Music icon and Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi, MFR, has commiserated with fellow legend, Chief Sunday Adeniyi Adegeye, fondly called Sunny Ade or KSA, over the death of his wife, Risikat.
This is contained in a statement signed by the General Manager, Obey Music Group, Mr. Tunji Odunmbaku, and made available to newsmen on Friday.
Obey-Fabiyi described the news of Risikat’s death as a rude shock, noting it was indeed a trying period for KSA to have lost one of his wives.
“I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort my dear brother, KSA, the children, and the entire family she left behind,” he said.
The renowned musician described the deceased as a kind-hearted and hard-working woman.
“I recalled that she called me personally that she wanted me to play at the reception of the 70th birthday she organized in Lagos for KSA aside from the celebration we had in Ondo, which I granted her.
“I know what it feels to lose a wife because the same thing happened to me when my wife went to be with the Lord over 10 years ago.
“I pray the Lord to rest her soul in eternal peace. I pray God strengthens KSA in playing the role of a father and mother to the children,” he said.
Risikat died on Tuesday, September 21, after a brief illness.
The deceased was a member of the 6th Assembly of the Lagos State House of Assembly and a loyal member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
