Friday was supposed to be gala night as stated in the line-up of the events to come up in the one-week Golden Jubilee of Adeyemi College Of Education, instead, it was a night of horror and sadness as a student and a new graduate who happen to be friends and fans of Rapiano lost their lives after being hit by a vehicle.
Jay Rapiano who received the shocking news later that night has this to say:
“I cannot say, and I will not say that they’re dead. They are just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
They have wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
For an old-time step, and the glad return,
Think of them faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here.
Think of them still as the same.
I say, they are not dead—they are just away.
Toyosi, Never shall I forget the times I spent with you; continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours
And God shall wipe away tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death.
Rest In Peace Bola, Rest In Peace Toyosi
Jay Rapiano Ayomipo”
The rapper also postponed the release of his official single and also prepares a tribute song for the deceased, “The Golden Jubilee(ACE Diss)”
May their souls rest in peace
