Lorenzo, it is exactly one year that you moved on to glory, the call I got from bro Femi is still very fresh and the word keeps playing in my head over and over, the words I was dreading to hear anytime I see a UK number calling me, but alas on the 16th May 2016 I got that call, "Sorry Bimbo! We lost Ahmed" Those words still hurt till date, how could this happen to someone so dear, a rear gem, kind hearted, a selfless gentleman to the core; why did this happen to our family, those were the unanswered word I had then and still have up till now. People told me I will have closure but I still do not have closure, my heart is still in pain, I always have this sharp pain and bitter taste in my mouth anytime I think of you, but in the midst of all these feelings, I cannot question God, he has the ultimate say. To God alone be all the glory for evermore. Lamide and the twins are keeping well, Sleep on my darling brother. Your Olori Afo

Brother Ahmed, your demise was a rude shock. Continue to rest in blossom of the Lord.
Posted by Adebola Adeokun on 16th May 2017
Dear Brother Ahmed Continue to rest in peace, I can't believe it's a year since you left as it feels just like yesterday. May God almighty continue to strengthen your family. Ha, we can only say it is well...

Hmmmmmm! my darling Lorenzo, today is the first of January 2017, went on my whats app and the last time we chatted was 11 April 2016. A sharp pain when through my heart at the continuous reality that we can't gist as we usually do especially on a day like this that we usually catch up on all the gist we have missed from the last time we spoke. I remember talking with you this time last year when I was in China on holiday. Hmmmmm! Oye Olorun o! I miss you dearly, words cannot explain how I feel from time to time at the taught that you have gone to be with our maker. I know you are in a better place but it is still a very painful pill to swallow that you are not with us. Your darling wife and lovely children are keeping well, your Olori Afo is trying to hang in there. Sun re O my darling coz.

My darling Lorenzo! I woke up this morning knowing that it is meant to be your 44th birthday, But Alas! I can't call you to wish you happy birthday as I usually do. I am confronted with the reality that I have been finding difficult to come to terms with that you are in the presence of your maker. Hmmmmmmmm! Only God understands why this happened to us as a family. It is just too difficult to move on and come to terms with the reality that you are resting in the blossom of our Lord Jesus Christ. I sometimes gaze into thin air and ask myself is it really true that you are no more, I check my whatsapp messages and for real our last conversation was in April, Hmmmm! Oye Olorun. Your lovely wife and wonderful children miss you immensely and we your entire family miss you as well. Words are not enough to qualify the grief we went through and we are still going through. We are being comforted knowing that All will be well in Jesus name. Sleep on my darling coz

I woke up this morning and sensed within me that there is something special about today. I have now realised it- Ahmed's birthday. You are no longer here to celebrate it but we celebrate on your behalf, knowing you are in a better place. My heart goes to your wife and children and I pray God in His infinite mercy and sufficiency will help them remember this day for good and meet them at their every point of need. He is a father to the fatherless and a husband to the widow. He will make good His promise to you and your children Olamide.
Posted by Adebola Adeokun on 4th November 2016
Bro Ahmed, Happy posthumous birthday. It really hurt that you are not here today but we celebrate you today; you are not forgotten.
Posted by Yetunde Oladeji on 4th November 2016
Happy birthday bro, been dreading today since forever, the sense of loss is so acute. Am sure you celebrating ... hmmmm if that's how it works over there. Bro you are missed terribly by Lamide and the girls and it tears my heart out... the family missing you as well but can't be compared to Your immediate family. I still keep wanting to pick up the phone to gist with you, catch up and update you etc and then the constant realization that I can't hits me like a bad blow. Will this pain ever go away? Will we ever stop missing you? Will we heal from your loss, ? These are things that constantly go through my mind, I stare at your pictures over and over and shake my head In complete disbelief. Oh lord, help us and strengthen us. Amen I woke up this morning to email alert from birthday alarm (as if I need a reminder), and to a text from your bank in Nigeria wishing you a happy birthday, and then re-reading Lamides birthday message on her bbm dp, and the tears just flows....

I just found out about Ahmed passing on and words cannot fully convey the shock, heartache and utter devastation that the news brought me. Ahmed was a friend and I pray that God in His Mercy will grant him eternal rest in His loving bosom. To his family I'd like to pray for God to comfort you in your time of loss and let you know that you can take some little solace in knowing that Ahmed left impact on every life he touched. I want to keep writing as the memories flood back.....all those times you popped into my mind, I wish I'd known that you were ill.....I will NEVER forget you.
Posted by Hadekunle Daniels on 14th June 2016
Bro Ahmed, am sure words will fail me,in expressing how i feel about the new of your sudden departure. You showed me a lot of things within the few months and year i knew you... I learned a lot I didn't know... to always forgive and be kind to everyone, But you forgot to teach me one last thing....How to let you go, of someone as precious as YOU! I know you didn't mean to leave so early, as you still watched my back few months back in cape town, South Africa. I will miss being your Naija Fashion Designer and a brother... Who You fondly Call me.... Hearing my name being called by your voice and Patronizing My Craft, I wish I got to say "Thanks You For being My Best Client" Before you were given to the sky, If God could grant me one last wish I'd ask to say.... "Good Night My Brother... Till We Meet Again. GOD KNOWS The BEST AND...."HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST" AMAO, AdeKunle Daniels -

Rude shock still it is Ahmed from the fateful day I heard of your demise till now. It will surely take a while to come to terms with your demise as it seems you have embarked on a journey whilst a sudden arrival of you is expected. Indeed you have gone on a journey earlier than reckoed to a beautiful paradise where we shall all visit someday at an appointed time. Memories of your pleasant, fun personality lingers and I pray the God of comfort to uphold , sustain and comfort the young family you left behind and your siblings in Jesus powerful name. I will miss your teasing me by calling me names such as 'Alhaja' at reunions and looking out for me to make sure I got a ride home safely. Adieu dear friend & brother till resurrection day!
Posted by Tobi Awoleye on 8th June 2016
Bro Ahmed, I sincerely wish I didn't have to do this. You left too early but who are we to question God. I remember meeting you back in 1996 when we first moved to England You were Yetunde''s voltron then and always fiercely protected her. Didn't like you then(lol), but early on into the years I came to respect you and understand that it was all from a position of love. I thank God for your life, I thank God you gave your life to Christ, I thank God for your beautiful wife Lamide and the twins, I thank God for Yetunde, Baba and Habib and all the family and loved ones you left behind. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace

Death be not proud, for those thou thinks't thou dost overthrow, die not. Bro Ahmed you will forever remain in our hearts; I was so confused,angry and sad when I heard the news. How could death be so rude and unfair to just snatch you away from us; we take solace at the thoughts that you are in a better place. Just about a year ago I visited you and your family in the U.K and you were such a cool, calm and extremely caring person, I did not know that would be our last moment together; I am only left with those memories as I keep replaying it in my head over and over again. You left way too soon but Bro Ahmed you are awake eternally in the bossom of the almighty God.
Posted by Temitope Kuku on 7th June 2016
Bro Ahmed...May your incredibly selfless and loving soul rest in perfect peace. I am still shocked but after all said and done we know that God gives and takes away, I can only submit that your soul was far too beautiful for this wicked world, now you live amongst angels where you truly belong. We will miss you very much and we love you. Sleep on beautiful soul...your memory lingers on. Tope & Lanre Kuku

Though I never met you, the outpouring of emotions here is a testament of what a great father, husband and brother you were. Rest in perfect peace Mr Ahmed. To the family he left behind, I say take heart and God will surely protect you all and give each and everyone of you the fortitude and strength to bear this irreplaceable loss. Adieu Ahmed.

Ahmed, it has been real tough for me to come to terms with your sudden demise..just remembering our growing up days as neighbors, schoolmates and good friends bring back teary smiles. I know you have gone to a better place and also re-assured that our God will always keep your family under his amazing grace. I will miss you bro. Continue to Rest in Peace. Adieu Ahmed (aka Edi Amala)

Brother Ahmed It breaks my heart to know this happened to you, in the last month of your passing I was always talking about you, I called your phone, sent a text, called lamide sent her a text too no response.. told Deji drive me down to Luton, at least when you see me at your doorstep you won't send me back...little did I know that you were in the hospital fighting to stay Alive.. I only met you few years ago and I can say that you are one of the nicest people I know, cool calm and collected, Deji speaks highly of you and I love you the way He loved you..(HE still finds it hard to believe you are gone).... Brother AHMED!!!! NO FAREWELL words were spoken, No time to say goodbye.. You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why?.. Our heart still aches in sadness and secret tears still flows........ What it means to lose you..No one ll ever know... Please keep watch over Lamide and your sweet little girls ONLY GOD CAN COMFORT THEM N GIVE THEM PEACE. #FOREVERINOURHEARTS# #DONLORENZO# ADIEU .

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAR COUSIN I’m bereaved, confused, and deep in agony and pains. This is very painful. Why did this happen to my darling cousin/brother now? Not at this time at all. Loss of a loved one is not an easy thing to comprehend. Ahmed was a very special, quiet and a nice person that always had sweet gentle smile on his face which was accompanied by his cheerful laugh. My dearest cousin was a very calm, caring, honest, respectful, careful, mature, diligent and a wise gentleman. He was a darling person that everyone would want to be around. He was a person that loved, and cared about others and made other people’s happiness and problems a priority rather than his own happiness as a priority. All this and many more makes me and our entire family know your worth. Although people do say “we don't value what we have until we lose it”, but not in your own case my darling cousin. Myself and our entire family know your worth while you were alive and even when you have passed away. We are greatly missing you. Ahmed was a good person with wonderful personalities and this will last a lifetime. You accepted others without looking at their weaknesses and always noticed the best in people. You have a heart that forgives the worst, the mind that forgets the bad situations and the soul that never lose faith or cause pains for people and that is who you were. My dearest cousin, you have passed away too soon. I will remember you often in different thousand ways that I cannot begin to mention at this sensitive period. Your life was a blessing to everyone around you, you memory will be a treasure. You have been loved by everyone beyond words. Sincerely, you will be miss greatly beyond measure. “Those we love can never be more than a thought away…… for as long as there is a memory, they live in our hearts to stay”. I thank God for your special gift of forgiveness and gentle heart which will linger in my memory forever. A well spent life with unique qualities that you had was priceless and incomparable. My heart broke when I heard about your untimely exit. It was a huge challenge that is very difficult for all of us to handle. It is a big blow for me and every member of our family. Though, I still can't believe that you are no more. Well I will take heart because I cannot continue to question God. Your death create a huge vacuum that will take me and our entire family years to fill. At this time my prayer is that the lord will give us all the strength to face whatever situation we are in at this mourning period of our loved one. Also, our greatest comfort in this grief period is to know that the almighty God is in control of everything. Though my heart still hurts each time I think of my cousin that had a good heart towards everyone, but I never knew that it was indeed a great privilege of reunion with him last year. I keep on weeping; water keep on rolling from my eyes so much that I will never be able to see him again in life. Lord you know better than I do and I strongly believe that he had gone to a much better place. Rest in perfect peace. I will miss you and think about you still, I will never forget you my dearest cousin. I love you always. Sun re o my darling cousin.

Ahmed I cannot express how I feel. You were a very special person to me and my family. Every day I wake up and it’s like a dream to me that you’re no longer with us. One thing I will always remember is your kind heart and selflessness, which has always shone through, always available to help people, with a smile on your face. At our last conversation, you said, “All will be well”. ...... But the scripture says we should not weep like men without faith. And we can't question God either but we should be rest assured, you are in a safe place and resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. I will miss you so much and I pray that the Lord Almighty will grant you eternal rest. Much Love, Femi Kuku

When I heard of Ahmed passing, I was in shock for days. I have never cried so much in my life. I have tried to put into words how I feel about Ahmed and can't still find it. Ahmed was a great man and a selfless human being who is willing to help anyone. I remember one his kindness gestures when he offered to go and visit someone in detention with me. He spent his money and time to help us out. I am missing him so much and I wish I have more time with you. Allah knows best. He his the givet and the taket. Who are we to question him. May your soul rest in perfect peace and may Allah continue to guide your wife and your children . Sun re o. Till we meet again.

Tribute to my Husband. Adewale Ahmed Adeokun...from your dear wife. Adewale mi, you meant the world to me, you completed me,you were my rock. Although our marriage was brought to an abrupt end by death, our years together were joyful. You were my best friend. I want to say a big thank you to all the friends and family members for the outpouring of love over the past few weeks. It's been extraordinary and each story you have shared will keep Ahmed alive in our hearts and memories. I met my Husband over 12 years ago. His gentleness and kindness won my heart over. We would have been celebrating our 10th year wedding anniversary this year if death hadn't snatched him away at such a young age. We had our fair share of challenges in our marriage, from waiting on God for children for several years to losing both our parents. It was all bearable because I had him by my side.He gave me the experience of being deeply understood, truly supported and completely and utterly loved. I will carry that with me always. Most importantly, he gave me the two most amazing, beautiful and adorable children in the world. He hardly got upset, always quick to reassure me that all would be well. Where I was unsure, he figured it out. He was completely in love with our twin girls. He called them his "princesses". We had so many plans together. All he wanted to do was to make us happy and comfortable. As we put you to rest, we are burying only your body, your spirit,your soul,your amazing ability to give is still with us, it lives on in the stories people are sharing of how you touched their lives, your spirit lives on in the love that is visible in the eyes of our family and friends, in the spirit of your children. Things will never be the same, but the world is a better place for the years my beloved husband lived. Sleep well my love, Till we meet to part no more. Luv always. Your "my baby".
