|TejuBabyFace's Tribute To MIC Boss, Tunji Okunsanya #lagosplanecrashvictim by AmicableEd: 4:26pm On Oct 04, 2013|
This is so touching! The first time I actually heard about Tunji Okunsanya was via Teju Baby Face show and I still can't believe that he is dead! Teju posted this tribute some minutes ago...
#tributetoMIC 1 when I tell my driver that Tunji Okusanya of MIC is dead, I envision he will say, 'ah! man daada to ma'n fun mi l'owo yen!'
#tributetoMIC 2 (dat generous man!) I walked into his office to invite him 2 Season2 of our show in 2010. We had never met but he hugged me.#tributetoMIC 3 He told me how he loved our show and how I would go far up the ladder of Success. I discovered that he liked to laugh a lot.
#tributetoMIC 4 on the day of recording, he came to time and when we were done, he shared money around like a politician going to the polls.
#tributetoMIC 5 and so we would become 'friends'. More like Egbon (elder sibling) and aburo (younger sibling).
#tributetoMIC 6 when my father died 2years later and we reeled in pain and confusion, his boys were there in 30mins with MIC's best hearse.
#tributetoMIC 7 without a mention of money, they took my dad to the best morgue around and immediately started making plans for the burial.
#tributetoMIC 8 in his office, he gave me my pick of the best coffins and asked me to bring any amount of money I wished
#tributetoMIC 9 'I could do it for free', he said, 'but I don't want you to bury your father in a coffin that costs you nothing'.
#tributetoMIC 10 on burial day, he personally carried my father's body all the way to our village, Ajaawa, in Oyo State. He spent the night.
#tributetoMIC 11 next morning, he danced in front of the coffin to and from the church and personally laid my dad to rest.
#tributetoMIC 12 he also stayed for the party after, 'spraying' money on us all as we all danced to Shina Peters, trying to bury our sorrow
#tributetoMIC 13 when I returned to thank him in his Lagos office, he was wearing a beautiful pair of slippers. Black and obviously costly
#tributetoMIC 14 'I like your slippers Uncle', I said. He immediately removed them and insisted I must take them there and then!
#tributetoMIC 15 I protested long but he wouldn't budge. If you see me wearing a pair of Italian leather slippers, them are the ones.
#tributetoMIC 16 He explained to me how life was just fleeting and how we should try our best to avoid unhealthy attachment(s) to anything.
#tributetoMIC 17 you see, having buried so many, rich and poor alike, he had a view to life dat was uncommon & probably wholesome in health.
#tributetoMIC 18 he also agreed to come on our show for the 2nd time setting a record as the only Special Guest to have had that honor
#tributetoMIC 19 when it was time to get married, he danced behind me on the engagement day, wearing my colors and yes, sharing money. Again
#tributetoMIC 20 Not minding age, he threw himself prostrate beside me and my friends as we 'begged' for my wife in d tradition of the land.
#tributetoMIC 21 He would call me up every now and again, always chuckling. 'Iyawo mi nko', he would ask? (how is my wife?)
#tributetoMIC 22 He was in d habit of saying to my family, 'I love you guys'. I am not sure I ever said d same to him even though I felt it.
#tributetoMIC 23 and so I woke this rainy day as even the skies mourned and shed tears thinking 'surely if good deeds meant anything...
#tributetoMIC 24 'surely if good deeds mean anything, this was a man who did not deserve to go thus. Surely not in this manner?'
#tributetoMIC 25 But what do I know? I am just another traveller on this parched tract. Your work and Legacy live after you Uncle Tunji.
#tributetoMIC 26 I love and will miss you. In the words of the yoruba people, 'O ye Olorun bi ko ye Eniyan'. (God understands all mystery)http://www.kemifilani.com/2013/10/ay-comedians-tribute-to-mic-boss-tunji.html

This piece was supposed to be a touching one,but the OP's state of confusion made it look like thrash
|Re: TejuBabyFace's Tribute To MIC Boss, Tunji Okunsanya #lagosplanecrashvictim by homesteady(m): 5:03pm On Oct 04, 2013|
I did not even notice it! I'm sure the OP meant Teju babyface!
|Re: TejuBabyFace's Tribute To MIC Boss, Tunji Okunsanya #lagosplanecrashvictim by thorpido(m): 5:08pm On Oct 04, 2013|
Is it Teju babyface or Ay?#confused
I felt this man's loss.A man who carved a niche for himself and has been working hard at his biz.
I just didn't think he deserved to go this way.
Life is a mystery.RIP
