Itohan, you're introduced to me by my kid sister, you baked cakes for us and we enjoyed it. You're a woman of faith, full of passion, gentle and extremely calm. You came, you saw, you fought, you won, you laid down your sword at the feet of Christ and you are resting there forever.... No more pains, no more stress or struggle. Continue to rest in His bossom till the resurrection day, when we'll all meet to part no more!
Goodnight ITOHAN!!!

IT!!!! My soft-spoken friend. My go to girl. Just a phone call away. I still can't believe it. You walked into my life and we hit it off instantly. My heart is heavy babe. It is heavy. Yellow Velvet. You labored and it paid off. Yellow Velvet is a brand and by God's grace, she shall live on and on. We talked about the big step you were about taking. We prayed for God's guidance. Alas, He led and you followed. I don't know if I'm making sense babe. I will miss you. You pushed me. You told me to keep going. You told me I had it. Babe, this breaks me. IT!!!!!!!! Na bad dream this be o. Wow!!! Your smile, the way you pay attention, your excitement when you saw the chocolate cupcakes my daughter baked, your stopover at mine and your accusations of "person no fit come your place spend small time", your love,your genuine concern....... God alone knows best. Sleep on my dear friend and sister. You are sorely missed babe. Sleep on babe. Sleep on IT!!!

Some faces we see but never interacted with one on one.
Yours was one.
That face I'd seen so regularly in most of the times I attended cake shows.
The eyes, you have a pair one can hardly forget, piercing, scrutinizing....yet with a little smile tucked in the corners of your mouth.
You glide around, quietly, silently, noting your surrounding,
At least, that's what I saw.
You seemed to me a thorough person, I would also say, a bit into herself.
But reading all I've read about you in the past few days....
Perhaps, you were also quite an extrovert.
I remember you, judging from afar.
I admired you, yet from afar.
Rest on, beautiful one.
May you find solace and peace in the bossom of the Lord.
Adieu, Itohan!

A GEM HAS GONE TO REST. GOD BLESS YOUR SWEET SOUL ITOHAN. YOU WILL BE SOURLY MISSED.
I am still in a state of shock. I remember vividly the day Itohans Aunty brought her to MixnBake many many years ago. She took almost all the classes we offered at that time.
She ofcourse traveled abroad to learn more.

I knew Itohan so well. She took many classes with us, in her early years of building her cake career. I in turn sent my upcoming staff to learn desserts from her to show my support for her training school.

It's so incredible. I remember my staff saying one lady was bad mouthing MIXNBAKE AND I was Told Itohan sprang up to support US 100%. She Was not ashamed to tell the world that she had gained and learned a lot from MixnBake and all the various classes she had benefitted from, i was so surprised Itohan did that when I was given the feedback. It's so rare to see such in the cake industry, unlike many who hide their routes in the industry now cos they are now glam. It's still a huge Shock to me. It's incredible. I am totally still in shock.
The last interaction with her i remember was her saying " Aunty you don't ask for me". I apologized.

God bless your sweet soul Itohan. You will be missed.

It's incredible. This tells us one more time that living is not forever. Let's make conscious efforts to be nice along this journey of life. Itohan was a sweet nice personality. Lets Reconcile with our creator. Hold no one in unforgivenness and grudge. Live and love as much as we can. Enjoy life perday in a healthy way on this journey on earth.

GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL ITOHAN. YOU LEFT SO EARLY. OH MY GOD!!!
MAY YOU FIND ETERNAL REST IN THE LORD.
MAY THE LORD COMFORT YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.

I can't believe am doing this now, its too early, this is not d way we planned it sis,my ever smiling, courageous, simple and smart ltohan, I can go on and on, but tears gushing out of my eyes won't let me. You were an inspiration to many, u where so passionate about baking,staving yourself of good things just to get baking equipment, u always said "yellow velvet will go places, the world will hear about you". Oh death where is thy sting? Ur teaching I will never forget, you will continue to remain in our hearts, am sure u fulfilled ur purpose, sleep well sis, till we meet to path no more. Goodnight my role model.

Av never met you but it strikes me that a beautiful young woman like you can die so quick then it's a lesson for every one. The beautiful stories that people have been saying about you is a consolation that you spent a good life. Rest on sweet angel and may God grant your family the strength to bear the loss.

Vivian........ So this is what it has come to. Am writing you a tribute........
It's being 3 days now that you've been gone and I silently pray that you will return and another chance to live out all the plans, but am reminded by the Lord that there is a time for everyone of us.
We met in 2011 just like a blind date, when you sent me a dessert class invite even though we had not met, I came all the way from kaduna and we struck it off, you became the little sister I never had.
We shared ideas on cakes and desserts, we had so much plans, I looked forward to you getting married and having kids, alas! It was not to be.
You were selfless and down to earth, every respectful, a fun to have around. I could ask you for anything and you will go out to get it down, All referrals I sent you all had lovely things to say about you and your work.
Who will search out the biggest Christmas tree for me this year. Itee!!!
Sayofunmi was seriously looking forward her 16th birthday cake you were to make for her in kaduna in September, but it will never be now.
I cannot say adieu Vivain, my tears have not stopped. Charles has held forth well for you, the wedding cake got to Ikorodu and the cake was ok..... What will happen now to Yellow Velvet,?
I miss you dearly, you live on in our hearts and I bless the Lord for giving us a gem like you, you touched lives, we will meet at the masters feet, where we will part no more.... Sleep on sis, my super sugar diva.. # fromflourtodust"

I met you for the first time last year during ICES Convention and We became friends... You were so beautiful and down to earth.
I always showcased you , your lovely works, on our platforms, I even celebrated you on your birthday last 4 months (March 3) to be precise not knowing that I will be announcing this bad news so soon. It's quite heart breaking!.
Indeed, Naija Cake Industry will miss you...
May your soul rest in peace.
And May God grant your family the fortitude to bear
This huge loss... Amen
