Tolu and Jimmy, children of Senior Pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Taiwo Odukoya, have penned an emotional tribute to their stepmother, Nomthi, who died on Tuesday after a two-year battle with cancer.
WuzupNigeria reported that how the senior pastor got married to the South African in 2010 after the death of his late wife, Bimbo.
Bimbo was a victim of the 2005 Sosoliso plane crash.
According to Jimmy, a Nollywood actor, the onus is now on him to take care of his father and her sons.
Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun also took to her Instagram page to mourn Nomthi, appreciating the deceased for taking care of her father.
She said, “Aunty Nom, You were such a beautiful light, an authentic Christian, and a woman that truly loved God. You were such a fighter. Cancer didn’t win; God wanted you all to himself and called you home.
“To say we will miss you is an understatement. Thank you for Tim-Tim and Jom-Jom. Thank you for loving my Dad the way you did. No more pain, Aunty Nom. Rest in the bosom of our Lord till we meet again to part no more. Good night, Aunty Nom.”
Nomthi and Odukoya in their 11 years of marriage have two sons, Jomiloju and Timilehin Odukoya.
