Popular Nigerian comedian, Musa Afolabi, popularly known as Lasisi Elenu, announced the death of his mother, Grace Afolabi, after a long-time illness.
The comedian announced this shocking news on Tuesday March 1, 2022, via his Instagram handle, adding that she was her number one fan.
On his post, he captioned:
"So this is truly how it feels to lose someone so precious to you. This is the saddest moment of my life.
With so much pain and a heavy heart I say Rest In Peace Mummy. “ Madam Grace Osaivbie Afolabi” is gone!! You were my biggest fan. You laughed to the littlest things i did or said, even after you couldn’t control your laughs, there were still so many things I knew “Yeah this would naturally make Mummy laugh”
Damn you were strong, too strong, You fought sickness for so long. You fought and gave all you could. The world was so unfair to you for so long, You battled illness for too long. Times you ought to have spent in joy and celebration with your family, you spent fighting for your life.
No one ever truly knows the pain we all go through individually even while fronting a smile to the public. Mama Itohan was a strong woman, she was sick for so many years and I lost her to death. “Damn you death” I wished she enjoyed life more, not in sickness and pain But in sound health. The last 1 month was too tough on YOU. YOU went through so much pain in the hospital and the last words YOU kept saying each time YOU managed to talk was “I want to go home"
