Segun Odegbami reveals the lack of his son, Oluwagbeminiyi

Oluwagbeminiyi Omo Odegbami – the easy pilgrim returns dwelling!

It’s fully inconceivable to assume that I’m writing about Oluwagbeminiyi Omo Odegbami previously tense.

Someday to Good Friday, his message woke me up while I used to be in Accra, Ghana. He needed my abstract of the synopsis of the documentary challenge we have been engaged on.

I instructed him to not look forward to me however to go forward and apply his ample creativity to the challenge.

I used to be not exaggerating. Gbemi was an unknown and unappreciated G. He was a extremely gifted, multi-talented younger man. His writing expertise, poetic literature in musical lyrics, rapping, elocution when he reads, and distinctive culinary expertise, have been all on this laid-back younger man whose life is easy, spartan and secluded, with no intention in any way to disturb the equilibrium of the chaotic world round him.

4 hours after our alternate, I obtained the primary of limitless cellphone calls that eventful day, final Thursday: Gbemi shouldn’t be feeling properly; Gbemi is being taken to a hospital; the hospital has referred Gbemi to a different hospital.
I direct that he be taken to a specialist hospital. His scenario is essential. The hospital works on him for hours.

12 hours after our first communication, and precisely 5 minutes previous midnight, on the start of Good Friday (a major day in Christendom), the medical doctors name me for the umpteenth time that day to interrupt my coronary heart with the information that haunts me until now – Gbemi has handed on!
Would it not have occurred had I not travelled? Would I’ve dealt with his scenario higher?

It was a surprising, devastating, painful and incomprehensible information. Good individuals shouldn’t die! Why ought to this younger man, at the beginning of a brand new thrilling chapter of his life, die so instantly? Besides, after all, (and I now consider so) that it’s a part of a divine plot that his spirit catches up with that of the ‘useless’ on Good Friday, his sins and transgressions wiped away on the cross of Calvary by means of Grace at Easter. His soul should be resting peacefully now with the Creator of the Universe.

This ‘sermon’ has grow to be my comfort. This type, mild and easy coronary heart, should not be tortured by the tough challenges of his life in his world over which he had little management.

Gbemi, till his dying, was unfamiliar with the world’s complicated methods. His easygoing life was innocent to anybody. His love riveted on his little son, his mom, his sisters, his music, his cooking, his songwriting, his associates and his present work within the radio station – most likely in that order.

He lastly discovered peace, plus the area and alternative to specific his a number of expertise with out the strain of any exterior scrutiny, having fun with his productions insights, performances and sounds.

Then dying comes like a thief within the evening to steal all of that, snatch him away and go away us with a yawning area within the puzzle of life.

Personally, this hurts actually dangerous.

I miss Oluwagbeminiyi Omo Odegbami, a superb thoughts that’s encapsulated within the frail physique of a easy and mild pilgrim. He got here to the world, performed his half quietly amidst unbelievable challenges, and now departs leaving a legacy of affection and kindness to all these he encountered on his journey.

He instructed me some weeks in the past that what he had missed essentially the most in his life have been the love, steerage and friendship of a father, however that he was comfortable to have lastly discovered them in a relationship with me.

Adieus Son, as you come back (on the 4th day) to our Creator this morning!

Dr. Olusegun Odegbami
