On June 26th, Akeem took to social media to announce the passing of his mother with a heartfelt message:
“I never believed I would be writing a farewell note to you, my small god, my Jewel… Iyami owon. Death!!! You took the most precious soul in my life… How can I move on without you… The promises we made to each other… You never stayed to witness my wedding, see my children like you always said… Never knew the last time I would see you was at the airport. You fought so well, my number one fan… All I feel is emptiness… 💔💔💔😭😭😭. I waited to hear that you woke up later… unfortunately, I lost you to the cold hands of Death 😭😭😭.”
A month later, he paid tribute to his late mother again on social media:
“Exactly this time last month, your call woke me up, and we spoke for a while with prayers… 💔💔💔😭😭😭. I have experienced grief, not as hurtful and painful as this… I have lost people, not with so much emptiness… Losing a mother is a pain that cannot be described in words. It’s virtually impossible to move on from the memory of losing the woman who gave birth to you. The one who sacrificed her happiness in her own life so that her children could have a better life. My mother taught me everything except how to live without her… 💔. A mother is the truest friend we have. When trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us, when adversity takes the place of prosperity, when friends desert us, when trouble thickens around us, still, she will cling to us and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness and cause peace to return to our hearts. Today marks one month since you left this sinful world 💔💔💔.”
There’s a certain permanence and indescribable depth to losing a mother… A wound that will never fully mend. Sun re o, Iya mi owon, Iya t’eko, Iya teacher.
