“Samuel Ekerendu Why? Why do you make me cry like this again? This is just 31 days since I wrote a birthday message for you 24th April but today, May 21 I went to the Mortuary only to see you my brother lying flat on the bed with your nose up, oh the mighty has fallen. I didn’t know I’m not going to see you again. Tears drops down my face as you suffer this much only for you not to reap the fruit of your labour. Rest on my brother. Who will take on with your work?.God knows Better Rip #SammyPaparazi. I will forever missed the happy moments we shared.”
