Dear BJ you were my first department head in Loveward, I can’t remember what we were called but we made posters and put them up for the service. You always shared your experiences and testimonies and you were one of the people that helped me settle into the fold. You will be missed and our thoughts are with your family and pray that the Lord comforts them all in Jesus mighty name amen

The memory of the righteous is blessed. You came, lived, and transitioned to a better place. We thank God for the time you spent on this earth. May your children surpass your expectations. May they live the years you didn't get to live. You are the best of you now with the father. Sun re o Bolaji!

BeeJay
Such an amazing personality
The love, the joy, the challenge
You helped me to understand very early that within each one of us lies the embodiment of the Creator and His Creativity
That first act of producing the acrylic banner has gone a loooooong way....
So much to say but......
While you will be missed physically on this side of Heaven, we are assured that your absence here is Heaven's gain and most definitely our gain for it means that our fellowship was not in vain.
Merci mon ami et mon frère
Gracias mi amigo y mi hermano
Thank you for sharing your life and passions
Good night and see you in the morning

Brother Bjay, was uniquely different, he always wore a smile,very matured,filled with zeal for God and his children,he loved to discuss the things of God and always settled different doctrinal issues and made brotherly love prevail, though he was a member of Love Ward fellowship on campus, he related very well with most of the brethren in other fellowships, he was a confirmed Child of the Most high God,cool headed and always ready to do things for God. He was a friend to my wife Olufunmilade and we both screamed when we heard of his transition to glory. May God raise more people like Bro Bjay in this generation that will unite the body of Christ in wisdom. Condolences to his Wife, children and his extended family ,Pst Poju, Agboola,Debo and co. Rest on good Soldier of Christ till the resurrection morning.

Biography

Mobolaji Babatunde ANIBABA was born on the 5th of August 1965 to the family of Mr Mutiu Olasoju Anibaba and Mrs Adebisi Ayesha Anibaba at the Island Maternity Hospital, Lagos Island, Lagos.
He attended St.Bernardette Nursery and Primary school Abeokuta and finished his primary school curriculum at the University of Lagos Staff School, Akoka in 1976. He then went to the Federal Government College Lagos, Ijanikin from 1976 to 1981 for his secondary education. He was admitted to the University of Lagos, Akoka for Architecture in 1982 graduating with a combined degree in Architecture and Environmental Design. 
Bolaji has always been very entrepreneurial. While he was at the university, he ran a business designing and producing t-shirts and polo-shirts, from which he earned considerable income as a student. Post graduation, Bolaji fell in love with the furniture and interior decor business that would form his major stock in trade for several years until he rediscovered his passion for architecture and construction which he was fully immersed in until his passing. 
For most of his professional life, he ran his own business. He however had the privilege of working for a few years with a number of organizations and on some important projects including Design Point Limited and the Living Faith church. With the latter, he was part of the Covenant University Project team, after which he was deployed to the National Projects team, building churches and schools around the country. After a few years, Bolaji resigned his position in 2005 to continue his entrepreneurial journey. He was scheduled to facilitate the construction of a major hotel project when his health began to deteriorate. 
Bolaji got born again in circa 1985 following a miraculous restoration of his health - a testimony he always shared with passion. He was a dedicated member and leader of the Loveward (campus) fellowship and a founding member of the Word of Faith Bible Church (now the Covenant Nation). For over 20 years, he was a member of the Winners Chapel, where he was ordained a Deacon and served as a Zonal Minister. He later joined the Highlife Church where he served on the pastoral team of the Community church responsible for reaching a specific demographic, not only with the Word of God, but with activities designed to build them up secularly. But more than his formal church activities, BJ was passionate about God, and about winning souls to Christ. In recent years, he made a habit of carrying out personal evangelistic outreaches along with a few friends every week. He believed that this was ultimately his Heavenly Father's heart and the crux of his journey of faith having had a vision of people burning in hell in his early days as a Christian. 
BJ loved football and dogs! When he attended his mother's funeral in England in August 1983, his dexterity and passion for the game resulted in an offer to join the junior team of Tottenham Hotspurs, which he could not accept as he had to return home for his education. 
He was a fitness freak as a young man, always encouraging his sibling and friends likewise. He was a loving, supportive and protective elder brother to Khalil and Farouk, and was loved by members friends and family alike. 
A caring and faithful husband and father, for over 22 years, Bolaji was married to Yetunde Anibaba nee Ajayi, and together have two lovely daughters Oluwakorede and Oluwatomisin Bolaji- Anibaba.

My Bolaji Anibaba Story;

Shared by Tatyana's outlet on July 6, 2021
By Okechukwu NWADE
I first heard of Bolaji Anibaba before I met him.
This was in 1977, in a place called Satellite Town in Lagos,a temporary boarding facility for the male students of FGCL.
Two members of 1976 entry set were discussing a Legend,a story of how a brave little Bolaji Anibaba had stood up to some bully in a previous Hostel for FGCL students in Isaac John in Yaba.
I did not have the privilege to be in Isaac John,and stories of all that occured in Isaac John deeply interested me.
I saw Bolaji not long after,a fight had broken out between two male students,both belligerents were dear friends of mine,I was learning dancing (John Travolta/Saturday Night fever type of dance steps) from one of them and I was learning punting in the shallow waters around Satellite Town from the other.
Ordinarily we loved to watch fights,but this was one fight I did not wish to watch.
So I sprang in-between and a Karate kick from one of them,like a mule kick almost dislocated my hips.
Bjay and another student came in to break the fight.
We broke up the fight,no Victor no vanquished and Bolaji Anibaba became a friend afterwards.
Bolaji Anibaba a fine sportsman: Boxer,Table Tennis.
Bolaji Anibaba an extremely reliable Ally.
Long after FGCL I continued to be in touch with Bjay,in UNILAG Bjay sought out my younger brother who looks much like me and became very close with him for my sake.
Such was the friendship.
The friendship transcended decades,and in all those years Bjay never stopped being extremely reliable.
GOD has in HIS wisdom decided to call Bjay home.
The same GOD is able to comfort and strengthen Bjay's immediate family and all those who knew him and who have deeply felt his departure.
I thank GOD for the privilege to have known such a wonderful person and I will cherish the impressions and memories B Jay left behind till my dying day.
May GOD rest Bjay's soul till we meet to part no more.

BJ was that friend who stuck closer than a brother i remember back then in Unilag 3rd year when I had accomodation challenges it was him who took me in despite the owner saying he was to stay in the quarter's alone at Ozolua. To stay with him meant compulsory the early morning loveward prayers at the sports centre i can't miss because buy 4.30am he would wake me up to put beans on fire so that by the time we come back food is ready. The gas cooker has to be the right tuning, water, pepper, palm oil, and all the  eperegies. Im sure the B in his name meant beans. When it comes to the study of the scriptures BJ can stay all night he had this bible that was forever in his bag fully marked with notes everywhere. 
During my thesis finals even though he had graduated BJ left home then in Gbagada moved to studio with me together we worked from Friday to Monday morning maybe we had 2 to 3 hours sleep in all. That was BJ for me.
After school days he would call on me to find out how practice is and ministry the last time we spoke he was telling me of his plans to go into the ministry full time. May the lord comfort my Sis Yetunde and the family at this time and may his soul rest in peace.
