Today makes the 17th day after Ayomikun’s death. Her actress mum, Remi Oshodi aka Surutu did something dramatic—she posted a new movie, “Gold Statue” which she featured in.
Sharing a picture of herself and Gabriel Afolayan, Surutu wrote: “From “Madam Dearest” to “Gold Statue”, Gabriel Afolayan is always in my ‘hot soup’. #GoldStatue is fast cooking…you all should anticipate.
Really many of her fans and friends were glad she decided pulling off the toga of sorrow and gaining strength to move on.
Ayo, Remi’s daughter, died of sickle cell disorder on July 2 and her remains were interred on July 6, at the Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The burial, which was befitting of a princess, according to Remi, was intentional. Most of the burial photos and visitors to Remi’s residence were shared on actor Yomi Fabiyi’s page on social media.
Many abused Yomi on these posts but Remi responded:
“However, I choose to grieve this way because Ayo’s case is different. Those that know us together will understand better.
Let me add this, over the years, Yomi Fabiyi and few colleagues had been supporting and visiting anytime Ayo had complications at home or in hospital. And recently despite being busy with Late Moji Olaiya’s burial, he still finds time to visit Ayo in General hospital Ikeja before the eventuality. What more do I want from a colleague? Nobody should come this hard on a good person leaving out the bad ones are left to jubilate and justify their non-concern.
He sought my consent before putting anything up, we were together. I am mentally balance enough to say no if I don’t want anything and till now he has not done anything contrary to my wish or to hurt me.
There is no amount of contents on social media that can match what I carry inside me, please understand me. I have few media houses who detailed the burial events and I sincerely appreciate it. I love my daughter so much that I do not want her passage quiet since sickness had robbed her off many vibrant activities and fun of life. Hopefully you all understand.
@yomifabiyi I am sorry for the insults and pain, I take responsibility. My family appreciates you, the movie industry know your value and we know the idea you are sacrificing to keep and uphold. We need more of you, I am a mother and I mean this. With time everybody will understand. Thanks to all my colleagues, friends and well wishers for your support and understanding. Ani fi iru e gba.
Remi Oshodi(Surutu).” (sic)
