My brother was like the stream that asks every one to drink.
Adeniyi lived like the Oak tree that provides shelter to other trees.
If tears could wake you, you would be amongst us now. Hmmmn, If only the testimonies of lives you had touched could do the wonders.
Adeniyi would bring families and friends together, then dance in the wind like a carefree soul. He taught me, with hard love. To Adeniyi, I must do business and must make profit and rely on the help of none. It is difficult not to learn to be tough, it is a compulsory part of life according to you.
Let me greet you like our Granny would : Adeniyi, Omo owa, Omo ekun. Omo Eleni ewere. Ijesha osere onile obi
Ijesha o ri 'di ishana
Ile l'omo owa ti n mu 'na roko
Omo owa, omo obokun
Ijesha l'omo a r'ere mu 'gbaja
Omo owa la r' oka nla p'omo y'oko. Adeniyi Sun re o

his Life

Early years

Adeniyi was born into an average family. The early years was not filled with the luxuries of childhood. Father was an average income earner while mother was supposed to be taking care of the kids at home until we all started school. Meanwhile Mum engaged in petty trade. 

One story that mum would never stop telling, was her last day of trade at the popular mile 12 market. Everything was going well with her trade until she noticed her son, Adeniyi, was missing. Her fellow market women/men went into disarray. The market gates were monitored, everywhere was searched, until they noticed a woman who had covered the barely 3yo with her hijab trying to sneak him out of the market square.

We grew up in an extremely queit neighborhood which had, close-by, a major road with high traffic. Mum bought some deep freezer, stock with different bottled drinks. Street hawkers did business with us. At an early age, the 2 grown children, Adeniyi & Adejoke helped mum out with the trade. When the 5 children had started primary education and mum started teaching in a nearby Primary school, the 2 children handled the business once they came back from school, with the help of Margaret, the help.

Adeniyi's passion for business had developed from an early age. Little wonder he dived straight into business when he finished his Tertiary Education. Adeniyi joined Glo Nigeria to learn the tricks of the telecom business. Upon equipping himself with the needed wisdom to excel in the trade, he branched out and started trading in telecommunications.

Hephzibah Communication, the company he founded became recognized as one of the major dealers in Nigeria right from the second year of business. They traded in all telecommunications collaterals and with all telecom operators in Nigeria. He, as the owner, was highly acknowledged by the operators. He was involved in several strategy meetings, across the globe, on how to move the telecommunications business to the next level. Adeniyi was an entrepreneur par excellence.

In 2016, Adeniyi started a Large scale industrial farming. He wanted to be involved in feeding the nation. He had a poultry farm, which before his death, boasted of over 30,000 birds. The piggery had no other match in the whole west of Nigeria. The farmland which was on a 100hectare boasted of varieties of foodcrop and cashcrops.

Adeniyi had passion for business and excellence, such that at a single meeting, any body would always want to meet him again. 

He was also a core Humanitarian. He believed in the Human race and would render help to anyone even without them asking. In all, he had 4 blood siblings, 3 sisters and 1 brother, but several other acquired brothers and sisters across the globe. Adeniyi, did everything to gain Heaven.

My hero left without a word of goodbye. You lived a life so gallant and flawless. You built bridges of gold in friendship. Had fields of golden corn in relationship. You ensured that everyone that crossed your path had a love story to tell. You believed,sincerely, in Christ and you shared the love of God. I read a post once were a friend eulogized his father and said he had a large shoe to fill. His Father's achievement I can't underestimate too, but then I smiled that day and said thank God we always lived to be 70 in our family. Hopefully, by then Adeniyi would have slowed down His pace to human level, even if he choose to leave first. Take a look at me now, do you see the empty space you left behind? Nobody is willing to try, because we are human & humbly understand the fact that you were an angel, not human.

In my years of living, nobody came close to being you in my life. True, there is no 2 of a kind, and you were the only senior I was blessed with. You were the only one who would wipe my tears and still keep my integrity intact. Right from childhood, you had the burden of listening, even if you had no time, until I was exhausted. Even until I became an adult,I threw it all on you. Had I know, it was a goodbye, I did have taken your last words to me serious and not say goodbye that day. You said I should outgrow some "ayooo" I said "ko Jo"

I used to marvel when you introduce me with Pride "this is my Sister" at one time you added "my pride" to your associate, I asked you about it at our last meeting, your answer still makes me smile. Right from childhood, you gave me a memory to tell with pride. Adeniyi mi owon, I miss you dearly

Almost a year ago, I cried like I've never Cried before( bro Niyi you know I can cry for Africa- I still cry when I  think of you) I  think  about you and I bless God for making me a part of your amazing life.  We came to a conclusion that you are not human.  You are an angel, a piece of heaven God blessed the Owoeye family with. I love and miss dearly.
