DUDU LIVES ON

It is still unbelievable that you are gone. I haven't been able to appropriately string words together to pen a befitting Tribute to a bridge builder, calm but firm personality with a LISTENING EAR.
He was never perfect like every human but always striving to achieve perfection little wonder he could multi-task( He was a Captain , Course Officer, House& Bar Officer , Competition Secretary, PRO and an Organizer per excellence all rolled into one. For him success of every endeavour is the end that justifies the means perhaps he could be misunderstood if u are either complacent or lethargic in keying into his drive for success.
Despite his principled stand he was receptive to superior argument and quality advice.
I learnt a lot under him as the Hon Secretary under his leadership as the Captain of Ibadan Golf Club.
His Patience and Endurance even in the heat of extreme provocation is a peculiar Character trait that is absolutely rare in most persons l have related with.
Your leadership attribute of stick and carrot approach is another pointer of your matured conflict resolution techniques which you brought to bear while serving as Captain of Ibadan Golf Club.
Your support of my Captainship at Tiger Golf Club cannot be quantified.
Indeed the new vista of development taking place in Tiger Golf Club has the fingerprints of your benevolent leadership of Ibadan Golf Club.
You attended all Tournaments at Tiger Golf Club and also played our weekly kitties severally.
It was a personal loss to myself and my wife while the whole Tiger Golf Club lost a Friend and a brother in you.
I am however encouraged by the fact that you not only left several legacies behind but u also bequeathed an enduring human legacy in SEGUN IBIRONKE whose exploits as Golfer will soon be nationally celebrated.
On behalf of the General Officer Commanding 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, the Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and the esteemed members of Tiger Golf Club , we once again commiserate with the immediate family of our beloved Brother, members of our dear Sister Club IBADAN GOLF CLUB, the entire Golfing Community and his friends and we'll wishers.
Indeed Dudu lives On!!!!!!

Uncle D as we used to call you. The news of your death came to me as a rude shock, but I take solace in the fact that you may have gone, but your legacies will live forever. You bridge a gap in my life when it was needed most. May you rest eternally with the Lord. I pray that the family and love ones you left behind will have the strength to bear the loss. Adieu Uncle 'D'.

 Very sad news. Dudu was always integral part of the golf community who I looked up to and respected greatly. His dry sense of humor and sharp one liners always made me smile. He will be greatly missed. RIP.

It's still like a dream to me since the very day I learnt about your demise on one of the social media platforms. I am yet to come to terms with the fact that, the vivacious, ever smiling Dudu Heritage has crossed to the great beyond just like that. Who am I to question God? You indeed came, you saw and definitely conquered! You played your part so well both on the golf course and off the course.
I still hold fond memories of you when we saw at the last Awards Ceremony organized by Ibadan Golf Club for supporters and Friends of the Club and you reached out to me and said, "hope we have done well? Your organization has indeed been a very consistent sponsor to us" I smiled and hugged you and replied, yes sir, "you have indeed done well." Maybe, if I had known that, that was going to be our last physical contact, I would have taken more time to hug that Teddy Bear-like frame of yours. Adieu, my Egbon, you will surely be missed by all. My prayer is that the good Lord will continue to protect and guide those of us you have left behind and may your family members find consolation in the fact that heaven has gained another Angel and that, you are resting in the Bosom of the Lord. Goodnight, Oladiran Ishola Ibironke.

Dudu!!!
You made my joining IGC so easy as the Captain after a long wait and delay.
You endeared yourself to me in more ways I could not recount.
You represent what a gentleman is. I will miss your broad smile.
May God comfort all the families (including Golfers) left behind.

his Life

PROFILE OF OLADIRAN ISHOLA IBIRONKE (Dudu Heritage)

Oladiran Ishola Ibironke was a popular music promoter and a private businessman until his demise on 12th September, 2021.  He was from Ilesha, Osun State. He had his early life in Nigeria and his university education in London and the United States of America. But all his life, he had been an entrepreneur. 
He was the CEO of Dudu Heritage, a music promotions company which is the home of African culture, entertainments and arts. Dudu Heritage, as he was fondly called, was a golfer, a contractor, a family man, a socialite, and a music lover. Through his music promotions company, he raised considerable number of music artistes to stardom. Entertainment to him was like a passion and that was what gave him the prominence he enjoyed.
Apart from entertainment, he was also involved in publishing, events management, ICT networking, and contracting. He was the publisher of the magazine called Society Facts. Until his death, he was the Captain of Ibadan Golf Club. Prior to his becoming the Captain of the club, he had garnered experience from various captains under whom he had served. He also served as the second vice-captain before becoming the captain. During the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, he was one of the individuals who lent their voices to making sure the general public was well sensitised about the deadly virus. It was during his tenure as the Captain of Ibadan Golf Club that members were vaccinated.
Dudu Heritage was married to Olusola Oyefeso of the popular Oyefeso family from Ijebu Ode and popular Nollywood actress, Abimbola Oshin; they were blessed with wonderful children.  Though quite popular and sociable, Ola was reserved and detested unnecessary noise. He was a suave, cool and amiable man. He died at the age of 59. He left memorable legacy in the Nigerian entertainment industry and the Ibadan Golf Club, where he served as the Captain till death came calling.

May his soul rest in perfect peace!
