Ibu: My Father’s Death Changed My Perspective About Life

Nigerian actress, Bukunmi Oluwasina, has thrown more light on how her father’s demise impacted her life.

According to the songwriter, who was reacting to the death of Sisi Quadri and Mr Ibu, her father’s sudden death changed her perspective on life and it deprived her of cherished moments and loved ones.

In a lengthy post made on her Instagram, the thespian, her father’s absence prompted her to stop commemorating her birthday.

Oluwasina reflected on the things taken away from her without notice.

The actress offered a prayer for the upcoming month of March, hoping it would bring blessings for both herself and her family, especially as her daughter celebrates her birthday.

She wrote, “I have started seeing life differently, since some angels came unaware, and took my dad away. I have learnt to accept that every day brings me closer to my own grave. Losing someone dear to you, that pain is never the same.

“It’s not on the list of pains that go away. I still don’t party to celebrate my birthday up till date. Because I’m always sad, every time it’s 7th of May.

“I know what you would always say, you were always the first to call my phone and pray. Always the first to give me a gift for my birthday. It’s been years, but nothing feels the same way. How the f*** would everything be the same again??

“Someone had died again yesterday. And here, we go through this pain again. That pain never goes away. Every time a person dies again, it’s new every day. Growing thick skin lately, Cos of what your death had taught me. I no longer worry about the day I die, I only worry, about the loved ones I leave behind.

“So every single time, I use it as well as I can. Take my time to sing my child some lullaby. Remember to kiss the man I love “Good night.” Cos of the day, I won’t wake up, no matter how much I try.

“Would happily sacrifice the most precious things in the world, Just to be with and spend time with the people I love. Create enough memories to help us hold on, Go broke being there for people known and unknown, Cos none of the things we have is truly our own. Hey March, please be good to us.

“It’s my daughter’s birthday tomorrow, yes of course. So, be good to her too. Let’s all pray Grand Pa, who would have prayed for her, come true.

“Let her live to fulfill all you have created her to. Every time she needs a friend, God, I want it to be you. Be the one she would always run to. Because I tell her. You always come through. And on this day, please console every heart that is in dismay. Even if you can’t take some pains away, teach us how to live with them every day.

“May this March be a good month for me and you. Yes, you, the person reading this. May it be a great March for me and you. This I pray today, for ME and YOU.”
