Here&Now: The Celebration of Life of Pa Olusegun Ogunseitan (Video)
There is an appointed time for everything, a time for every activity under the heavens; a time for birth and a time to die…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to wail, and a time to dance.
Eccl. 3: 1, 2, 4.
It is said that the best honour you can do the dead is to bury it. And that was what the family and friends of late Pa Olusegun Ogunseitan had done. And this occasion was the reception.
So there was music. There was good crowd. There was good dressing. But the sobriety that hanged in the air was unmistakable.
First to be interviewed was Asipa Akinwale Sodipo. Ans he had only positive things to say about the departed.
It was a well attended reception. There was eating. There was drinking. And there was music. But the absence of laughter and mirth would be obvious even to the deaf mute.
Next to be interviewed was Bosede Adebayo. She too had only positive things to say about the departed.
Finally, a bit of unavoidable dance by Oladele Adekunle Sanusi, the daughter of the departed, her husband, and a small crowd. And even that was obviously marked by a gross absence of excitement.
In his own interview, Adekunle Sanusi, the son in-law said so many positive things about his departed father in-law, and then revealed some great plans to perpetuate the legacy of Pa Olusegun Ogunseitan.
Even this Chief, obviously a friend to Adekunle Sanusi, had these wonderful encomiums to voice about the departed.
Segun Akintemi, another friend to the son in-law. He too had only positive things to say about the departed.
Finally, the daughter of the departed, Oladele Adekunle Sanusi. And who else could know her father better than her? She then took time to thank all who came…including Citymoods.
All others that followed, Oluwatoyin Sanusi, Ajibade Olayinka, Sanya Adewunmi, and Yewande Adeoye, gave only wonderful testimonies about Pa Olusegun Ogunseitan, the departed.
It is said that a person’s good deeds are most vividly remembered after the person’s death. This truism was evident in all the interviews.
From Citymoods…we wish the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss.
