How can I begin this tribute to a young man that left this earth with unforgetable legacies at both personal and corporate levels. Let me begin with the obvious things about him.
He was born in the Month February at Ondo, Ondo State Nigeria. He graduated from the department of Quantity Surveying in 2010. While studying at the department, he was a member of the Redeemed Christian Fellowship (RCF); where he served as the Drama Coordinator of the Fellowship for a period of two years. While I preparing to graduate from the Unversity, he became the new "Drama Coord."
He was a quiet man, but a visible leader. He could be calm; but he was courageous enough to lead "the team of talented guys" back then. After a particular fellowship service; he called all the Drama Department members together and said; "there is someone among us; God said that you are in a wrong relationship, and even you are aware of it. God said that you should leave such relationship immediately". As soon as I heard that, I terminated my 2-weeks old relationship, since I felt as if God was talking to me directly.
Today, I am married to the wife of my youth; and God's blessing has followed the marriage....I owe my realignment to the will of God to this young, bold, diligent and courageous leader of leaders. He might be gone now; but his works abide with us.....the Smiles Productions of RCF, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State abides and we will meet again....right at the right hand of the throne of our Father.
Brother Ayodeji Adediji, rest in peace! Even as the angel told Daniel to rest in peace till the end, when he shall rise to receive his inheritance....yours also await you before the Lord your God...whom you served daily with your life!
