Why is death so rude?! I literally froze when I saw the post of chiazor's passing on a friend's WhatsApp. Gosh! A beautiful free spirited soul that I met in secondary school has been called home.

May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace and I pray that God would give everyone dear to you the fortitude to bear the loss.

My darling Sister and Friend Chiazor, you would be sorely missed.
Thank you for being a part of my childhood and for the chance to be loved like a sister. I will forever cherish the memories made with you and will remember how pivotal you were to my career decisions in life.
Since you’ve passed, I randomly mutter under my breath “Chiazor, I miss you and I love you”.
Till we meet to part no more, rest easy Chichi❤️

This is the most shocking news I've got recently... Awwwww!!!!!

Chiazor, U were a sweet colleague.. I remembered my first day at work, all the gist on that day was as if we knew each other before. You created a lovable environment for everyone. You were selfless, always ready to help.

I wished I checked on you earlier this week when you came to my mind, I really wished i did.... Its still shocking to me, but i take solace in the fact that you are resting, In a better place.

I pray for God to comfort your husband, your parents, siblings and Family.

Rest On Melanin babe..

My ChiHAIRXOTICA! Azor Baby! Chizzy!

It still feels like a dream. I have called your number a gazillion times and sent you text messages hoping to get a reply to see how we can work around making you feel better.

Chiazor, I can't, I am not sure I will recover from this shock.
I will miss you so much. Your big bear hugs, your smile, and oh that your silly laughter!

This wasn't how we planned it, babes. I am tempted to ask God why, why Chiazor?

You mastered the skill of a business early and became a pro at it, built your empire, and made it blossom into a local and international brand.

Your counsel is second to none. This hurts so bad.
You are irreplaceable and you will be missed so much.

May the angels lead you home and may heaven pamper you with so much love and peace.

I love you my darling and will miss you,
Posted by Detutu Ajibodu on March 18, 2021
Rest in Peace Chiazor,
We love you, but God loves you even much more.

Rest in His presence.

Posted by Olajumoke Ogun on March 18, 2021
Chi Chi...Been in a state of shock since I heard you passed. There's just so much memories with you. I remember how we all wouldn't pay for school bus so we can walk home and gist and how we spent Saturday's in your house watching one tree hill series. You always sat Infront of me in class and that was your sit till we graduated. You inspired me to do well academically and you were so full of life. I'm sorry I didn't keep in touch beyond instagram posts and commenting in the last few years gone by but I was always glad to see you were doing well. Rest on my dear friend.
Posted by Kanayo Okafor on March 18, 2021
Chi, “Melinfonwu” that’s how I liked to call you back in school. you are such a sweet person. Still don’t understand why the best people are being taken away from us. You were so perfect , the way you do your things. Drama free... I remember how you were in uni... myself and Anita were older but we still looked at you like the wise one,we were mindful of you because you don’t take nonsense.Very principled and I admired that about you. I don’t know why this had to happen , but it really got to me real bad. My only consolation is that you are in a better place , better than where we are... without any pain or hurt. You will always and forever be in my Heart baby girl❤️ Sleep well till we meet again.

My Azor....
In Junior secondary school, we were classmates and eventually sisters. We integrated seamlessly into each other's family. I only had to tell my parents "I'm in Chiazor's house" and their mind will be at rest.
You were the model child whom every parent wanted their child to be like. Respectful, Amiable, Accommodating and fun.
I remember, Azor. Our Saturdays at Ikoyi club for swimming sessions and how we'd play Mariah Carey's "Emancipation of Mimi" album through the drive from Surulere to Ikoyi and buy Suya to take home afterwards. You shared your siblings with me. You shared your parents with me. Your beautiful clothes, anything Azuka gave you was automatically for you and I.
My childhood, teenagehood and adulthood was beautiful with you in it. You were my counselor, comforter, listening ear, my sister.. Ah Azor!!!
We became adults, got married the same period, shared advises on how to go on in life. You were my best and only hair plug. You'll tease me that I don't know how to maintain hair. I'd always come and dump it for you to revamp.
In the ending days, you fought a good fight, brave as always.
I will always love you, my sweet sweet sister. You live in my memories now. This is heaven's gain and I know you're in a much better place now, boo.. May God comfort Maka, mummy, daddy, Azuka, Nwachukwu and the rest of us..
Sleep easy, my dearest...

Posted by Adenike Alade on March 18, 2021
Chiazorrr!!! I’m still in shock... all I can think of is the memories together in high school. How we would trek home from school gisting, our Saturday visits to each other’s houses, the random wakas we had soooo many memories. I’m sorry I never fulfilled the promise of seeing you whenever I was in town or in surulere I’m sorry I would just assume you were very okay because I always saw your ig updates. azor the full time hustler! Always in our faces on ig. Your beautiful face I continue to see in my head. I have alot to say yet I’m short of words. Rest easy chi baby, your memory lives on♥️

My chocolate drop as I fondly called you, it has been a shocking few days. You played a big role in my life back in 2010 and I’m forever grateful to you for being there for me. I’ll never forget you and all you were about. The world definitely lost a good soul. Rest well ❤️
Posted by Tobi Imohimi Osifuye on March 18, 2021
Quelle Tristesse!!

Always had a smile on, ever gregarious and I never for once saw you not smile.
Even from a distance, you radiated joy and calm and I always got that vibe for as long as I can remember.

Even in my dreams I wouldn't be able to imagine how much love those who had the opportunity of a lifetime to get so close to you everyday will feel.

Keep smiling as you bask in the sun and dance to the tunes of the angels in heaven.

Sleep well
Posted by Bukola Sowale on March 18, 2021
To think of Chiazor is to think of a strong person, she was totally loyal to her friends and she had a kind heart. Words fail me! Can't believe I am referring to her in past tense! May God rest your soul Chiazor! Heavens gained an Angel!
Posted by Olawale Onasanya on March 18, 2021
A beautiful soul in and out, very glad I knew you as my friend's wife, a friend, sister,business partner which made us communicate often. You're now an angel dear chizzy. Rest on!
Posted by Louisa Cadi on March 18, 2021
My twin. I have no words. We meant so much to each other. The sisterhood we shared. I can't believe you won't be here anymore. You helped me at the toughest stage in my life at such a vulnerable age, you took it upon yourself to get me out of that phase and you, you alone succeeded. I am forever grateful to you for that. Now you won't be here anymore and I don't know how to take it. You will forever be loved and missed by us all. Me especially. Oh azor. My heart is in shambles but I pray for eternal rest for you both. Say hello to momma for me. She loved you so. I will always love you twin ❤️

Posted by Oluwaseyi Ibikunle on March 18, 2021
This sad news hit me really bad because I was just watching clips I made from your wedding in 2017 the day before and had made a mental note to check up on you over this weekend.

I met Chiazor during service year in Lagos and she was my guardian angel at our PPA.
Stood up for me so many times that I lost count.
Asides that, she made my first real job fun; the gists, movie recommendations, office breaks (we trying out different boli sellers near the office just to find the perfect one) and so much more.

Thank you for touching my life and many others in a beautiful. I will miss you.

I pray the good Lord comfort your family and all those you left behind.

Chiazor dear, words fail me. I had to dig into the scriptures and ask questions on why good people die and bad people get to live long? It doesn't make sense but it sure happens.

I remember our days of waka waka. When I heard this news, I kept praying it was all a dream and very soon I would hear "it isn't the same Chiazor" .

I am glad that the life you lived was well spent. You knew what you wanted and went for it. Young yet so mature. You truly were an angel on earth.

I know you are looking down on us and saying "if only these people knew where I am now is a better place than the earth".

My prayer is that God will console everyone. Mummy, Daddy, Hubby, Your Sister, Brother, family and friends.
Posted by Karen Ogah on March 18, 2021
Chiazor... Enterprising, Amiable, Hospitable, Beautiful! These are the qualities I admired about you and that's how I want to remember you. When I saw you last week, I honestly thought this will turn out differently, I never anticipated this rude shock but I guess God knows best. I pray for God's comfort for your entire family and friends. Rest in Peace Beautiful!

Chiazor was my best friends childhood bestfriend. Her talks about you made me love your person, and meeting you in person made it it even better. You were just like an angel on earth. It really hurts to say goodbye this way. May God give your family and loved ones the strength to bear this great loss.

Heaven just gained an angel
Rest In Peace Chi

How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of Chiazor her selfless generosity, uncompromising belief in all that is good and her unwavering commitment to family and friends?Words, even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling today. I felt it so hard but God knows the best. Rest In Peace Angel..
Posted by Anuli Iro on March 18, 2021
Chiazor!!! The Hairboss as I fondly called you.
I can't believe that I am typing a tribute...Hmmmm.

I have not been able to express myself via words since I heard about your demise on the 16th especially as it was my birthday. I felt a rush of sad emotions knowing that whilst I was celebrating, my friend struggled for her life.....I am cut deep, really deep.

You didn't live a life of a 27 year old, you were wise, enterprising, accomodating and loving. We will surely miss you. Who will give me tips on hair care? I will miss our salon gists...

May God comfort your entire family, friends, staff and loved ones. It is only Him who can heal this wound.

Your memories/legacies will never be forgotten

We can’t question God but there was and is a lot running through my head - the moment I heard about this devastating news. I type this in tears because it didn’t have to be U! Not that anyone deserves to die but more of your sweet, matured, selfless soul should very much be on earth. This is sad, this is sad....God, this is very sad! I refused to believe this- I was praying that somehow you come back to life. But God knows best on why he allowed it this way. Chiazor, I will sign off and be happy knowing you are in a better place and pray that God’s heavenly host guide u in peace. Rest on!
Posted by Funke Johnson on March 18, 2021
So shocked to hear this terrible news. You were a beautiful and kind soul. May Jehovah remember all your good deeds and grant you everlasting life in His kingdom. May 'the God of all comforts' comfort your loved ones and support them through this storm. You will live on in our hearts.

Hmmm.....Life! I read the news with shock.....and all I could say or mutter was , Chiazor, ah, Chiazor??? You were so lively, so bubbly and always full of smiles for everyone who came around you. You must have had many dreams and aspirations. Were they all accomplished? Ha...only God in heaven knows why this happened.
I pray that the Lord will comfort your entire family and give them Grace and strength to pull through this time.
Hmmmmm.....May your soul find eternal rest with God, amen.

A woman with a sweet soul that’s how I would describe you, one of the people I don’t joke with in this life. I am In so much pain writing this, I am still finding it hard to believe you are gone, You were not just my friend you were my pool of knowledge in the hair industry, who was always willing to share anytime we spent time together, you inspired me, you gingered me to have my own shop, you made me take my business seriously, you taught me aggressive marketing, I really looked up to you, you always wanted the best for me. Who would I turn to now??? Oh my God!!!
Every time I spent with you was very valuable to me and I appreciate you for impacting my life, you would never ever be forgotten as you played one of a major role in my life.

Thank you for being a good friend, thank you for being patient with me even when I was bothering you, thank you for consoling me when I was dealing with the loss of my father you really encouraged me, I have so much to say on how good you were to me and people around you.

I Believe God knows best and you are resting in his bosom, I would definitely miss you. God be with you till we meet again my dear friend.

This is shocking....very shocking. I want to say hopefully you are in a better place but I’m pretty sure your loved ones would prefer you were here with them on earth. God knows best but this hurts. Rest well Chiazor! Your free and generous spirit would never be forgotten.
Posted by Benardette Souza on March 18, 2021
I have asked myself severally since you passed if God really exists! And if he does, what was he doing while a good person as you passed?

It's lent and I am so angry I can't even pray! Why do the good ones leave the stage earliest?

I console myself with one thing “You led an impactful life “ you had the wisdom of an aged matured woman, you never acted your age, you were wise, intelligent, VERY CARING To the core!

I will remember you as someone who would go to any length to see people you love happy!

So we won't be shooting our much anticipated ‘Hairpreneur’ segment? You mean no Benny calm down for me? Who will hype me? No more free hype woman?

Chiazor, thank you for all you did to make me smile, thank you for staying with me when dad passed , thanks for wiping the tears and talking me through every struggle! Thanks for trusting me like your blood sister, if you see my parents, you won need to introduce yourself, they are angels just as you! They know I had a friend called Chizzy.

Thank you for always taking out time to watch my shows before I posted them, thank you for being a honest reviewer. Thank you for always ancipitating while screaming ‘Gist me biko’.

Lastly , if truly the ones that have passed can still see, don't forget the ones you left behind.

“No sleeping on the bicycle”

Rest on, my unilag correct ‘borgee’ babe.

Your death came as a huge shock to me, when Flikkyhairs gave me the sad news. We both cried endlessly over the phone.

Though I was never opportune to meet you in person aside few phone conversations and IG messages that we exchanged.

You’re indeed a wonderful person and you will forever be in my heart. You made a huge impact during your time on earth and your footprints will continue to live on dear chi.

Continue to Rest In Peace.

It’s so hard to still believe you are gone. You are such a vibrant, outspoken, intelligent and among all have a good heart. The little time I came in contact with you in NSIA Insurance Limited where we worked as a colleague & friends you always the first to apologies even when i don’t mean the words I say to you. Your simplicity is just out of this world. Sometimes I ask God why the good have to go but he would created us has the time he calls us back home. Despite we don’t speak often your NSIA memories still linger. Tears falling free from my eyes as i am writing this. My God give your love ones that you left behind the fortitude to bear the loss. May your soul Chiazor Michelle Obiora and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace Amen.

My one and only "tister"...

I miss you so much it hurts...You were 8 years younger but no one ever believed when we told them because of how close we were and how we had alot of the same clothes. Sometimes, they called us twins and we would just laugh.

Chiazor, the pain is inexplicable...You didn't deserve to go this way. Mommy, Daddy, Kaira, Kosi, Nwachukwu & I miss you sorely.

Please remember what we discussed...I trust you sha!

Till we meet again to part no more, I love you so much and will always love you forever.

Dear Chiazor...words truly can’t describe the shock I felt on hearing the news of your demise. It felt and still feels so surreal, the tears came flowing freely.

However, I choose to remember you for the kind and cheerful person that you were.

Never in the about 12yrs of knowing you can I picture a moment of you being horrendous. You had such a sweet, gentleness about you.

You remain my friend always and forever. Rest easy my dear friend, till we meet again at the bosom of the Lord.
