‘If He Had Gone Back To School, He Wouldn’t Have Died’ – DJ Olu’s Father Dapo Abiodun

Father to late Davido’s friend, DJ Olu, has stated that his son wouldn’t have died had it been he returned to the United Kingdom where he was supposed to commence his postgraduate lessons.


A candle light service was held today for the late Disc Jockey where friends and family members paid him last tribute, with Nigerian music stars such as Mayorkun, Naeto C, Asa Asika and others also present, at the service at Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The service was very emotional as speaker after speaker poured eulogies on the late DJ Olu who was found dead alongside a friend, Chime Okafor last Saturday.

Seni Saraki, son of Senate President Bukola Saraki, spoke about how the late DJ Olu was like the elder brother he never had and would really miss him.

DJ Olu’s mom, Bidemi Abiodun said she would miss his son, adding that his death has shattered a part of her life but she will remain strong because she knew he was resting within the bosom of the Lord, while his brother called him his mentor and friend.

DJ Olu’s elder sister said she saw him as an elder brother even though she was older.

His father, Dapo Abiodun, said he would miss his son revealing that he questioned God for the kind of tragedy that has befallen him.

According to him, “We were very close. I remember I would report Olu to my mother and she would say a tree doesn’t fall from a tree. I saw him for the last time last week Sunday when we had lunch; Olu was always wanting to please me.

“He was supposed to go back to Coventry last week for his postgraduate school but he begged me to allow him to stay for just one week because he wanted to commission his petrol station and car wash business.

“I begged him to go to school promising him that I would help do everything while he was away but he refused. If he had gone back to school, he wouldn’t have died. I pray that I don’t have to reciprocate this kind of visit to anyone present here.”
