Since the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu, a few days ago, many celebrities, politicians of class, business moguls have been speaking glowingly of how much they will miss the grassroots politician and businessman of great repute.
But one family that will never forget Senator Buruji Kashamu for years to come is his immediate family which comprises his beautiful wife, Mrs Susan Kashamu, Hajia Sherifat Kashamu, the first child of Senator Buruji Kashamu and her siblings and all the deceased’s blood sisters.
Unlike every regular father or rich man, Senator Buruji Kashamu invested in his family. He was not only a family man, he made sure all his family felt his presence. All his children went to the best schools abroad and they are silver spoon kids who are also well mannered.
Another striking thing about all his children is that they have a striking resemblance with their late father. They have same facial attributes, there is no way you will see the Kashamus and not know them.
For his beautiful wife, Mrs. Susan Kashamu, she has lost a friend and a gist mate. Despite the age gap of over 20 years, they loved each other to the bone. Mrs Susan is in her 30s, while her husband is in her early 60s. They are one of the celebrity couples many love to see at parties. That was why many felt her pains when she was seen at her husband’s burial last week. She hasn’t only lost a friend, she has lost a father, a confidante.
Seeing her clad in a black Jalamia with her dark sunshade, one could see how shattered she was. They have been married for over 7 years. They loved each other to the bone and it was obvious. There was no way you will see Buruji’s wife, Susan, and not see her husband.
What about Buruji’s Children? Not many know his first child, Sherifat Kashamu. She has been with her husband for over 7years. Though she is based in the United Kingdom, but she is an integral part of her father’s life. They are very close. Of course, Hajia Sherifat, who is happily married to Adekunle Abidemi Ademakinwa never jokes with her siblings.
Have you seen Buruji Kashamu’s first son, Junior Kashamu? He shares a strong resemblance with his father though he is fair. He is very tall too. He was present just few days ago when the Kashamu’s held a special Fidau for his father.
Of course, it is not just Hajia Sherifat Kashamus alone that is Senator Buruji’s daughter. He also has other 3 daughters, while Mrs Susan has 2 handsome sons who are still toddlers.
Do you know Senator Buruji Kashamu shared a very strong bond with his siblings? This was evident when Buruji’s mum died last year. All members of the Kashamu’s family were all visible. Alhaji Tayo Kashamu, Alhaja Busurat Kashamu, Pastor Otutu Kashamu, led all the Kashamu’s family to Lagos for the event. There was no doubt about Senator Buruji Kashamu’s love for all his siblings as he told them to join him on the dance floor for the celebrant’s dance.
