always too busy to return your calls or skype with u even when u waited up ...depriving yourself of your sleep.
My last memory of you was both of us rapping on a video call to JayZ Tom Ford.
Then you told me you were ill but I never got around to call you cos I was too busy *same stupid excuse*
I waited to hear from you,sent messages but little did I know you were gone.....gone forever!
I can't hold back the tears now. All I have is your voicemails. You were kindhearted,hardworking and very easy to talk to.
I miss you my friend that I never met...Segun Adebo continue to rest in Peace.
May God grant your loved ones the fortitude to bear this great loss."
"A brother and a friend "Segun", really short of words but I am sure that God knows the best and I am missing you since you left. As I type these words, I just remember our last conversation on your way to the airport to SA and discussion on your visit to Dubai, in your words "Charlo-pumping I will see you soon in Dubai" Rest in peace!"
"My brother, I was speaking about you in the office yesterday and started crying. I will replay what everyone has said about you and that is you were truly a great friend.....much better than most of us deserve. I pray God comforts your family during this very difficult time. Sleep well Segllla"
"Segun...my brother....so much to say and I only wish it had all been said before you departed...still remember our conversation on the phone shortly before you went to SA....still remember all the fun we had together at Roti's wedding....
You an amazing friend and I thank God for you....you will forever remain in my heart...
May the Lord bless and comfort your family....
You will never be forgotten....
Sun Re my broda...."
I really can't forget your warm smile. Remembering my PDS days back in LASU (2002), I still saw u this year at the movies. Can't believe u gone but the Lord knows best. Who are we to question him, he knows best and does the best at all times. I pray the lord grant your family and friends the heart to bear the irreplaceable loss. 'Rest on Seglar'"
"May your loved ones be comforted. Rest in Peace."
"- You were one of a kind...you still are
- You were deliberate and never compromised your opinion
- Soft-spoken and easy going
- Painstakingly helpful to those in need (the last time we spoke, we did for hours as i asked boring questions about intent for graduate studies...I have become that which you advised, thank you)
Like me you possessed a sarcasm the average person wdnt,. I remember you joking with Uncle Folly,sometime in 1994 when you told him something i cannot say here. I laugh about it till this day.
- A ChelseaFC fan: You wore the badge proudly and stuck to the dream in our good times and shortcomings. Because heaven is the place every earthly affair is preceded, i have no doubt you'll stand by the team
- And finally, on family frontiers, say hello and thank you to My Parents, your Dad, Aunt Bola and a host of heavenly bodies who were once part of our earthly family.
Goodbye cuz'...Rest in the arms of Jesus"
"Segun Adebo, i still cannot believe that you are gone forever... I remember meeting you for the first time at Lasu Epe campus, u were such a gentleman, kind, funny and witty... Its so painful that i will no longer run into you on my way home from work anymore, u would always start a chat with Yo, i will miss you my great friend. The last time u chatted me was 29th of Jan 2014, i didnt know it would be the last.. RIP Segun (sheikh Al segla)"
"I still stare at your dp on my bbm and sometimes wish I could just BUZZ you. I sign-in on skype and somehow all I see are your call histories. You are still on my recent call log...How can you possibly be gone. You still teased me on how hungry you were last 2 fridays and how i had eaten all the food without giving you some. I couldn't wait for you to bring the new ride so i could test drive it. I'm still speechless; but consoled at the fact that your soul lives on; and you simply left before us. Till we meet to part no more. Rest On Segzy."
"Dear coz, i still find it had to believe you are gone, i wish we spent more of our adult time together, but the memories of our childhood handsout in victoria island still lingers sleep on dear cousin in the bossom of God"
My friend, my brother. I just can't stop seeing your smiling face. I have quite wonderful memories of u in our isl days. We never spoke or chatted regularly but when we did we talked about everything.
We really became close this 2014 and I thank The Lord God for u.U were truly a blessing Segun. I really miss u.
You will forever be remembered and loved."
"Dear cuz! It still feels surreal. You were such an amazing person and I hate that i didn't reach out to you as much as I should have. You lived a short but purposeful life, leaving so many lessons for us. I miss your smile! your warmth! Rest well cuz! Rest well."
Mother Earth may have swallowed your body...she will however never hold down your soul & spirit.
We are rudely reminded that we are here only for a while.
We'd play football endlessly after school then you'd drop me off in the NEPA Station-wagon afterwards with Tope Aina & Wale Bello.
You,Sir,were a gem...
To die in Christ is to live forever.
Sun re o!
"The righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. I know without a shadow of doubt that you have entered into Peace. You lived a purposeful & impactful life. The rest of us can only pray to be ready whenever the bridegroom comes.
Too many memories bro, from playing PacMan on your computer to when you couldn't believe that same lil' boy was getting married.
Sleep well bro...you will be missed"
Never knew the last time we saw in church was going to be the last...nor the last time we spoke on phone when you were trying to assist with an Estate Agent the last time we will speak....
It is so sad that you are gone but I think we can all console ourselves in knowing that you have left this troublesome world behind to be with The Lord.
You will forever be remembered and missed.
Rest in Peace my dear friend."
This still feels so surreal! I still cant't get my head round the fact that you are gone, that you are no more, that you'd never walk the face of this earth again! You were such a nice gentle man; quiet, caring, gentle, unasssuming and humble. So full of life and always had that charming smile for everyone around you! If only we all had a clue that we had such a limited time with you, we'd turn back the hands of time and make better use of it... It still hurts to remember this or the fact that I won't see you in church this sunday like always. If only we knew, if only we had a clue... Thank you for the life you lived, for the memories and for everything else. Go with the Lord... Sun re Segun..."
"My Dear Segun - It was nice to have worked with you and for the projects you delivered for us and saw to the resolution of issues raised. Do sleep in the Lord"
It's surreal that you're no longer with us. You were a calm, laid back person, a real gentleman, and I remember you being that way even when we were in primary school. May you rest well forever brother, in God's beautiful peace."
May God Bless your Soul...you were always there for me!!you were a great friend..Rest in Peace till we meet again"
"i opened the papers and nearly passed out. I can't believe you are gone...too many plans, too many memories, too many dreams we wanted to achieve. You lived life and enjoyed it, you were a good friend and confidant. Words cant express how i feel right now but i miss you so badly already. Cant believe i'll never get to see you again.
In our hearts forever."
"Segun...thank you for all the smiles and friendship.. Rest well in the Lord. May your family receive grace to bear your loss."
"Segun, you exuded warmth. You had a gentle mien. You had such a good heart. And your smile...oh, it could light up a room. I'm thankful that we got closer in the last few months. I have read our most recent chats over and over again. It all still feels surreal. You will be dearly missed, darling cousin. Rest well in His bosom."
"Segun, you lived a very short life and left me with a very long memory of you. You have done a great work and have impacted my life positively. You will forever remain in my heart. Rest in Peace Sege, the Lord awaits you at the gate of heaven."
"Segun Adebo, met you at Roti's wedding, time flies. It was a shock to learn that you had passed on. Never believed that our conversation in January would turn out to be the last one. I remember our numerous conversations on relationships, guys and girls and how you'd confide in me about girl problems and vice versa. A few days prior to your death, I sent you a whats app message to check up on you and catch up but oddly enough I never received a response. I tried your number as well but I couldn't get through to you. Two days later I heard you had passed on in the hospital. My regret is that I didn't take better advantage of the time we spent together as friends. I always assumed you'd be there and on so many occasions I postponed our meet-up sessions. I pray God gives your family the strength to bear this loss. I cannot imagine the pain they're going through. You had so much going for you...but God knows best. You were such a gentle and kind person. My eyes are filled with tears because you were such a lovely person. It is well. RIP till we meet to part no more in Heaven with our lord Jesus Christ."
"Seglar my friend and School son....Sleep well you always had that smile, would always explain and make all the sense in the world...Never thought I will be doing this so soon...Rest in his bosom bruv. Till we meet again."
"Dear Segun (cool lips),
You have lived a fulfilled life though in a short time during which a lot of live was positively touched. May the perpetual light of God continue to shine on you as you rest in peace."
It was just about ten months ago when you celebrated your last birthday. The birthday was one of few remarkable birthdays i have witnessed at MTN. A gentle man with ever inspiring smile.
Continue to Smile! for you grief no more. Rest in the bosom of almighty God. Sun re ooo!
- Olusesi Adebisi"
Baba Sege as we used to call you back in school,i still find it hard to believe that you are gone.You were one who was gentle,calm and always full of smiles.A perfect gentleman.
You will forever be missed, Rest on in the Bossom of the Lord my friend. Amen."
"#Speechless...May your gentle soul find rest in the bossom of our Lord n Saviour...I pray God give your family the fortitude to bear this loss. RIP Segun."
"Sunre oooo Oluwasegun .. Such a gentle man. You colleagues in MTN will surely miss u but you are in a better place. Untill we meet again , Rest in peace Bro ...."
"The simple message is for us to check our lives, Segun has lived his, May God count him worthy of Heaven.
Give your life for Christ, so that at the end, you can be assured of eternity.
Segun was a good friend and brother, He told me about his plan to marry and go for PH.D.
we still shared coconut rice n plantain upper week or so when he came to Ojota. he was so cool, peaceful and Humble.
May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss.............."
"Segun....forever smiling, soft spoken, very insightful. I don't know how to say goodbye cos I'm still living in denial... Can't accept that you're actually gone. I remember one of our skype sessions when i made fun of you showing off your bottle of sprite...never seen a man *blush* that much! My cousin who isn't really my cousin....Rest till we meet again"
"My dear brother, you were such a "Gentle Man" and had very good heart. Continue to Rest in Peace."
"Perfect gentleman... You are surely in a better place. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace."
"Segun seun adebo so hard to belive your really gone
Would forever miss u. Thank God for you and having a short wonderful time with you. You would be forever missed . I am so sure your resting in the bossom of the Lord. Its still so hard to say good bye...sun re oluwasegu rest in peace dear..."
"Baby, Can't believe dis happened but who are we to question the ways of the Lord. You are everything a girl could ask for and more. Your smile, tender heart, selflessness, courage and the ability to Love without holding back will always be remembered.
You left a long lasting memory in my heart and that of everyone around you and we would forever be grateful for your life.
God gave me you and God bless the broken road that lead me straight to you.
Love You Babe."
"Cant Believe this . Im still in shock , BABA SEGE, i cant believe this , Segun is the reason i have a Masters degree today , Segun supported me alll through our MSC program what ever i didn't understand he would lecture me he was an amazing friend i cant believe this we spoke recently we even planned on partying in Dubai in summer didn't know that would be the last time i would speak to my friend cant just believe this , REST IN PEACE BRO , LOVE YOU MAN ..."
"Sege baba! Really don't know how to say good bye... but I guess God knows best... just when I started getting to know the real you in person, u were taken away from us. you were a great man in the making.. open, loving and caring, charismatic to say the least. Today I believe the world has lost one of its few good people and we would forever and ever miss u! U will definitely not be forgotten friend. Rest in peace."
"Though we hadn't seen in awhile, from the comments here its obvious that your ever friendly smile even grew better. Though we were mates, you remained one of my sources of inspiration to succeed. I remember how we used to play soccer back then in NEPA quarters. Still can't believe you are gone. I miss you my brother, I miss you my friend."
"RIP bro may your soul rest in eternal peace still speechless."
"this is still soo surreal.......remembering every little detail and i cant believe it has all come to an end..Sleep well dear friend.....i will miss you."
"Segun, though we were not so close, it wasn't hard to tell that innately you were a good person. This is very painful to bear and you will be surely missed, rest well..."
"Segun, though we were never close but u left an impact on people you came across, we bless GOD for your life though short. May GOD comfort your family and friends you leftbehind RIP."
I remember ur contagious smiles, your calmness and smart talks. Will never forget how you were a good friend. I am sorry I didn't keep in touch as much as I should have, will continue to pray for you.
Rest in peace."
"Siggi Niggi (aka Baba jo o!!!). I still feel like I am having a bad dream that I have refused to wake up from. So many things keep playing in my head. All the trips and runs, gist, brotherly advice and so much more….
Baba jo!!! My friend, my bestman, my beloved brother… this wasn’t our plan!!!! But God knows best.
Coming home wont be the same without you…
How you lived you life told a lot about who you are and you will forever be remembered for that.
I am glad our path crossed and I will always be grateful for knowing such an amazing person.
Thanks for all your love, support and friendship.
Till we meet to part no more, sleep well.
Miss and love you bro."
"Segla....still can't believe you're gone....I remember them days in 100L when I used to drive to lekki 1 to check gbemi and chill with you and Bayo. We grew up together a lot of memories together. God has blessed us with a great friend. Thank you for being you, thank you for being a friend and brother, you will forever be missed.
REST IN PEACE"
"Our dear brother and our best man, I'm still in denial that you're gone. Segun,you will be missed everyday of our lives. I'm sorry you were taken so suddenly.
Thank you for staying by our side all through the wedding. I know death comes upon us when our work on earth is complete, am sure you'll be our guiding angel because you have always been there for us....
Thank you and we love you so much....."
A true friend from secondary school days. I remember all those days justlike yesterday. Always smiling and full of life. I appreciate your friendship and will miss you my bestie. CAN'T STILL BELIEVE YOUR GONE."
A true friend from secondary school days. I remember all those days justlike yesterday. Always smiling and full of life. I appreciate your friendship and will miss you my bestie. CAN'T STILL BELIEVE YOUR GONE."
"Segun, I thank you for the wonderful friendship you extended to me. I have to apologize for taking it for granted, I had assumed that we would have much more time to be friends and brothers and I would be able to balance the relationship by being as good a friend to you as you were to me. Bro, I still can't believe that this is happening but with a heavy heart I thank you for being who you are and for the good fortune of having known you. God Bless you and I pray you have eternal peace. I miss you and I Love you Sege."
this aint good bye my friend. for you have painted pictures of you upon the canvas of our hearts, like the first car you drove to epe, your smiles, the various stories you shared, jokes n all.
this aint good bye"
"Dear cousin, words cannot express how heart broken I am at the moment. All I can say is this world is like a market place where everyone will surely go home someday. Sleep on cozzz, till we meet to part no more."
"May God bless your soul dear Segun. Your cool, calm and kind nature made those around you love you very much. You will surely be missed. Rest in peace."
Mr. amazing, the undercover british journalist...my heart goes out to your loved ones. You were truly blessed with good friends and family. Those who knew you were equally blessed. You were loving and kind, you were a pleasure to be around. Mr. cool, calm and collected, you appeared quiet but you were full of life and always knew how to have a good time.
Memories come to me now and I smile. It still hasn't fully kicked in but it is what it is, God needs you more and so I accept His plan. I remember our talks, adventures and the good times, I will cherish them.
You have gone to a better place and I thank God for your life. I will miss you and I'm grateful to have been a part of your precious time here on earth.
"My dear friend Segun, you were a wonderful friend I will miss your smile there was no dull moment whenever I was around you. Rest in peace Darlyn."
Have a suggestion for us?
