Osa,
You were laid to rest yesterday so it has finally dawned on me that it is true - You have gone to be with the lord.

My brother, you should have waited a little longer. Why did you have to leave so soon? You were a courageous young man, full of life and you gave many hope.
You were fun to be with. Oh...I will miss your contagious smile. I will miss the times we shared lunch at the staff canteen and took out time to relax and discuss almost any thing.
You were one person I shared my feelings with because with you, i never feared any form of betrayal .

I will take solace in the lord and in the fact that though your role was short, yet you played it very well on this stage that is called LIFE. Everyone had something nice to say about you. You were truly a hero.

Sleep on my dear brother and friend until resurrection morning when we shall meet to part no more.

I can’t believe I will not see you anymore after my last day at work. Hearing about your demise left me with nothing but a rude shock, not with the chats and talks we had even after I left the organization.

Remembering those old moments and memories we shared at work and even while we travelled around and out of the country on the tour of duty.

These moments cannot be forgotten. You’ve left your fingerprints behind in the sand of time

Some stars shine so brightly, they are never dull. Their lights shine all over our lives just as yours had done

I know I can’t see you no more now but till that day where we shall all laugh again

My mind knows that you are in a better place where there is no pain. My heart and prayers for your wife, babies and family.

I thank God for your life and I pray God grants you eternal rest

Sleep on bro
Posted by Olaoluwa Giwa on March 23, 2021
Just like a Vapor,you are no more, but your memory will never leave us as you have become a part of our everyday life

Once it is time to send my report every morning, you are always sighted as your name pop up being my direct boss and supervisor

It still feels like a dream that you are dead hmmmmm.........

What a life, what a life where you are alive in the morning, and be gone at noon

What a life, what a life where all you need to leave behind is a legacy, and Nothing is going with you, not even your loved ones

Thanks for all your impact in me, thanks for all the teaching, Thanks for all the training.

May your soul rest in peace sir.

Mr Osa,

You were one diligent detailed professional. Your push for excellence and development of ur subordinates was one to admire.

One has to be toes always at work cos u know if Mr Osa burst you, you r finished, but it was all for our own good.

Outside work you are fun. I remember meeting you a few times at the Head office gym, still remember your mad dance steps at our 2020 strategic meeting after party. So full of life, vibrant.

We will forever miss u big man.
Rest in peace with your creator boss.

words cannot express my grief but God's will supersedes all.
The Pol.science class of 99 will forever cherish our shared memories.
Rest on in the Lord

You exuded so much Vibrancy, full of life and good humour.

You always had a ready joke, and a laughter inducing line.

In my early days on the job, while I still struggled with certain vitals, you gave me pointers and guidelines that I still use till date.

You left too soon and too early. Shocked can not fully describe how I felt and still feel at your demise.

Sail on big Man!

Pray you find rest eternal in the Lord’s bosom., and may the good Lord grant your dear and loved ones the strength and fortitude to bear your loss and forge on, Amen!!!

Mr. Osa,
I am yet to get over the shock and heartfelt pain that came with the news of your sudden demise.
Unbelievable, even till now.
I couldn't have imagined work without your coaching, guidance, corrections, and trainings.

You're simply exceptional GM.
You are an epitome of Hardwork, Intelligence and Dedication.
You're a unique boss in your own class.

Thank you #OSAEMOKPAE#GMSUNDRYFOODSLTDQSR#MYCOACH# for all you stood for.

You live on.........still unbelievable.

Rest in peace
May God comfort your family.

It's been years since i last saw you but it seems like yesterday , you once came to my parents house with your mum and we all laughed and joked but today you are no longer with us , we give glory to God for the life you shared with us and will greatly remember your cheerful smile . Rest on in the Lord brother . .

A friend and colleague
You were like a brother to me.
We advised each other and brainstormed together.
We understood one another and always were there for each other.
I still stare at your desk with hope to see you.
You have gone to our Creator but your imprint remain fresh in my mind.
You are gone but your memories will live on in my heart.
May God have mercy on your soul and bless you even in death.
May God be with your family and loved ones.

You will always be remembered
Rest on my brother,friend and colleague.
Rest on.

I am completely gutted! It seems like yesterday that we caught up at Beer Barn, November last year in PH. We laughed and reminisced about the good old days in UNIBEN, the competitive pool matches, lifting weights and fun we had at parties. You still had that crazy sense of humour that always cracked me and the rest of the fellas up. We christened you "Johnny Bravo" Always full of life and good cheer. Hmmm. This is a very bitter pill to swallow but God knows best.

Rest In Peace Osa. We miss you bro
Posted by Caleb Abudu on March 16, 2021
You were always composed and a voice of reason. Ever accommodating, very humble and approachable. I thank God for your life because you are in a better place now. The baton is left with us who are still living to live an examplary life for those around us. God bless and increase your family. We will miss you dearly.

You were always very happy. Correct guy to to the bone. Right from year one when we met, we clicked. My earliest fashion consultant, helped me buy some baffs at good prices,( My first football Jersey(Bayern))...we battled from dreams to jowitz,to ekenhuan, to blue edge, snooker table to snooker table. I remember the last time we saw, snooker table at Beer barn, even after many years it's always pleasant interacting with you. You will be sure missed. God be with you till we all see again. May God console the widow you left behind , protect the children you left behind. God grant them comfort and fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. May Your soul find rest
Posted by Olatunde Akin-Oluyomi on March 16, 2021
Knowing you was an honour. You were so kind, friendly and humble that it was easy to feel comfortable in the presence of an accomplished leader like you.

I pray that you find rest in the bosom of the Lord and that the Lord consoles your family and strengthens them to carry on your great legacy.

RIP Osa

Ossa we go wey back to our first year in uniben we initially battled at various pool tables till we became neighbours and eventually friends, with all these very vivid memories and the fact that you had gotten to be a fixture at the beer barn pool table your death shocked me to the core of my being. you were a funny mischievious fellow who always cracked me up and i know that whenever thoughts of you cross my mind i will have a sheepish grin on my face. Rest on great guy you will be missed

My brother from another country! It was a pleasure knowing you . We started as business colleagues but it became stronger and we became best of friends. The soft well spoken tone on the other side of the phone will be missed. Truly, we only leave once . D”yie

Bros sincerely speaking if someone had told me I will be writing ur tribute this early in my life , I would have said God forbid. Am still in tears and lost for words to actually accept the fact that you are no more with me physically . You were so full of life that i never saw your death coming this early.
I wish I could turn back the hands of time or give something for you to return back to me i will give without hesitation .
I will forever miss you BROS because you were the only brother I had and I looked up to you for so many things.
Thank you for all the LOVE ,CARE, SUPPORT and ADVISE you gave me while on earth I will always cherish them for ever.
I will take solace from fact that you are with God now and only Him knows why he called you home on the 25th of febuary 2021.
You will always leave and remain in my heart for ever BROS and nothing can ever take that from me.
Till will meet again BROS rest in perfect peace

The news of your demise was and still a shock to me.
Your push and drive has brought me this far in the system. I learnt so much from you even till the last Tuesday you spent on earth before you left us on the Thursday.
I remember the day you told me at Agip store then as an assistant, "Joe I saw something in you and will squeeze you till your full potentials is out", and you kept to your words.
You are a goal getter and a true definition of a result oriented person.
Words are not enough to describe the impact of your short stay on earth.
Mr. Osa, you have left an indelible foot prints in my mind and Sundry foods at large.
May your soul find peace in the after life.

Adieu Mr. Osa

Mr. Osa, I am one of those who admire your Leadership style alot.....
My knowledge as a Restaurateur comes from your wealth of coaching, corrections and trainings.
You were a true definition of a resilient, committed and hardworking Boss.
Your death came as a shock to all of us and still hard to believe.
Our consolation is that You will find Peace in the sight of Our Supreme Creator.
Rest On Sir.
You will be greatly Missed.

Adieu Osa
You were a very ebullient person and your smile and chuckles were always memorable. You were the last person I spoke with Wednesday evening, making plans for a 10 am meeting on Thursday, only to hear of your demise.
Your passing was really hard to take, but we cannot question God.
So long Brother and I pray God to grant the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
Rest in Power Osa.
Posted by Amara Okoronkwo on March 13, 2021
Mr Osa,
I still find it very difficult to believe you are no more. Your push at work is worth emulating. You were a mix of everything.You were dogged ,yet very friendly. I still wonder if we will ever find a replacement. We lost an intelligent soul. Rest on Boss, you will be greatly missed !!
This really hurts!!!
Posted by Kingsley Ohanele on March 13, 2021
Osas,the shock is yet to wear off. Was with you and Tajudeen that Tuesday night at Beer Barn. Had to leave early so left my game for TJ who was closest to me then but when you insisted on playing my game,I jokingly told you and TJ to sort yourselves out. Little did I know that was the last time I was to see you! God's speed and Eternal peace,my friend.
Posted by gloria uche on March 13, 2021
Oh death where is thy sting, why cut off a vibrant life that has potentials and intellect that is yet to be harnessed, a greatness that is yet to manifest
Mr Osa I may not be close to you when you were alive but I always admire your prowess on the job
I can only pray for God to grant your family the fortitude to bear this great loss and accept your soul
Sleep peacefully sir
It is well
Posted by Tajudeen Adeniji on March 13, 2021
Osa! Oh! Dear friend. It is sad you are no more. I can never forget the last moment we shared. We were both dragging to collect Elder's game on Tuesday and you gave it to me, we played snooker together, you left and waved me good night and that was the last good night I heard from you. On Wednesday you didn't come out and on Thursday you slept. Eternal sleep. Osa, "Good night". Sleep tight. It is painful but God knows best.
Posted by Ugo and Amaka Uzu on March 13, 2021
Dear Osa,

You were so many things to us.

As a brother in law you were always so gentle, kind hearted, wanting to create peace and make everyone around you happy. Your gentle laughter was a joy to see. Your cooking was always on point and so delicious. Your love for trying out different cuisines and the creativity you brought to your work was a joy to watch and emulate.

As a husband to our sister, we saw the love you both shared for each other. You were a perfect balance for her. You have brought so much joy to her and have left wonderful fun memories which she will cherish always. We pray the good Lord will give her comfort and strength to bear you leaving so soon.

As a father, you have shown so much love and affection towards your beautiful girls. Seeing you in your girls, will give us all courage knowing that you are still alive in their hearts.

You were not only a brother-in-law, you were a true friend. A rare person that you want to be with when it’s time for groove but also when times are tough. You loved all aspects of life and we loved you for it.

Loss comes in many forms in this life but yours is especially hard to take. We will miss you so much Osa and we will always remember you in our hearts.

Good bye dearest brother and may your gentle soul rest in peace with the Lord.
Posted by Olutola Lola on March 13, 2021
Knowing Osa is knowing a selfless, humble & caring human always willing & ready to provide advice and clear perspectives on issues.

With long days on the job, colleagues usually become a second family. Working with Osa for the past 15yrs had turned the space from that of colleague to a beloved friend & brother. I can’t but thank God for making our path cross as you sure had been a huge encouragement & a chief adviser. His free spiritedness is next to none & so contagious even from afar

Seeing you few hours before your demise makes it tough to accept the loss because one minute you were sunshine, light & life and the next you are no more but then, memories of you can never be taken away as you sure live on, you live dear Ore

You cannot be summarized in words. I celebrate your life dear friend and I thank my God every time I remember you.

Posted by Chidubem Enunwa on March 12, 2021
Osa,
When the news got to me, I literally cried for hours. You were not just a friend, you were a brother.
We confided in each other. We played lawn tennis 3 times a week, talked about investments, building projects and future projects.
I remember our last match, even though you won me on the court, I promised you to woop you the next day as I was prepared to prove a point on who was a better player.
Since you left this wicked world, I have not been able to step foot into that lawn tennis court again. I got so scared at how life could be so short and cruel to take you away so sudden.
My prayer is that God will welcome you into his Kingdom with love.
I love you so much my brother. You will never be forgotten.
Sleep on Osa. God bless your soul. AMEN
Posted by Deborah Emokpae on March 12, 2021
Brother Osamudiamen, I honestly haven’t come to terms with your demise.

Brother you are the best sibling anyone could ever ask for. Your death took me by surprise.

You always push me to be the best version of myself. You were so hardworking and so full of life.

Thank you for playing such a significant role in my life. You will never be forgotten.

Rest In Peace my awesome brother
Posted by Ulari Nwaogazie on March 12, 2021
Life as we know it can be so happy but yet brings painful moments such as that I experienced when I heard of your death. You were a fantastic husband and awesome daddy. I will miss your delicacies and your delicious cooking. You always lent your support, advisory and always asking of my well being from Ifeoma. Your smiles always elevated any space you were in. You lived and surely added so much value to all that knew you. Rest on Osa! May your memory live on.We will do our best to look after your loved ones.

So many questions in my heart. It is with deep pain I’m writing this , who would have thought a time like this will come . Your death came like a shock to me I couldn’t wrap my head around it i still can’t.

Life hmmmm!!! this is too much to bear. Brother Osamudiamen, you radiated so much love, to know you is to love you. No one can stay upset with you for long .

I’m so blessed to have known you personally.

You were an advocate of peace, soft spoken, and very passionate about your job .you were a huge blessing to not just your immediate family, but to the the world at large.

May the Holy Spirit give us the strength and courage to carry on.

Keep resting brother till we meet to path no more.

God will continue to take care of the family you self behind. RIP brother.
