Popular fuji musician, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde, has paid tribute to his daughter, Wasilat Olaronke Ashabi Ayinde, who passed on in Canada on Tuesday.
Wasilat was said to have died after an undisclosed illness.
Many people have since been expressing condolences to the musician otherwise called K1 de Ultimate over the incident.
Ayinde, however, broke his silence on Thursday in a tribute he wrote to the daughter, describing her as a gift from God.
The musician wrote, “My Olaronke Ashabi: 17th, July, 1983 to 12th, December 2017.These are two dates in history that shall never be forgotten ever in my life. The first, a date you came to this world, and the latter, the day you departed. I give glory and thanks to God Almighty who gave you to me for a purpose. I have seen that several times, that I am privileged to have been your father and also for you to the kind of a child that also doubled as my friend.
“About your sickness, all our efforts, through medical means available to us to make you better failed us, neither was your prayer and that of mine and everybody that loves you heeded by God. Rather, it is a direct word from God Almighty that Allah Subhanalahi Watahala, that He wants you around Him in His paradise and I totally submit to that and never question God for doing that. You embraced God and his commandments. Your knowledge of the Holy Quran is enough testimony to the fact that you truly served your God whom you knew too well inside and outside. If you are able to look back right now this minute , you will see how people across the world are all trying to comfort me and soften my heart with many beautiful words and verses from both The Quran and The Bible, the books that guide us to our Creator, then you will agree with me your death is well celebrated as one already in Aljanata.”
The fuji star also expressed appreciation to people who have commiserated with him.
