Indigenous rapper and YBNL boss, Olamide has laid his mother to rest in a very private ceremony last Thursday, April 5th, at the Ikoyi Cemetery. Being a very quiet and private one, the ceremony had only close family and friends in attendance.
The rapper who was very close to his mother when she was alive, also felt her presence when she had died, and as such, chose to keep the details of her death private. His mother, whose cause of death is still unknown to the public, died on 30th January, 2018. That day was coincidentally his son, Maximilliano’s, birthday.
It was gathered that the rapper’s mother, Ronke Osisanya Adedeji, reportedly died from an undisclosed illness. According to multiple sources close to the rapper, his mother “had been sick for some time” before she passed away.
Although our reporters could not ascertain if she died on Monday or Tuesday to be specific, a source said that “her illness grew worse in recent weeks, and that she was confined to a wheelchair before she died”.
Olamide’s late mother is the second wife of his father who is also deceased, and she is survived by three children; the rapper, an elder sister, and DJ Enimoney. His father passed away in 2015.
Hours after celebrating the birthday of his son, Maximilliano on Instagram, he announced her passing with a black Instagram post and wrote,
“Orisa bi iya o si �����”, which was transcribed to mean,
“There’s no idol like a mother,” in English language.
Both Olamide and DJ Enimoney shared pitch black images on their respective Instagram pages that black day.
The burial was strictly private. Only family members and invited friends alone. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
