Speaking last during his late son’s tribute, late DJ Olu’s father, Dapo Abiodun, talked about how he would miss him revealing that he questioned God for the kind of tragedy that has befallen on him.
“We were very close. I remember I would report Olu to my mother and she would say a tree doesn’t fall from a tree. I saw him for the last time last week Sunday when we had lunch; Olu was always wanting to please me. He was supposed to go back to Coventry last week for his postgraduate school but he begged me to allow him to stay for just one week because he wanted to commission his petrol station and car wash business. I begged him to go to school promising him that I would help do everything while he was away but he refused. If he had gone back to school, he wouldn’t have died. I pray that I don’t have to reciprocate this kind of visit to anyone present here.”
Also present at the service include several of his entertainment colleagues like Mayorkun, Naeto C, and Davido’s manager Asa Asika.
Friends and family held a candlelight service in honour of Oluwagbemiga Abiodun aka DJ Olu who passed away along with his friend, Chime Amaechina, on October 7th. At the service, the heartbroken father, billionaire businessman Dapo Abiodun, recounted the times he spent with his son. He paid glowing tribute to DJ Olu and applauded him for starting up his own businesses.
‘He always wanted to impress me, and he did; I take peace knowing all his plans and projects kicked off in his name and not mine…’. he said
DJ Olu was buried today in Lagos. His funeral mass took place at Emmanuel Chapel in Banana Island while he was interred at The Vaults in Ikoyi. He was 24 years old. May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
