This tribute was added by Aminat Gbaja on 20th June 2017

"DO!!! So ironic I was just thinking of you the other day, as I happened upon several old pics on my laptop. Smiling, I thought "DO sha! He lived. End of." Your birthday is perhaps the most difficult period to remember you. Fellow happy-go-lucky Gemini.
You would have started since May end; "Mina-Mina! How are we doing our birthdays this year o? Are we escaping town? Are we throwing down? Where? Who? Etc." You'd laugh that hearty laughter of yours and say "anyway, you're up first - I'll follow your lead." LOL! Of course you never did. You did your own thing which you always knew from the jump...
Those pictures I was viewing a few days ago, your 50th birthday. Still leaves lumps in my throat. OMG! The drama leading up to, then I almost missed it with work deadlines etc, you weren't having it. Along with JO, Sis, Uche, et al - we agreed today DO is 50, wo everything can, and will wait. Everything waited! We celebrated DO at 50, silly party caps, balloons, blow outs and all. Like happy, carefree children. Blue and gold everywhere. Can you imagine? Imagine if we had not.
Continue to Rest In Peace, amazing soul. The Lord continue to fill your home with love, protection, mercy, and blessings on blessings on blessings ALWAYS upon Bisi and Ireoluwa. Love you much, my friend and brother."

"Happy birthday D.O.! I bet heaven is having a ball today in your honor just because of the kind of person you are. We also celebrate you here because your memory and legacy live on. We miss you everyday but smile because we know we have a sweet, loving, guardian angel in you. Continue to rest in peace!"

This tribute was added by Tosin Fasoro-Joseph on 20th June 2017

"I would have called by now to tease you about getting old and in your usual manner, you would respond with a loud laugh and then say ''you'll get there too''. There isn't a day that i don't miss you. Continue to rest in peace D.O"

"Deji my man! Today you would have turned 54. We continue to miss you. The pain is tempered by the fact that, as universally acclaimed, you lived a life characterized by selflessness, in which you usually put others before self. You were always there for family and friends.

Continue to rest in peace, my dear friend."

"Dear Sweetheart,

Its now two years since God called you home.....the days have gone by so fast. I can hardly believe Ireoluwa and I have lived the last two years without you. There were very many anxious moments..... sometimes fears on every side but God came through for us every time.

Indeed two are better than one. Ireoluwa has been an amazing companion, reminding me of you so very often and I am truly grateful to God for her.....I tell her all the time that we are a team. I also assure her that you are watching us from heaven and it is now left to us to make you proud in all that we do. Continue in your legacy of giving, giving and giving! Off course to children its more blessed to receive than to give so you can imagine the hard time I am having trying to convince her that its the other way round.

Your memory remains with us as we continue without you. We have enjoyed so much love and support from those whose live you touched....it has been overwhelming sweetheart....truly the world is a better place because you lived......keep shinning keep smiling and rest in peace!"

Your pair of shoe is kind of large for anyone to wear.....It unfortunate you have to leave so soon... i will never forget your impact in my career..... till date and forever.... Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord..."

"D.O.

Its been two long years without you around...I was just remembering yesterday when you summoned me to London from Coventry to spend a day with you.  Oh how I had so much fun that day. Never though I would have so much fun going shopping with you. Let me just say you exposed me to some store I never would have thought of entering such as Russell & Bromley, as against my typical Next or Burton.  Lunch at Wagamama (though I am allergic to sea food) was fun because of the conversation we had...

That conversation made me reflect on a lot of things about myself, which eventually nudged me to the path of settling down...

I want to go on and on about that one visit... but I'll save it to memory still...

Missing you still"

"I'm sure many would comment on how you find time, how you engage, how you always have a smile, how you would always kid - yet be committed and determined........all true. RIP bro"

This tribute was added by Eniola Fatogun on 5th May 2017

"Dear DO,

Just like that, two years flew by........the FINCON team was never the same after you left. It still hurts that I never got to see you that day or that you never got the chance to see me get married after all the talks we had on the issue.
I miss you loads, and I hope you are having a good time up there.

Keep resting ..........."

This tribute was added by Olabisi Omotoso on 6th October 2016

"Sweetheart,

I guess you already know....as you would have seen heaven receive Dapo Olaitan. I could not believe that he would leave us so soon. I hadnt seen him since school resumed to pick up Kofade and his older sister. He will tell you of how we used to meet at Meadow Hall to pick our children after Learning Centre. At those times, he always reminded me of you.....so friendly and easy going. Dotting father whose love for his family was evident.

I was so sad when I learnt of his passing. I never wished that another wife and mother will be left alone to care for her children without the man with whom she had the children.

I cannot imagine how his children will process his passing when I remember Ireoluwa and how she had to deal with such an issue at such tender age.

I trust God will comfort Toju and wrap her under His everlasting arms!"

"You birth date means a lot to me; it is a few days before my dad's birthday and it is also the date I completed my graduate degree. The same degree that you fully supported and encouraged me to pursue. It is definitely a date I will never forget.

DO, you are sorely missed but you will never be forgotten. I know you are smiling down on everyone of us now and I am truly happy because I have yet another guardian angel who is watching over me.

Happy birthday, DO!!! From one of your "nonsense boys""

""While we were mourning the loss of our friend, others were rejoicing to meet him behind the veil."  ~John Taylor
Sadly missed along life's way,
quietly remembered every day...
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, Deji's always there.
The tide recedes but leaves behind
bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops, and yet it echoes
on in sweet refrains.....
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains
Remember,
Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
He says,
Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh
And talk of me as if I were beside you. I loved
You so—‘twas heaven here with you.
Eku iranti

From Kofi Sagoe"

This tribute was added by Bisi Omotoso on 4th May 2016

"Deji,

What can I say......I am still loss of words.
God saw the road was getting rough the hill too hard to climb and so He gently closed your weary eyes and whispered ‘Peace be thine’
It seems so strange that those we need and those we love the best are just the ones God calls away and takes them home to rest.
I never said goodbye dear but that was just as well as I never could have said goodbye to one I loved so well.
I think of you in silence and often speak your name. Never a day do I forget you in my heart.
God alone knows how I miss you and after this first sad year my heart still aches with sadness my secret tears still flow for what it meant to lose you no-one will never know.
A lamb too sweet and pure upon this earth an angel came and took you home.
Sweet are the memories that will never ever fade of the joy you brought to my heart when you came."

"I will not get over the shock of hearing of your sudden passing but accept that you are in a better place. Friends and family did so well at your memorial and that just shows how highly you were loved and respected. I will recall all the laughs we had especially in London in the early days of being here after Uni. I also recall my last laughs with you. Deji how you would joke with me and say “Seye O! From the plane, you called me from the plane!”  I had been to Lagos on a quick visit and had been so busy I had not got round to calling you a promised so I quickly called you just before returning to the UK! I was full flow into the gist and told you I was in town and promised to see you sometime soon. Then the flight captain suddenly announced ‘will you please fasten your seat belt and switch off mobile phones, we are ready for take off”. On no my cover was blown! You said “Seye O! from the plane, you called me from the plane!  It is well O!” How I wish I had seen you, I did not know this was to be the last of our laughs. To think now that we will never see again, or chat even if from the plane! Sleep well my friend, we all miss you. Rest In Perfect Peace (RIPP). Seye Aina"
