The mood in the household of the late Willy Anumudu of Globe Motors is still tense.
One of Nigeria’s most prominent businessmen and society personalities, Chief Williams Anumudu died on April 21, 2020
He was aged 68 years.
Taking to Instagram to pay tribute to her late was Ozinna.
The first and only daughter of the deceased, Ozinna wrote:
“Daddy’m…. biko o, ka’m ju gi….are you really not going to walk me down the aisle ? Or sing Ada Ada to me every blessed morning ? Or tell me how I’m ten million daughters in one? Surely… you have plans to hug me again…? and tell me why I’m the most beautiful girl in the world?
My dad gasped and told me how beautiful I was, every single day. Daddy, will I hear you scream ZinZin like the happiest man in the world, again? I honestly don’t know how you expect me to do this life thing without you… but you always told me I’m the toughest person you know – so here’s me being that woman you raised. I haven’t shed a tear yet, probably because I do not think you’ve left me – you’ve only just transitioned from my eternal boyfriend to my forever guardian angel. 🕊
My Real Life Super Hero. My SuperMan. I’m the textbook version of a Daddy’s Girl. Nobody loved their daddy more than Me. Absolutely Nobody. No father adored their daughter more than you did me. No contest. We were always in first place. We were the perfect duo. We completed each other (gulp, don’t let your wife read this part)😅 I promise to keep being the female version of you. My Mummy is doing well, I’ve got her back forever – and my brothers are staying strong; being the great men you molded them into. Until I can have one final dance with you, I’ll be here waiting, being your forever baby girl.
Anumudu was the chairman of Globe Motors, one of the foremost automobile companies in Nigeria. His death occurred in the wee hours of Tuesday, April 21, 2020, and it was confirmed by Bashorun Dele Momodu, the publisher of Ovation International Magazine and a close family friend of the Anumudus.
Fondly called Pa Willie by his close friends and associates, Anumudu, together with his delectable wife, Nkiru (née Adimora) bestrode the Nigerian society circuit for almost 40 years.
It was gathered that Pa Willie suffered some health challenges few days ago and “was tested for COVID-19 which came out negative”.
According to sources, plans were underway to air-lift him to Germany. Unfortunately though, he died around 4am on Tuesday.
His wife, Nkiru is reported to be away in London at the moment. She had traveled to London to attend the 80th birthday party of Justice Adesola Oguntade, the Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom. However, she decided to stay back to nurse her ailing brother.
The marriage between Pa and Ma Willie, as the Anumudus are fondly called, was blessed with four children – Uzoma, Eyinna, Zinna and Zikky.
