"Hmmm! Doyeen, we have come a very, very  long way. I remember every morning you stepped out of your house, your first stop was my house just right beside you, calling Mr D. "se make I call elewa agoyin ni?"  Your genuineness and your loyalty to families and friends was undescribable Doyin.  So much to say about you but i will just keep the memories alive.
I normally call you "doyeen de CP" cos you were a crowd puller, a very generous soul that never said 'NO' to anyone.
I can still remember when you came to visit me in canada,  you cracked everyone's ribs with your funny jokes, even the meat seller is still asking after you. You lighted  up any place you visited, there was never a dull moment with you. I still can't believe you're gone, but who are we to question God?  Never knew seeing you in Ibadan during our visit would be our  last.

I know you're in a better place and I pray that God will protect your daughter and the families you left behind.  You will surely be missed . So long  my friend and brother."

Who could say no to such an amazing fellow.

Doyin you will be missed. I never got round to giving you that visit. The vacuum has now been created in the lives of all you have come into contact with. I pray God to bless your soul as He embraces you with His care. Rest my friend my brother till that time....Adieu !!!"

"Doyenyen, words fail me. How can so much energy, love, happiness, limitless confidence depart from us just like that? You could have lived your life in three different people and they all would be fulfilled.

Babaniyen, you brought so much joy to the world that thinking I will not see you again on earth has left a big vacuum in my heart.

No matter where you are, I am sure they are happier now than they were before you came. Farewell my friend, bye good man."

Doyin, there is not one person who's been in your presence and doesn't remember you. You brought light into any space you entered. Not only did you openly greet new people, you took the time to converse & welcome them. You left people with smiles on their faces. You made the last two Thanksgivings holidays to remember. You will truly be missed. I'm grateful I was able to thank you before your passing. Times I didn't expect anything from... I only wanted to vent. You stood up for me as if you were my blood brother... Referred to me as family. You always thought about me & my future. I'm laughing and crying while writing this because God knows you've went out of your way. I will always appreciate you Doyin. We have Feyi to look at now... You will continue to shine through her.

"It was only 3 weeks on the project, and tou made auch a great impact on everyone that you came in contact with. The first day of work was my first time I recall talking to you, like everyone else heading to Hotel Zaza we had no clue where the bus to the hotwl was. It was funny, and frustratig for a lot of us, but you found humor in it.
I asked you to joing us in the UBER ride, you respectfully declined because you had other folks that weren't sure how they were going to get back to the hotel. (that was nobel)
At the hotel several times we meet in the lobby most of the time we were trying to sort out Naija food, and making sure folks eat and patronized your Naija food hookup.

Men!, on that short period of time, it seems I have known you for a while, I gave you the nickname "Zaza"that both our colleagues remember vividly the way you reply back "Zaazaa"

May your soul rest in perfect peace Doyin Fakoya, Allah knows best."

ADEDOYIN FAKOYA "Mr Happiness" why now? the last time we were meant to see was sometimes in December 2015. was meant  to meet u up at Picasso's place (Onike), but  i got held up somewhere. if i had known it would be my last opportunity to see u, i would have done everything possible to make that happen. Remember the days of playing Nintendo Wii (Tennis) at your place in lekki and other memories..Your humour, your laughter, your passion..... UNFORGETABLE...  As for me, i've got no regret knowing you in this lifetime, and on that note i say Adieu my brother and friend, forever in my heart. TWMA..."

"Doyin, this is a news I found difficult to believe. That you are no more is a rude shock to me. Why now? Why so fast? What a tragic way to leave?. The little time I got to know you, I was able to see how pleasant you were. Honestly, this is cruel for death to take someone like you away so soon. But what can we do than to return all glory to God who knows best why He allowed this to happen. Rest in peace gentle Doyin, and may God grant your family and friends the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Sweet is your memory."

Our last conversation was on your wedding day there in Ibadan, you said in Yoruba "Iwo o fe se bata fun mi" and I was like it's not like that, and we were gonna discuss business afterwards, somehow we missed each other in the whole fun because it was your day.
Another time I remember when as a kid you did tricks with your fingers, you were very full of life.

Heaven will be happy to have you.
Continue to rest in the bosom of the lord."

Our meeting was untimely short but sweet.. You were such a funny and bubbly character. I'm so glad I got the chance to meet you & see for myself the guy everyone speaks so highly of & has so many pleasant and positive things to say.
Me & George we're only just talking about you the other evening, he was telling me a story & we could not stop laughing.
This is such tragic and heartbreaking news & still doesn't feel real. Everyone just wants to know why. We have to trust in God that he knows best, as always.
I will try with all I can to keep the family strong & celebrating your life, sharing many more stories of you with laughter.

Rest in perfect peace

In september of 2014 I took a road trip across 7 states of America, you hosted me in Philadelphia and took me to all iconic places. You spent time and money. You are a selfless human being. Even though I got to know you through my junior brother you were like my own personal friend. I still saw you in Lagos in November 2014 and we reminisced on the US trip and promised to do it again. You got married in December 12th 2015 in Lagos and I wished you well. Exactly 3 months after your wedding Sunday March 12th 2016. The cold hand of death snatched you from us all the way in Houston Texas after a road accident.  Adedoyin Olayiwola Fakoya. (African body scratcher) You will be missed greatly. I still wake up thinking it was a dream. Your humility and smile is so infectious. Hmmmmmmm who will tell your little daughter?  I wish it was a rude joke mehnnnn. Rest on Bro, Visiting America won't ever be the same for me anymore. RIP my dear friend."

Gracious passing, why have you taken him at this young age with promising future?! In a moment like this we cannot but always remember you for being a good friend, brother and colleague of all,even though you left us so soon and ignore all dreams, aspirations and hope for the future we believed that you have gone to a place of rest where you will be free from all challenges of lives. Doyin we love you, but God loves you more than we do....May your soul rest in perfect peace..adieu! adieu!! adieu!!!."

"Doyin, you were a vibrant and friendly guy. We met when you had just relocated, at a function in center city, we gisted and laughed. Overtime, we would meet at events, you were a great conversationalist, respectful, open and humble.

Words cannot describe this loss.
You will be greatly missed.
May God comfort your Daughter, Wife, Family and Friends."

"Courage has failed me to let go that you Adedoyin aka Yenyenhow, my bestest friend would only be remembered in our thoughts alone, henceforth! I kept doing silly things like calling your phone, sending sms, hoping you could just come up with your humour again like "olori awo ni gbogbo won, I prank dem and dem gurk am", but no, reality is not making a response come from u. Your voice just kept ringing in my head! I kept singing 1 of ur favorite songs, "I make big money, I drive big car, everybody knows me I'm like a moving star". Even my family are still in great shock, some remember you just because of your usual kindness to them, especially while at Ikoyi immigrations, others remembered u because you were the best friend they all knew I had. We had our terrible times that lasted a while, but thank God for his intervention. I will forever miss you and your true friendship. You live on for ever in my heart! Sunre oo Adedoyin Olaiwola Tikarare Fakoya, till we meet to part no more."

I can't believe it..still tried calling you on WhatsApp.
You were a big brother,  friend and relationship coach.. you would listen to me and even tease me..
Your laughter and the happiness you always radiate is incomparable.
You were so open even about your personal life and I could talk to you about everything.
I really am glad I met you and pray your soul finds peace with God.
Rest on my brother."
