I don’t even know what to say, this came as a rude shock. I flashback to our secondary school days and recall what a sweet gentle girl you were. I thank God for the woman you became, I thank God for the life you lived in Christ, I thank God you made yourself available for his service, I am fully persuaded He will find you a Vessel of honour. I know you are in a better place in unity with our Saviour. May the Good Lord console all left behind to mourn you.
Rest well sweet one.

Moji Benson…hmmm, where can I start? Moji, my egbon with the eternal youthful look. You would always very fondly let people know that you were the older sister because I looked older than you (that youthful beauty !) and would introduce me to people as your ‘baby sister’. You have been there for me all of my life, my immediate big sister.

There are so many stories I could tell about you, like how you used to look out for me after school when we were in primary school…. or how you, sis Kemi and Toyin used to ‘chance’ me because I was the youngest…… and how you and Pastor Kehinde encouraged me to relocate to UK to pursue my masters’ degree and supported me when I did move …. And of course, our many, many conversations about anything and everything…. plus, you could fall asleep anywhere sha, even standing .

You were a solid rock for me over the years, always ready to lend an ear. You supported me during challenging times, encouraged me when I was unsure and celebrated joyous moments with me. You were always so calm and full of wisdom. You were such an inspiration to me, your determination and grit, in building your dream business. It was such a joy celebrating your many successes with you, and you excitedly sharing with me each new step you were taking with your business. I am so proud of you! You always brought such warmth into my heart and you were so giving.

And we all know what an awesome woman of God you were. You loved God and served Him diligently. I know that you are now singing with the angels in heaven. I just always took it for granted and assumed that we would grow old together. I can’t quite comprehend that I will not hear your sweet voice again, see your beautiful face again, or listen to your gentle teasing again. But I know that you are now looking down at us with a warm gentle smile as we celebrate your life. Please give my love to mummy and daddy. Mojisola Omolola Benson nee Fakeye, I love you and will miss you terribly, but I know that you are in a better place, my sweet, sweet sister.

My memories of you sis Moji were quite lovely and lasting. Just a week before the sad news of your relocation to glory, Inyang Valerie Fashanu (nee:Idiong) and I mentioned you and sis Toyin....fond memories in FGGC New bussa of sisters that were reserved, well spoken, kind, always together, humble and yet so posh. Heaven has gained an angel .

It was great shock and heart felt sadness when we heard the news of your demise.

Our memories of you are that of a beautiful, sweet, pleasant and thoughtful sister.

I remember when my hubby and I were expecting our second child you gave me a book on “praying for you unborn child” after the delivery you were one of the first to turn up with a home cooked meal which was very thoughtful.

There are so many things our human minds can’t comprehend but we are rest assured that you have gone to be with the Lord.

We pray that the God of all comfort, comfort the loved ones you have left behind in Jesus name

My dearest sis Moji , the last time we spoke we were planning to come and visit you ,not knowing that will be the last time of seeing. We will miss your smile,your creativity and your passion for God. We pray that God will sustain the family you left behind. Sleep well my dear sister in the bosom of the Lord.

Beautiful Moji Benson nee Fakeye, reading of your untimely demise via our FGGC New Bussa WhatsApp group was a huge shock. I actually had to call Toyin nee Fakeye to make sure what I just read was true.
You were brilliant, had a lovely smile which was infectious and you had a kind heart. Back in our secondary school days, you never hesitated to share your provisions etc.
Sad as it is to know you are no longer with us in this part of eternity, we know we will meet again at the feet of Jesus. 1Thessalonians 4:13-14.
My sincere condolences to your husband, your lovely children, your younger sister and your two elder sisters.
Sleep on Moji......

My dearest Sister Moj,

I will treasure the good memories of you especially at Praise Tabernacle as well as at our Home Fellowship.

You were a lovely kind hearted person and will forever be in our hearts. We know you have gone to be with the Lord.

May the good Lord grant your family fortitude at this time.

May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace Amen

My dear friend Mojisola Omolola Benson née Fakeye.

The news of your demise still feels like a bad dream but God knows best.Our friendship dates back from Primary school ,when you were at St Mary’s Private School and I was in ADRAO International School :but the same Ministry of Justice School bus took and picked us from school.

We went to different secondary schools only to be reunited at the Faculty of Law in University and later at the Nigerian Law School,Lagos. Where we became inseparable.

Moji! Witty,Ever smiling,mischievous,contagious laughter,hazel-eyed,dark and lovely Anita Baker hair cut,Jovial,beautiful inside out.

We walked ,played and studied hard together in school.

Then life happened and we lived in different continents.I am glad we kept in touch more in what turns out to be your last years ,even though our plan to meet up in London in 2020 didn’t happen ,thanks to the several lockdowns.

I’m sure you are in a better place and resting in the bosom of the Lord.We love you but God loves you more..You will be sorely missed,I will forever cherish the fond memories we shared growing up ..

May God Almighty, the Beneficent, the Merciful have mercy on you and grant you eternal rest .May to good Lord comfort Kehinde and the Children as well as your siblings:Sister Kemi,Toyin and Labukun.and give them fortitude to bear the loss.

I leave Our dear Ojuolape to post more pictures from her archives but I have posted the Jambito lefayts one.

Sun re Oremi Atata ,Moji Benson

Mojisola Benson nee Fakeye my dear friend and school mate. You were such a sweet and amiable person . I’m sure that was what endeared me to you and later impacted on my beautiful relationship with your big sis Toyin Adesanya. The news of your demise was and still a shock but my joy is that you are with the Lord whom you loved dearly. Our good Lord will give your dear hubby, lovely children, wonderful siblings , cousins, friends and the church of God the fortitude to bear this immeasurable loss. We loved you but God loved you more. You would be sourly missed ore mi. Rest on my beautiful rare gem.

Moji I woke up to the news of your home call with very rude shock like I couldn’t even read English texts. Your memories and legacies lives on even in your death you gently touched and ministered to me on knowing and serving God with everything no matter our situations. You testimonies really hit home.

Moji I still remember your smiles and laughter at Toyin’s wedding the light and happiness you had ! To your wonderful husband pastor Kenny, the children ,your sisters and everyone we take solace in your knowing God personally this is home call to glory to be with other angels. Rest on peacefully sis.

My dear Moji. When we talked on the phone in November 2020 while I was in UK, as I usually do when I am there, little did I know it was the last time that I would talk to you.
Rest in peace my caring and ever smiling niece. We love you but Jesus loves you more . Words cannot express our shock and sadness at the news of your demise. Our consolation is that we shall meet again one day in the bossom of Jesus..
Sunre my darling niece,a good soldier of Jesus.

It was a rude shock when your sister announced on the FGGC New-Bussa platform that you've transited. In your usual calm and cool nature we hardly hear you on the platform. Though short, but with what have read, it was an eventful life because you died in christ.
To all, the husband, children, siblings and friends left, we need not sorrow as those without hope, because she didn't die, but slept. May God comfort you all. Rest on beautiful angel!
Posted by Busola Matthews on January 12, 2021
Moji it was a huge shock to learn of your passing on a few days back. The last time we saw was probably when we all left FGGC New Bussa at the completion of our Senior School Certificate but you remained forever young and beautiful as you were when we were in sch school.
Reconnecting with Toyin a few years back brought the hope of seeing you again but alas this is not to be. Our consolation now is that we shall meet at the resurrection. Rest on in the bosom of our father till we meet again. The testimony of the life you lived as a Christian is an encouragement.

Darling cousin, 
You were loved by everyone.
I never saw you angry or sad, you were always laughing. Full of wit and always joking.
You were my inspiration to study law.
We were supposed to have a family practice, together with your mum and sister Kemi. Then you went away.
I always looked up to you, all your friends were always reminding me of you even when you went away. They all loved you. God loves you more.
I did not mourn when I heard of your passing.
I knew of your walk with the Lord. Everytime I was in London I never saw you because you were always in Bristol for church work.
You are at rest. You are loved. You are missed.

Moji (Nee) Fakeye! Such a lovely gentle soul. I had the privilege of being your colleague at LASU Laws. It was of course a shock hearing this sad news. I haven’t heard of you since 1993 but remembered straight away, you and that serene and calm demeanour you possessed. May you Rest In Peace and May God be with those you have left behind. Rest in the Lord, Moji.

Mojisola, my darling sister, child of God, beautiful soul, lover of Christ.

Moji was a beauty to behold. She was born fair with very dark full hair.She grew up to be a beautiful woman. She studied Law after me ,and she practised briefly before Kehinde married her and she relocated to the United Kingdom to continue the course of her sojourn on earth.

I visited Moji in Bristol ,she looked as beautiful as always, she told me about her labour in the vineyard of the Lord. She told me about her evangelism activities at the City Center. The most memorable testimony was about someone who didn't believe in God and He used them (Benson's) to minister life to the person .She gave testimony of some other church members.

Mojisola had a very long conversation with me a few weeks ago, encouraging me about my career,and family. She gave me my First Christmas gift too.

Mojisola has won the race, she has gone to be with the Lord.I am very grateful to the Lord for giving me a very sincere, honest, loving, and very caring sister.

The journey was short but To God Be The Glory for a fulfilled life. I love you but God loves you more. Rest on my darling sister.
Posted by Toyin Fakeye-Adesanya on January 11, 2021
Mojisola, you have really ministered to me. You were such a committed Christian. You served God passionately with everything you had. You encouraged me to do same.
Words are not sufficient to express how I feel and the thoughts of my mind.
The distance in our locations didn't serve as a hindrance to our closeness. We shared a lot of memories from primary school to the days of fggc, New Bussa, then to University days. We had common friends.
You knew me so well and understood my weaknesses.
I will forever cherish our memories, the long talks, hopes and business plans/ strategies you shared with me.
My tears were erased when I heard you said you knew you were going to Jesus. Hallelujah! You deserve that greater place.
Love you so much my darling sister. You will forever be missed.

The Life of Moji Benson - true beauty inside and outside

Mojisola Omolola Benson was born on the 20th April 1971 to late Mr Ezekiel Ayinde Oke Fakeye and late Mrs Patience Bamijoko Kofoworola Fakeye, She was the 3rd of four girls, born to them. Moji had her primary school education at St. Mary’s Private School, Lagos before heading to Federal Government Girls' College, New Bussa for her secondary school education. She studied Law at the Lagos State University (LASU) and was called to the bar in 1996 at the prestigious Nigeria Law School. Moji practised as a lawyer in Nigeria until 1998, when she relocated to UK for her post graduate degree at Brunel University, London.

She first briefly met her Kehinde Benson at a computer school in 1993, but fate would bring them together again in 1996 when she met him at the call to bar celebration of Hon. Babajimi Benson. After a romantic courtship, they got married on the 11th of July 1998. Soon after their wedding, Moji and Kehinde relocated together to UK to study for their post graduate degree courses at Brunel University. Right from their courtship days, Moji and Kehinde knew the Lord, loved and served God earnestly. They formed a united front to live a life of service to God, which saw them serve first at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Praise Tabernacle, and then at Christ Faith Tabernacle. It was at Christ Faith Tabernacle that they were sent on a mission to open a branch at Bristol, which they led until her demise. Their union is blessed with two beautiful children Oreoluwa and Oluwatise.

Not only was she a strong Christian, but she was also a phenomenally successful and enterprising businesswoman. She single-handedly built her international fashion brand of top-quality handbags, handbagcrave, with sales all over the world. She recently launched her ‘Lola Benson’ range, which has proven to be a popular brand.

Moji was dedicated to her children and was a constant source of encouragement to her sisters, with whom she shared a strong bond.

She was a lover of God, faithful wife, devoted mother, supportive sister, aunty, niece, and cousin to many. You are gone but will never be forgotten. We will always love you and miss you. Sun re o, Mojisola Omolola Benson.

Moji an exemplary child of God

Blessing God for pastor Dupsy and I  being Pastors Moji and Kehinde’s pastors. Their wedding showcased their rudiments in the word of God and  the level of their obedience to our maker . They stood resolute in the instructions in righteousness  not to compromise their faith. We are forever endeared  to them. What God could and did God not achieve in Moji’s life it is no telling;  she followed God and is such an example
Of a child of God. We will
Miss you. Praying for strength for Pastor Kehinde , the children, family and the church , Glad God ordered our steps to find these photo all the way in Charlotte. Showing young Mayowa and Chiamaka on Moji and Kehinde’s wedding day as we served them . Moji your light drew many to Christ and it is shining forever in glory !!!

Pretty and gentle Moji. Like a flower you were here for a beautiful moment. My most precious memories are the times spent with you all during my school breaks. We were all so young, happy and full of smiles. And then life sent us off to worlds apart. But God was kind to bring us together one more time for another lasting memory. I can still see your smile as we came together with the family...our kids...to enjoy an evening at 805. In this busy life we took a moment to smell the roses....What a lovely family time with you....what a blessing!...a time to always cherish in my heart....love always dear cousin......you are shining with God........Adenrele. ..
