On Wednesday, August 12th 2015, we lost a loving son, brother and a dear friend Peter Kayode Bello Jnr in the ill-fated helicopter crash that has left many heartbroken.
Friends, family and colleagues gathered at Catholic Church of the Divine Mercy, on Monday August 17th 2015 for a Service of Songs and to share tributes and celebrate his life.
Representing the Bello family was His sister Ajoke and her husband Uju Akwiwu and the hall was filled with people who came in a show of support and outpouring of affection for a well-loved young man.
Female vocalist Lami Philips delivered a wonderful rendition of Because He Lives and tributes were shared by friends Pamela Imoukhede, Mai Atafo, Bristow colleague and friend Gbenga, neighbour Dr Olamide, Temilade Denton, a friend with whom he attended Kwame Nkrumah University; Peter Ozzy, Enyi Omeruah, Mrs. Onigbanjo, Demi Banwo, Adebayo Williams and Noble Igwe.
There were moments of levity as happy memories were shared and the evening ended with a candlelit procession and the release of lanterns.
