Music mogul Obi Asika has lost his mother, Chinyere Asika.
The Storm Music CEO, who was recently appointed Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, took to Facebook to announce the passing-away.
My mother passed on Sunday morning and I want to thank all who have called, sent messages, and all her families everywhere. My mother was all love, love for people first, then Nigeria and everything about her language, people, culture, art, music and literature. She has always been the inspiration and driver for all that we do and it has been my eternal privilege to be her only son. It is impossible for me to discuss her in the past tense because I know she lives on within me and so many others. She has always said how she would like to go when it was her time, peacefully with a smile on her face. I thank the good Lord for granting us that favour and sparing her any pain or trauma, that was reserved for us who she left behind. Goodnight Mum your work here is done and God bless and keep you amen. My younger sister Uju has been able to express what so many of us feel and one day maybe I too will be able to express myself in such beautiful language, thanks uju your words as always are pure poetry and pure love. Thanks everybody if I missed your call i apologise its a difficult time for all of us.
