“I am at a loss for words to express the depth of the anguish I am feeling. I know that every member of my family shares in this profound sorrow with me.

While I understand that the pain may never completely fade, I am not asking for the pain to be taken away. I have faith that God, in His infinite mercy, will provide us with the strength to move forward with life. This pain runs deep, it is the most profound I have ever experienced. I feel lost, but I pray, and I trust that God will comfort each one of us,” he said.

Numerous celebrities, including Osas Ighodaro, Banky W, D’banj, and others, joined Wizkid at the funeral to bid a heartfelt farewell to his mother.
