Daddy, we missed you. Daddy Adekeye was a very nice father, grandfather and friend. I use to wonder if he and his wife had known my mum for years with the way they relate. I believe you’re in a better place. Till we meet in glory, sleep on Abiamo tootò

I called Late Pharm Adekeye Daddy because of his family believes and his authenticity. I met him and his beautiful wife in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA about 5 years ago. He was so loving, very affectionate and a loving daddy to his beautiful daughter Bimpe who happened to be my sister -in -Christ. He was a great grand father to Emmanuel and Wale. Daddy has been and will always remain a beacon of light for us , guiding us through the treacherous passage of life. We missed you and May your soul rest in perfect peace.
