It was an emotional time for the attendees and family members of late Olugbenga Abiodun popularly known as Dj Olu as people present at his candlelight service held on Wednesday made some touching remarks about his time on earth.
Dignitaries from the political space and celebrities from the media world were in attendance to pay their last respect to the late son of businessman and politician, Dapo Abiodun.
One of the friends of the deceased who went by the name, Tobi performed a very touching song to the admiration of the mourners gathered. Another friend, Seni Saraki, son of Senate President Bukola Saraki, said the late DJ Olu was like the elder brother he never had and would really miss him.
Also privileged to speak at his candlelight service was his mother who couldn’t control the emotional connection with her son. Dj Olu’s mother, Bidemi Abiodun praised her son, saying she would miss him further adding that his death had shattered a part of her life but she will remain strong because she knows he is resting within the bosom of the Lord.
Dj Olu’s brother also called him his mentor and friend. He said his brother was ready to go the extra mile to achieve any of his goals including the proposed car wash and petrol station business he was planning to commission.
The elder sister to the Music Jockey amid tears said Dj Olu was more like an elder brother even though she is older.
Speaking last at the service, Dapo Abiodun said he would miss his son. He said he had questioned God, why this tragedy had befallen him.
In his touching 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.
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.”
His entertainment colleagues present at the candlelight service were Naeto C, Mayorkun and Davido’s manager Asa Asika.
