She has revealed what she will miss about her late mum. In her recent post on Facebook, she wrote about her mum:

Mummy darling the iconic fashionista. Before popular fashion trends, you were trending hands down. From the 50s till you passed on, you wear and they follow. My Incredible Elegant, Fashion Elite.

Before Social media's bombarding us on how to tie gele, you were the

'Gele' Mastreo '!!!  Yeah__ The bumgidigidi_ your popular mantra.

(Oyinbo to se aso, ko se fitting) rings louder and clear on our ears. It makes me separate the real from the shaft.

You taught me to be an excellent cook my husband and children can attest to this. You set the pace for us all. Illa asepo, Efo elemimeje, to name a few. You were never tired of cooking the best for Daddy and us. I miss your laughter, infectious gistings and incredible sense of humour. You will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace, mummy.


Mummy. With your precious smile, your spirit still lives around me. I’m not functioning very well in this house without you. Even the dogs at home feel your absence at home. I miss you terribly, everywhere feels so empty without you. You should hear the amazing things everyone is saying about you. You are the one who always prays by my bedside, no one to give me current affairs, I don’t hear the alarming sound of your radio giving me the bulletin of the day anymore. I hope you are at peace and in a better place. Adieu Mummy, I will miss you and will forever be in my heart

"My Sweet Mother, My Heart has completely shattered. I was with you the day you left us, you prayed for me and advised me. Little did we know it was your last moment. You were a force, a Power vessel, a strong servant of God a precious jewel. Words cannot explain how I feel but I will miss you greatly, I will miss our late night gists, always waiting for me to return home, your delicious meals, and your constant love and care towards all of us."


"Death can be a cruel thing. One minute you’re with your loved ones, the next minute it’s all taken away from you. Your life on earth is so precious, we should spread love and kindness to everyone because all we have is one another. My dear mother has departed from us, I am completely broken. Who knows when I will recover from this, who knows how? But in all things, we must thank the Almighty and keep having faith."


"Mummy was very kind-hearted, always gave a helping hand to the known and unknown never had ill thoughts about anyone. Just a free soul, as delicate as a flower as compassionate. Always having a good laugh and making everyone around her laugh she will be truly missed. I don’t know how long I will grieve for but I will love you forever, your spirit would always guide me and lead us all. 

You will forever be in our hearts. My darling Mother."
