Veteran Nollywood actress, Remi Surutu, has taken to Instagram to pen an emotional posthumous birthday message to her daughter, Ayomikun who would have been 23 today.
She passed on a few months ago after losing a battle with sickle cell anaemia.
“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! With much love from ‘Remi.”
