Popular Nigerian filmmaker, Mo Abudu has penned a heartfelt tribute to mourn the death of one of her closest friends and ‘brother’, Ozolua Giwa Amu.
Mo Abudu got many going down the memory lane as she took to Instagram to share her warm experience with the demise.
The Ebony Life CEO reminisced their good times together. How the deceased would always check up on her, celebrate her achievements and also encourage her.
Mo Abudu recalled how the selfless Ozulua would call to offer help to someone else; a job, connection or opportunity.
Mo Abudu also noted the demise’s positive contributions to the development of Ebony Life and her other significant investments.
Mo Abudu wrote: “My darling bro, Ozolua Giwa-Amu, there are no words to describe how I feel – empty, sad, and shocked at the suddenness of your early departure.
However, each time I look at this picture of us, taken 8 years ago on the morning of my 50th birthday, it brings me joy and a certain inner peace. I have so much to thank you for. Like many others, my story could never be complete without you, because you gave without asking for anything in return.
8 out of 10 calls from you would always be about offering help to someone else – a job, a connection, an opportunity, or some other kind of assistance. On other occasions, you would call, simply to ask how I was or to say how proud you were of something I had achieved.
You were such a great connector of people – always willing to fight battles for so many of us, almost as if it affected you personally.
My first trip to Calabar was because of you. You had organised for me to go and interview the governor, His Excellency, Senator Liyel Imoke. This one act led to the EbonyLife story, beginning with Studio Tinapa.
To my dear friend Subu, you occupy a special place in my heart. You stood by me when I needed it most, on my Oakwood Park project, years before EbonyLife. My journey would never be complete without the love and support that you and OZ gave to me.
My dear bro, you will be missed. I will miss your calls, your advice, your selflessness, and your love for others.
Subu and Vemi, all my love now and always. I know the good Lord will give you divine strength to deal with this loss.
Continue to rest In peace my dearest bro. God bless you”
