In her speech at the party when summoned to talk about Adahunse, she said, “I don’t have much words to utter, let me thank God, I will just say a bit about Alhaji Abdulrasheed Agbolade, my dearest husband. You are retired but not tired, I pray that as God joined us together as husband and wife four years ago, you will live long and have abundance. I saw you then as a complete ‘English’ man, you saw me as a musician. But love conquered all. I have not chosen wrongly. From today, call me Abeni, Idunu Ishola.”
