The Abiodun family confirms the tragic and regrettable demise of our beloved son, Olugbemiga.

We know there are many questions as to how or why such tragedy would happen to such great individual but still, God is in control.

The past few days have been most trying for the family. We are saddened by his demise but we are comforted by the well wishes and kind thoughts of friends around the world.

Olugbemiga has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life but few had the pleasure of truly knowing him.

He was a down to earth, generous, kind-hearted, idealist and selfless individual who was extremely inspirational to many.

The family hereby, pleads with the public to disregard insinuations being peddled by certain sections of the media about the actual cause of our son’s death.

An official result of the autopsy conducted will be made available as soon as it is ready. Until then, we urge everyone to kindly respect our family’s need to grieve and come to terms with our loss privately.

We remain humble as parents and a family, among several around the world who are bereaved via the tragic loss of a child.

It is never easy to come to terms with the heart-wrenching and enduring agony that accompanies the death of a loved son.

But our family will forever treasure memories of the extremely joyous days spent with Olugbemiga, prior to his demise. Those precious memories will stay with us forever. We are privileged to have some of his amazing, magic moments captured in our hearts.

To everyone who knew him, Olugbemiga was a son and man of immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him more personally, he was a consummate artiste and citizen of humanity. We knew him as a devoted son, a loyal and very generous brother and friend.

We treasure the outpouring of grief, empathy and love from unbelievably wonderful network of close friends in Nigeria and from around the world.

Families rarely experience such stirring warmth, compassion and support as have we, from every corner of the planet.

This has profoundly touched our hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful.

At this moment however, we respectfully request the worldwide media to allow us time to grieve privately, without the intrusions associated with press and photography.

Seye Abiodun

    It’s just painful that these boys have to die this way. Tagbo first and later Olu and Chime. Davido should seat down and think deeply. You guys will be missed however it happened, either out of youthful exuberance or murder. Families will alway have a burning void in their hearts because I know what it means to lose a loved one especially the young ones. And for those that are saying negative things without remorse, I know it’s out of ignorance or just hatred. Cheers!

      What’s the negative things said without remorse? And this has nothing to do with hatred and jealousy. Let’s be authentic and not continue in ways that hasn’t helped the country.
      If there’s a mention of drugs, alcohol, it’s not impossible. And it can be used as a wakeup call and awareness for many.

    I have a lot of names to call Mr. Lawal but I will not. They said disregard the Insinuations and Mr. Lawal did just that. You just can’t listen to simple instructions. Disgusting!

    Noone “can never be at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, if you’re with the wrong crowd.” It’s the truth- nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.

    Almost quite easily have the assumptions tended towards drug misuse and/or overdose – has anyone explored the fact this could be murder? Accidental, in terms of a ‘teach him a lesson prank gone totally wrong’ or cold-blooded deliberate takeout of a person seen as a threat because of his silent but steady growth as a young person with aspirations, skills and a drive to succeed – a Sean Combs or Russell Simmons or even Shawn Carter, with a little Alvin Joiner?

    Gbemiga not only was Deejay Olu; he had an outfit that customised and refurbished vehicles as well as owned a bar/pub – at his young age. Much more than some 40 year olds have been able to conceptualise, let alone implement.
    He is said to have affected people across various demographs positively by what he did.

    Noone is disputing the fact the unfortunately is a drug problem that urgently needs to be combated in this society of ours.

    What if, what if there’s a murderer sitting by who may just get he confidence to strike again if allowed to get away with such horrific act of cowardice?

    May God help us each and every one.
