“JAN 8th 1995 D Day i watched U go:
You made me proud to be from IYE- EKITI.
You named me NINIOLA( which means,to have wealth)cos my birth brought forth good tidings.That was when you bought our first coloured TV and everything started falling into place.
Omo ologo didan.
I miss you so much.
I miss plaiting your hair.
I miss keeping your secrets.
I miss your GUN collection.
You were my BEST FRIEND.
You used to show off your dancing baby “NINIOLA” to your friends.
You’d even record me on your camcoder.
How I wish you were here to see your BABY killing every stage.
You made me a QUEEN the moment I was born making me untouchable.
You were a Visionary, Philanthropist, Educationist, Soldier etc
Thank you for loving us all..
I will forever cherish the good memories we shared.
Till we meet again
Eee ohhhhhhh.
