Niniola And Teniola Remember Their Father 24 Years After He Was Assassinated


24 years after the death of their dad, siblings, Niniola and Teniola Apata are paying tribute to him. Their dad, Late (RTD) Brigadier-General, Simeon Olaosebikan Apata, who fought for the Nigerian army under ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo during the civil war, was assassinated on January 8, 1995.

The sisters who are both singers, remember their dad as they fill him up on what they have been up to.

JAN 8th 1995 D Day i watched U go:

You made me proud to be from IYE- EKITI.

You named me NINIOLA( which means,to have wealth)cos my birth brought forth good tidings.That was when you bought our first coloured TV and everything started falling into place.

Omo ologo didan.
I miss you so much.
I miss plaiting your hair.
I miss keeping your secrets.
I miss your GUN collection.
You were my BESTFRIEND.
You used to show off your dancing baby “NINIOLA” to your friends.
You’d even record me on your camcoder.
How I wish you were here to see your BABY killing every stage.

You made me a QUEEN the moment I was born making me untouchable.

You were a Visionary , Philantropist , Educationist , Soldier etc
Thank you for loving us all..
I will forever cherish the good memories we shared.
Till we meet again
Eee ohhhhhhh.
APATA ayeraye
