-Faces of Celebrities At The Event - e247

It was a glorious exit for Prince Abiodun Ishola Adeyemi, the father-in-law of ace comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka 1st, who passed on Sunday, August 10, 2014. The burial service was held on Friday, September 12, 2014 at the Diocese of Lagos West, St. Pauls’ Anglican Church, Ojodu- Abiodun, Lagos. Late Prince Adeyemi, 87, an insurance broker and astute politician, is survived by his wife, Madam Bisi, children and grandchildren including Barrister Abiola Adeyinka, the amiable wife of the popular comedian. Abiola, together with her siblings; Pharm. (Mrs). Oluyemi Onakoya and Barr. (Mrs). Ololade Willoughby, pulled all stops to give a befitting reception for their dad at the expansive ground of Babs Fafunwa Miillenium School, Ojodu, Lagos.

Guests, including family members, friends from corporate Nigeria, staffers of the Ministry of Justice, scores of comedians and media executives joined Gbenga Adeyinka to ensure an eventful celebration of the life and times of the late father-in-law.

Also present at the burial ceremony were distinguished members of the January9Collective (J9C), a social club which the comedian is a member led by the recently elected Captain Seun Soyinka.

Gbenga Adeyinka extolled the virtues of his late father-in-law who he described as ” a great family man, a lover of people around him, a philantropist, a great grandfather, a great listener and a conversationalist….” The pains of his passage, Adeyinka said, are hard to assuage him but found consolation in the selfless life he lived and the many lives he touched.

Gale of tributes were also received from eminent Nigerians including Prof. Wale Omole and his wife, the Willoughbys, the Onakoyas, the Kadiris and Adenaikes among others.

At the lavish reception anchored by Omo Baba, guests were served chilled and exotic drinks by BONIX while versatile musician, Seun Bankole (SB), churned out great tunes that drew many to dance till dusk.
