Renowned Nigerian actor Yinka Quadri finds himself in mourning on his birthday, as he sadly announces the passing of his immediate brother’s wife on his special day. In a poignant Instagram post, he writes:
“This year’s birthday 🎂 is marked by difficulty, yet I hope to find some solace amidst the sorrow… I have lost my immediate brother’s wife 😭.
Today, we celebrate and laugh, creating that glow that accompanies us. Tomorrow, there are transient things that will surround us, for nothing lasts forever. Today, we exist, hopeful and optimistic about things that ultimately hold no meaning. Tomorrow, we depart, our graves adorned with silence. Allah has ordained a set lifespan for everything. Truly, in life, the only certainty is death 😭😭😭.
Alhamdulillahi, today I turn a year older, yet simultaneously lose a dear one.
What I earnestly seek from everyone this year are prayers 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🤲🤲🤲.
Alhaji Abdul Ganiyu Olayinka Quadri.”
