Known as Deronke Okunnubi, you would fall in love with her merely by following her on Instagram.
Deronke, who was the CEO of Dorofabrics would not only post pictures of her ware but celebrate her husband, her three sons and she was a devout Muslim.
The last time she posted on IG was on Tuesday March 28.
As if she knew she was going to die(cause of death not disclosed) she wrote that her husband didn’t want any party for his 40th birthday but she planned a surprise photo shoot.
According to Deronke in one of the videos posted, she said she started planning for the March 21 birthday since last year October.
Deronke in a post on her husband’s birthday wrote:
“Four Decades isn’t just a Big deal – it’s a HUGE Deal . My King stated he was not interested in any Party for his 40th Birthday but guess what there was no way I was letting him off like that so instead I started on this Surprise Photoshoot for him cos I wanted a Lifetime Memories of how we celebrated his 40th & this milestone was my magical moment to dazzle him from supper Simple to simply Sensational all he had to do was Look the Part cos I had played the Role.”
Eulogising her husband as usual in one of her latest posts on his birthday, she wrote:
“A King name Adewale was born 40 years ago on this day of the 21st of March 1977 and it’s was ordained for him that he will be Great in Wisdom & Knowledge , Rich with Wealth & Health, Humble to his Creator ,
Loyal to those who have earned his Loyalty and Blessed with a Queen & 3 Prince and all that he desires to have in life .
King Adewale has lived for 4 decades & he has truly accomplished most of what he desires and will continue to work hard to achieve other things on his list to be a fulfilled man .
Long Live My King, My Crown I say to you HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY .
Wishing you more greatness inshaAllah #KingAdewalehits40# (sic)
Of course, the lady who lived in London before her death had her timelines filled with messages from friends, business partners, colleagues and followers who never met her.

So it’s true she has actually gone forever. This was the last I saw of you on Sunday, as usual the smiles, warmest hugs, encouragements, support and love was all I can remember of you. So humble, down to earth, God fearing well wisher I can go on and on. She is always happy when you share a good news with her. Mum Awwal I have only known u for about six years but your way of life is a lesson i learnt so much and emulate good stuff from you without u knowing. I can only pray that you rest in perfect peace.may Allah grant you Al Jannah firdaus. May Allah console and uphold your wonderful family. Death is cruel. Sleep on my sister Aderonke Teluwo Okunnubi.” (sic)
