I received the rude shocking news of your demise through your beloved Young Girl (wife) at the dawn of 6th March 2021!
I wished it was a dream or hallucination, but Alas! It was a reality!
The memories of our moments together during secondary school days at Government College Ibadan, and the little time shared when we reconnected at the alumni floods my heart.
You were an irresistible jolly fellow, always bubbly and fun to be with!
My heart aches and uncontrollable tears flows down as I watched your little son cry profusely as you were committed to the mother earth!
Hmmm, may your gentle soul continue to find repose and succor in the bosom of your Creator. May the good Lord keep and increase the family you left behind.

Good Night Jide (A.K.A Baba 70)

Dear Jide , this is a very sad moment for me. Death took you at your prime but we found consolation that you are in a better place. I pray God will be with your dear wife and take care of the children that you left behind.

Rest on BABA 70.

Jide I knew to be the life of the party, always did his best to ensure everyone was happy at any event. He was always ready to be a part of history making within the set and a merry chap he was. It's way too soon to have said good bye but I know we will meet again brother. Till then you will always be remembered.

Dear Lord, bless the family left behind by this departed soul. Grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. So, this is how a man's journey ends? I met Jide only last week via Whatsapp when he called to request for my service. I have been out of town and we were to meet on Saturday 6th March to finalize the scope of his requirements. He still called on the 5th to confirm the meeting but I never heard from him again, only to see this!!!
Death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? It is well. Rest in Peace. Waoh! He was just starting life. May God bless us all with longevity in prosperity.

"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.
They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love."

It's been a great shock even till now,with tears in my eyes and a broken heart, I find it unbelievable your passing unto Glory because it's too early my brother. To get a sleep at night,all that comes to my mind is just you with the words (so this is it).
May God Almighty comfort your family, provide for your family and keep them. You're a lovely brother,I have no regret knowing you. Brother rest on and be at peace.

Jide, the news of your sudden death came as a rude shock, and I m still gutted as I write. You had a colourful and bubbly personality. Somehow, you were able to connect to folks across without much ado.

You are in a better place now. Rest on brother, rest well.

Didn't know you are leaving us soon and early,when we are planning hw to work on a project together some months back with your promise that 2021 will be a great year for us.

I pray to God Almighty to forgive you,be with the family you left behind nd friends.

Will surely miss you, your my brother.

I remember Jide Adeniji back in Government College Ibadan days with his very close pal, Rasheed Epe (also of blessed memory). He was a lively young boy at the time. When I joined the set alumni, we linked up again after about 13 years of leaving secondary school, and life as an adult was quite different because we had all matured. His passion for the alumni association was unflinching.

Recently after one of our Ibadan Chapter meetings, he spoke so fondly about his late friend, Rasheed Epe, and sounded like he really missed him; little did we know it would soon be his turn to be spoken about in the past tense and missed because he was no more.

Jide, your life was snuffed out of you by the cold hands of death at your prime. It is sad, it is unfortunate, but we cannot hassle with God.

I pray that God supports your family in your absence.

Adieu, my friend and brother!

Rest in the bosom of the lord.
