Nigerian singer, Alariwo has lost his mother.
He took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news.
Sharing a photo of his mother, he wrote:
MY BELOVED MUM LEFT WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE!
I was home watching a movie when my younger brother called via wassap
When I opened my phone, I noticed that it was a connect call with all my siblings involved
Before picking, my instinct told me that something was wrong
Tears from the other side and boom, my brother broke the sad news
All I could say was: It is well
My heart instantly became heavy and I felt weak
I just sat down and short of words
Things will not be the same without you
Everything has become so blank.
I will miss you in every moment as your memories will always occupy my mind.
Why you left me so early, is just surprising but who am I to question our creator.. Death took you away you too very early.
Without you, every single second will become very tough to spend
You took care of us and gave us the attention a mother would give to her children
I will miss you mummy
Rest in peace Mrs Josephine Nmabuese Etumudon MARTINS
