Cousin Oriway!!! I cannot believe you are gone.

You came into my life when I was at a tender age just about to finish my secondary education. I met you at the summer school you set up to mentor secondary school children. There was such a striking resemblance between you and my uncle that I boldly walked up to you and asked if you were related to him, to which you answered yes.

You became my big brother, always counselling and offering me advice to prevent me from making wrong choices.

Oriway thank you for being there for me at Aguda with a smile always on your face for me.

May the Lord grant you eternal rest. May God comfort the hearts of those you have left behind.

Adieu big brother. Rest in peace.

Your cousin
Bolaji Olusina (nee Longe)

A rude awakening that life is fragile!! Live well and make a significant impact.
We had the privilege of growing up together as he came to live with us in Aguda in the 80’s. He was one of our big brothers and we so looked up to him. During the summer holidays, he and some of his friends at Ife set up a summer school business to help mentor and coach the youth in preparation for entrance into university and academic success. At an early age, he began to make an impact on the lives of the youth. This summer school venture was very successful and helped to lay the foundation of success for so many young people.
Oriwey would also take us around town and chaperone us to places- phase 2, Paradiso etc.
Oriwey had a presence that lit up any room that he entered into and there was never a dull moment around him: with his captivating smile and witty humor. He enjoyed life and loved helping people . He was bold, confident and not afraid to take risks. Our house at Aguda was full of life with Oriwey around.
He will be sorely missed
May the Lord comfort his wife and children,
May the Lord comfort the entire Oriowo family,
May the Lord comfort the greater Longe- Faloyo Family in Jesus name
May the Lord comfort all the family and friends.
Rest In Peace in the bosom of the father dear Cuz

Dearest cousin Oriway. So so so sad to hear of your passing. What a great loss!

Although you have gone too soon, you will never be forgotten!!!

You will be fondly remembered for your kindness, your sense of humour, your unique laughter and for the wonderful and amazing times that we all spent together at Aguda in the 1980s.

Sleep tight in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ . Sweet Oriway, rest peace. ADIEU!!!

With great sadness in my heart, I write this.... Most of my time with you was when I was a little bit younger so it's kinda vague but I still have some glimpse of what you do... Is it when I fall asleep in your room till the next morning? or when you get back late at night call us for family gathering? Or the joke you tell? No dull moment around Dad I can tell you that.
   When I heard about your death I was so disheartened, Till now I still haven't gotten over it but God knows best... Baba Ben2 till we meet again. Rest in God's Blossom..

Your Nephew,
Dieko2 (Ben2)

I am saddened to hear of his passing. Mr Oriowo was a good friend to my mum since child hood; he was a loving husband and father to his amazing children.
And he was loved and respected by everyone who met him.
May his gentle soul rest in peace

I never met Daddy Oriowo but I got to see the type of joyful person he was on Ayotilewa's status. She used to upload videos of him dancing or doing something joyful. From the little I knew from her statuses, I can conclude that he was not just a father but also a friend to his love ones. They will miss him a lot and status watchers like me will also miss him. One thing i am certain of is that our world has lost a Champion but the heavens have gained an Angel. Rest on Daddy.

I’ve never met Daddy Oriowo in person but I feel like I knew him through Tilewa and most especially Anjola’s WhatsApp status. I admire the fact that he was full of life, always dancing and laughing. It was obvious he genuinely loves his family.
When I saw that he passed on, I was speechless for like a minute one would think I knew him personally.
Daddy you inspired many lives like me that only knew you through social media.
I pray God comfort and give peace to each member of your family to bear this huge loss.

Rest well Daddy Oriowo.
Posted by Chioma Ojukwu on February 17, 2021
Daddy Oriowo I didn’t meet you but knew you from your daughter (Tils) posts about you, you were always dancing or doing some funny.
I saw how you showed loved and always happy and the world would definitely miss that, most especially your family but Heaven needed you back so who are we to question that?

Now you get to dance and sing continually with the Angels of Heaven. I pray God grants your family and loved ones peace even in this trying times.
Posted by samuel Ndu on February 17, 2021
I didn't get to know you but I did get to know your daughter and only a Great man will have been able to raise such an amazing person. May God continue to guide and protect your family in your absence. Rest in peace sir.
Posted by Dotun Akindele on February 17, 2021
I remember the first day I met Daddy Oriowo he said to me you are even my namesake feel at home son.
He was so full of life and there was never a dull moment with him.
He loved to dance.
He is so down to earth and Loved his family deeply...
He has been married for so long years and he still cherish and dances with his wife like it was the first time they are getting married..
I will miss you Daddy Oriowo
You were really and indeed a rare gem
And will never be forgotten It's not easy to tell you bye,There are many unknown reasons,Don't know why? If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again.Heaven is a place nearby, so there’s no need to say goodbye.
REST IN PERFECT PEACE DADDY ORIOWO

A large heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the best.
You were one in a million, kind, loving and generous. I can still see you laughing with your eyes almost closed, thank you for being such a great support for me when I needed it the most.

Farewell dearest uncle.
Bukkie.

It’s so sad to hear you passed on, cos I was thinking of meeting you soon before your brief illness. Anjola told me a lot about you as a dad and how you treated friends and families, She shared a video of you in early December dancing and I told her “ I said I wanna meet your dad cos is so lively and lovable and cos his from Ilesha where I came from lolz.
You live on in the hearts and minds of the loving families you left behind. RIP sir

I remember Anjola always posting her dads videos and Facebook updates,his captions always made laugh,his dance steps and moves always made me smile,he was jovial and funny.She calls him her sugar daddy.
As we say goodbye,we are comforted knowing you are in a much better place and watching out for your family.
Rest In Peace sir

Dear uncle, you would always be an inspiration to me, the entire family and everyone who has met you in one way. Having you as my uncle was one of the best gift God gave me and watching you leave me is so sad. You are so full of life, down to earth, handsome, my second daddy cause you look so much like my dad, you can even remove your eyes for someone. Haba!! What more can I ask for in a uncle, I can't just explain how much I love you and I would continue to Love and remember you. 
  You gave me a very funny nickname and nobody calls me like that except you "WAWANDE" , hmm no one would call me like that again.
  You have left a void in the family that would never be filled. Your death came as a shock to us all. All the same, am happy as you sit in the arms of the Lord. May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace.
Yours sincerely
WAWANDE❤

Hello sir, I am writing this tribute to a great man that you are, I remember the last time I saw you, even through it all you were still laughing and making jokes, you are a true father who loved his children and will do anything for them. knowing you was a blessing and I would have loved to spend more time with you and learn from you but God knows best. I know you have gone on to rest eternally. May your soul rest in peace.
Posted by Chidinma Nnabundo on February 16, 2021
I never met him but I remember seeing him on Anjola's status, always smiling and happy, it's rare to see parents openly show affection to their children, so I'd say he's a rare father. For someone I never knew this hit me bad, the world hasn't enough of your type for you to leave but God knows best. So I pray that as much joy you shared here on earth, you'd have in triple measure where you are, rest in perfect peace ✨
Posted by isioma uwemeh on February 16, 2021
I never met you sir but got to know about you from anjola, your daughter. her posts on WhatsApp about you were always hilarious and pleasant to see and seemed like you were a cheerful man.i am sure you are in a better place because from all the write ups and posts I see,heaven couldn't wait to have you sir.May God give anjola and every member of your family,friends etc to bear this huge loss.
Rest in peace sir

Hello Sir, I know God knows best why this happened. I am a friend to Anjola and I never met you but I know you have so much love for your family. I pray that the Lord grant you rest and give your family the strength, courage and grace to carry on.

Rest in Peace, it's awesome knowing you.

I never met Angy's Dad (that's the way I think of him) but He gave me an image of the Dad I want to be when I grow up. But if you know Anjola, you will know about her Dad, ;how her Dad doted on her, how He cheered her on and how full of life He was. I understand why He will be sorely missed but I also believe He wouldn't want us to mourn too long. Like the life of the party He was, He would want all of us to celebrate the life He had, and focus on living life to the fullest, just like He did! Rest on sir and thank you for being who you were!
Posted by Babajide Ojajune on February 16, 2021
Hello Dad, I know you are up in heaven because the lord told me so. I love you and all you stand to represent. You are a man with one BIG heart and a gentle soul... Your selflessness, caring heart and your compassionate being speaks volume of the kind of man that you are.
These have left memories that cannot be erased in the hearts of many you have crossed path with.
Many still speaks of your kind heartedness till this day.

You are a LION and a HERO!

And the times and moments that I have spent with you will always be a part of me that I will forever treasure because it means a whole lot to me.

I am proud of you Dad!
Your Memories lives on in our hearts!

Adieu Daddy Oriowo

Worlds' best
My first love,
I miss you.
I miss our jokes, plays, and bants especially over Bbnaija (watching it would definitely not be the same again).
I miss the way you dance and make us laugh every night.
I miss frying your favourite kind of egg.
Thank you for giving us the best life, I really wished you waited for us to repay you and spoil you silly. But who am I to query God.
I will continue to hold to sweet memories of you. I lost you but only in body, not in spirit. You forever remain in my heart daddy. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord my love.

Love, Tori A.k.a Cindy lopez

Death is a part of life!!! And once it strikes someone you so dearly love your existence will never be the same. How can I get over a person who has been there since before i was even aware of myself?

What is the measure of a man? Is it the amount of money he has? The possessions he owns and the power he holds? Is it the professional success he’s achieved over the years? I don’t believe it is any of these things...The true measure of a man is how much love he gives; how selflessly he shares whatever he can to help others; how consistently he lifts up those around him with a kind word, a funny joke, a compliment, an humble ear by this measure, my Dad was immeasurable.
I will do my best to remain grateful and comforted knowing how much my beloved Dad positively affected the lives of others, he was the most sincerely altruistic person I have ever known with no attachment to material things, My Dad loved to dance and loved to make people laugh. All he ever wanted to do was make other people feel comfortable and make sure they were not feeling left out, i know it’s because he knew what it was like to feel left out.

MY FATHER Mr (ADEDOTUN AGBOOLA ORIOWO), WAS MY ROLE MODEL AND HERO!! OH HOW I MISS YOU SO MUCH.
YOU WERE A REAL ICON TO THIS WORLD.
YOU IMPACTED MY LIFE WITH YOUR WORDS, PERSEVERANCE AND HUMILITY.
YOU WERE HUMILIATED YET FORGED AHEAD.
YOU WERE DISROBED YET YOU WORKED ONE.
YOU WERE WALKED OUT YET YOU PREACHED FORGIVENESS MORE.
YOU WERE JUDGED YET YOU STOOD TALL.
OH MY FATHER YOU WON THE BATTLE AT LAST, YOU ARE A WINNER, YOU WON DAD.
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY DAD, I WILL FOREVER MISS YOU DAD.
I LOVE AND NEED YOU HERE BUT I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE NEEDED MORE IN HEAVEN.
GOD BE WITH US TILL WE MEET TO PART NO MORE.
YOUR BELOVED DAUGHTER...
Oriowo Oluwadamilola A.K.A Obelele as you fondly call me

My Bubba,
The entire love of my life,
God knows I can never be the same. I love you so much, but I know God loves you More. Please rest my king.
Please Rest. Watching you fight for your life was the toughest thing I had to do. A part of me died with you the day you left.
I will never be the same.
I love you

Your Original❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
