In the wake of the candlelight procession held in memory of the young and talented singer, Mohbad, who tragically passed away last week, Bukunmi Oluwasina has bid her farewell in a deeply heartfelt manner.
The Yoruba actress, who appeared to share a close bond with the late singer, posted photographs of herself from the procession alongside a heartfelt message.
She expressed that the sudden news of his untimely passing had left her grappling with a unique kind of pain. It’s a pain that refuses to allow her to recall or envision him struggling for his life.
She went on to explain that she chooses not to remember him in agony, as her heart cannot bear that burden, causing her to shed tears each time she does so.
For Bukunmi, she prefers to remember him as someone who has been taken from us unexpectedly, to a place where he can finally find the peace he had sung about and prayed for.
In a consoling message, she urged him to rest in peace, assuring him that God is watching over him, and the entire nation is working to ensure justice prevails.
You can read her touching message in its entirety here.
“I raised you a candle last night too like the rest of the world yesterday dearest friend.
But I have no words to say here, nor a thing to write cos of the sudden news flying around, that you were buried alive.
True or false, I don’t know.
But, It became another trauma for me as my head is refusing to remember or picture you waking up under the ground, only to start fighting for breath and fighting for your life like you did while on the ground.
No, my heart won’t take that in. So I don’t get to remember you in pains and drop a tear every time I do.
My heart would always remember you as been taken away from us unannounced. To a place where you can finally find the peace you have been praying for, singing about, and fighting for all your life.
Go to sleep dear friend, You deserve the rest.
Cos I see God himself, fighting for you already.
I see why.
You have always being very special and precious to him like the apple of his eyes, Imole.
The whole nation and beyond can’t even rest since you left.
You are loved brother, and you live on in light.
Only if they knew, they wouldn’t have touched you.
God leads with us as we find you justice my friend.
He leads us to victory
Cos I know no one fights it better, than the one who owns the battle.
On this day, I pray your light continues to shine in this dark world as always.
And may God continue to look after all that is yours and the ones that genuinely loved and cared about you, that you left behind.
Keep resting ILERIOLUWA.💔💐
Say me well to my Dad.
Till we meet again to part no more.
