The heartbreaking incident has plunged the Odegbami household into sorrow, with the loss of their loved one casting a shadow over what should have been a day of joyous significance.

Oluwagbeminiyi, described as a highly gifted and multi-talented young man, tragically passed away after a sudden and unexpected illness. Just a day before the tragic incident, he had reached out to his father seeking guidance on a documentary project they were collaborating on.

Segun Odegbami, fondly known as ‘Mathematical’ during his playing days, was unaware that this would be the last communication he would have with his son. Shortly after their conversation, Oluwagbeminiyi was rushed to the hospital, prompting a flurry of phone calls to Segun Odegbami.

“Gbemi, until his death, was unfamiliar with the world’s complex ways. His easy going life was totally harmless to anyone. His love riveted on his little son, his mother, his sisters, his music, his cooking, his song-writing, his friends and his current work in the radio station – probably in that order, “ Odegbami stated.

Despite the profound loss, Segun Odegbami finds solace in the belief that his son’s soul is now at peace with the Creator of the Universe.
