•How Our 30 Big Babes Rocked The Burial
A popular hall in Ikeja called “The Event Centre” came to life on 25th March 2022, as over 30 society big babes and friends of London based society lady, Olufemi Jeyifous turned up for her father’s burial ceremony in Lagos. Olufemi Jeyifous is the first child of her late father, Pa Adeyemi Bennet Jeyifous who died recently at the graceful age of 81. He was survived by his loving wife Bisi and four successful children; Olufemi, Adekunle, Omoniyi and Bisola.
Celebrating the life and time of Pa Jeyifous was remarkable and glamorous. The ceremony began a day before the final burial when Christian Wake-keep was held at the Surulere Baptist Church along Ojuelegba road in Surulere, Lagos. The church also hosted the burial the following day; Friday 25th March 2022. Around 8 am on that day, there was a Lying-in-State where the body of the deceased was displayed at the premises of the same church. Family, friends and well-wishers were allowed to have a glance at him and give him last respect before the commencement of the burial service after which his body would be laid to rest.
Late Pa Jeyifous got the accolades he deserved. He was a prominent member of the church. There he worshipped till death. He was an elder figure of the church having held many enviable positions as patron of two different groups in the church; church ushers and the young men Christian League (YMCL). He also held the position of the President of the Baptist Brotherhood in the church. His philanthropy gesture is worthy of note. No wonder the church held a befitting burial service in honour of one of its icons. He was indeed helpful to the work of God and members of Surulere Baptist Church would forever remember him. Immediately after the church service was concluded, Pa Jeyifous’s body was ceremoniously taken to his residence in the Ogba area of Lagos state where he was buried.
Following the burial ceremony was a grand reception organized by Femi and her siblings. They hosted the entire family and their guests who travelled from far and near to take part in the celebration.
