Mama,

It’s quite difficult to come to terms with the fact that you’ve truly left us, however, I am more delighted in the knowledge that you lived a good life. A life of impact; you raised so many children and grandchildren from biological ones, to family members and even neighbors. You were a peace maker, you loved all and treated all kind.

I cherish every moment I shared with you, from the songs and dance sessions, story telling and advice. Thank you for the love, sacrifices, care, support and everything you’ve done for us.

You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. I will be forever grateful and thankful for the gift of ‘experiencing’ you.

Rest in the bosom of the Lord!

Mama was a great person. Someone who took care of me since when I was born, Someone who took care of me and my siblings. I remember when she used to tell us stories and sing Yoruba songs for us. She was always happy with us. I love the way she used to teach me and my siblings Yoruba words. I miss the way we always walked to the gate and come back for exercise. I know that one day we miss shall meet again to part no more.

Mama, may your soul rest in peace. RIP Mama London.

It’s so unfortunate that I lost someone so close to me, MAMA LONDON (My Grandmother) who took care of me since I was born. She was always there for us. The news was so hard for me to take. Its still like a dream that my very loving grand mother is dead.
I will never forget all the stories and Yoruba songs she thought me and my siblings. I will never forget all the good times we had.
Grandma, now that you are gone your loving memory will live with us forever.
May your soul Rest in Peace

Mama mama, Abiyamo tooto…

My ever caring, ever beautiful, ever dependable and ever strong mother. I grew up to know you as both father and mother. You made me know that losing our precious father at a tender age shouldn’t be a deterrent to our success. You were always there for your children. You thought us faith, you gave us hope, you encouraged. You made me to think beyond our circumstances and made us know that there would be light at the end of the tunnel. You were beautiful in and out.

I opened your wardrobe yesterday and my eyes were filled with tears on seeing your several clothes and several items, used and unused. No, not because you’ve gone to rest but tears of joy that you lived a very good life. I am glad that you later had in abundance all the things you lacked at a point in your life. Iyami Ologe – aloso malo tana. Ever shining! I am glad because you came, you saw and you conquered. You lived to see your grandchildren and great grantchildren. You ate the fruits of your labour and you ate them in abundance for several years – till death. So glad you died in Christ.

No dull moment with you at your lifetime. How can I ever forget all your advice from my childhood? Will I ever forget your deep sense of humour, songs, family stories, mother-son quarrel, loving upbringing, love for your children and other people children, your empathy, teachings? No way! Can I ever forget all the several pet names you used to call me? Having someone like you as a mother was a real blessing to me. Can someone tell me why I will take such a mother for granted? I am so glad that I was always there for you even during your weakest point.

Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for taking care of my children right from birth as well as peaceful co-existence with my wife for several years, in which people around often wonder whether you were her mother or mine. No wonder why they were so eager to help you throughout your weak period. Thank you for being a strong pillar in our extended families and always maintaining peace. Thank you for preaching love to us ALWAYS.

You will forever live in our heart, Iyami Oluyemi Abeke, Omo Morenike Asabi, Omo Karounwi Ajani, aya Adewale. Maami, iya agbalagba, mama the mama, mama London, Omo olu nla, Omo Agbodere, Omo osun lakesan. Omo k’afopa wa k’afaje wa, kawa f’ogede gede owo wa d’ele iseri, Iseri omo oloko. Aji lala eso.

Mama was a kind of mother in-law every single person should pray to have. I was very lucky to have her. I spent 15 years with her in harmony. I never regretted having her as my mother-in-law. She nurtured all my children for me. She pampered me and all my children. She was the first to call me Mama Nifemi. She was a very respectful woman. She used to call every woman by their children names, the very moment they gave birth.

Many times, she single handedly took care of my children when sick and told me that I should focus on my job. No discrimination in her. She took me as part of her children. My children used not to feel our absence anytime my husband and I were not around once mama was around. She was forever a lover of children and my children really loved of her. Taking good care of children was part of her hubbies.

Mama, the children and I will miss your words of advice, songs, stories, proverbs and gist. Goodnight and Rest in Peace, mama rere.

Mama, you brought joy and happiness to a lot of people with your kind and loving ways.

While you lived, you touched many lifes.

Oh my dear grandmother, my best friend, my story teller and my roommate. I will really miss you. 
I will miss your stories, jokes and songs you often had with me and my brothers. We sand together and we were always having fun. I still remember a week before you passed on when I came back from school and saw you lying down on your bed with Iya Adura sitting on a chair beside you. I greeted you and your response was “agba ti de oo” then I replied and said “rara o mama, agba o ti de o. Ti e ba ti di 90 ni agba maa to de” Iya Adura was just laughing. There is no day that goes by that I don’t think of you.
Mama was a highly sophisticated woman who lived a fulfilled life and also also ate the fruit of her labours before she gave up the ghost. How I wish you were still with us.
I was so shocked and sad when my dad broke the news to me on my way from school. I asked so many questions because it felt just like a dream to me. I will forever miss you, my dear grandma. Just words can’t say how much I loved you. A loving, lovely, caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
RIP Abeke, my name sake
RIP VICTORIA OLUYEMI ADEWALE {NEE AJANI}

Mama, it's still difficult to believe that you are actually gone. You are one of the people that made my childhood memorable. I can still remember how eager I always was to come to Lagos to spend the end of year holiday, how enthusiastically you always welcomed us, how much I always enjoyed my stay, how sad I always felt whenever it was time for me to return back and how much I always looked forward to coming back. You are one of the people that made me have fond memories of Lagos.
I won't say goodbye Mama, instead I will say goodnight Mama, till we meet on that glorious resurrection morning. Ijoba orun lere onigbagbo. Keep on resting Mama. You will surely be missed. A ma pade lese Jesu. Sun re o. It has been a privilege being your first grandson.

Mama Tawośe as we fondly called you, that's the name I remember knowing you by . You were "the family" I knew for most of my toddler and childhood years. I remember you never visited without goodies for us. We always looked forward to your visits.
Hmm, time and chance... well that's life. We are indeed grateful to God for having you as a great mother and sister to our late father. You were a true blessing to the AJANI family.

Sun re o, Mama Tawośe. O digba.

Mama—my amiable and indefatigable Grandmother. It's taken everything in me to write a tribute to you because I'm still very much in the denial stage. I just can’t believe you have gone to meet your creator.

I would like to start by saying—Thank You, Mama, for every impact you have made in my life; your passion for children is like no other. Mama, thank you for taking good care of me from when I was younger till the day you were called unto glory. Thank you for teaching me how to speak Yoruba, which has helped me tremendously in life. Thank you for always keeping me entertained with your tales.
One interesting fact about you is that you had a song for everything and everyone. You were always thankful and your Yoruba praise songs really stuck to me.

I'm so grateful to have had you as a grandmother and I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world.

Mama, I miss you dearly and will forever love you.

May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace!!!

Thinking of your family, (mama) was a great mother to me and her family. Mama was a dear, sweet person that had a lot of love in her heart! She will be missed!! God be with the family at this difficult time; knowing that she is safe in the arms of Jesus. My deepest condolences. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Just from the time I knew you and from the stories my parents would tell me, I can proudly say that you were the happiest and most joyful woman I’ve ever met. Everywhere you walked, your cheerfulness lit up the room and made my day. My most memorable moment with you was when you taught me, Timi and Shewa how to count in Yoruba and sang songs for each of us. I also loved when you told us endless tales of how u cared for me as an infant.
When I first heard the news about your passing, words couldn’t describe how devastated and heartbroken I felt as one of my favourite people, who stood by me since day one was no more. Nonetheless, I can’t help but think of how lucky we all are to have had someone as wonderful as you in our lives. I will be looking forward to see you once more in paradise.

Maami, you remain indelible in our Hearts……..…..!!

With the activation of your sense of humour, proverbial and storytelling skills, you brought immense joy to all those who knew and interacted with you.
Maami, we have wished you would continue to live BUT the mortal element of humanity would not allow this to happen as ''cockroaches wish to dance and jubilate BUT the chickens will not allow them.......''.

Tears will dry, emotions will fade, but your loving memories will continue to linger on suffice it to say we take solace in the believe that you are in the bosom of the Mighty LORD awaiting resurrection.

May your loving memories continue to comfort the entire family now and, in the days ahead.

I am grateful for the wonderful life the Lord has blessed you with. My earliest memory of life has you as the central figure. You taught me my first Yoruba words, and even helped me practice whenever I say a word in English, then translated it to Yoruba. This language foundation has been priceless up till this moment.

As a child under 5-years of age, you impacted me with a lot of wisdom. You taught me that there is always a choice between love and hate, peace and conflict, friendship and enmity, and always encouraged me to choose the positive side of things. Thank you for teaching me how to cook, how to wash my clothes, and always being a good shoulder to lean on in all situations. Even when we were miles apart, I still enjoyed the chats we had through phone calls and video calls. You kept singing those poetic songs, and they sounded as evergreen as the first day I heard them.

It really hurts to lose you, but I am happy you are free of pain and the fragility of life.

Sleep well. Rest well.

My Aunty my Mama Deola. Continue to rest in peace. You have lived a good life you have seen your children's children. Thank you for standing by my Mum all those years ago as best as you can. May the Good Lord forgive you any transgression and welcome you into the fold of the beloved in heaven.

Another big tree in the Adewale family has fallen! 
Mama we thank God for your life. The legacies you left behind will continue to speak. We remember your indiscriminate love and caring for us all as your children. You fought the good fight, you conquered, and you won. 
I still remember your love for drinking very hot and steamy tea, not just in a tea cup but in a big bowl! That makes me a hot tea drinker as well today.
Mama we love you, but we know your maker (God) love you more than us. Your good memories will continue to live with us. Good night until the resurrection day.

I have endless love towards my beautiful grandma. She had such a kind heart with a lot of intelligence, that anyone could learn from. After hearing about her death, my mood dropped drastically. Her death was difficult to take in. It was a hard pill to swallow but on the bright side, I am ever grateful for the times I spent with her.
Her beautiful smile gave light to the family and there is nothing I could change about it. Back when I was a baby, she took good care of me and left no stone unturned.

Grandma taught me to speak in Yoruba and sang cheerful songs to me that brought nothing but joy and lifted my spirit. I remember the days when she used to accompany me to school when I was a little boy in my youth. That goes to show her love that she also had for me. Grandma was my great companion. I couldn't have wished for a better grandma.
May she rest in peace and soon be resurrected on paradise earth.

Tribute to Mama
Adieu mama, grandma and great grandma. You loved everyone around you and wanted them to shine. You were a rare gem. You were a family-builder indeed.
You were strong when last I visited you in May and we discussed at length, not knowing the time was drawing nearer. I cannot forget the nick name you gave me (Ajilaran). You are special in every way. We will miss you but your memories linger on.
Rest in Peace mama

It's rather unfortunate that there is no reincarnation. I would have loved to come to this world again through you.
How do you describe a mother that is so loving and caring that she can read into you and see those unspoken words and respond with so much amazing love instead of scolding you like most mothers would?
By the grace of God, I have the privilege to score many firsts with you.
I am your first child. My birth changed your status to a Mother.
I have the privilege to give you your first granddaughter, Adewunmi. Also, the privilege to give you your first grandson, Tunde. Your first great grandson, Adekitan and first great granddaughter, Victoria are from me. What a privilege!
My numerous offsprings will miss u. I will miss your timely words of advice and deep understanding when others seem not to understand me.
My joy is that you rested in the Lord. I have the assurance that we shall meet again at resurrection never to part again.
Sleep well mum. Rest on iya Awofe. My love for you can never dwindle.

Good night Mama with a heart of Gold, with Grandma no dull moment. I grew to know her as my grandma and my mum's friend, because my mum will never stop talking about her generosity, meekness, love which I grew to witness whenever she came on a visit you will see the happiness boldly written on my mum face, the initimacy between them is more than mother and child, it was hard for me to believe when my mum told me that mama is her Uncle's wife, mama used to call her 'Orente' they lived under the same roof before my mum got married. Mama impart in the life of my mum cannot be over emphasized, she said she was with her a week to her demise, 'Orente'really missed u. Goodnight mama till we meet and part no more.

As someone who has fortunately never had to lose someone close to me, the death of my beloved Grandmother has been extremely difficult to comprehend. How can someone so loving in her approach to all she meets, gracious in her manner and most of all a source of happiness in my life be gone? How can a woman so full of life be no longer living? However, as I overcame my initial feelings of distraught, the realization that Grandma lived an enviable life of happiness comforted me. She had gotten to see the many fruits of her labor through the successes of her children and grandchildren.

Whenever I think of my beautiful Grandmother, I always remember coming home from school when I was younger and being greeted by a warm smile and knowing eyes that instantly made any concern I had disappear. The thing that stuck with me the most from our encounters was that although there was a language barrier, her every action communicated her immense love and cheerful spirit.

Through this time of reminiscence of Grandma’s life, hearing how she raised my mum into the amazing woman she is today, and how Grandma has loved and cared for me even before I was born only deepened my love and appreciation for her.

My Grandmother, Victoria, was an incredible mother, grandmother, friend and much more to so many people and although her irreplaceable absence is felt daily, there is a quotation that puts my feelings into perspective:

“Don’t be sad because it’s over, smile because it happened”.

I’m glad I never took the precious years I had with Grandma for granted and grateful I can call such an admirable woman my Grandma. I know you are at rest now, safe from the wickedness of the world, and I look forward to seeing your smile and hearing your joyful songs once again in paradise.

All the Time i was working with My Boss (Mr Shola) anytime i went to His house and see Grandma the way she embraces me like her Daughter is so overwhelming, she has a good heart and a loving personality. She always smiles and makes me feel welcome anytime we are together either at home or anywhere I see grandma, her sense of humor is heart driven. Grandma I know you are in a better place, you will forever be missed ❤️❤️

My mother in-law was a blessing to me and my family.
You were a rare gem, kind and peace loving woman. You were highly committed to caring for your children, grand children, great grand children, in-laws, and to a large extent your neighbors. This is why people loved you!
Words cannot describe how good human being you were.
You were fun to be around, never a dull moment, you always desired to tell several tales, so that we could learn from you. I really learnt alot from your kindness and caring attitude.
I remember how you stood by me and my wife during the formative period of our marriage. You supported us really well in raising our wonderful children both in Nigeria and Manchester. My children love you so much and they are missing you. They enjoyed when you sang to each of them, their respective customised songs. It was always lovely to hear you sing those songs.
I am convinced that Jehovah God will call you on resurrection day, and you will answer! Because you were close to perfection as a human being.
You deserve a befitting burial! And a befitting burial we shall give you! Continue to rest in Jehovah's memory.
I can't wait to run towards you and give you a big hug in paradise when you're are awaken back to life. Good night.
Posted by Oluronke Adewusi on July 11, 2021
Goodnight my beloved mum of an inestimable value. A true, loving, caring and exceptional mum. Words cannot describe how much I love you. You left this sinful world exactly the day of my birth, which to me denotes how close, intimate and connected we were together during your life time.

Your death has left a vacuum in my life that no one else can fill. I wish I could just hold you in your last minutes or had your head rested on my chest whilst you took your last breath.

Your grandchildren are missing you. They are grieving and wondering who would sing to them their favourite and personalized songs again. I also wonder who else would call me, "Apinke or Alapinke" like you would fondly call me and I would respond with smiles and excitements.

I woke up on the second day of your demise feeling empty and sad, struggling to come to terms with your death. Realising that my number one fan, confidant, and best friend was no more. I was however reassured by the resurrection hope, the everlasting life in paradise; when we will meet and part no more.

I will forever miss you iya Apinke. Abiyamo to o to, abiyamo to mo yi omo.
Your legacy of love, compassion, peace, unity and harmony will linger on.
Good night my first love

Maami—my jist partner, my comforter, my all in all. I don’t know what adjective is rich enough to qualify you with. It’s still like a dream to me that you have left this sinful world. You were an epitome of beauty and intelligence. Although you did not have a formal education, you ensured that your children had at least a university degree. I grew up knowing you as a caring, lovely mother, and lover of children.

Back when you were running your business selling provisions, you took care of business while nursing other people's children—simultaneously—without thinking of any compensation. You coined a special song for each child whenever they cry. You helped me nurture Lékan and Lola from birth till they left for the United States of America. You raised my siblings’ children—home and abroad. You taught us to embrace “LOVE”—leaving no room for discrimination towards anyone!

No amount of tears can bring you back. Continue to rest in the bosom of your father till we meet to part no more.

Suun re o Maami, Oluyemi Abeke! Sun re o Omo Karounwi Ajani, aya Adewale!

Mama,

It’s quite difficult to come to terms with the fact that you’ve truly left us, however, I am more delighted in the knowledge that you lived a good life. A life of impact; you raised so many children and grandchildren from biological ones, to family members and even neighbors. You were a peace maker, you loved all and treated all kind.

I cherish every moment I shared with you, from the songs and dance sessions, story telling and advice. Thank you for the love, sacrifices, care, support and everything you’ve done for us.

You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. I will be forever grateful and thankful for the gift of ‘experiencing’ you.

Rest in the bosom of the Lord!

My Hero

Shared by Juliet Ify on July 15, 2021
Mama was my favorite person, we would spend the whole day together eating(ata suwe), drinking, sleeping. She taught me all i know about the civil war, Mamas stories were second to none, you would miss important meetings listening to her.
Mama may have passed on, but her memories would always live on within us. Thank you for your sacrifices(for your kids and grandbabies), your care and concern, your love and everything that you have done for us. Wherever you are, I know you are in a much better place.
