The Abiodun family confirms the tragic and regrettable demise of our beloved son, Olugbemiga.

We know there are many questions as to how or why such tragedy
would happen to such great individual but still, God is in control.

The past few days have been most trying for the family. We are saddened by his demise but we are comforted by the well wishes and kind thoughts of friends around the world.

Olugbemiga has touched so many people on so many different levels
during his short life but few had the pleasure of truly knowing him.

He was a down to earth, generous, kind-hearted, idealist and selfless individual who was extremely inspirational to many.

The family hereby, pleads with the public to disregard
insinuations being peddled by certain sections of the media about the
actual cause of our son’s death.

An official result of the autopsy conducted will be made
available as soon as it is ready. Until then, we urge everyone to kindly
respect our family’s need to grieve and come to terms with our loss

We remain humble as parents and a family, among several around the world who are bereaved via the tragic loss of a child.

It is never easy to come to terms with the heart-wrenching and enduring agony that accompanies the death of a loved son.

But our family will forever treasure memories of the extremely
joyous days spent with Olugbemiga, prior to his demise. Those precious
memories will stay with us forever. We are privileged to have some of
his amazing, magic moments captured in our hearts.

To everyone who knew him, Olugbemiga was a son and man of
immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him more personally,
he was a consummate
artiste and citizen of humanity. We knew him as a devoted son, a loyal and very generous brother and friend.

We treasure the outpouring of grief, empathy and love from unbelievably wonderful network of close friends in Nigeria and from around the world.

Families rarely experience such stirring warmth, compassion and support as have we, from every corner of the planet.

This has profoundly touched our hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful.

At this moment however, we respectfully request the
worldwide media to allow us time to grieve privately, without the
intrusions associated with press and photography.

Seye Abiodun

For the family
