“I remember the last words you said to me the morning before you died… “love you, please buy the soap you bought for me before and send to me, I like it”… Suddenly at night it was the call announcing your death… Chief I. O Olopade the Akakamukoko 1, Baba chief, the first comedian I ever knew… Always laughing to my ring tone…so sad you are gone… Farewell Daddy,’ he penned down.
