Popular Yoruba actress, Remi Surutu who lost her daughter, Ayomikun some months back has taken to her Instagram page to write a very touching tribute to her on her first posthumous birthday.

Ayomikun who would have been 23 years today died from sickle cell disease.

The heartbroken mother shared an old video of both of them, playing together and wrote:

Though I mourn no more, but the strengths to fight keep fluctuating.

You would have been 23 years old today, but fate beat me to it.

For 22 years and a bit more, I watched you grow. I enjoyed every glamour of your innocence and the love you practically shared with all and sundry.

For 22 years and a bit more, I watched you fight. Till date, your strengths scare me. I do not know where you got such energies from.

I didn’t experience in you the myth that fighters are always troublesome to handle. You were ever calm, obedient, cheerful, respectful and concerned.

I can’t forget it all…your beauty- in character and appearance. 

The elegance in your walks and the tenderness of your voice. You within a brief moment of existence lived an exceptional life.

Keep resting, baby.

Ayomikun…Ejika mi!
