Its no longer news that leading entertainer and one of the most respected comedians of the Federal Republic, Gbenga Adeyinka, The First, recently lost his darling mother. What perhaps, many are oblivious of, is the fact that Adeyinka, is planning a grand burial for his dear mum.
And in order to ensure a successful outing for the late madam Adunni Adeyinka Giwa-Bello, who died on May 20, 2009, Adeyinka and his siblings are already working round the clock. Info extracted from the very colourful burial invite, which is already in the hands of many of Adeyinka’s colleagues, friends and associates, says a Christian Wake keep, holds this Thursday, June 18, at the deceased residence, in Olodi, Apapa, Lagos. The Church Service holds the following day, at the Bishop Adelakun Howells Memorial Church, Surulere, Lagos, while interment follows immediately at the nouveau riche wing of the Ikoyi Cemetery.

The reception we reliably gathered holds at the lush open field of Eko FM, Ikeja, Lagos, between the hours of 1 and 7p.m
Also learnt that Adeyinka’s colleagues in the entertainment sector, especially comedians would be storming the event in a grand way, to further support one of their own.
