Actress Remi Surutu welcomes first grandchild from only surviving daughter


Remi Surutu

Nollywood veteran, Remilekun Oshodi popularly known as Remi Surutu, has become the latest grandmother after her only surviving daughter put to bed.

The thespian, who disappeared from the social circle after the death of her firstborn, has been in high spirits since the birth of her first grandchild.

Recall that her late daughter, Ayomikun, died in 2017 after a prolonged battle with sickle cell disease.

Surutu told Saturday Beats that the newborn shared a striking resemblance with her late daughter.

“Words cannot describe the joy I am experiencing. I am now a grandmother. My second and only surviving daughter was delivered a baby girl last Thursday. I believe my late daughter (firstborn) is back with me. There is no more weeping for me. The baby is my late daughter’s carbon copy. The emptiness of these past years has disappeared and I feel so fulfilled. I never knew I would become a grandmother this soon.

“My daughter is a career-oriented person. She is not really marriage-centric. So, when things began to fall into place, it came as a surprise. I know God ‘spoke to her’ for me. As a matter of fact, my daughter and her spouse told me they were not ready for a child. The only ceremony we have had was the introduction— a formal way of introducing both families to one another. We had planned their wedding for December,” she said.

Surutu also explained who the death of her daughter has compelled her to maintain a low profile.

This is just as she revealed that she was content with how far her profession had brought her.

“I am no longer a socialite. I am a celebrity, not a socialite. I’m content (with where I am) and I’m not after anybody’s achievement. My heart is young and free because I don’t put unnecessary stress on myself.”
