I believe not in wishing the winged ones a happy birthday.

For me, every time I see you in my mind or thoughts or auntie's face, I remember you.

Ewuolaedubo, Omoloni I hope your babies won't see it as an affront.

Rest on soldier, rest in peace.

It is two years already. Time thus fly! There's no need for an if anymore, the curtain has been drawn. Have you seen your brother, Uncle Ayo?
There were many things left unsaid, and many an emotion left unexpressed.
The chasm could have festered beyond a gorge or the pain could have been reversed but in all, when I remember you, the ONLY thing that crosses my mind is the look on her face when I came in that night.
Thank you for that lesson, it will live with me forever.

What shall I call you? Rotimi Akinyemi or Iba Sayo? The former wrapped up your essence like a label. You were many things to many people, a man of many parts.

Most saturday nights tell my sunday mornings you are gone. The few times we conversed opened my eyes to the fraility of our humanity, and when you passed away, a library disappeared with you.

Your attitude towards responsibility was excellent. You were contented with whatever you had. You were a father with the milk of a mother's compassion, you loved your own with their faults unabashedly.

I sing you like a song anytime your thoughts whoosh through me. I break your name in syllables till I find my way past that gully it has sunk in my heart: Ro/Ti/Mi A/Kin/Ye/Mi, I/Ba/ Sa/Yo. Each syllable duly stressed.

Never knew you will travel out this early, never knew that was the last time I would see you. Perhaps I would have stayed patiently while you finish your conversation with Uncle Felix. Perhaps I could have waited the rest of the night just looking at your face as your got busy with that important job you do.

I never got to write you a tribute. Even if I had, what would I have written? That your love is patient. That your patience roars in the lines on your face. Imagine me writing as if you are still here. Somehow, I have come to the realization that everything about you can't be in the past. At least you still fetch gallons off your sisters' faces.

I am glad our paths truly crossed. And I am grateful for everything Uncle.

ROTIMI YOU ARE FOR EVER LOVED and MISSED.

Almost 6 months ago you left to gain your peace and enjoy at God's Bosom in Paradise. But my eyes have refused to stop shedding tears knowing and remembering the lose of the closeness we shared together. There's no òne else to call almost 10 times daily to share and discuss issues. No one to laugh with over Nigeria situation. Your analysis always on point. My prayers now is for the Almighty to give me the heart and strength to enable me shout Hallelujah. To praise Him more with open hands and gladness in my soul and body,

Rotimi, Ewuoladubo, Sun 're. Miss you, miss your jokes. Good night my Aburo.

THE EXIT OF THE LORD'S SERVANT - RWA, 1954-2017

The man I knew, a trusted leader/servant, of his family.
As a kid, he was opportune to sojourn in Ibadan, the city that was never conquered by any war. He was at the prestigious "Children Home School", founded by mama Ogunlesi. Unfortunately, I could not meet him then. Being the son of a committed friend of the late sage, Awo & his party, "Non-fee-paying-Council School was just good for me." "Abi o".

When his siblings, particularly the younger ones have a matter in his care, they "go to bed" and await his "direction". Sorry, this, would be, no more.
Very little, I knew of him, because I may not boast of any intimacy. However, from my little personal experiences, and the opinion of my brothers/sisters-in-law, I based my evaluation. This, I think is enough "vox pop".without pretences.
That little of him, known to me, would be just enough to turn around a world like the one I live in, if only 25% of its inhabitants could be so trusted.

I met this man almost 4 decades ago as an elder brother to a lady I admired. Trust, a bloody "arokian", sojourning in Lagos, I could not only be satisfied with a presentable lady, but one from a respectable background. This man, an appreciable member of their respectable family, could be seen as a good ambassador of Bami-David's family. I prayed, (though yet to be reborn) concerning the young girl, but also considered many facts, including the character of the kinds of late "uncle Yo". Apologies to Mr Wale Akinsehinwa, his affectionate nephew.

We never really had any other thing in common, but I could bet, he approved of my humble self, as a suitor worthy of consideration. If he had said NO to the ears of my "babe", then the likelihood of having a wife that the Olokos mistook as one of their own daughters might have been a mirage.

No thanks, to the then NEPA. Some 35years ago, on a certan day, the then young man, had to get up around 4am to iron his shirts, when he was awoken by the shout of "upNEPA". Not a few, wonder, if NEPA was really up. At that pretty morning hour, the young dad of pretty Sayo, now Mrs Alonge, peeped out of his window. He saw his well parked "tear rubber" Peugeot 504 L.This car, daily, "ferried" him to & fro NNPC HQ, Falomo, Ikoyi. Unfortunately, on finally rising up at about 6am, the elitist "mobility" of that age, was, to-be-seen-no-more. The nasty boys have done their worst. This man took the shock very calmly. Oh, he had to jump into taxi for a few weeks again.

Watching him from a distance, I was never in a position to advise him on personal issues but I discovered that he took similar stands as I would have in similar situations.

An appreciably handsome man, he would easily be selected, Mr "Nigeria of YEMAJA STREET".

In his "regalia" as a dutiful warden at "Our Saviour Anglican Church TBS, Lagos", you would feel like coming to serve.

My dear sister, 'Dewola, pretty Sayo, "Prof" & "Pinky", you would never be consoled enough by man, but our Lord Jesus Christ. And this, He would do. Amen.
The Lord's servant - RWA, "Ewuoladubo" omo bami David, omo manager, omo Obateru, continue to rest in peace, till the resurrection morning.
