DJ Olu's Father Speaks: "If He Had Gone Back To School, He Wouldn't Have Died"

The late DJ Olu's candle light service was very emotional as speaker after speaker poured eulogies on him. One of the friends of the deceased named Tobi performed a very touching song to the admiration of the mourners gathered. Another friend, Seni Saraki, son of Senate President Bukola Saraki, spoke about how the late DJ Olu was like the elder brother he never had and would really miss him.

In her speech, DJ Olu’s mom, Bidemi Abiodun praised 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.

Speaking last, father of the deceased, Dapo Abiodun, 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.”
