Sun Re…Adeola. SMD & Show Dem Camp release Musical Tributes to Adeola Randolph



On the 7th of February 2012, Adeola Randolph passed away after a asthma attack. The young, handsome and dynamic Adeola will be remembered for his kindness and zest for life.

Just a few days ago, a friend wrote a tribute on T1960C where he reminisced on a recent meeting with Adeola…

My job demanded I understood the downstream oil industry, and he was one of the guys I called for advice. He took an hour of his airtime to explain the dynamics of the petrol and diesel importation to me, and when he found me unable to comprehend such ‘simple’ matters over the phone; we met up somewhere in Victoria Island for a lesson. By the way, he paid for my drinks too. That was quintessential Randy B.

His cousin, SMD was inspired to write two tracks as well as complete a track that Adeola had worked on. His friends from Lucci and Show Dem Camp who coincidentally alongside Adeola were part of a musical group – COV while they were students of Coventry University in the UK also released a track dedicated to Adeola, fondly known as Randy B.

One Day


My Best Friend


Rest in Peace Adeola

    The pain in my heart at you being gone, in the short time I had you in my life makes me wonder how your family members are coping. I only hope the Lord who saw fit to take you provides comfort for the heavy hearts you left behind. RIP Adeola you will forever live in our hearts.

    Never knew you until d day i saw your pictures on some of my BBM contacts with “R.I.P”. I was so shocked and deeply pained (cos I recently lost a dear friend too who was even younger) that I started to chat with all those people to find out what happened. When i saw your obituary in Punch I felt like i knew you already and no one had to remind me its the same guy from the dps. Seeing your pictures from your friend’s wedding again i was double sure its you then i saw a confirmation which was the picture of where you made a toast( same picture in Punch). There’s no need to be told you were so full of life. I know Ive written too much for a stranger but I feel really sad and I wish I knew you in life. May God grant your family and friends the strength to move on. Rest in Peace.

    I knew Adeola and his family in London, his sister and I attended the same college and were quite close. He was always so lovely, polite and gracious. Ever so helpful. He was very good freinds with my brother, they had a tight knit group and remained so. So when I learnt about Adeola’s passing away, it saddened me.
    Randy B. you are missed. May God grant your family the fortitude to bear the loss. Franni, Jake and your parents are all in my prayers. May God bless you all.
