“You Would Have Been 23 Years Old Today, But Fate Beat Me To It” – Remi Oshodi’s Touching Tribute To Her Late Daughter


Nollywood actress, Remi Oshodi, popularly known as Mama Surutu lost her daughter some months ago to sickle cell anemia.

Remembering her daughter, who would have celebrated her 23rd birthday today, Remi Oshodi shared a touching tribute to her and a video of the two of them.

Read below:

Though I mourn no more, but the strengths to fight keep fluctuating.
You would have been 23 years old today, but fate beat me to it.

For 22 years and a bit more, I watched you grow. I enjoyed every glamour of your innocence and the love you practically shared with all and sundry.

I didn’t experience in you the myth that fighters are always troublesome to handle. You were ever calm, obedient, cheerful, respectful and concerned.
I can’t forget it all…your beauty- in character and appearance.
The elegance in your walks and the tenderness of your voice. You within a brief moment of existence lived an exceptional life.
Keep resting, baby.
Ayomikun…Ejika mi!

With much love from ‘Remi.
