"How quickly time flies! The young girl from Emotan Close, with a good nature, a witty sense of humour and a lovely smile, who grew into a beautiful lady, wife mother and magistrate. It's been 3 yrs since you departed to be with the Lord, but the sweet memories we shared right from your youth in Lagos, at school, home and church; when you and your siblings schooled at Brooke House and stayed in Kilburn; the period of your wedding to Dewunmi, your heart throb, including your party and right through motherhood, especially the delivery of your first child in London, shall forever remain with me. Your humility and sense of fairness in judging issues will always be remembered also. The significant impact you made in the years you spent with us is something your family, friends and all who interacted with you will never forget. Sun ire o!"

This tribute was added by Bola Ogundipe on 22nd April 2014

"Dearest Mojisola aburo mi, your demise has set me off on a torrent of emotions firstly because I know we who are in Christ do not die but are raised to new life in eternity and secondly because you assured me that you will be healed and restored as it was not time to go and be with our creator. I leaned on the edge of my faith standing on Gods promises to heal and restore until you took your last breath. I wish it was a dream but painful as it is I must accept Gods will. He is sovereign and unquestionable. He is our life line and makes no mistakes. It is comforting to know that though you are absent in the body you are present with Christ rejoicing with heavenly saints.        

I am thankful that you shared your last days with your siblings sharing and recapping memories of our childhood. Your love for bananas keep coming to mind and how you used to hide under the dining table yelling " muuuuuuuummy"
I won bayaaaaaya".  I also recall times when we needed to cajole mum to allow us go to a party you would go into her room; yank her clothes out of her wardrobe and start tidying and folding them back neatly. Off course mum fell for it and low and behold we got our pass to freedom.                

You said "goodbye" twice last time we spoke and it resonated in my heart but I refused to accept it was final. I am thankful that Denrele and I were with you until the end massaging you and enjoying the peaceful countenance that you displayed before the spirit left you.  Mojisola I love you soooooooo much and I know you will forever live in my heart. Thank you for being part of my life and for all your prayers and wise counsel.                                                               Mojisola your name has answered to you. Indeed you have woken up to glory. I can imagine you praising and rejoicing with the saints.
                                                                                                                               Rest in peace away from the turbulence and trials of this world.            
Your dear sister,

Thank you for your support.Thank you for keeping on Uncle Yinka's love for me.

Funny how my memory of you at MGHS is about you, cooking nice food and bringing it in beautiful dishes that my mum would never have allowed me to bring to school because I was not careful enough not to break it.! And you would make enough to feed an army. I also remember that I never saw you quarrel with any one.
You were such a sweet gentle soul with a fantastic fashion sense. I read all tributes and I know that you are sorely missed.
Rest in peace Moji.

God loves you more"

"Auntie Moj, Chairlady!

She was truly a beautiful woman and had the looks every woman longed for – the right shape, size, height, beauty… she seemed to have it all. I don’t know how she did it, but she maintained those looks and always appeared well put together – she never had an “off” moment.

She was beautiful inside - out. She was a calm person who was not easily ruffled by events – she took it all in her stride and had a great sense of humor – she could see the funny side of life.
She was a fantastic and passionate mother , wife and was fully involved in anything to do with her children. Usually, the average teenager these days wouldn’t want to be seen to “hang out” with their mom as it would affect their “rep” but she was such an interesting person that her kids found a cool friend in her to hang out with!

She was a great lover of life – she loved good food and made the meanest jollof rice. She always knew where to find the best nibbles.
She was warm, accommodating, and not just provided support but always actively involved in family functions. She was the ideal  family person and will definitely be greatly missed.

I pray that God will comfort her children, her husband and the entire family at this time of her passing. May the Lord secure, strengthen and uphold all that she has left behind in Jesus name. May death be far from this family as a whole; may we not have cause to sorrow over anyone. May God keep us all in Jesus name."

This tribute was added by Ajoke Obilade on 4th April 2014

"May the good Lord comfort the family Moji has left behind.  Amen.  The Lord will give you all cause to rejoice.  

I remember the Unilag days and Moji's first year in MG when she was friends with my late cousin Yinka Shoroye (nee Tomori) and they were always hanging out together.
Fast forward to university days and the Adesanya girls (Denrele, Bola & Moji) were always "baffed up" and looking smart all the time.
Moji was always quiet and a copy of their mum's character, easy going and gentle.

Denrele, Bola, Ade, Niyi, Toun, Tolu may the Lord fill the void Moji left.
We take solace that she is in a better place with our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Joke Obilade nee Ajayi of Jumbo Close)"

My condolences to your family. I am sorry to hear you have passed away, but I am pleased and comforted to know that you are in a better place with the most high God. In all things, we praise God, as he is all-knowing. May your soul rest in peace and may your children grow up to be successful and Godly people."

This tribute was added by Simee A on 4th April 2014

"Mojisola, I can't believe I'm writing in the past tense about you. You had a kind and loving soul and I cherish the years spent with you and your family all the way from Emotan Close at Unilag, through the years in England and back to Nigeria. Even though my parents were strict about letting me go visiting, and despite the fact that we shared considerable time at school and in church, your home was always an exemption and the memories made will never be forgotten. "Ile ebi, ile eni na ni."  Even the pranks of those yester-years are still fresh in my mind.
I always appreciated your frank and down-to-earth character. You weighed in on issues without partiality even if it was one of your siblings that had erred, and for this I was always grateful; which I can be assured was also a strength in character you must have displayed during your years of legal practice.
I can still recall your pre-wedding party and your first pregnancy even though these were so many years ago. Now they seem like yesterday.
Your laughter was rather infectious and I'll never forget it. Even as I'm typing it still brings a smile. I still can't believe you're gone, maybe it's just the shock. I'd inquired about you from Dewunmi earlier in the year unaware that you were ill and that I would never get to see you here on earth again.
Remembering you as a woman of strength and assured that your faith was strong, I can be rest assured that you're now resting in the Lord's bosom. No one departs unless their purpose is fulfilled and I'm sure you fought the battle that assures you'll receive your crown, so until we meet again at Christ's feet, may you rest well, dear.
Bi o ba ti dun to, had you lived to celebrate your 50th, but the Lord who has seen it fit to call you home now, will surely take care of your family, immediate and extended. Ojo a jina si ra won o! Olorun a re gbogbo wa lekun, a de te e s'afefe rere l'oruko Jesu."

"Moji, when Bola informed me of your sickness, we were asked to pray and fasted for miracle for you. You were a generous sister. Kind hearted. I could remember one of your shopping trip to Brent Cross one summer
years back. You asked me with your smile "sister Dupe se eyin oni ra nkan ni' I told you in the Arabic l could still remember from serving in Libiya that mafisi fluse. Meaning no money. You bought me a raincoat. The best I owned. I cannot  thank
you enough for your numerous generousity. As l always say, givers never lack. All you have done to help people, your children will surely reap it. I pray that God will watch over your children and family you left behind. Continue to rest in peace until we meet to part no more."

We are thankfully for the loving memory you left us with!!! Rest in Peace Mojisola omo Adesanya!! May God guard your husband and the children you left behind.

And as sis Denrele wrote you celebrated God before you left this world now you are rejoicing with him!!!

I personally saw a genuine gentleness, love and a good heart in you, not only for your family but everyone around you. Thank you for those special moments standing in the gap when Ayokunle was a little boy.

Your time here was very short but you finished the race strong in the Lord. You will be missed but the goodness and kindness you showed to all lingers on forever.

"How do you write a tribute for someone you never thought would be gone so soon. Mojisola  Ogunsanya  Omo Adesanya Unbelievable!
It's been tough. Not a day passes that I don't think about you. I thank God for the good times that we had together. How can I forget the shopping trips to Brent Cross,the talks, laughs and  jokes we used to have together when you come to London and I always found my way down to Finchley Road to see you. I still look back at that time when we were close.Your going has changed my perspectives, ideas, paradigms? So many questions, very few answers.I imagine you are now clothed with glory.

You stood out as an example of that Scripture that says "In quietness shall be your strength"

I rest in the fact that the circumstances were beyond us.
I rest in the fact that God knows best.
I rest in the fact that your vacation is with the Lord.

Your beautiful smile forever in my thoughts.
Adieu, Mojisola  omo  Adesanya   Sun re O.

Best Wishes

"A Tribute to Moji Ogunsanya, a lovely, warm hearted, effervescent personality.

It's a rude shock to hear you have left this earth. We met in the Legal Department of Gateway Bank in Ikeja and those were days marked by hard work but also lots of gisting and laughter with you often at the center, so many bubbly young Christian ladies - You, Funke, Fausat, Taiwo etc. You in particular were kind, warm, forthright and principled. You were a great encourager to anyone battling life's challenges which we all were in different ways.

I saw you last over a year ago on a flight to London to check up on our "foreign investments". If only I had known it would be the last time on this side of existence, how I would have drawn out our brief chat and focused more on matters of eternal value. I know you loved and feared the Lord and I'm believing that you are resting in His bosom today. May He comfort and keep your husband and children."

"Beauty Moje"  That was your appellation. That was how I always called you. Deep in my heart, your memory is kept. You were loved and shall never be forgotten.
Growing up, you were one of my most beautiful and beloved little cousins. Your smile was always a beacon of light to those around you.
A cluster of memories sprinkled with tears, Wishing God had speared you a few more years.
I remember most times when I drove my mom (Mama Ilesha) to visit with her sister (Your Mom) in Lagos. Brother Jide,  Brother Jide, you always called me. You were always excited to see me and I could palpate the genuineness of the love and kindness that you had for me and my brothers anytime we came by.  Although time may pass and fade away , words may be few and thoughts may be deep but memories of you will always stay.  
I recalled the wonderful things that you did. You always fried Dodo and brought some into Olumide's boy's quarter apartment at Akoka just to be sure we were fed and well taken care of.
I remember several years ago when  you visited me and my family in Los Angeles, you made sure you spent at least one night. Despite all that I had to offer was a tiny little apartment.  I watched you as you slept  comfortably on my living room couch.
These were some small gestures of love that matter a lot. Never selfish, always loving and kind. These are memories you leave behind.
God bless you and keep you in His care until we meet again.

           It’s so hard writing this tribute and placing you in the past. I was just reading your last bb message and you assured me that everything was fine and you’re not going anywhere. But I know you’re with the Lord….. You’re the true epitome of elegance and grace. Forever the fashionista…. Like so many I had the privileged of spending my childhood at Emotan Close (Unilag). I’ll treasure those memories forever…I admired you tirelessly; your strength is like none other, your genuine kindness, your infectious laugh, your selflessness and most especially your unconditional Love for the Lord… I’m still in shock!!!

I’m eternally grateful for the constant love and support you showed towards our family especially my mum. Even in the midst of everything you were still asking me to comfort her…Just a true testament of who you truly are… She will miss you sooo much….We will all miss you so much.

Words can’t express the big void we would feel…. but you’re resting sweetly in the bosom of the Lord.

Love you

Funmi Kalejaiye (your cousin)"

"My sincere condolences to the entire family. So sorry to hear about your loss. We tried to catch you in London via a phone call but could not and actually spoke to your brother. I know that you're a strong believer and God will strengthen you and the entire family.

There are no explanations for certain events in life but the God of eternal comfort will keep you, heal your heart and do more than you can imagine to ensure her role and place in your family will not remain void.

I pray that God will strengthen and keep the whole family, he will make his face to shine on you and give you his peace that passes understanding. May HIS joy never depart from your homes and may her light continue to shine on. Thank God as believers, we have hope, we know she's resting in the bosom of our Lord and Savior. That hope will remain your anchor until you meet again...

You are in our prayers always and will be in touch once you're back home.


Kunle & Adebukola Sonuga"

"Mommy Fuad, as I love to call you. You lived  your life with integrity,  care for others and with joy. For there are no sad moment around you.
I remember when you came to Los Angeles years ago and we had a good time driving around LA, not very certain where were heading but we made the best of it with the our kids.
Even though God's plan did not line up with my expectation, I choose to praise Him for your life.  You had a personal relationship with God when you were here. For having the salvation of God you have added life to your life. In this I am comforted.
The Lord will continue to keep and comfort your family. Sun re O my darling in law!"

"Dear Sister Moji,

Rest in peace. May the grace of the Lord comfort all the loved ones you have left behind.


This tribute was added by abiola olubiyi on 2nd April 2014


going through the obituaries placed in the papers, there was something about your smile and name (Adesanya) which was vaguely familiar, until I read in one of the tributes that you attended Unilag Staff School and that Denrele is your older sister. Denrele and I were classmates at Unilag Staff School, and yes, we all grew up together in Unilag. My family lived on Ozolua road.

My prayer is that God will comfort your loved ones. It's also comforting to know that you knew the Lord. This makes me know from the scriptures that you are in a much better place, resting from your earthly travails.

Sleep on Moji, until we meet on the resurrection morning.

"Tribute to Moji Ogunsanya, my cousin and friend.
I am finding it so difficult to write about Moji in the past tense... I have known her all my life as my cousin, and we grew, as a friend.
Moji was beautiful and graceful, inside out, with the most amazing smile that would melt the heart of anyone.  When we were growing up, Moji and her two older sisters, Denrele and Bola reminded me of Charlie’s Angels, beautiful, tall and graceful.
My cousin Moji was a good wife, and natural mother, lavishing Dewunmi and their beautiful children with love and attention; her four well-mannered children are a living testimony to her motherhood.
She was a great homemaker, cooking, cleaning and everything in her house had its’ place; I can remember telling her that her house was always tidy and in order and that she was lucky to have such great staff and her response to me was that she did the work herself when everyone (including the staff) had gone to bed!
She was a go-getter and excelled in everything she laid her hands on…  Her wisdom as a magistrate in Lagos and the exquisite taste she had reflected in her dressing and jewelry she wore and sold.
She was a good cousin and a giver; we spent hours on end in those days in her parents’ house in Unilag and IIupeju gisting. I will miss her delicious cooking and the South African steak and ribs from her and Dewunmi! If not for Moji, I won’t be working in Chevron; we went to pick her up from Prime Merchant bank in Tinubu Square, one evening in 1989 when I saw Gulf Oil Company (now Chevron) next to her building and I thought it would be a good idea to work in the Company…  
The memories go on and on... is it the beautiful parties we had when she got married or the happy times we all had in her parents’ house in Unilag and Ilupeju
Moji was a good Christian and loved the Lord with all her heart and mind and served him till the end. Although I am sad that she left us so early, I know that she has gone to rest with our Maker and God will look after the family she left behind.
Till we meet again at Jesus feet.  
Mowunmi Majekodunmi"

My dear friend of over  34years, its amazing! I thank God for the time we spent together from M.G.H.S days to University of Lagos and Law school,and the the practice of our profession  etc. You on the bench and yours truly at the Bar. I thank God that we have Christ as our Lord and Savior.

What can I render o Lord My God!!!

Thank You Oh Lord For Moji's Life. I know you have translated in to the bosom of our Lord Jesus, But I  I still miss you for now. Do have a blissful rest. You deserve it my sister and friend.

To Moji's siblings, family and colleagues Eku oro eniyan. May the Almighty God and the Comforter, comfort you all at this time.

To Dewunmi Ogunsanya (Papa Fouad as I call you) and the Children I am so sorry; may the Almighty Allah keep you all and grant Moji peaceful rest in Al-Jan'at.

God Bless you all. Yours, Toyin Bashorun.(Tbash)"

This has all been a great shock for me.
I know you must be in the bossom of our Lord but that gives me little

Thank you for being the big egbon I needed you to be always supporting my work.

"Sis Mojie (like my mom calls you).

Still were ever so elegant and fashionable,always smiling, a strong woman of faith,a soldier.

You will be greatly missed Sis Moji, but you've fought a good fight and won the race.
I take solace in the word of christ,
I take solace because you never stopped believing in the power of prayer.
I take solace knowing your soul is free,free and no hurt nor pain could
ever come to you again.

Life and death is beyond our control and if it pleases God to take you to be with him,we cannot question him.

Rest in peace Sis Mojie."

Rest in peace sis Moji. Niyi, Mojoyin and I will miss you dearly."

"To our Lord Jesus be all the glory though a very short time but a complete live. God created us to be fruitful, multiple and enjoy dominion on earth. God gave you the GRACE to have achieved all the above in your very short existence.

The last prayer of our Lord, Jesus is that we MUST leave good heritance to our Children to the next 10th generation. God allowed you to accomplished wealth creation for your children.

I am sure you are now seated with our Lord, Jesus in PEACE, but your duty is not COMPLETED because she who leaves this earth with young children will NOT SLEEP until she knows are CHILDREN have achieved ALL that she HOPED for them in her life time.

Therefore, ALL friends and family - This is to you all "Mo - ji - so - la" now have the POWER to KNOW ALL THINGS and SEE ALL THINGS, you all now have DIVINE OPPORTUNITY to love and care for her children the way you all know she loved them and cared for them.

REST WITH OUR LORD JESUS, still we all meet again, amen.

"I just had to leave a note...

"Aunty Moji! gone ke?! somebody please wake me up!"

That is the general reaction...the shock and disbelief of your passing is palpable. Ha aunty! it was too soon now. Ba se so ko yi! what about my wedding? Adebusola's own too! You specifically said i would decorate Adebusola's engagement baskets like the ones i usually do for your clients (friends and acquaintances) you said i had better start getting better ideas as Adebusola's must be FANTASTIC! "Won a gba" those were your words...

I will miss your gists (no more igbosere stop bys for me now :( *sigh*), it didn't matter i am your niece. you drew me close. you drew us brother and i, you took us as your children too!

i will miss your humor, you even heard "pakuru mo" before me...i still remember the glint in your eyes when you sang it for me in your chambers...ha!

i will miss your bright smile, you accepted any gift i gave you no matter how small. i remember how you relished the goodies basket i made for you...the gurudi, chinchin, chukchuk, etc and now even the one i made special with scented candle and bath salt with ankara said "jo ba mi toju e, ma gba ti ba de" meaning you would collect when you return. but u never did

i will miss your motherly advice and straight talk.... you told me "love is not blind o" "you must wear goggles" and "even magnifying glass if required" (please read in yoruba translation)

you taught me how to be a to dress, how to comport myself. you showed me how to be a business woman, to be enterprising, how to present myself. you showed me how to step up my game.

Aunty Moji o! you will forever be in my heart. my mentor, my friend, my mother...heaven has certainly gained an angel. sun re o!

i dedicate this song to your memory "i can only imagine" by casting crown"

"Sis Moji my best in-law with a heart of gold, was an awesome, selfless and wonderful  person.It's so unfortunate, that life had to part us this way. Am still in total shock, to my bones on how to still accept this heartfelt news. My ride and companion to all the Fajemisin functions. In that short while I can say, we were close but I think back now it was all for a reason we crossed each others part. My Sister, Bunmi kuku worked under you at the Magistrate  Court Yaba and  kept on giving gists about this Magistrate that likes her so much and little did we know our parts wld cross.You were so hilarious, loving the latest Yoruba music that came out and wanting to buy to take to the kids in England.The first time I heard ja misi was from you and ii said Sis Moj  haaaa and then  you went jamisi Jo. I would miss my butter scotch candy. Adieu Sis Moj would miss u so dearly. i woke up the early morning of Saturday the 23rd calling your Mtn no and it kept on ringing, then I was saying to myself Sis Moj pick up this phone now, just for me to get a call 7hrs later. Would miss all your gists. Adieu Sis Moj I would miss you so dearly. I take solace that you are having an eternal rest in peace. So sad you left this way. Adieu! Adieu! Adieu!. The creator of heavens and earth understands better. I can't believe I got to write this tribute about you.Gists on how you would plan Adebusola's wedding and other plans . Hummmmmmm.Continue to rest in perfect peace as you take thy holy rest. My love forever Tosin Somolu Fajemisin."

"Aunty I remember clearly the last time I saw you on this earth. We were on our way leaving the house, trying to catch the last leaving train of the night. I walked into the living room to say my good byes where you sat alone on the chair opposite the door. You smiled at me, and I smiled back. You gathered the strength to say the words "bye Derin" and now I find myself trying to summon that same strength to accept them. It is truly unfortunate that you were taken from us so early but another thing I've brought myself to understand and accept is that God truly knows best. You are in a better place right now and that is all the comfort we need. So rest in peace my dear Aunty Moji, your memory is embedded in our hearts forever. Your loving niece, Derin."

"Tribute to my dear sister

I cant believe I am having to write this tribute, the last thing you said to me was Toun don’t worry I will be fine, we will celebrate Mosope’s wedding together. You had such a strong faith even thou I knew you were doing all you could to cover all you were going through.
In my head you have travelled on one of your long trips and in my heart I will cherish every precious moment we had together, I will miss your wit, your sarcasm, your Yoruba proverbs and your African magic tales
I am proud of the sound training you gave your children and I have no doubt that your children will excel and make you proud.

"Gone Too Soon - Mojisola

If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again".

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

I will always cherish the beautiful memories in Hillcrest Court, Kilburn and Dean Road, Willesden Green with the Aunty Soji's , Aunty Lola's, and all of us. hmmmm, good old days.

Moji you were so elegant, so stylish, so full of life, and that your smile- was worth a thousand words , you won that battle with flying colours and God has another angel.

Rest In Peace

"What can I say, what can I do oh Lord, You’re too much for me….

MOJI SI OLA!!!!!!!!

I have had to painfully accept your demise. Who am I to question God. I do not understand all things but God understands. O ye Olorun.

Mojisola you were full of hope to the very end. You had strong faith. Infact you wrote in your bible “stuborn faith”,  “aggressive faith”. I am exceedingly grateful to God for the opportunity to spend the last month of your life with you in Germany.

It is one of the best month of my life. I will forever treasure the moments we shared together, the laughters, gists, holding hands together, massaging your whole body especially your feet (which you always requested as a treat). You always call me ‘sister mi flo’ (as in Florence Nightingale). I wish I had done more…laughed more, massaged you more, kissed your forehead more, held your hands more, hugged you more… if I new this were the last moments we will share together.

The bible says in all things we should give God thanks. That is His will concerning us. I thank God that we were able to pour out our hearts…I thank God for emotional healing, for restoration and rebuilding relationships. I thank God for allowing you to live to see your 49th birthday and for allowing me to share it with you. You requested that the only gift you wanted for your birthday was to worship and thank God on your behalf. A 24 hour worship chain was set up for that purpose. From 12 midnight March 12th  to 12midnight, March 13th. Your family and friends all over the world joined you to give God a 24 hour worship He so deserves. I believe strongly that God accepted our Worship and Thanksgiving on your behalf. It came to Him as a sweet smelling savor.

Mojisola I take solace in the fact, that your spirit and soul is with the Lord, That you have no more pain, no more struggles…You are at peace with your maker. Rejoicing and joining the heavenly hosts in worshiping God. (what you love doing). I will always miss you and I know that God will ensure that your children will be taken care of. They will not suffer. God has His hands upon them. He has His hands wrapped around them. They will grow up, graduate from university, get married, have children, they will fulfill their purpose. Build on the legacy to left behind in Jesus name.

Mojisola may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

Your Loving Sister
Denrele Okuboyejo (aka Sis mi Flo)"
