Nigerian rapper Olanrewaju Ogunmefun aka Vector, has paid tribute to his late father, Teslim Ogunmefun.
The rapper posted on Instagram a picture of himself at what seemed to be a funeral with an emotional tribute to honour the memory of his father, saying, “I had a court case at a time. I lost everything I had (and I hate asking for help from anyone… even my own parents).
“My dad walked into the courtroom on the day set for the hearing, and my lawyer, in that case, lost his sh…t. ‘That’s the man I was telling you about all these years,’ he said to his partner next to him.
“His (my lawyer’s) friend was killed in a failed brake accident in Ibadan (I think), and when they got there, they were going to shake the driver with all their might and connections. But my dad welcomed them in his office and asked if he could read them some Bible passages before they commenced discussions. They left the office, letting go,” wrote the rapper.
Vector added, “He didn’t see my dad anymore till the day I had a court case he represented me in, and my dad walked in. I learnt about resting in peace from the life my dad lived. To say ‘rest in peace’ is a lie if the person who died didn’t leave good memories of him or herself.
“If you wonder where my confidence comes from, it is in knowing the son of whom I am. You have seen me smile many days; see me cry today is different.”
