The news of Junior’s death has been a hard pill to swallow. Junior’s Infectious smile would light up any room, he was always the life & soul of any party. When my husbands 50th was approaching last year Olu kept asking ‘What are we doing’, he would say ‘We have to celebrate it’ ‘call me and let’s discuss’ - Yinka I think you will remember this, you said ‘don’t mind Olu’. On another occasion we all attended a party close to our home in Romford, the party finished too early for Junior (stubborn rocker), so he invited a few friends to our house for the ‘after party’, a spur of the moment decision but demonstrating Olu’s love for people and enjoying life to the max. It is evident that Junior loved bringing people together. I’ve known Junior almost as long as I have known my husband (Ayo Fisayo). Junior was very much around in our early courting days, some 30 years ago. I have always known Junior to be one of the ‘way back’ ‘C&S’ original crew, along with a few others on this forum whom my husband always enjoys being around. Romans 14:8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted… “ (Jesus’ words) Take solace in the fact that: Heaven’s Now Junior’s Home https://youtu.be/rdUY_iVmhVI

It is sad to see you go too soon, you were gone before we knew it only God knew why. Even though you are no more, your memories shall live forever. May your soul rest in peace. I pray that God grant the family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss

Posted by David Thomas on 10th March 2019 It was an honor and privilege for me to have met Olu over 30 years ago and to have hung out with him several times. Always a great guy with so much fun and smile. Never saw him angry or annoyed. I am still struggling with his passing and especially to the fact that I spoke to him last Sunday , where Olu was telling me off for not coming to his 50th and I spent a greater part of that short Telephone conversation apologising to him. I believe Olu accepted my apology so I am at peace with that. Eruke, Alex and the kids, may God grant you the strength to deal with your loss. It is well. To my Great friend, Forever in our hearts.

Olu, words fail me. Thank God for the beautiful life you lived. My last conversation with you face2face was at Chief’s 60th with Yinka Durodola, you told me how proud you were of my achievements and I must ensure to invite you to any events I was organising, I guess it was never meant to be. Sleep well my brother, I pray God grants you eternal rest and your family, mum and siblings the fortitude to bear the loss. Heaven has gained an angel.

Devastatingly Shocking and unbelievable! Jnr, I can’t believe you’re gone! My dear friend from teenage - in the 80s! My dance partner in those days; the ladies heartbreaker, charming and irresistible! That smile, that cheekiness, that display of being ‘Mr Cool’! Despite being in my 50s, and not seeing you in decades (except for the one time we bumped into each other a couple of years ago) I still sometimes have flash memories of all our escapades!! You will be missed. And judging by what I’ve read here, you will be missed by so many! God can’t be questioned. He gives and he takes. I pray that your dear family be Divinely comforted and that may your sweet and gentle soul rest in perfect peace!!

Olu you have left a huge hole in the hearts and minds of many. Your passing has not only shocked us but united us all in grief. That unforgettable smile, gentlemanly manner, love of family, charm and zest for life will always be remembered. Rest in Eternal Peace. In Jesus name Amen.
Posted by Prince Ogunmokun on 10th March 2019
May your gentle soul rest in peace. Even though , you left far too soon, we cannot question God as he knows better. May the almighty God strengthen the family you left behind in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Good night Bro.

I found out about your passing this morning and I didn't want to believe it. I phoned a close friend and my worst fears were confirmed. This is so painful; I don't understand why the kind warm and friendly people die young. God knows best. All I have of you Olu is fond memories. Although we hadn't seen each other for donkey years, since Sunday School days, when we hooked up again last year, you were so warm and friendly and very encouraging in personal issues we discussed. I can't forget your smile and reassuring words. Rest in peace Olu Adeniyan.
Posted by ONYEKA ODUM on 9th March 2019
Still surprised and sad at this news. Does this mean you won't be around anymore to give me my usual hug and peck whenever you're at the airport? Rest in peace Olu.

Sleep well my brother Olu,  A chap in whom i was very pleased, right from when we were young, growing up in the 70's. He had this infectious & friendly smiles. One thing I did appreciate was that respect & regard he showed towards me, his demeanour suggested an aburo deferring to an egbon. I reciprocated with mutual respect & genuine love as a freind and an aburo I liked very much. Olu, became a MAN by marrying, fathering and nuturing children much earlier than his contemporaries, including me that is 3.5 years his senior.  I ran into him after many years in the company of Kunle Odumosu in 2015 or 2016 at the Lafric Resataurant, Victoria Island, Lagos, when he came to make arrangements for his dad's burial. We spoke on a number of times over the phone, when he shared concerns over slight disaggrements with his half siblings over plans for his late dad's burial.  I was glad to offer 1 or 2 advice, on the power of persuasion by listening & accommodating other people's views, whilst you get things done, how you want it, rancour free. Most importantly, humility (conceed sometimes without thinking that you have lost out) I think that he was appreciative because he thanked me. Olu, was my brother's (Kola Oni) greatest buddy....perhaps because they share a common streak of STRONG HEAD. Lol!! He would be remembered for his LEGACY (his children) and his good deeds. I pray that his lovely immediate & extended family have the strength to bear this painful exit of a youngman. Sun re o. Amen.  Kehinde ADEYEMI Oni

Indeed so devastated to hear the sad sad news of Junior’s death..... still can’t comprehend it all yet. Such a remarkable and admirable fellow I have always respected from childhood. May God receive him well. I pray such premature sudden loss of life never be our portion henceforth. My heartfelt condolences goes out to his family and may the Lord give us all the fortitude to bare this huge huge loss. Rest in peace. Junior.

Utter shock and disbelief to hear of your passing. I have fond memories of you in the early days in London. Always smiling, considerate and never shy at being frank when the occasion calls for it. While I know there is an appointed time for every event under heaven (Ecc3:1), words cannot express the pain your loved ones are feeling at this moment. I pray that God’s peace that passes all understanding comfort them at this time IJN. Rest In Peace Olu Dotun Oyemakinde

It was utter shock and disbelief when I heard this morning of Olu's passing, my deepest sympathies go out to Olu's family, apart from being friends at church, Olu and I were also classmates at St Finbarr's College Akoka, a lot of people call him Olu or Junior, but in school, he is always referred to as Ifeolu. To think that I am writing this tribute is beyond comprehension, I pray that the almighty God grants his entire family the fortitude to bear this huge loss, and that he continues to comfort everyone left behind at this very difficult time, RIP my brother and friend.

I am really sorry to hear the about the loss of a lovely geniune person Olu. We met at work on a busy project and Olu was always helpful, friendly and a hands on engineer. Always smiling and greeting everyone with a good morning. I pray for Olu's family through this difficult time and may he rest in peace.
Posted by Adeyinka Bankole on 7th March 2019
Wow... Can’t believe am here again. Ifeolu, you know life is funny. Never knew we had so much friends in common. We went to the same Secondary school. We grew up in the same area, we met again in London in the 80s. Our paths hardly crossed, but on few occasions that i saw you.... One thing that never changed was your smile. What can i say about you, i called few friends from Secondary school and they all said the same thing. Your Smile . I saw some recent pictures of your’s and you still had the same smile. My heart bleeds for your mom ( Am talking from experience). Oh God, can’t imagine the pain she’s going through, am trusting God to strengthen and heal her completely. I pray for your wife, children, family and friends. May the Lord grant you Eternal Peace Ifeolu. Till we meet to path no more... Sun re o.
Posted by Ade Niyi Tella on 7th March 2019
My brother, we are all sad to see you leave us so soon. Your tributes show how you touched so many...the common theme is your generous spirit, gentle soul and infectious smile. I know you are smiling down from heaven. You will be sorely missed...Sun re O!
Posted by Tokunbo Vincent on 7th March 2019
Olu why did you have to go so soon. It was only 5 weeks ago that you, Kola Babayemi and I were on the same flight coming back to London. We were our usual self drinking, gisting and reminiscing about the Ayo ni o olden days back in Iwaya, Aguda and Friday ‘s bar beach service. To say I am lost for words is an understatement, we even talked about royalties in our home state (Ondo) iku se kaa - iku do ro. Hmmm never gonna see you and your infectious smile again. Rest in perfect peace Olu.
Posted by Dotun Adepegba on 7th March 2019
Very sad to hear about your passing. Shock and disbelieve. Rest in Peace. Amen
Posted by GBENGA AKINSETE on 7th March 2019
... sometimes it seems life is a trick after all! ...still can't comprehend how or why you left so soon; you were different, ageless, energetic, passionate, full of life and Iove; you will be greatly missed; above all, GOD knows best and loves you most; rest in his bosom Big bro.
Posted by Doyin Oluojyn on 7th March 2019
I pray for inner strength, comfort for the family Olu left behind. Accept my heartfelt condolence. I was shocked to hear about your passing, you were such a gentleman full of life, full of smile, full of love for everyone, i remember taking your pictures for your 50th, I could see your love for the family. Rest in Peace Olu!
Posted by Beeloye Esho on 6th March 2019
Who are we to question God? Still a very rude shock to me. Still remembered, saw you in Naija last year. Hmnn!!! but God knows best. I pray that God should uphold the family you left behind especially Granma, Sis Bola & Sis Tokunbo. I ask for divine protection over all your children and wife. Rest on brotherly...Uncle Olu
Posted by Siji AWOYINKA on 6th March 2019
Alas Jnr! We hadn't been in touch for years but the memories I have of you remain warm, pleasant and comfort my soul. Your smile and easy manner lit up whatever space you occupied. Eternally rest in power brother. My condolences and prayers to your family and loved ones.
Posted by Tony Bawallah on 6th March 2019
Please accept my condolence of your great loss, words cannot describe the pain you are going through as a family. Olu, was a great friend that brought great joy, laughter, and wisdom, always spoke highly of family, the children doing well at school, University, and Work. We were only together 5 weeks ago in Lagos Nigeria and met up again briefly at Heathrow Airport just 10 days ago. Olu, was the best of us Tunde Bawallah

*A TRIBUTE TO A BROTHER & A FRIEND*. The news of your loss hit me like a drug, as I was about to sleep yet it kept me awake all night, THINKING!!! Just a day before we deliberated on how best to fix your vehicle which was brought to my office for repairs. Little did I know that right then would be our last discussion on Earth. Selah Of course, we were both clueless of the future and what God had in store for us! So, as usual I ended up searching for solace within the Bible and I stumbled upon Ecclesiastes Chapter 7. V1-25. “Sorrow is even better than laughter, because when our faces are sad, our hearts become good”. What good could come out of the death of a friend and a brother from one of my loving Mums? God knows best and he is unquestionable !!! Olu Junior, you’re a true gem and your memory lives within each and everyone of us as we continue with the battle called LIFE. We needn’t tread too far to see or hear how golden your heart was, as the various tributes of friends and family here and beyond, speaks volumes in itself. Rest well my brother as you will be sorely missed, but more solace comes knowing the Lord will keep you as he saw your golden heart more than we did. Till we meet again, as Ecclesiastes 7-v2 says, “because everyone must die, and the living needs to remember this”. I pray none of us dies before our time and wish us all long life and prosperity also in great health - this I ask in Jesus mighty name. Amen May the Lord continue to strengthen Mummy, Sis Bola, Tokunbo, Alexis, Eruke, Jordan, Savannah, Sahara, Alexander & all well wishers too. ONE LOVE.... Dapo ILUGBO

Olu Jr, I consider it to have been a privilege to have meant with you, last January here in Lagos, yes brief it was but within that short time, I knew you were a kind brother friend Gentleman, Olu Jr may your soul forever rest in perfect peace and May God give your loved ones the fortitude to bear a Great lost.
Posted by Dimeji Lanlehin on 6th March 2019
Cutting through the pain and sadness of your sudden loss is the memory of your constant smile. You lived a full life and your infectious spirit touched many. You were so happy on your 50th birthday surrounded by your family and friends and so my last memory of you is one of a broad smile, rest well and keep smiling. I pray for succour & strength for the family, may the Almighty comfort you
Posted by Abdul Tola Momoh on 6th March 2019
Olu, the last time I saw you we talked about everything F1 with the boys over a bowl of Abula, and our kids graduating Uni and how proud you were at your daughter’s graduation. Forever smiling and ever so kind. May you continue to rest in peace and may The Almighty give your family the strength to bear this loss.
Posted by Omololu Lanlehin on 6th March 2019
I can't believe you are gone. Still trying to come to terms with it. I am lost for word's. Olu I will miss your smile, humour and gentle nature. Our friendship has spanned over 40 years. My prayers are with the entire family. May the grace of the Lord be upon us all. Adios my friend till we meet again.
Posted by Amanda Okosi on 6th March 2019
Ahhh Junior. To say I am in shock, is an understatement. Such a wonderful person, you were always smiling, joking, such a fun person to be around. Our friendship spans well over 25yrs. You were there at my mum's funeral in November last year. That would be the last time we would see. My friend and brother Rest in Peace.
Posted by Niyi Taiwo on 6th March 2019
Rest in peace buddy. You always came across as a genuine guy and always wore that broad smile. Rest on buddy, God's blessings and protection on the family you have left behind. Rest on our F1 buddy. NT

Still can’t believe your gone, I will treasure the laughs and wine we drank together. I cried yesterday but I know your in a happy place now. May God give your family strength in this difficult times. Goodnight olu.

I will miss you my dear brother and friend..i will always cherish the moments we shared during the POL project...i Remember how you always advise me on how to raise my boys...Rest in peace Olu...U will be missed. I pray the almighty God help your family on this sad moment.
Posted by Ayo Ayinde on 6th March 2019
Jordan, this is such devastating news. Your Dad was a very very good man and will be sorely missed. He was full of life and I still find it hard to believe he's no longer with us. Sahara, I saw him last Friday and on Sunday when he informed me he had just returned from seeing you as he had to help you move to a new address. And that's another thing Olu was very good at. He was always ready to offer his time in helping others. He really was a kind hearted person. May his sweet soul rest in perfect peace. Simply put, Olu was just an awesome & wonderful person to around with and will never be forgotten. I pray for God's comfort and strength over his entire family and friends. May God continue to guide, protect and be with us all, Amen.

Why? We do not know. You are a lost Treasure on earth, but gained in Heaven. You will be missed by Families and Friends. May your gentle Soul rest in perfect peace. May God grant the entire families and friends the fortitude to bear this huge loss in the Precious Name of our LORD Jesus Christ. Amen.

Farewell to an affable and pleasant soul, gone too soon! Rest well, buddy, and my only consolation will be that you have gone to enrich that eternal plane where we all desire to go when we leave this world. Adieu my friend and may you flourish in everlasting peace.
Posted by Olayinka Durodola on 5th March 2019
I am missing so much MY GREAT FRIEND & BROTHER. I am not sure where to start or what to say about you leaving us too soon. You have been a vital COG in our friendship and brotherhood and this cannot be replaced. It is impossible to forget all the memories you and I have shared together and I THANK the LORD for all that he has established in your life. The Blessings that the Lord has flourished into your Wife (Alexis); your Children (Jordan; Savannah; Sahara & Alexander) will continue bloom IJN (Amen). I am missing you already my F1 buddy

Posted by Rita Oye on 5th March 2019
Olu had I known your birthday party would be the last time I'd see you, I would have stayed longer; danced longer with you when you pulled me on the dance floor; laughed louder. This is too much pain your passing. Rest in perfect peace. We love you and will forever miss you.
Posted by Jude Ikeji on 5th March 2019
Baba! So it actually happened??????This is way too much to comprehend!!! I am lost in my thoughts!!!!! Rest on brotherly.
Posted by Buchi Madiebo on 5th March 2019
When I heard the news Olu I was numb. I couldn’t get out of bed!!!! Over the years Olu you became the older brother that I never had. You always advised me. You flew all the way to Nigeria for my wedding. Each time you were in Nigeria you would spend at least one night at our house because if you didn’t you knew I would get upset. Words fail me, my heart fails me...I don’t understand how this could happen to someone so wonderful. Kayode and I are devastated. To say Olu was wonderful is to say the least. He was kind, caring and very very thoughtful. Ifeolu, I will miss you like crazy but in all I pray that your soul Rests In Peace and that the Lord will give us your family whom you have left behind the strength to bear this great loss. Buchi Madiebo Solomon
