Epe indigenes, including the local government chairman, Adedoyin Adesanya, have paid tributes to the late Davido’s road manager Uthman Habeeb-Ademola aka Obama DMW.
Obama DMW died on Tuesday.
Many of the indigenes said Epe had lost a vibrant, supportive, and committed indigene. His friends said he drove himself to the hospital after complaining of breathing problems and reportedly died of heart failure at the Everest Hospital, Lekki, Lagos.
Mr Adesanya explained that Obama DMW’s death was a rude shock to him and his administration, noting that he was committed to finding lasting peace in Epe amongst youths.
“I commiserate with the Uthman family, his business associates, relatives, friends, and well-wishers on this unfortunate loss which happened on June 29, 2021.”
Olufowobi Habeeb-Ademola, a close ally and also an in-law to the deceased, also commented on Davido’s road manager’s death.
He stated, “I am a member of his youth organisation. He was a nice and fantastic man. I will miss him dearly, most especially his role in fighting against social vices in Epe Division.”
Peju Akanji, a friend to DMW’s family, said, “The late Habeeb-Ademola had his own record label, and he had sponsored and promoted several artistes to the world.”
DMW’s friend, Ayo Salami, described the deceased as an incredible young man “with a heart of gold.”
Mr Salami added, “He has raised several youths from Epe Division to a better living. The late Habeeb-Ademola loved to help, a cheerful giver and a socialite. We, the entire youths of Epe Division, will surely miss him so much.”
