Never in this life time or twenty life times would I have imagined outliving you and even writing a tribute to you. My love, my baby my darling...gone too too soon. If only you can see the pains in the lives of those you left behind you would have chosen to stay. I can't begin to imagine the day you came in to this world, how mine was the first eyes you gazed upon and the very first hands that carried you. Oh ours was love at first sight. A love that remained even better till the day you left us. Oh my son I am broken, I am shattered I don't know how to move on without you. It's a shame I had to be the one to bury you yet I can't help but thank God for the opportunity he gave me to be with a wonderful, beautiful and fun loving soul like you. I will miss you o I will miss you sadly on this side of eternity and beyond..I love you so so much my poor baby..may your path be illuminated into glorious awakening
Rest in peace my son rest in perfect peace Babatunde Majek-Odunowo

Never in my life would I have thought i would be leaving a tribute for babz, words fail me everytime I think of us, you weren’t just a cousin to me you were more than that.you were my partner in crime, my best friend,my brother&my human diary. I miss you Babz,from the littlest random conversations to the fights.
We made jokes about how you were going to squander my bride price together but it’s so sad you left without seeing me get married,or even going for nysc.
Not being able to get tease you like I used to,or talk about the random stupid ideas I have makes me feel so bad. Your death really broke me Babz,I know there can never be another you. Sometimes I wonder how you are doing in the afterlife,i really do miss you blood, the void you left is still unoccupied. I hope I’m able to heal, above all I hope you find tranquility.
I love you Tmaj ,keep resting easy soldier.

his Life

Babatunde Adekunle Majek-Odunowo

Babatunde came to this world around 1pm on the 22nd of November, 1993 at a private hospital in Isolo area of Lagos. Being my parents' first grandchild, he became the cynosure and the love of everyone in my family especially my mother and my sister, Ibironke.

The family promptly named him after my late father who died in 1982, Adekunle Saliadeen Akanni Majekodunmi Odunowo. Babatunde grew up in intense love and care from all members of the family. Each of my siblings had a special nickname for him.

He started Nursery school at Brainstorm Nursery and Primary School, Isolo Lagos in 1995. He completed his primary education at Febilak Schools, Surulere Lagos. He had his secondary education at Kingsland College, Ikorodu (the family moved to Ikorodu in 2004).

Babatunde was a bag of talents and a great cook. He was the only student and the only male that sat for the subject Food and Nutrition the SSCE exam.

He was good with his hands, he was a computer wizard (he got his first computer set at 8 years old), he was an illustrator with great ambitions of being an Animator. He was good in music too and dropped a few singles, one of them is "High School Lyfe". 

He did his OND at Yaba College of Technology, he had to go back to school to sit for Fine Art, a prerequisite subject for his ambition of becoming a class A Animator. 

He was fiercely independent and decided to stay a few years from HND while he pursued his musical career and mining Bitcoin which was just gaining ground then.

Babatunde was blessed with a son, Iremide. Anytime he flashes his smile, tensions go down. He smiled a lot and loved his son, siblings and cousins passionately.

His untimely passing at the age of 27 on that fateful day, 20th of January, 2021 about 8:30 in the morning left a vacuum only God can fill in the hearts of all of us his family members. But we take great solace in God for Iremide whom God gave us through Babatunde to heal us.

It took a toll on me to put this together, but it had to be done. I must appreciate and give sincere thanks to members of my family, class mates, school mates, friends, colleagues and acquaintances for the kind and soothing words, the financial support and prayers showered upon me and my family during our ordeal. 
It's been a month now since my son departed to the hereafter. On behalf of my immediate family, I am deeply and immensely grateful. May none of you have any cause to bury your child in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
Your support and prayers remain a tested and true therapy and I'm glad to announce to you that my family is healing. God has been good, His Word is comforting and something sure to draw strength from. 
Babatunde has gone to rest but he remains with us in the cherished memories and in the little boy he left behind, a true blessing, worthy of unending praises to Almighty God.
Babatunde shares the same birthday with his baby brother, we usually celebrate both of them every November 22nd, this year will be different. Oh God, we pray for strength. 
I believe that after a dark night, a bright morning shall be in the offing. May brightness envelope you all. Amen
Thank you. God bless.

"Daddy, I've tried...", he said in deep pain. I left him for a few minutes and by the time I got back, my son had transited. I wouldn't pray for my enemy to experience the events of that fateful morning of January 20th, 2021. The cold hands of death snatched my firstborn son, Babatunde Adekunle Majek-Odunowo from me. The tears, the pain, the anguish, the regrets, the great sense of loss...Babatunde was just 27 years old. In a lot of ways, he was a lovely child, with that disarming smile of his. My son smiled a lot. He had his ways, he was fiercely independent. He was a bag of talents. He was kind hearted. Now he's gone. Only God can console me and my family, so I'm looking up to Him. How would it have been if you didn't make me a grandfather? In my deep anguish, I thank God profusely for my grandson. Babatunde has gone to rest. We thank God for his son. It is not right for parents to have to bury their children, in my case, I say God knows best. Rest in perfect peace, Babatunde. Only God can dry my tears and console your mother and siblings...
