family and Friends held a candlelight service in honour of Oluwagbemiga Abiodun aka DJ Olu who passed away along with his friend, Chime Amaechina, on October 7th.
At the service, DJ Olu’s mom, Bidemi Abiodun commended her son, saying she would miss him, adding that his death has shattered a part of her life but she will remain strong because she knows he is resting within the bosom of the Lord.
His brother called him his mentor and friend and he also spoke about how DJ Olu was always ready to achieve any of his goals as well as the proposed car wash and petrol station business he was planning to contract.
His elder sister who was very emotional as she delivered her own tribute spoke of how she saw him as an elder brother even though she was older.
His heart broken Father also spoke and talked about how close he was to his son.
In his speech he said “We were very close. I remember I would report Olu to my mother and she would say a tree doesn’t fall from a tree. I saw him for the last time last week Sunday when we had lunch; Olu was always wanting to please me. He was supposed to go back to Coventry last week for his postgraduate school but he begged me to allow him to stay for just one week because he wanted to commission his petrol station and car wash business.
Going further he said: “I begged him to go to school promising him that I would help do everything while he was away but he refused. If he had gone back to school, he wouldn’t have died. I pray that I don’t have to reciprocate this kind of visit to anyone present here”
