    Aunty Dieko!!!

    I met her through Bimbola and she’s been such a blessing to me and my family!

    I was introduced to her to provide a service (of which she then became an ardent repeat customer for many years) but we developed a very personal relationship borne out of our struggles with infertility and she held my hand and walked that journey with me. A true Egbon! And when I finally had my baby ahead of her, that support was STEADFAST and UNWAVERING regardless.

    My husband and I she took as aburos and we will forever remember her warmth, genuine spirit and kindness. She was ever ready to drop it all just to make the next person happy or comfortable. Always offering solutions, always opening doors for others!

    We are truly truly heartbroken by her ever so sudden passing!! ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’” Our sincere prayer is that God will comfort all of her loved ones.

    She was an angel walking in our midst and we didn’t even know it ๐Ÿ™


    I did not know you personally Dieko but I have read so much about you from your sister Bimbo who attended same Secondary School with me.You lived a good life dedicated to loving and serving others and I am confident you are with God.May God console your loved ones left behind and may He grant you eternal rest.Amen.

    I sit around and wonder
    and watch the days go by.
    I look at all your pictures
    and ask, why did you have to leave so soon without saying good bye? Why? But it pleases God that you should be with Him. Who are we to question God other than to give him all the glory.

    Diekololami, oremi, alabaro mi. My Besto of life. This wasn’t the plan, we had dreams, big dreams. You were a big dreamer, a visionier and an achiever . You were bold and courageous. You were bubby, full of life, fun to be with and above all Godly. This gives me joy that you are resting in the bossom of the Lord.

    You had a large heart, always willing and ready to offer your support. You were kind hearted, warm and cheerful.

    You were a beautiful friend to me, one that is irreplaceable. You were my confidant, my gist partner, my party buddy.

    Goodnight, my dear friend; your journey has ended in this cruel world. You fought a good fight.
    Your struggles have now ceased. No more pains, no more sorrow.
    Time to close your eyes to happy dreams.
    And wake to eternal peace.

    Watch over your lil Prince, Samuel from heaven. He will be great and he will achieve purpose. He will make you proud.

    Till we meet again in heaven to part no more.

    Adieu my Bestoโค

    A golden heart stopped beatingA golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest, It broke the hearts of your loved ones to see you go, God breaks our hearts to prove to us all, he only takes the best. You shall remain a GOLDEN memory to all you left behind!
    REST ON DIEKO! I LOVE YOUR NAME by the way ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ginormous Hugs n Kisses to you Auntie Bukky!


    I still remember calling you out of the blues from OGSG, to request you provide services on a last minute basis. I did that several times and you never failed us.

    What always struck me wasn’t just your readiness to serve BUT the warmth, the civility and the constant smiling voice with which you did it.

    My first experience defined you for me.

    You were a bright light and no one fortunate to meet you, could forget you.

    I am sorry you had to leave BUT the Almighty probably just wanted you home and we can’t question him.

    I pray that he will comfort and keep your husband, son and the entire family.

    You will be solely missed.

    I have searched my heart many times just to find our why this has happened. I have watched your videos so many times and I can’t help the tears rolling down my cheeks.

    I remember the first day I met you at the warehouse in Oregun, you had the warmest reception but with a hint of no-nonsense. I had been fascinated about how you were all smiles with me and checking in on me every minute but also how you related with the rest of the staff, diligently paying attention to everything they were tasked to do.

    I enjoyed every single moment I spent working for you. You never treated me like a staff member in any way, you always treated me like your child. I learnt so much diligence, dedication and hard work from studying you.

    I remember the last major conversation that we had and you told me about your plans for the company and I just couldn’t imagine myself not been a part of the growth.

    You were always so strong and you never allowed any situation to bring you down and never dwelt on the past.

    You are a true gem and I am glad I had a first hand experience of your warmth, love, care, hard work, diligence.

    My sincere prayer goes to your families and loved ones. I pray that God grants them the strength to carry on.
    You have gone to rest in the bossom of the Lord and will forever remain in out hearts.

    Sister Deki of Life!
    Life is unpredictable and feels quite unfair at this time. Your death is surreal and so painful. You were one of the most pleasant, hardworking and selfless people I know. Beautiful in and out – you are irreplaceable.
    Our joy and consolation is in the fact that you are in a better place. you will always be in our hearts. Gone but not forgotten. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to have met someone as beautiful and wonderful as you.

    May your gentle soul rest in God’s bosom.
    Your son shall be great to the Glory of God. Amen.

    Within the short time I met Dieko, she has been a wondering and caring personality, very detailed and down to earth. She loved her family so much and was very receptive to those that came her way.
    We will no doubt miss her charming smiles.
    RIP Dieko


    Although I didnโ€™t know you in person, I would like to say that you are deeply loved. Rest well ma

    Damilola Mofikoya

    Madam Diekola was a very kind, humble, focused yet passionate person. Our paths crossed a few years ago and since then I have held her in high esteem.
    She had very great dreams, lofty ideas and looked at the future with 110% courage and enthusiasm.
    We don’t know why God allowed her to leave us at this time but we submit totally to God’s will.
    You will be dearly missed ma.
    Rest in perfect peace in the Lord’s bosom.
    Good night.

    May your gentle soul continue to Rest In Peace. May the Lord console the loved ones you left behind.


    Mrs Shade Balogun

    The first day I met Mrs Dieko, I cannot easily forget how adorable she looked, I cherished her every moment and was so glad I met such a rare gem. She gave me an instant opportunity that may probably take me years to attain. She was such a Divine and lovely woman. She forgives easily when you are sincere with her. I was so devastated when the news of her demise reached me. My husband still find it impossible to believe, it’s true they say the righteous is taken away before the evil days. Words cannot describe enough of your heart of gold and positive impact left behind. Am so pained, but am glad she left a great legacy behind. From my family – Mr. Segun and Mrs Shade Balogun, we expresses our deepest condolence to the family of the deceased, the husband Mr Osa-Avielele, the Son, family and friends, we pray the Good Lord grant her soul eternal rest and comfort everyone she left behind. Sleep well Dieko.

    Dearest Dieko May your gentle soul continue to rest well in the Lord.

    Mrs. Dieko was an uncommon person. She did everything she had to do within set time. Although we are saying goodbye to you, wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts.

    May your gentle soul rest in peace. The great GLORY of the Lord shiny on your son.Amen.

    Although we both had Ilorin as our childhood base as we grew up, my closest contact with Dieko, (aside being classmates faculty of law), was as a room mate in 300 Levels at University of Ilorin.
    I had a first hand experience of your humility, candor and kindness. I still can remember the sound of your firm voice, laughter and advice from those days.
    We reconnected again recently and we got talking about the High court elevation process. Your words to me were so soothing and heart warming. You asked me to have faith as the time for my elevation will come. You promised me, you will personally handle the Higher bench elevation party for me when it comes and encouraged that I stay my thoughts on this as a form of faith. You told me to envision the elevation party already and it will be glorious.You kept saying ” Taiwo ma worry igba ti e naa a de lagbara oloun”…it’s so painful that you won’t be there for our plans….so so painful…. No loss of a friend had ever made this heart shattering effect on me and most of your friends too -I believe- but we leave this to the only wise and all knowing God. For only God can heal your family and friends as time lacks the capacity to heal this pain.
    Rest on child of God, rest on Deikola….you, indeed have finished your race and only resting.

    From Ouch Films Multimedia
    I don’t know what to write because is so painful that good people don’t last, she is such a kind hardworking woman with a beautiful heart, meeting her was a door opening to my business because she carried me along like I was her family member she encourage me like she is my big sister she always tell me chai Uche I like you because you are hardworking, she was so happy when I told I have a car now she prayed for me and bless me because she understand what hardwork means, any time you see her she is always working in all she is God fearing women & may her sweet loving soul rest in peace Amen ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’”


    Dieko, your very unique name distinguished you in the then Ilorin Community. Though you were initially classmates with my brother but I knew you in Unilorin. We reconnected a few years ago at a fitness BC in Magodo and you were so graceful. Saw you again sometime last year and you exuded so much grace. The news of your passage was really painful but I know all will be well.
    I pray the Lord comfort your family and ease the pain of your passage.
    Glad you left a wonderful keepsake for your son- the legendary โ€˜dudukeโ€™ dance photo shoot.
    Rest well, Dieko.

    When sad things happen to loved ones
    We begin to question God
    But truly;we cannot question God.
    Heaven’s gained an angel
    And I pray that perpetual light should shine on her soul and all the faithful departed through the mercy of God Amen.
    May the Good Lord be the comforter of both families in this period of grief.
    It is well indeed
    Adieu Dieko๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡
    May your Beautiful soul rest in heaven
