Dipo and FriendsWhen someone you love passes away, there’s a vacuum created by their death. The pain runs deep and the emotions bubble over. Thirty-year old Samson Oladipo Egbedeyi passed away and will be laid to rest today, the 27th of October. 

On this day, that they have to do something no friend should ever have to do, Tomide Makanjuola, Oluwasanmi Ope-Ogungbo and ‘Tunde Ademuyiwa have written a tribute to the man they all fondly referred to as “Niggydip”

We pray for fortitude to bear the loss. Please read the tribute below:

***

30 years ago, a legend was born! Samson Oladipo Egbedeyi aka Niggydip. He was the pride of the Egbedeyi clan.

He lived a tremendously vibrant life. He was charming, passionate, ambitious, and the life of the party. Thick dark clouds of sorrow filled our hearts when the surreal news of his death on Monday, broke on Tuesday morning.

Niggydip’s wedding next year was meant to be the biggest party ever, bringing all of us back together, but death chose to take him away from us. This keeps the questions coming. How? Why? What happened? What would the world be without Niggydip? These and many other questions flooded the minds of many with no answers, leaving us with pain, grief and the guilt of what we could have done if we knew he would leave so soon. These questions disturb us but Niggydip would not allow it eat us up, so he left with us memories that transcends time.

Oando NiggydipNiggydip had an amiable mien. Back in school at the Faculty of Engineering Unilag, Niggydip had a unique connection to several. He did not care how “cool” we were, how smart or not we were, what we had or did not have. He was the loved in every clique.

Niggydip taught us, inspired us, saved us, loved us, listened to us, defended us, protected us and made us laugh. Dipo wasn’t a clown, but he knew exactly what to say, what to do to get people out of their misery.

Dipo had his stories. We called them dodo. Dodo because they were just so improbable that we sometimes can’t help but doubt them. At the same time, we knew that if there’s one person in the whole world that can be the subject of those stories, it’s Niggydip.

Niggydip and FamilyNiggydip had an extraordinary capacity to care for others. Niggydip is that guy that while stuck in traffic, notices a danfo filled with sad looking faces, calls a boy hawking gala, and buys gala for all the passengers. He is the guy whose phone got snatched in traffic, jumps out of the car, runs after the thief, and starts shouting “Egbon e ma binu”, he hails the guy until he got his phone back.

He is the guy who when asked for direction, allowed strangers in his car, drove them to the event they were heading to, and partied with them. In Lagos! He is the guy one meets once, and one never forgets. You can hardly find Niggydip sad. We all have our low moments but he never showed his. I guess he was just too busy helping others fix theirs.

Fine boy niggyHis drive powered by his impeccable confidence was next to none. It is amazing how he could be so confident without being cocky. He saw opportunities everywhere. Unlike most of us, he went after them. Niggydip is the person that showed up at an interview he was not even shortlisted for, and leaves with the job in his pocket. He was very successful, I mean very successful. He had an amazing career at Oando. At work, he was such a performer. Doubled well as a team leader and team player, he made work fun.

He is the guy that showed up at a company end-of-the-year-event in a complete Iron Man costume.
Niggydip iron man
And he upped the ante the year after showing up as Fela Anikulapo Kuti, complete with the dancers and the saxophone.
Niggydip was the guy with the world at his feet, who at 30, was already a legend.
Niggydip Fela

We can’t even claim to comprehend what his family is going through right now. We watched Niggydip’s dad gently rub his hands on his pictures. It was heart breaking. Praz (Funsho) has somehow managed to keep it together, but only on the surface. Dayo has consoled some of us, when we could not keep the tears from flowing. Keji, your only sister, must be devastated. We shared Niggydip’s stories with his mom. For a moment, her spirit appeared lifted. Our thoughts are with Seye. We know Niggydip loved her. We pray that somehow, God grants his family the fortitude to bear this loss and the strength to move on.

We will continue to talk about Niggydip for the rest of our lives. Niggydip achieved in 30 years, what most will not in 80. Because of that, we celebrate his life. Even as we celebrate, we mourn for today, for a year, for as long as it takes. We also know Niggydip is looking down from heaven, with a smile on his face, willing us to focus on being the best representation of ourselves and move on. So we will try, as we continue to share his stories, and as we continue to be inspired by them.

Heaven has called upon you Oladipo Samson Egbedeyi, leaving so many words left to say. Now it is too late, for your time has come, words unspoken; we are sure everybody has some. Regrets and wishes are probably there too, but lasting forever are memories of you. However, henceforth we shall choose to speak of you in present tense as you remain forever in our hearts.

Forever in our hearts is not just a cliché for us. It is a creed we know everyone who ever knew him will keep.

    Niggydip was always the life of the crowd. Never a dull moment with him around. His attitude, his confidence, his character, his playfulness made people wonder who he was. That great guy with the big heart, lots of energy and a huge spirit. Farewell @goatofgambia. May you rest peacefully and eternally in the Lord.

    I actually read this and laughed all through. Especially his chasing after the person who snatched his phone in traffic shouting “egbon ema binu” (bros no vex!). Seems like such a charming person to have lived.

    Can’t help feeling like he might have known he didn’t have a lot of time and he sucked each breathe and made them count. A reputable craze person. You shall be sorely, sorely missed.

    • PurpleiciousBabe

      October 27, 2015 at 1:06 pm

      I agree….
      I have learnt one or two things about him.
      LIVE. LIVE. LIVE.
      Learn to see the good in everything.

      Right now, I think I am NUMB. I realised life can be easily snatched away. I am NUMB because I have kept my emotions away. This is because this weekend I was involved in an accident that could have resulted into a far more worse situation. I was completely HYSTERICAL when it happened. I cant BLAME anyone but instead focus on the TESTIMONY .. I saw the hand of GOD that made me feel there is nothing to worry about. He is truly in a better place,
      So yeah you have to be NUMB at times although not healthy. This is why some people dont react to bad NEWS.

      What happened to him?

    Back then in Ozolua at Unilag we talked a few times, When i heard about his death, the picture that came to my memory was his smiles, he was always very happy and lively any time i saw him. NIGGYDIP, truly you affected the lives of everyone you came across positively. Rest in Peace Bro

    Dipo, because of you, SS 2H was the best class I ever found myself.The pain of not having you around is excruciating. …….I remember how you used to encourage me to “dust” the cane…..how you made me a lover of kirk franklin songs and the different tracks you brought to school for me..
    I also remember the days of NITEL and how myself and my cousin spoke with you for the longest hours……I never believed that the next time I would see you would be in your casket…..It hurts to lose you……I just can’t help but think about you every minute….You are a shinning star because even in death, you still shine…..you will be greatly missed.while there may be life’s unanswered questions, we take solace in the fact that the most high who loved you first has called you up yonder…I pray God comforts your family and fiancee..I’m sure the angels have their nicknames by now…..Rest in peace Oreee mi Oladipo Samson egbedeyi…………..

    I wish the the words i write could raise you up as hearing of your death was heartbreaking. We walked through the walls of Unilag some years ago and for all i can say, you deserve every word that’s been spoken about. You’re full of life and very unique in your way.

    Life is not fair as we know because if it was, how many of our set have died already and shouldn’t it be enough? Some years back after leaving school, i heard of Tolu in System’s death and for weeks i cried and today i still mourn him.

    You’re a beautiful mind and an incredible fellow. People die and due to respect for the dead, we don’t talk about what evil they have done to us or what evil we felt about them but Niggydip like i also love to call you, i don’t have any record of evil cos you’re a perfect gentleman for me…i don’t even come close.

    Yesterday was the day to bid you farewell in body but you’ll live on in my heart. When my son and his siblings grow up, i would let them know NIggydip walked on the surface of the earth. Your very essence lingers on.

    RIP my brother from another mother.

You touched lives… Words still fail me, never a dull moment when with you… I saw you last at Debo’s wedding in April, chai.. it pained me that i didn’t stay too long so you could still crack me up, but i can remember you went to get me food or something… Avwerosuo told me we even took a picture in NYSC camp, i was like, really!!!! I have a picture of Niggy Dip, you and me???

Niggydip, you will surely be missed but i find solace in knowing you’re in a better place

    I look at your pictures each passing day. My heart isn’t able to bare it that you’re gone. I still tried to send you a text today Dipo… Wanted to tell you that Titi my youngest sis got her admission into lag today. You were always persistent in asking me about her admission, and you were even more concerned than I was. Now that she’s got it, i wanna break the news to you, but your number aint going thru… *sobs*. Wish I had honored your invite to Kaduna to see you, but hey,God knows best. You were the best boyfriend one could have. Even after we broke up, we were still good friends. I remember how back then in school, you emptied all you had in your account to buy me a swatch for my birthday. Dipo you’re rare. My ‘Miss Niggydip’ chain tag, which you gave me years back, I’m gonna be rocking it as a tribute to you. This is really hard to bear… But someone like you never dies, you live in our hearts. The people of #jablojablo town (the town i once created as my own version of #dodo as inspired by you, and you liked it) will miss you… Too many things to say about you Dipo.I pray that God grants Yankee, Doc Funsho, Keji, Olumide, mum, Dad, and your fiancee, and we your friends the fortitude and strength to bear your exit. I’ll always remember you… You the best I ever had… Rest well with the Lord Jesus. Still can’t believe this… I miss you.. You’re very fresh in my heart… This seems to be the hardest thing I’ve had to bear. Dipo Samson Ebgedeyi #Niggydip #KingOfDodo #jablojablo. Rest in Perfect Peace. The fun continues in heaven…

    I met you in 2010, I was in law sch then, a friend of mine, gave me your number to help tidy up nysc, but we became fast friends, then you became the younger brother I had always craved for, we shared everything, from your bin confirmed @ oando, to seye, family talks n all, I can almost hear you fondly calling me FGM( fairy god mother) u never failed in encouraging me, esp when I had my daughter, you would crack me up, gisting bout ex’s, to issues @ work to anything. I will miss u Oladipo,I was the very first person who arrived @ the vaults and gardens for your funeral b4 7am I I was there, trying to comprehend, why the dipo who chatted me on Sunday, left me forever on Monday. Your friend I had never met but heard a lot about , walked up to me @ the funeral and said “you are fairy god mother right?” my legs almost buckled under me, @ that moment I felt like you had reached out to me insome way. Till we meet again Oladipo, sleep easy my brother. May God grantt your family and seye the will to move ahead without you.

    Dipo!!!!!!!!! It has been 6 months now but it still feels like i heard this heart breaking news yesterday. I did not think this kind of sadness was possible. I have a lump in my throat, knot in my stomach and tears in my eyes whenever i try to fathom the thought of you being gone forever. I just want life to fast forward to the end when i try to imagine it. It is only God’s mighty power that can help us survive this terrible heartache. I love you Niggydip!! We love you so much Dipo. God help us.
