He captioned his post: IT’S A WRAP FOR ADA AMEH. There lies a chip of us Deadpan and ice-frozen. There lies a broken heritage
Wrapped in a funeral encasement. In that air-tight wooden bed. Is our naked truth. No matter the differences we nursed
You can never tell. How much of us is in them. There again is a grim call. A charge to everyone. That none is promised tomorrow
That we may live today as the best of days
Spreading love beyond the bounds of our comfortable thresholds. Till the twilights dim on the hour not foretold. When the once sonorous symphony. Fades forever away. On the morbid horizons. Of life’s curtain fall.”
Recall that Kemi Filani had reported that according to Ada Ameh’s Obituary poster, on August 19, there was a novelty match in her honour at Nathaniel Idowu Pitch, Oregie, Lagos, as well as a candlelight procession at Teslim Balogun Stadium on same day.
