Ebimo, it's been a year....Still like a dream. We all miss you. Facebook is no longer interesting... naija politics would have made you really vocal right now. Continue to rest in perfect peace.

Dear Tony,

You will always be in our hearts. I miss all the political banters we had, playing in the same choir and all. The Lord bless your soul and may He continue to take care of your family.

It's a year Tony Fakah Lawi as we call you for us who knew you from ABU since you left the world! You are sorely missed. I remember all the political and football banters, frank talks, family life and much more. All the KD hangouts... Gosh I miss you man! Continue to rest.
Posted by Simi Dabup on June 5, 2022
Dear Alfred,

May your kind cheerful soul continue to rest with the Lord amen...

It's a year today and I still feel the pain of your sudden demise...

I did not look forward to June this year because June 5th is now a date to recall with deep sighs but great memories...

God keep your family strong and blessed

Ebimo!!! My "mu ne" partner ✌️
You chose to leave on the day of my mum's death anniversary
Double the pain
My prayer is that you're so damn happy wherever you are
God knows best why some questions will never be answered
You lived truly
Rest in power!
Soar ️

Dear Alfred,

Somethings I probably would never have told you if you were here, because I have pride -

I am proud of the man you grew up to be eventually. I pray that in some way, shape or form, you could know how proud I am of you, and the things you achieved in your time here.

I cannot put into words how much I miss you occupying somewhere on this earth. I miss you and your imperfections, your almost absent tolerance levels. I would tolerate EVERYTHING, if it meant we would have you for longer.

Something else I probably never told you - and even when God eventually shows you this post, you would laugh your head off because frankly…’You Say Wetin??’ - I have love for you. But you always actually knew this.

Finally, I am so sorry. I haven’t coped well this past year. I haven’t been as strong as you always knew me to be (I think). I have sucked at coping. God has done a lot for me this year; I have been grateful. But everything is dampened. You’re not here to do hype-man duties. I cry foolishly when nobody is looking. I dunno when I will grieve less. You won’t believe how internally damp I have become.

Still, I’m trying. Everyday. I won’t stop trying. I’ll be better when I come back next year. What else can I do?
Posted by Ufuoma Dogun on June 5, 2022
Continue to rest bro!!!

God knows that you would have had more than a lot to say about the entire political season, even bursting vein and cussing everyone out about Tinubu and Atiku. You would definitely have made more 'enemies' by now as you for don block people wey dey annoy you.

You would have hyped Tule for her yeye birthday pictures until her head go burst, as her number one fan. You, Chiboy and Ogoma would still have been cowards unable to mention that person you all gossip about without ever mentioning the name. By the way, two of them still indulge in that foolishness.

You would have been giving us daily update of the Johnny Depp case, even though most of us for no send, and you would have lost your mind over the killing of the Christian girl in Sokoto.

Hope you are good over there? Momsie, Tonia, Henrrieta and Hilda are trying and dealing with it, but it has been extremely hard, especially for Tonia. Momsie is even dealing with it better than her but she will come to accept that you moved past it.

Kyola is coping. She is a trooper, even though you can tell from her many status update that she misses the hell out of you. She is trudging but without you by her side, the journey is very laboured. Asher is growing up fast and doing big brother things, while Ali has started rocking to old school groove. Told Kyola that she has an old soul like you.

Continue to shine your love on all of them, as we continue to hold your memory in our hearts and mind.

God bless your soul bro!!!

Haba Tony Fakah!! I am still pained and heart broken.So when we spoke for 1 hour that day,that was the last time i would hear your voice?My crying partner on facebook,my fellow physicist,my drummer boy,My guy,Fam!..God knows Brother..Rest Tony.
Posted by Anthonia Fakah on December 5, 2021
You have been literally out of this world for six months Alfred. It's still confusing, still as heart-wrenchingly painful as it was that day. For the first time ever I am completely clueless & helpless. I have no control, I have absolutely no idea how to bring myself out of whatever this current state is. In the past six months I have tried. Hard. I've been to see where you're buried, wore your clothes everyday, sat in your chair, ran around your house with your kids, spent hours and hours relieving your whole life with Kyola.

If the shoe was on the other foot, you would have done so much better. You wouldn't be so lost. You would have pep-talked everyone. I'm lost for a minute when someone refers to you as 'passed'.

Even when it kept getting bad in hospital, it was supposed to be a matter of time, you’d be back. You’d have been forced to slow down, but you’d be here…and by now we would have had fight no. 10,001 over one random matter. I was blindsided by this reality.

This is the most painful thing ever. One that as long as I’m still literally in this world, is something I must endure. Everyday. It sucks.

I could not bring myself to writing this tribute . Tony Lawi we used to call you! You were a friend who understands and always go the extra mike for friendship. We met at the University and b came good friends. Always checking up when any lagged! I will miss all the banters. It's was heart wrenching when the news broke. The young family you leave behind, your mum and sisters! Rest in peace Alfred Fakah! You will never be forgotten!
Posted by Dorothy George Wuyep on August 31, 2021
Hey Bro ! I still come here to read the tributes it is like talking with you . Maybe im getting paranoid and kinda still in denial ,I have this feeling that you are here and reading all these tributes . I haven't gotten the courage to talk to Kyola , i feel she needs support not a crying freewoman crying a River, but i am mindful of her and i promise i will keep checking on your family . But everytime i go on Facebook there are so many Memories of you and it feels like you will respond. I still try to laugh and smile imaging how you will react but it hurts Tony to know that you will never reply back .Sleep Brother this journey we need grace to stand still knowing you are resting and God knows best

Hmmmm... Your Biography could easily be mine, except for some key achievement. We practically had the same upbringing, born six months apart and raised as brothers. We were once so close, but drifted apart with time and responsibilities. You were strong headed and I always believed the same time that saw us apart will eventually bring us every closer. But being ever competitive, you beat me once again to the finish line. A marathon we all must complete. Now I miss you more with every stride I take, but I'm consoled with the fact that we shall meet again... and there shall be no more tears. Keep resting my brother, you've earned your stripes, a standard for all men to emulate.

I Love you brother. God's got you now.
Posted by Fiyinfoluwa Ajakaiye on July 12, 2021
Tony, I never got to know you personally, but all I knew about you was sufficient: you made Kyola happy and you treated her like a queen; your queen.
I was so shocked at the news, as everyone else... I only pray that God will keep your beautiful family strong, help them to go on and fulfill your dreams for them and more. I know they will make you proud!
Rest on.
Posted by Innocent Dahel on July 10, 2021
Your demise caught us unexpectedly. You're a promising man and a pure gentleman. You positively impacted our lives and that will stick permanently in our memories. However, we are comforted because your death is a transition to eternal glory. We love you but God loves you more. Rest on Sir...
Posted by Katmun Gomwalk on June 29, 2021
Rest in eternal peace Tony Fakah, you will be greatly missed. You had such a beautiful soul may your family be comforted.
Posted by Obekpa Alex-Adole on June 23, 2021
This is one of the hardest things I have had to do in a very long time. In the past week, I have started and stopped – thrice – trying to write a most befitting tribute to my friend and brother, Anthony. The problem was, I did not want to write a tribute to Tony, no matter how befitting and beautiful it could be. I would have preferred he was alive, here among family and friends he loved and cared about, saying the silliest things and making us laugh our hearts out.
There was nothing more important to Tony than his family. Family meant everything to Tony. This was evident in how Tony carried his wife and kids. They were obviously his priority. Tony made it his life ambition to take his family to the highest height possible. I remember conversations we had where Tony would express how much his family inspired his relentless drive to 'make it'. It was so important to Tony to give his family the best & shield and protect them. Tony did this to a fault. Kyola - his wife was his world. It was so clear and obvious 'e no carry her play'. I'm sure Kyola knew this too. His show of love for her was beautiful to behold.
Tony's dedication to his family was also to his mother and sisters. Tony spoke about his mom and sisters with so much passion you’d feel jealous. I remember Tony telling me he could not relocate just yet when his family was granted permanent residency to Canada in 2019. He was working on a project for his mom and would not leave until it was done. He spoke to me about the space his mom occupied in his life and how important she was. Every time he spoke about Hilda, it was with concern and commitment.
There was never a dull moment with Tony. One of our mutual friends described Tony yesterday as 'the life of the party'. Tony was indeed the life of the party. It was always banter and laughs with him present. Everyone who knew Tony has the same thing to say about him - energetic, full of life, active. Tony was always great company.
His friends would attest to the fact that Tony was a loyal friend. I can't even begin to count the number of people that I have come to know through Tony… everyone of them still in shock at the news of his passing.
Tony was driven and self-motivated. I am yet to see a young man with so much drive and passion to succeed. He would always tell me "we have to keep pushing since we do not know how to beg". Nothing fazed Tony. Nothing deterred him. If it was doable, Tony would face it head on. Little wonder he achieved so much in the short life he lived. I celebrate your successes my friend.
Tony's relocation to Ottawa was one of the highlights of 2019 for me. I now had family very close to me. His friendship meant a lot. I would call Tony when I needed someone to talk, when I needed someone to share a drink or when my wife & I just wanted to have a good laugh. I am happy knowing I was same for him as well.
I will forever remember our family road trips, those interesting nights the four of us hung out downtown, those nights at your house when we'll eat, drink and talk about anything and everything. I still have the recording of when Esther, Kyola & yourself were feeling like artists from the 90s miming Druhill, Montell Jordan, Donnel Jones, Boyz 2 Men at your house.
These memories and more will stay with me forever my brother.
You will be sorely missed Anthony Fakah… as a dutiful son, dedicated brother, loving husband and father, loyal friend. Rest in Power my friend!
Posted by Donatus Lucas on June 21, 2021
You were open.
You were sincere.
You were intelligent.
You were passionate.
You were determined.

You valued your friends and family.
You never backed out of a fight.
You had compassion.
You were an open book.

We will miss you till we meet again
Posted by Tenkwain Sani on June 17, 2021
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.♥️

Sleep Tony ,sleep my brother .
It is well with all mourning your loss
Posted by Aurora M on June 16, 2021
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
Posted by Sam Chundusu on June 16, 2021
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.


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.

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 Gimelen Yamah on June 15, 2021
Oh Alfred.I still can't come to terms that you're no more here on earth,but my consolation is you're resting in a better place watching over your loved surely lived a good life worthy of emulation and your legacy will live on forever! hmmmmm!!!! speechless!rest on a RARE GEM!!!!we miss you ALFRED FAKAH.
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.
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!!!!!

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!

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.

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.

He started his primary school education at Sunshine Private school and graduated from Rantya Model school. He later attended St Joseph’s college (CSJ) Vom and then finished his Secondary school education at Zang Commercial college Plateau state, Nigeria in 1997. He participated in sports, clubs and church bands and was known as an excellent and gifted drummer from a very early age. 
After secondary school, Tony attended Ahmadu Bello University (A.B.U) Zaria, Nigeria,where he earned an undergraduate degree in Physics in 2005. He then proceeded for his National Youth Service in Ondo State. But his continuing education did not stop there.

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. 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 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 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 will always be in my heart.
