Former BigBrotherNaija housemate and new mum, Tokunbo Idowu, popularly known as TBoss took to Instagram in the late hours of Tuesday to pen a tribute to her late father, Engineer Vincent Idowu, who died in September 2019. The new mum’s sour relationship with her dad during his lifetime was not a hidden fact but his death seems to have roused deep feelings, and TBoss is opening up about it.
The reality show star who admitted that she was not in good terms with her father before death came knocking, stated that if she could turn back the hands of time she would have done better, be there for her father and also tell him how much she loves him.
The new mum also disclosed that she remembers “all the good and not so good” moment and has also learnt that life is fleeting, sharing also that she misses her late dad very much.
“I honestly don’t think people really understand the concept of Death.
“It is Final. Forever. And forever is a really long Loong Looooonnng time. I wish things were different, I wish I could turn back the hands of time to be there with you, be there for you like I’ve always been, to hold your hand through it all, to tell you how much I loved you, to forgive you, to forgive myself. I’m so sorry.
I know you’re in a better place and have finally found the purest form of peace, peace that you never knew here on earth but Toksy misses you so much Tata. I miss you so much.
I know that eventually, gradually the pain would fade away.
But for now, the tears keep me company, I remember all the good and all the not so good, I smile remembering the many pleasant times
But most especially I have Learnt- I Learnt that life is fleeting and the idea is to make and leave as many positive memories as possible.
Engineer Vincent was a lecturer at the Department of Civil Engineering, Ambrose Alli University (AAU) before his demise.
