Lola Omotayo-Okoye, wife of singer Peter Okoye, is currently mourning the passing of her father, Chief Oladipo Omotayo.
The mother of two released an emotional statement via Instagram on Wednesday where she shared the sad news with her fans. Lola announced that her father had died in the early hours of Wednesday.
In her words;
“In the early hours of this morning, I received some very sad news that brought my family’s world to a grinding halt.
My darling Papa’s passing has hit us all very hard, and while we know that he is in a better place, the truth is that, there is no easy way to handle the grief that comes with the loss of a loved one.
However, what we can do, is be comforted in the memories he has blessed us with, keeping our hearts set on the wonderful person that Papa was; the wonderful, kind and generous person he will always be to us and to the many lives he touched with his time here on earth.
My family and I would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love that you have shown us in this difficult time.
Your support and kindness has warmed my heart to the core, and I cannot express with words how much it means to my family and myself. Thank you.
We love you Papa.It hurts badly. And while we will miss you desperately, we know we have been truly blessed to have had a husband, father, brother, uncle and grandfather like you. Till we meet again to part no more. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
