Hmmm Jide...I watched as you were laid to rest yesterday with so much pain in my heart...

Jide!!!!! Chai!!! In all honesty you didn’t deserve to go this soon.Am soooooo pained because you played your part well and trusted your beloved hospital (Rjolad) to play theirs but they failed you!!! I never imagined that things will get this bad..Never!!!!!

I remember how we met when I joined AIICO pension and later discovered that you were married to Lara my long time friend..I remember how we worked on two major projects together..I remember how I stressed you so much to deliver on the projects..I remember how you always brought your calm, composed, intelligent ideas to the projects..I remember how you always listened attentively to me anytime I needed to rant..I remember how we usually disagree and agree...I remember how you detest people arguing particularly if it was in your favour...I remember our discussions about property, death and career...I remember your daily routine with your kids (your investments)...I remember how you always talked about your weekend routine of taking Foyin to make her hair and Gideon to play football..I remember how you never liked to stress Lara when I requested you worked later than planned particularly on weekends. I remember you in your fitted suite and glasses every Monday morning seating behind me during the meeting and hitting my seat intermittently..I remember how you call me“Mrs Agbedee!!Stubborn!!”.

Jide!!!!!!!! You were gentle, soft spoken(but can be very firm), very punctual, professional, dependable, selfless, very hardworking and thoughtful..You never did things beyond your capacity..You were contented with what you had..You loved Lara and the kids dearly and lived for them..You also never joked with your grand mother and dad particularly..

Jide oooo!!!! I have known you for barely 20 months and it seems like forever..Never did I imagine that I will be writing about you in your absence...Am forever grateful to God for making our paths cross and to you for choosing to be my true friend (though for a short while but it was impactful)..

I trust God that He will not leave nor forsake Lara and your kids.. He will stand by them and meet them at the point of their need..He will also comfort and strengthen your parents,siblings,grand parents and extended family..

Sleep on my dearly beloved Jide till we meet to part no more...

I have known Jide from childhood days, as I lived close to his grandparents. Jide was very gentle and calm. Even as we grew older, had our families and rarely saw each other as frequently as before, he always ensured to keep in touch by sending messages on birthday and anniversary celebrations. His passing on is very painful, but I take solace in the fact that he was a Christian and believe he is resting in the bosom of our heavenly Father. I pray that God comforts and strengthens his immediate family and loved ones

I never met Babajide but I know his wife Omolara as a friend. I am sure she extends such grace from her husband. Though gone but will forever be missed.

I pray God give Lara, his children and the entire family he left behind the fortitude to bear his demise.

Rest on Brother!

I know you as the most reserved and coolest officer APML ever had, we don't really talk, but I remember late last year when you open our office entrance door for me, then I told myself, "this man has always been a gentleman since I know him here"
Rest on bro
We'll all miss your face
The world just lost a gentleman

Babajide Olowolagba, it is hard to accept that you were no more.You were a special true colleague, friend and a good listener with good heart. I learnt a lot from you on the job because you were patient and ever ready to teach and learn from others. You will be sorely missed, we love you but God loves you more.
May the Lord continue to comfort your entire family,you may now rest in peace.

Your service of songs today is a testament of the fact that you lived a very good life albeit, short based on our human understanding.

Seats were not enough, testimonies abound of your good deeds by family, friends and colleagues alike.

The desire of yours to have underprivileged kids to have education and widows enjoy life are highly commendable.

God bless you Jide. Your good deeds are wise investments for Lara and your seeds. They will not suffer, this I know.

Keep resting on till we complete our own assignments to meet and part no more.

This is still unreal. But we can’t question God. To know you was to love life, smile, love one another, remain optimistic, and be cheerful. Indeed, you’ve departed this sinful world prematurely, but have lived a good life. I know you’ll make an exemplar amongst angels.
May your very gently soul continue to Rest In Peace and May God continue to strengthen your loved ones.

Jide!! You were a good man! Gosh!! The news of your demise came to me as a rude shock. You were always keeping in touch, always checking up, always remembered to call on my birthday. You had great plans for your family and did so many research on how to materialize these plans. God is never mocked and I trust He will not depart from your family. Rest in peace my dear friend! So glad I had the privilege of knowing you. May God comfort your family and fill the vacuum only Him can do in their hearts.

My eye filled up with tears, my heart was so heavy when I heard that the kindhearted Babajide Omoleye Olowolagba is late. I wished it was an imagination or mere dream,but it is real!now I got the interpretation that say's "The straight & tall tree does not last in the forest"

Babajide Omoleye Olowolagba has lived his life to the fullest and impact many lives around him during his time here with us. He loved his family dearly and a devoted Husband/Father/Brother/Cousin,and was a comfort to Grandma ,also Bimbo's confidant . 

With the time we have spent together right from childhood till death,Babajide has not just been a cousin, but a brother who have being very supportive in every area.It is difficult to imagine that Myself and Bimbo ll not see u in midst again. Our heart ll always be filled with wonderful memories of the good times we had together. No doubt ur absence ll be greatly felt by Bimbo and I . We ll miss u, ur brotherly companion,care and love. However,those memories ll linger on in our minds.

God we can not ask u why because u see & know beyond our understanding. We take solace in the fact that we are going to meet over there to depart no more.

My prayer is that God in his mercies should give the Olowolagba's family and the entire family of Kinyomi the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Heaven Gain, Earth Loss

Hmmm,life is indeed a market place,though I wasn’t so closed to you growing up because I was a very stubborn child and you would always scold me,little did I know that you wanted only the best for me.I realized and it’s of good benefit to me,your impact in my life cannot be overemphasized because you are part of the few that moulded me into the strong and smart young lady that I have become.

You were a disciplinarian but Godfearing,humble and down to heart.You lives a live worth emulating,you were intelligent and always ready to assist academic wise.

I could go on and on but I will like to stop here.I am consoled cause I know that the angels are rejoicing to have you....Rest in the bosom of our Lord.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen,Unheard, but always near, so loved,so missed, so very dear.
Babajide Olowolagba was my neighbour back in the days at jakande estate isolo, he was such a cool,calm and easy going guy. We recently reconnect during a training session after long years, and he promised to keep in touch which he did (WhatsApp chat),I will forever cherish the last group picture we took together. Adieu Babajide.

It is hard for me to accept that am writing a tribute for one so dear and my birthday mate. If anyone had told me that I will be writing tribute to the memory of Jide Olowolagba at this time I would have said that it was inconceivable.

Jide lived a simple and plain lifestyle. He was a true Christian in word and real life, a gentleman to the core. He is a man of honour and integrity, qualities that are very rare in our society today.

I have no doubt that the God he believed in and served so diligently has welcomed him to his bosom. He was a loving husband to his wife a strong and caring father to his children.

Adieu Jide

We are profoundly saddened by the loss of Jide Olowolagba

He was a great Colleague and Friend

Jide changed the dynamic wherever he was, with his tremendous sense of humor, warmth and intelligence. When Jide was involved, you knew everything would be better. He was simply incomparable, hardworking and fun to be with! I'll remember his love for good conversations, his immense courtesy and concern for others. In all ways, Jide was special and will be greatly missed

Goodbye Jide..

So sad this happen so soon, but I know vividly that there is always a reason for everything.
Keep sleeping in the heart of the Lord till we see to part no more.... We love you but God love you most.

I can boldly say Uncle Jide was my very first friend when my family and I moved to 11, Gbeto Street, Iwaya. He was the big brother I never had. Moving to Gbeto Street as a teenager, a time in one's life when one made some unwise decisions, uncle Jide would make sure my head was correct. I had intentions of studying Accounting when I got to the university and he was there to guide me through as the fellow accountant that he was. Even after moving from Iwaya, uncle Jide would always check up on me and never ever forget my birthday. I'm still dazed hearing about his demise, but I choose to hold on to the fact that God is good. The memories I have of you are ever lovely and I choose to also hold on to that. I'm sure our heavenly Father is glad to have you. Rest well uncle Jide.

Jide Exudes poise and inspires confidence.
He can be relied upon to deliver.  He comes across as a child of God even from afar. May his peace be with you my brother till we meet on the golden stream where we meet to part no more at the Lord's feet.

Jydo, we started out as neighbors, and then became friends, and ended up becoming brothers, I still cant believe you are no longer here, I will definitely miss our conversations and name calling and most especially our bond.
You were the glue that kept "PANACHE"together, I still think about all those days as kids walking around and getting into all kinds of trouble you were always the voice of reasoning.
I've cried , and gotten upset since I heard of your passing. but in as much as it sucks that the world lost a great soul,i take comfort in knowing that we all also gained a new angel.
I know you are in a better place, and just like you checked up on everyone here on earth to make sure we were ok, I know you will be doing the same for us from above.
You will always have your in my heart "BOOM" , and all I can say is thank you for being that brother I never had, and for showing us all how to love, accept and care for friends and family unconditionally.
Rest on my padi for life.

Oh death where's thy sting! It is with heartbroken I write this. It was a rude shocking moment for me when i woke up to read the news about your demise. I can't even get over this still. I had to make series of calls to confirm the sad news. Jide Olowolagba, a gentle soul, easy going,cool headed, a jolly good fellow. May God in HIS mercy forgive your shortcoming, and make Heaven a better place for you. We(OLD GRAMMARIAN SOCIETY '96 SET) are bereaved. Good night brother!

Hmmm jido like I fondly call u. I can't honestly believe I'm writing this down this moment. My heart sank the min I got Bodunrins msg that u had passed on. Tears rolled down my cheeks having to deal with the fact that I had lost 2 very dear pple to my heart within a space of one month.
Jido was a one in a million brother he would always check up on u and gave words of encouragement even when I was down. My birthdays were never a miss to Jido. His WhatsApp msg always got in 12 midnight on my birthday and that of my hubby and kids.
I would definitely miss all the good times we had in unilag and even afterwards. U were my only guy frd that my hubby knew. U would always find time to check me up whenever I'm ard despite ur work schedule and ur pet name for me "baby Deru" will linger in my heart 4eva.
I will miss u so so much jido but take solace in the fact that u are with ur creator.
Continue to rest in peace my dearest padi of life

I am really short of words, can't seem to put the words together. All that comes to mind is why, why, why, why you Jide?
We have elderlies well over 80 years in the family, why didn't this death take one of them?
Guess that is just one of life mysteries we can never fully understand but I take solace believing you are in a better place away from the troubles of this world.

Though we don't see or talk much but the few times we did, you always brought a smile to my face. You had enough calmness to spread around, a gentleman to the core. Your demise is a great loss! You will be greatly missed brother.

I pray that your gentle soul finds eternal rest and May the holy spirit comfort your wife, kids, parents and everyone of us.
