Tribute for Yinka Olonode by the mother of his 10 month old baby

Tribute for former model and Rhythm OAP, Yinka Olonode, who reportedly jumped to his death from the rooftop restaurant of hotel in Portland, USA on Monday April 29th (Read story HERE) by the mother of his 10 month old baby, Lillie Halpern.
Dear Yinka,
Blessed man, brother, friend, love, father. I miss you so much in mind, body, and spirit. I never loved somebody as deeply as I loved you. If I could have caught you to stop your fall, I would have been there. May your light shine abundantly! I am not ready to say goodbye and I hope we will meet again in another time and another place. Your time was too short. Your gifts were so special. Your smile was so pure. Your mind was a ladder of intellect and curiosity brimming with childlike imagination. We will miss your presence. I leave all things in God's hands. Love and peace. RIP Yinka Olonode 
With Universal Love, Lillie Halpern

Erm, isn't she the one that got him arrested in 2010. She should say what would cause the man she just eulogized to commit sucide cos it doesn't sound like the same person.

Linda, they are called Radio presenters not OAP's. The latter stands for Old Age Pensioner which clearly they are not!!

Beautiful baby... Was really confused when I heard... Don't know why you you did this yinka, may God have mercy on your Soul.
You were a very good, jovial honourable guy in great ife before you left for unilag. You were grounded in the word of God, you had a great personality. You will be missed and you have a gorgeous baby and a partner who clearly loved you. I don't know what more to say.... Rest in peace Yinka

This is the most shoking news ever read on ur blogs,being a unilag student I know there is this surviving spirit in every unilag student no matter the family background,for yinka to have commited suicide dat is something I don't understand,suicide has never be an option for any nigeria citizen no matter the challenging we face,I believe something is wrong somewere,or probably He is dead before droped from d 15th floor,America need to do more investigations .

So sad. Jesus save us o. Yinka RIP. Meanwhile dear Lisa they are On-Air Personalities. Like it is said here 'thank me later'

There are reports of Nigerians committing suicide in the papers almost on a weekly basis.

Why did you all get this mantra of 'Nigerians don't commit suicide'.

In the past families didn't usually report suicide because of the societal perception of it but these days, its in the papers constantly.

i knew u as noble when u wea at rhythm. A young girl having a huge crush on a radio presenter n luckily a jambite in d same unilag wea u wea studying mathematics at d time.. I recall our first meeting btw law faculty n senate building,i remember so many calls btw us,i would play diana Ross *he lives in miind* n force u to listen to it over the phone, i recall u informing me of ur power bike n how u had a bad accident with it. But we lost contact or mayb i outgrew my crush n sommetimes i would wonder wea u wea for i really only knew u as noble. Spotlessly handsome,witty n friendly....words cant describe how i feel.u disappear only to appear dead. May u find comfort in the bossom of God,find forgiveness n eternal rest. Nobleeeeeeeeee

Ode @Lisa, stop making ur stupidity public! Evryone wants to act lecturer here! Mtcheeeeew.........OAP stands 4 On Air Personality n clearly Yinka is one so apologize 2 Linda madam I too know

Pls shut up , people go through deep depression and Nigerians who commit suicide don't have a choice just like some Americans. If we turn to our fellow Nigerians , ya all gon judge our mental illness cause ya all don't get it and me saying "mental illness" to a naija puts me in a place to be judged. The poor guy did wat he had to do cause he couldn't fight it no more . I won't share my story but I went through hell and sometimes still don't believe am still here . I wish he could av managed to live through the pain tho but this life just Isn't easy sometimes , it Isn't for no reason.

@ Lisa, OAP refers to "On Air Personality". The same acroynm can represent different things depending on the niche in which it is being used.

O.O OMG! How can u just boldly display ur ignorance (in d name of correcting Linda) for everyone to see??????? HABA! But google is your friend now. The acronym doesn't stand for only one thing u know.

OAP stands for on air personality or so it may also stand for old age pensioner but clearly linda is right here.
