Hummm can’t believe I’m writing this, who will look for my trouble and make me laugh when I’m trying to bone and ignore people?
You always have a joke a face or something to crack people up.
You were a kind hearted person loved by many even those who meet you for the first time, leave with a good impression.
Thank you Tony for the lesson you taught us.
Sleep my friend till we meet again.♥️

Hey Tony,

This is it! It is indeed real and final.

From a simple meet for masa to a friend.

I was just expecting basic masa - you blew my mind with the mai shanu intro aka acquired taste. Hahaha

You looked out for me, even in a foreign land.

Glad I got to know you.

Rest well now Tony, and may God comfort your little ones and your entire family.

How do you start to talk about someone you have not met yet know so much about from what you have heard . I have not met you yet I have heard so much of how a nice man  Great husband , wonderful brother and a dear son you are . I can connect to that because I have met with your siblings and they are so very marvelous people and while you were sick they had no other topic except you and how much they wanted you back on your feet but death was so very cowardly.
You are a good person and will be very much missed . I however know that you still live in the hearts and memory of all that know and love you.
Sleep well my friend that I never met . I know you are with the lord and we are all consoled. Some day we shall meet in eternity. As I type this little message I come to truely understand when they say it is well with my soul, you are at peace and indeed it is well with you . Adieu

My dear Alfred, I'm still trying to come to terms that you are gone. You were a young man with so many dreams, plans, very ambitious and never wanted to fail or be reckoned with failure. I watched you keenly even as a young man and saw how determined, dogged and staunch you were in your beliefs, both in life and career. I remember when we talked about your career while you were still at university. I could see how focused you were, knowing fully well what you wanted. I suggested you did a lot of professional courses to boost your career and I'm glad you were able to achieve that. Now I understand why you wanted to do so much and wanted achieving everything possible, your time on earth was going to be short. Even though you were not aware of that, you had so little time to do a lifetime journey and your spirit guided you through it all. To Kyola and children, thank you for making Alfred stay on earth a memorable one. My brother Fakah, I know loosing your only son has been very devastating and painful but God loves good things too. Auntie Ann, Alfred was not just a son to you but he also played the role of a husband and a good one at that. He was determined to always put a smile on your face. Only the heavens can comfort and console you the parents because humanly, words fail us. Anto, Ebido and Hilda, it is well ko, the Lord will strengthen you all. Alfred! we thank God for a short, but well spent life. May you find eternal peace and rest in the bossom of our Lord. Till we meet on that glorious morning

This has taken me a while because meehhhn, these are not words I thought I'd share with you or about you.

Guy.

I'm grateful for every chance to catch up and even all the banter. That I will definitely miss. This is harder than I thought it would be.

Thank God for that decision and the outcome. God will keep and protect and lift and provide for everyone you loved and cherished.

Thank you for always being kind, for the silliness and giggles and for all the broad shoulderness.

This was definitely not the plan but we go work am your way and come out on top.

Rest well. Tony. Sha know that this thing pain me.

Alfred ,so here is the end of the road on planet earth but the beginning of a new and most important one in heaven living on....... Keep shining from above like a ⭐ and Guardian Angel on to the paths of your loved ones.
Gone too soon but lives on........
Posted by Henry Eranoba on June 15, 2021
I am deeply saddened by your demise. I remember meeting you after many years at the family Thanksgiving sometime last year. You gave me your phone number and told me to keep in touch with you.
Do we morn, grief and cry? Yes.
Our consolation is in the fact that you are in a better place than this world.
Rest in the Lord's bosom, big bro.
Posted by Ehis Lawrence on June 15, 2021
Bros, what a brutal shock it was to hear the news at about 3am from my father. I always looked forward to seeing your posts on FB and the Intresting engagements that followed most times. I remember the picture of you and my parents you sent to me when they came for your childs dedication.

Growing up as next door neighbors with your family was no doubt an Intresting era of my life I can hardly forget. I cannot reel out moments here sufficiently but I relish lots of memories. Your resilience, hard work and tenacity to succeed was and is inspiring. I can only pray at this point that the good Lord rests your soul in his bossom. May God alone console your families, hard as it is..

Rest with the Lord, big brother.

Posted by Gamdyen Guyit on June 15, 2021


“Da - Guyit!!!” Is what Mr Fakah used to call me. Only him had those stories about me he loved to tell when we’re with friends on a round table. He’d make everyone laugh and would leave no stone unturned in expressing his gratitude for the years of friendship we shared.

This is Deep, it hit close to home… 30 years of genuine friendship made you a brother to me. There’s practically nothing we didn’t share.

We graduated secondary school, University together, walked down the aisle with Amazing women. We had Kids who became brothers. Areli became a son to you like Asher is to me. On the Day Arielle was born I felt our family just grew bigger, You asked me to be her god father and I felt honored knowing you wouldn’t make such decisions carelessly. You made me see life is certain ways I never understood. I became a better man because you where my friend. Losing you left me confused. Who am I to question God? I only asked him what the real message behind your death was.

Life already isn’t feeling the-same knowing Mr Fakah is no more with us. Your family is in great hands my man. We will do our best to put a smile on their faces. Till our job is done on this earth.

Rest In Peace my dear Friend…
Posted by Esther Adole on June 14, 2021
Mr Fakah!!! as I’d fondly call you whenever we would see.You made me laugh so much all the time.You were difficult to miss whenever you were anywhere.We miss you,your wife and kids miss you and we hope to see you again on the last day.
Rest in perfect peace!
Posted by Zakari Salven on June 14, 2021
Tony...went through our last chat on Facebook messenger and... You will be missed greatly but I know you are in a better place. Thank you so much for being a brother.
Posted by Vicky Akuhwa on June 14, 2021
No,I'm never saying farewell
Or any half hearted recited crap
I'm never reffering to you in past tense
And it's not because...DENIAL
It's a deep knowing that you are here
In our memories you live, FOREVER.
Too many indications your spirit kinda knew
You kinda knew your time here was done
How else could you know to be so intentional
So intentional about good. Good and GOD........
I met you first during my surgery...I was so scared
Scared of dying..hahahahaha very funny right?
You kept reassuring me, we prayed together
You were so sure I was not gonna die!
I pulled out of the surgery and we celebrated!!
You said "see? You didnt die" ..............
I'm no longer afraid of dying.!
Post surgery, you kept checking on me still
You never forget Tony, kind, emotional, selfless.
Told you before, I'm saying it again...THANK YOU
For helping me when my faith faltered,
I'm happy I told you just how much I value YOU.
TRUE FRIEND.
STAND UP GUY
MAZAAAA
Was with you the first time you were in the hospital
I sensed you were downplaying it, so I kept calling
On the phone, prayed with you, read bible verses
You poked fun at my style of prayer...hahahahaha
Life happened, and i got drowned in it for a moment.
For just a blinking moment.
I knew something was off when I sent messages.....
Birthday prayers, and no response..NOTHING.
my heart skipped a beat....but I shook it off
Now here we are.......unreal happenings
You're with GOD now, hold the forte buddy.
For all the goodness and selflessness you stand for
Your Family will know no lack in jesus name!!!!!
GOD BLESS YOU TONY
GOOD MAN.

Farewell!
Even though I don't know you personally, I heard incredible things about you through friends. May your soul continue to rest in peace. God comfort family and friends in bereavement.
Posted by Pirfa Penzin on June 14, 2021
Feisty gutsy Tony!

The man everyone wants in their corner. You know the battle is finished when he is on your side and it is over for you when he's in the opposing corner.

Nobody ever knew when you needed them in your own corner because you were busy supporting others.

Death cornered you but the angels got your back and I know they are happy to have you in their corner.

Enjoy the peace in God's corner, you deserve it....

Posted by Fatima Babande on June 13, 2021
Even the years of distance and silence could never diminish the lasting impression you left on everyone who was fortunate to cross paths with you. You will be fondly remembered by a whole lot of us who saw you reach for the stars and do absolutely EVERYTHING with your short but impactful life. You were the realest OG Tony and you will always be remembered as that. Soar on higher with your angels wings!
Posted by Solomon Obidah Yamma on June 14, 2021
I was shocked to learn about your sudden shocking demise in far away Ottawa, Canada. May your soul rest in peace with the Lord, brother. Amen
Posted by Bitemya Sambo-Donga on June 13, 2021
Even as I write this, the thought of dealing with your passing is a tough pill to swallow.

You were a brother and good friend, whenever we caught up, it was literally just that. I cherish many of our conversations.

Flamingos! Denny Crane and Alan Shure! From music, movies, to every intentional conversation that Blessed us both. Gaskiya kam, I will really miss you. Your sense of humour and deep love for the things of God.

Thank you Alfred, rest in the bosom of our Lord, till we meet to part no more.

The Lord shall keep your family, in Jesus name, Amen.
Posted by Grace Dongkum on June 13, 2021
Although I never met you in person, you seemed to be that larger-than-life big brother of my baby sister Tonia. She would always mention your name "Alfred" and I'd see the pride and love in her eyes whenever she does. It's obvious you lived and loved well. If prayers could bring you back....... However we judge God faithful even in this. Rest in perfect peace, Alfred. Stay strong Mummy, Tonia, Henrietta and Hilda. May the Lord comfort you as only He can.
Posted by Wale Akinjogbin on June 13, 2021
It still doesn't feel real or make any sense. I have been speechless since I heard, that dark Saturday morning. 

Last time we saw at the Aire's, we had such good laughs and remembered old times, you dropped me back at my house and we had a good man to man conversation and as usual it was filled with living for for family and finding ways to make it better for them.
That's who I know you to be! loyal to a core, selfless, confident yet humble. Remembered old times.
We actually started remidials together in ujay and you were one of my first friends. You later left and still were friends with my friends in Zaria. I still don't know how to say it, I'm not there yet. So I will just say... Till we meet again, My brother, My Friend.
Posted by Chika McCollin on June 13, 2021
Dear Tony, I have been finding it difficult to write this tribute, it just makes everything seem so real, I keep going back to whatsapp and IG to see if you have read my last message. You were such a great guy, so full of life and very protective of anyone you call your own, you had a big heart and loved hard. Remember the last time you were in London with Kyola? the laughs we all had at the Borough Market, the trip to The Clink Prison, London Bridge and Tower bridge confusion, oh remember the guy at the bar entrance asking me for a light, the rude jokes, Playing that scene as I write this, kai Tony with a straight face (lol) You always teased me about it.
Oh Tony I'm so sorry I wasn't there for you like you were for me when I was ill, you were the first to know and insisted I called 111 just to be safe and kept checking everyday, voice calls and chats, when I wasn't responding, you video called insisting to see my face to be sure I was okay. That was the kind of person you were, always there to cheer, help and support. I feel terrible Tony, It's breaking my heart writing this and I can't even imagine how kyola, the kids, your mum, Tonia and the rest of the family are handling your exit.
"A true friend is never truely gone. Their spirit lives on in memories of those who loved them". I will keep the fun memories mate, you will never be forgotten ❤. Fly Tony heaven has called you home.
Posted by Umar Abdulsalam on June 13, 2021
When I sent you a birthday wish on WhatsApp and didn't get a response, I knew something was wrong because you always responded to my chats. I got even more worried when Tonia didn't respond when I enquired about you, only to receive the news of your passing. It's still hard to comprehend. You were one of those who patronised my strawberry business. Always passionate about Nigeria. A family man too. You will surely be missed. I pray that God will grant the Family you left behind the fortitude to bear this huge loss. I'm glad our paths crossed.
Rest in power brother.
Posted by Anthonia Ojile on June 13, 2021

My name sake!!! I remember the last time we saw and joked about our similar names... Today you are no more, It seems like a very long dream. I want to wake up.

Ohhhhhh Tony! If only tears could bring you back.

You were a hard working man that faced the world with so much boldness and strength. A good man. My friend Kyola had a real companion and friend in you.
God in his infinite mercies will comfort and strengthen her through this.

Rest in perfect peace till we meet in heaven.
Posted by Longji Gonsum on June 13, 2021
My deepest condolences to your beloved family. Only God can adequately comfort. May your all find comfort in God and in the memories you have shared with your son, brother, husband and father. Rest in peace

May your candle never burn out in the lives of those you left behind. Keep shinning in heaven till we come join you too. One love bro.
Posted by Babatunde Olajubu on June 13, 2021
I received the news of your passing with great shock and sadness. I was optimistic you would beat the illness with the same tenacity you used to beat the other challenges life had thrown at you before now. I can only pray the Almighty continues to look over the family you left behind and grants them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Continue to Rest In Peace.
Posted by Esther Ighodalo on June 13, 2021
Big Brother Alfred was what I called you because in the short while I have known you, you were so to me you always had encouraging words for me and you made me feel like my father was still here with me anytime we spoke it hurts a lot that you are gone so soon we made plans last Christmas on visiting but you are gone it is hard to fathom all this and it hurts you will be missed big brother but you will always remain in our hearts you made a difference in my life and I will always remember. God knows best why he called you home so soon Rest In Perfect Peace Big Brother.

Dearest Tony, you were a friend and a brother. I woke up one Saturday feeling really low because it was my mom’s 4th memorial and I tried so hard not to break down during the day till I got news of your passing at night. Tony this hit really hard honestly. You have always been there for us. I remember how you kept calling when you heard she passed and how you made efforts to come and say hi. I remember how you reached out and asked how you could help when our son was abducted, I remember the salads you ordered and had delivered to me just because you saw my comment on a post, I remember our last chat in April. You have just always been there and this has hit me so hard. Thank you for being a wonderful friend and brother. May God console Kyola and your family. Rest In Peace Tony, thank you for everything

And there He whispers to you that You are His and He is Yours Forever!!! You are with the Triune God,in Whose presence there is Fullness of Joy and at Whose right Hand there are pleasures Forevermore!!!!!!!
It well indeed! Through it all,it is well with you!!! It is also well with all those who cherish you,as they trust and let the Triune God make it well for and with them
We grieve at our inability to access your presence physically but we thank God that we can do so spiritually,through the means that He has made available to us,through Jesus Christ.Our eyes are on Him and so,it is well!!!

Tony Tony...gentle giant with the coolest sense of humor ever...I remember you always telling me about how I had what it took to be on a show like big brother to the extent you called me in 2009 to inform me about the Auditions going on(thats how i knew and made it to the show actually).
With tears in my eyes and a heavy heart I say to you my dear friend...Rest in Power till we meet again...
Posted by Donald Nwanguma on June 12, 2021
Tony,

The news of your death came to me as a shock on that morning of the 5th.

The first time we met was in school, you played the drums so well and I did enjoy playing beside you. You were an excellent drummer.

I read our recent chats and I cannot believe you are gone. Tony, you were a good man and a good friend. I’ll miss you bro.

Goodbye Tony, We shall meet on the resurrection morning.

May God take care of your family.
Posted by Ruby Edet on June 12, 2021
This is hard to write. I have very few words to express the grief felt. Rest on Tony. You are and will always remain a beacon of hope. A light in this very dark world. A positive force in this negative world. I have probably known you for very long. I am happy I got to reunite with you recently and I witnessed your glow, your warmth and kindness. Oh how you shine... God will keep you safe and happy until we meet to never part. I pray that the foundation of your mammoth foot print on this earth will be enjoyed by your wife and children. I will remember you dear friend.. my family will remember you .Thank you Anthony Alfred Fakah... You will live forever in the hearts of many... You will live forever in my heart dear Tony.... Rest Easy we love you.

Memories of a lot of fun times we shared keep flooding my mind and how you influenced a lot of things I accomplished.

You were so many things to so many people...

Tony,
You will be missed by so many, I will miss you my friend. You were a friend ; You were my friend , a support through a lot. You were a man of many colours.

Thank you for the adventures, thank you for the listening ears, thank you for the fun moments, thank you for the special moments, Thank you for everything!!!

I pray for your family , May the Lord himself comfort them. I know there are a lot of us that have been crushed by your early departure. Still feels unreel.

Goodbye Tony, I hope we meet again.

I am usually the one with a lot to say.
Ordinarily, I'd write epistles and all but this is different.
If I was prepared for this, maybe things would have been different. I guess the circumstances makes this a strange event. I am told the choices we make in life will bear testimony to the stories that are told of us.
In all, I have good stories of you and the brief "twinship" we shared,to tell.
I celebrate your memories, all of them and most importantly the man you grew up to become.

Your passing is the clearest indication that we are all mortal. That we will all exist this stage and hopefully, proceed to take our seat in the Great Hall.

I didn't know I'd write this much, I didn't know I'd write you a eulogy, did I? I thought there was time, alas...

There is ONLY ONE ANTHONY ALFRED 'twinnae' FAKAH!

Tony the drummer, the lipton guy. Tony with the difference names on Facebook. Sometimes, I'd look for you for bants and see you had changed your name yet again.
This one cuts deep I can't lie.
You were free, you were playful, you were deep. Thank you for knowing you and may your soul rest in peace.
You were a guy's guy.

Posted by Anoyi Joy on June 12, 2021
Last Saturday could have easily passed as one of the best in recent times as it was so cool and restful.
There was nothing to do in Particular as I had help with your "Dojo", she was at her favourite Aunty's house and enjoying alot of attention.

I had several things in mind as usual, but the most Dominant and frequent was you.

I checked our chats to see if you've finally read them after almost a month, I thought to ask my friend who is to travel to canada next week if he can help me take Roasted Goat to you and your family ( believing firmly and you should have recovered fully and reached out to me already.
Then finally i wondered why we haven't gotten any vital information up until now, that I wanted to voice out to Ele but then I held back because that would be the umpteenth time and she may think I'm paranoid ).

Hmmmm
Little did I know that  my cool and Restful Saturday was going to come crashing....

"Jesus!!!!, Anoyi where is your phone ? Tony Fakah didnt make it"..... 

You loved me so much and always wanted the best for me, you said I should always open up that you and Ufuoma would rescue me from any situation
when my daughter Ufedojo was born, you extended the same love to her, you are the only one who calls her Dojo and have never failed to send her gifts for every milestone .

You were nothing short of a Big brother to me, in fact I would say Ufuoma asked you to act in his stead as he's already growing old and tired of loving me the way he used to 
You played that Role perfectly and I'm grateful to God for the few but Rich years of our Relationship.

I wont lie, it's been the one of the toughest week in my life, I've cried so hard in between especially when I imagine how cold and lonely your wife and kids are in Canada that's actually a hard place for anyone to be at....
Oh God 

One thing I know is that God will never leave your family, he will fill that void and give them Peace and Joy inspeakable.

I miss our gossips, loud laughs, you and Ufuoma's mentioning me in taunting Posts that dont necessarily concern me just to tease me.

Everyone who experienced you speak so highly of your Love and devotion to your family and friends and it makes me so proud and grateful to enjoy a part of it. Thank you Brossss

ADIEU TONY FAKAH

I've dreaded this moment.
The tears, the pain, the questions... the hhmmmm's... the PAIN!!!! Kai!

Quite a number of people that year in ABU used to wonder how Tony and I were friends. In their eyes, you were too crazy and I was too gentle. If only they knew behind that loud mouth was a super sized emotional being with a large heart and a kind soul who loved God, loved his family, loved his people, loved his drums (and sticks), loved his shoe collection and Fred Hammond.

Actually, in the beginning, you were the obnoxious annoying drummer I had to deal with at every rehearsal. You had a good laugh about everything without remorse and you seemed to be your own boss. I led a song off key once and I haven't heard the last of it till today (yes, I still hear your voice in my head singing "wo wo wo").
Then came 'Drums Night Out' and you carried it on your head even more than I did; you stuck by me and made it happen like it was your dream. From fundraising to inviting guests to executing... We walked under the scorching sun in Kaduna, jumped from bus to bus looking for the best drum parts -they had to be the best with Tony; anyone just won't do. And you didn't mind roughing up those shoes you so dearly cherished.

There's always light when you show up; I cannot forget those early Saturday mornings when you'd knock on my door as if to say "no time for salutations, just get ready before we miss the masa woman". I'd grudgingly go with you because men! That masa was lit. And when you noticed I wasn't an early bird, you would go, buy the masa, knock on my door, hand over a bag of masa and you're off as if to say again, "no time for salutations, God forbid the masa gets cold before I get to Akenzuwa".
How can I forget all our Jos and Lagos waka or how you came to save the day when my cousin and I had an accident in Abuja.
My story can't be complete without mentioning you. Life happened and we weren't in touch a lot and I'm so sad I wasn't able to be in your lives as much as I would have loved to but I am grateful for the memories we shared. I will cherish them for life.

You are the true definition of selfless and loyal. How you made time for all your friends still beats my mind. And how you max out life is so exemplary; you lived 100%, loved deeply and laughed hard!
I now know what it means when you say "kayan duniya za su shude; su shude a hanun mu" 
Thank you for teaching us how to live well.

This is still very hard but I thank you, Tony Fakah, for being my great friend and dear brother. Thank you for always having my back. Thank you for caring so deeply. Thank you for all the times you checked up on me and for constantly assuring me that you're here -I know you still are.

Dearest Alfred, life brought us together as cousins, you have always been family to me, and everyone, you made us laugh most of the time, and you cheered us on, midnight came at noon, my heart broke into many pieces, but I know God has a better plan for you...we will miss u, miss how u hug and laugh and turn up for us, most of all we will miss your love, and we will miss having to see you grow grey. Thank u for sharing your life with us, God be with you till we meet again. Adieu!

Hummm can’t believe I’m writing this, who will look for my trouble and make me laugh when I’m trying to bone and ignore people?
You always have a joke a face or something to crack people up.
You were a kind hearted person loved by many even those who meet you for the first time, leave with a good impression.
Thank you Tony for the lesson you taught us.
Sleep my friend till we meet again.♥️

Dearest Tony, its been 5 weeks of silence, the back to back messages left unanswered,  I knew you would scream stalker alert and I would have a good laugh but hey, God had other plans.  I know we have had our rough patches but it only created a bond death can't steal..You were like a big house with so much space to accommodate many but would rather stay under the rain before you asked for help... How is the view?...I  always asked you... only way of getting into you head. You were dependable.  For me you gave it all.. d hugs and the Axe . The hugs to celebrate my wins or see me through a rough patch while the axe to cut off my insecurities.  ..you did not spare me there. You saw me Tony... my light and and my darkness. Always believed I was better , can be better... I know someday I will stand where you stood and see exactly what you saw.... and I will say yes Tony the view is amazing. You never felt shame in tears ...it was I that will always say cry for what na..but its ok now, I won't stop them when they come.
The pain ...the ache.. the disbelief...the questions ..it all lingers. 
Thank you for giving always giving yourself . You will always be loved and never forgotten. I pray God comforts your entire family in a way only He can .
To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die. Thomas Cambell. 
Till we meet again T.

I may not be able to fully express just how I felt when I heard,and how I feel right now. We talked on the phone about a couple of months ago, I had no idea the strange way your voice sounded was because you were battling so much even then.
We really had great plans Tony, its so hard to think they will never happen the way we thought they would. 
You were such a phenomenal guy,always so alive, so  boisterous, so full of energy and innovation.
Brother and dear friend.......you will always be in my heart.
