It is with great sadness that I mourn the passing of Chief Mrs Sophia Adeyinka Otegbayo. She was a kind, generous, and loving woman who touched the lives of so many people. I will never forget the kindness and generosity she showed me when I was a young boy.

I was a starry-eyed 11-year-old when I got admission to Federal Government College Kaduna. I was far away from home and family, and I was scared and lonely. My late father, Rufus Oyekola Okanlawon, handed me over to Chief Otegbayo as a guardian and she and her husband welcomed me into her home with open arms.

Chief Otegbayo was like a second mother to me. She took care of me and was always there for me, no matter what. I will never forget the delicious hot meals she would prepare for me whenever I visited. She was also not one to miss the opportunity of blessing me monetarily.

Mama was a kind, generous, and loving woman who made a difference in the lives of so many people. I will never forget her, and I will always be grateful for the time I had with her.

May her soul rest in peace.

Rest In Peace Mama Otegbayo

June 1
Mama,
It always brings a smile to my face when I remember our days together at the Wesley
Methodist Cathedral in Kaduna.
You were always quick to pull me aside to remind me of the importance of dressing to match with my spouse attire :)
You are fondly remembered!
Rest on in peace  Mama!
