Our attention has been drawn to a false and misleading story published on a blog *(thecelebrityfile.com)* with only one intention to defame Prince (Dr) Dapo Abiodun, who recently formally declared his intention to vie for Ogun State governorship election for which he is ably qualified.
Our natural reaction to such story, which can be best described as an atrocious fabrication of lies and outright falsehood invented from a fertile imagination of an afflicted soul, would have been sheer silence. Prince (Dr) Abiodun is not a personality who accords such vituperation any measure of importance, but because the internet never forgets and its contents may be construed for the truth when not rebuffed, hence this reaction from us.
Setting the record straight, Dr. Dapo Abiodun does not only share his DNA with his children; he plays the role of a father to them all quintessentially, including his late son Olugbemiga whose memories the writers sought to denigrate with their gibberish.
Abiodun’s robust connection to his first son was very deep and it always elicited a debate among his siblings who felt Olugbemiga was always accorded a prime place in the heart of his father.
This belies the notion of an absent father peddled in the article. While Abiodun never accorded any of his children preferential treatment, Olugbemiga was raised with very high standards and ethos, and the bubbly boy lived up to those standards till he breathed his last.
At no point was there any detachment between father and child, as they both always kept each other updates about developments around each other. Oluwagbemiga worked with his Dad and was a serial entrepreneur following his fathers footsteps
Olugbemiga touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life but few had the pleasure of truly knowing him. He was a down to earth, generous, kind-hearted, idealist and selfless individual who was extremely inspirational to many.
It is never easy to come to terms with the heart-wrenching and enduring agony that accompanies the death of a loved son which left the Princes heart broken in a million pieces .
We are privileged to have some of his amazing, magic moments captured in our hearts.
The family will forever treasure memories of the extremely joyous days spent with Olugbemiga, prior to his demise. Those precious memories will stay with us forever. We are privileged to have some of his amazing, magic moments captured in our hearts.
To everyone who knew him, Olugbemiga was a son and man of immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him more personally, he was a consummate artiste and citizen of humanity.
We knew him as a devoted son, a loyal and very generous brother and friend. But his father draws solace from the fact that he (Olu) was older than the days he lived and the breaths he drew.
The late Gbemiga effortlessly combined the wisdom of old age with exuberance of youth thus manifesting as an inspiring bridge between, young and old, past and present. While alive, the past throbbed through him in a mighty rhythm and the future pounded the drums of eternity to which he swayed as the tides and seasons swayed.
Pity he had to depart the world so soon. But DJ Olu made his mark on the world; the brilliant, adventurous entertainer and entrepreneur left pieces of his soul and rousing nature behind. He was endowed with the noblest persona epitomizing kindness, selflessness, genuine humaneness and an extraordinary ability to put a smile on people’s faces, even at the most improbable time.
We can tell you categorically that Olugbemiga did not die of hard drugs, but obviously of carbon monoxide poisoning and this was confirmed by all medical reports .
As regards his marital life; Dr. Abiodun remains a caring and loving husband from the moment he exchanged marital vows with his wife till date.
Linking Abiodun romantically with a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, and possessing an explicit film of the Minister to blackmail her is a fiction meant to satisfy the voyeuristic craving of the writers. A career in Nollywood for the writer(s) may be able to keep them busy if they would dedicate as much energy to their trade as they did to malign him.
Dr. Dapo Abiodun, MFR, Managing Director of Heyden Petroleum Limited is a thorough businessman with high regards for standard practice. The claim that his business is prone to being taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) for likely insolvency is utter falsehood from the pit of hell, and should be treated as such by the discerning public.
The conjurers of these figments are given away as fifth columnist(s) in the opening paragraph of the piece where they revealed that the rationale for the piece is that they are being rattled by Abiodun’s declared intent to become Ogun State’s next governor and immediately emerging as the leading aspirant in the race by miles.
It is an election season; as such, no time is more auspicious for these nauseous souls to expose their bile like now.
As shown in the article, humanity will be trampled upon while utter falsehood will be unleashed on Abiodun’s person all in a bid to cast aspersion on a tested and trustworthy character like Prince Dapo.
Our detractors should be cognizant of the fact that Dr. Adedapo Abiodun’s resolve is very strong and he is more than ready to weather the storms and siege of similar concoctions from any quarter.
