Bashiru, you may be gone but your memory will surely live on through your kids and through the many lives you touched. You fought hard and stayed on despite the suffering and pain of the illness. Now you’re finally at peace with no more pain. Rest with the Lord.

Hmmmmm. Bashy, our paths crossed for the first time in 1969 when I joined your school immediately I came to Lagos. We hit it up straight away and remained friends till your last day. Although we attended different schools thereafter, we never missed the opportunity to catch up on old times anytime we met. My consolation is that you loved life and you lived it to the fullest to the benefit of all the people around you. May the good Lord grant you eternal rest. Good nite Ore Mi.

Bashiru Omo Teniola,
We are here to celebrate your life
And the measure of its worth
And every single life you touched
While you were here on this earth.
We wish to pay our last respects.
That’s why we all are here,
To thank you for your friendship
And all the memories we hold dear.
It’s been a privilege to have known you.
We were more like family, not just friends,
And we will carry you in spirit
Until we meet up once again to part no more.

We miss your smile, We miss your laughters. We miss you and that happiness you have always had. Just in one day all those smiles just fadded away, Your warmth and comfort that was always near, Your life and joy seemed to disappear, As you took your last breath to end all the suffering that seems to appear endlessly for several years.

Adios Brother, Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un, May your soul continue to rest in the lord. Amin.

Bashir Alade, Omo Ijesa Modu Aponada, Omo Eleni Ateka, Omo Eleni Ewele, Ijesa O Ridi Isana...., Sleep on
The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to Heaven,
Forever to remain.
Sleep on at the blossom of the Lord.

Quite a wonderful personality, his enthusiasm towards things he enjoyed was always a joy to watch.

Teniola, as I used to call him then, could be animated in trying to talk about a subject he cared about. I can recall some of the gesticulations he was capable of mustering that made him appeared to be bigger than his real frame.

He was a gentleman to the core, refined, unaggressive always looking to deepen friendship rather than breaking one.

I have heard someone remarked that he never saw him get crossed with another person, neither did I, for in him resided a soul that would rather pacify than antagonize, a soul that was always willing to forgive rather than bore grudges

My association with him continued even after we left school for we became reconnected as a part of some friends that I knew around Toyin Street, Ikeja where he lived for some time during the years I spent doing A level.

It was thereafter that we lost touch while following our paths in the pursuit of our education.

What can I say except to pray for the repose of his soul? May we all have the fortitude to bear his loss.

Adieu my friend till we meet again to part no more.

Teniola, I can remember you as a young brilliant student, amiable and bustling with life. I never knew that you will leave this world early. You fought for life, but God knows best. I believe that you are in His bosom. The Lord will grant your children, family, friends and colleagues the fortitude to bear this great loss. Rest on dear colleague.......

*EULOGY OF A GREAT MAN*

With joyful eyes, i watched you smile last Friday 19th of February 2021.

I left you around 5pm only to get a call around 6.30pm that you are no more.

From my inner heart Egbon I deeply appreciate and love you dearly.

But i cannot make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating.

God broke our hearts to prove to us who he is.

He only takes “The BEST”.

Egbon Bash you are one in a million.

My Egbon was humble, kind, loving, caring and good at heart and soul.!!!

I remember like yesterday how I met you through my good friend Adeoti who became your loving wife.

You never failed to give her the best words in situation she faced. 

Come rain, come shine you were there for her, you were a strong pillar of support to my dear friend.

You gave her an honest fatherly advice at all times.

You were a man of valour, a jolly good fellow, a socialite, your sudden death did not come as a rude shock to me. We did
expect it, although i wish we had more time to continue to appreciate you.

God in His infinite wisdom knows best.

May Our Lord comfort and sustain your Siblings, Family and Kids.

May God Almighty keep you safe resting in perfect peace till resurrection day.

Rest in peace Egbon, You were a great man and will be remembered for life.

Mr Akinyemi Omoyeni
Your Brother from Another mother.....

ADIEU Bashir, you were a jolly good friend, trendy, jovial and a fashionista. You fought a good fight of faith to the end and now I believe you are resting in the blossom of your maker,sleep on Bashir and may God perpetual light continue to shine on you .

"Bash Ten", an unforgettable personality. I recall like yesterday the first day we met. I heard you call out "Uncle Tee!" and there I was thinking, 'who is this?' "I am Tunde's friend and now yours!" ...and so my own friendship with you commenced.

I recall you were always immaculately dressed in the trendiest of clothes, very charismatic, kind hearted and generous. We used to visit each other's home very frequently. you were a bona-fide member of our family and vice versa. I recall my mother used to tell me to wait for Bashir and Tunde to turn up before I ate. We had fun times growing up as kids and now you are no longer with us... :-(

Even in the time we spent apart, it was always so easy to pick up from where we left off whenever we reconvened.

Rest in eternal peace, my friend, my brother...

Tai Bambi.

Bashir Teniola we your (ADCIOSA) classmates are going to miss your cheerful smiles and your heart of gold. Your dearest voice that we could not hold and that your beautiful soul in the garden of rest. This world is just a stage where all of us (men and women) are players. Bashir Teniola (Tenifold) may your SOUL rest in peace.

Bashiru Alade Teniola (Bash Ten) as you were also favouritely called. We became close friends in 1973 when we gained admission into Ansar-ud-Deen College Isolo. It was our second week in boarding school, we were both in 'Pako' house, you in Elias and me in Gbaja. We got talking and some seniors were taking the mickey because they thought we were talking too much 'oyinbo', as they called it, from then on we became lifetime friends, all through secondary school, remedial school, college (LACOSTECH} and our personal lives.
In fact we were always in each others houses, that I became a part of your household and you mine, we both knew each others parents and sibbings, each and every single individual in our separate households.
Bashir, you were a live wire, the heart and soul of a party or social gathering, well loved by all who encountered you.
I remember when we became day students after 1976, I used to get the bus from Apapa, where I resided then to your dad's house in Fadeyi, you and Fatai shared a room in the boy's quarters. I'd be there at 7.30am sharp, you'd get ready then we'd walk to Fadeyi bus stop , get the bus to Mushin, then another to Isolo and all the way we will chat in English. It became so common that many passengers and indeed some bus drivers and their conductors recognised us and will pass some cheeky comments like: awon oloyinbo ti de o'.
Why did you have to go so early? I suppose only God, our father in heaven knows why, but there are many who wish you didn't, me inclusive. I shed the tears of pain and sorrow for your loss and pray that God almighty gives you entrance into paradise, keeps you there and rests your humble soul in perfect peace till we meet again and rekindle our long friendship.
Your good deeds might have appeared invisible then, but I can assure you that you have left an unforgettable trail that's been imprinted on all of our hearts.
Adieu my friend, brother and old mate.

Rashid, Tunde Ogunbambi

Bash Ten (Bashir Teniola) as we popularly called you, you have been a friend and a brother. Our paths crossed early in secondary school and it has continued beyond the walls of ADCI even while we were still in school. You were well known in my neighbourhood (by my family and friends) as my bestie. Even after we moved to Ibadan after school cert in 1979, I will from time to time come to Lagos and spend time with you at Ikeja. I can even remember my mum accusing you of teaching me all the bad things I know, but we were just good together. Little did we know that our next stop will be the good ole USA. Our friendship continued there and even blossomed despite living in different states. We eventually returned to Nigeria and kept up the friendship. You were more than a friend Bashir, you were indeed a brother and a jolly good fellow. May the good Lord receive you into His bossom as by His grace you have identified with Him before your final home call. I will surely miss you, but I am comforted with the knowledge that you have gone to rest from the pains on this side of eternity. You are only sleeping my friend, only to be awakened on the last day when we shall meet again, to part no more. I love you my friend, but God loves you more.. Cheers and sleep well!

Bashiru Teniola, a bubbler with so many good virtues. Never a dull moment around you. I remember Our last visit to your place, you were full of fun. Despite your health condition, you were just joking all through. Bashy, lover of life and people. I didn’t know that I wouldn’t make my visiting promise to you in December. You are a friend that can never be forgotten and I believe that Jesus Christ has received with gladness. Rest In Perfect Peace my friend.
Oluwatosin Shodunke.
