The entertainment industry might not get over the loss of a close friend of music star, Davido, who was also the official Disc Jockey of HKN Gang.
DJ Olu died on Saturday, October 7, 2017 and was found in his car alongside another young man, Chime.
This is the second time in one week that the singer would lose a close friend in virtually the same circumstance.
Announcing the death on Snapchat, Davido wrote, “Olu, I swear, tonight is for you!! We killed shows back to back together for four years straight. A part of me is broken. I love you bro. God take control. Two brothers gone in four days!!!” The two silver spoon kids had been friends for ages on account of their billionaire fathers’ relationship and, later, mutual love for music.
Meanwhile, the Abiodun family confirms the tragic and regrettable demise of their beloved son, Olugbemiga.
The statement reads: “We know there are many questions as to how or why such tragedy would happen to such great individual but still, God is in control.
The past few days have been most trying for the family. We are saddened by his demise but we are comforted by the well wishes and kind thoughts of friends around the world.
Olugbemiga has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life but few had the pleasure of truly knowing him.
He was a down to earth, generous, kind-hearted, idealist and selfless individual who was extremely inspirational to many.
The family hereby, pleads with the public to disregard insinuations being peddled by certain sections of the media about the actual cause of our son’s death.
An official result of the autopsy conducted will be made available as soon as it is ready. Until then, we urge everyone to kindly respect our family’s need to grieve and come to terms with our loss privately.
We remain humble as parents and a family, among several around the world who are bereaved via the tragic loss of a child.
It is never easy to come to terms with the heart-wrenching and enduring agony that accompanies the death of a loved son.
But our family will forever treasure memories of the extremely joyous days spent with Olugbemiga, prior to his demise. Those precious memories will stay with us forever. We are privileged to have some of his amazing, magic moments captured in our hearts.
To everyone who knew him, Olugbemiga was a son and man of immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him more personally, he was a consummate artiste and citizen of humanity. We knew him as a devoted son, a loyal and very generous brother and friend.
We treasure the outpouring of grief, empathy and love from unbelievably wonderful network of close friends in Nigeria and from around the world.
Families rarely experience such stirring warmth, compassion and support as have we, from every corner of the planet.
This has profoundly touched our hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful.
At this moment however, we respectfully request the worldwide media to allow us time to grieve privately, without the intrusions associated with press and photography.
For the family.”
Popularly called DJ Olu, he was a 2016 graduate of the University of Essex, UK, Olugbemiga was the first of his parents’ five children. He was gangling, gregarious and had a good head on his shoulders; he was every parent’s pride and hope. His mother, Bamidele was known to think the world of him.
It was gathered that Olugbemiga was already being groomed by his father to take over his business conglomerate. On his Instagram page, DJ Olu already added CEO, Heyden, to his profile. That would never be again.
