This is a very painful and irreparable loss, but everything must happen according to the wish of Almighty God but we took solace in the fact he left indelible inks in the sand of time. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

It’s now exactly Four years, that a renowned Cultural Ambassador of Yorubaland and 1 of the most Dignified Mentors of our Group, Alagba Adebayo Faleti, OON, passed on and for decades to come, his works, in the World of media, Literature, and Nonyhood will continue to live on and be coveted by everybody.

Though painful, but he died as Hero and he continue to rest on as Hero through his legacy. It is extremely difficult for us to remember Alagba Adebayo Faleti without thinking of his Late Cultural Siamese Twin, our another Mentor, Ojogbon (Prof) Akinwumi Isola. May their gentle souls continue to rest in peace.
