A 31 year old upcoming Nigerian artiste simply identified as Adeolu, has died after suffering a stroke recently.
Publisher, Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa, took to his Facebook page to mourn Ade who a few weeks ago, asked for assistance in getting a new job as his current job as a marketer was ”stressful”. According to Abubakar, Ade suffered a stroke, was in coma for three days and then died. Read what Abubakar wrote below
I received the sad news of the passing away of one of my mentees this evening. His name was Adeolu and known as ADB.. I met him about 8yrs ago as a young aspiring musician. I got him into the studio and he recorded a song for MODE MEN ( Black Night) and a few other tracks ..
I advised him to get into school and have something to fall back on, he got admission into Uni.. struggled though financially… Finished and did his NYSC.. I’d been planning to get back into the Music game soon and he was always on my list of Artists.. We exchanged chats a few weeks ago, he was working in an Insurance company as a marketer and he wanted something else as it was ‘stressful’.. he forwarded his CV and I said I’d see what I can do.. he sent a reminder on the 16th of July and my reply was ‘I’m swamped with a lot of things but I’d get back soon’ .. and today I heard he had a stroke, was in a comma for 3days and passed away a few days ago..
I cried.. a young gifted life wasted .. How does a 31yr old have a stroke.. and die.. ? He never told me he had any aliments.. Did he even know he was hypertensive? So many questions.. This country is eating its ‘young’ …
RIP ADB.. ?
