Tribute to Nnamdi

by Estella

its the morning of 6th March 2014...

I get a ping on my blackberry
excited to receive positive update on your health
The light in my eyes go dark,
The message says You didn't make it!!!
What went wrong? how did it happen? why did you go away? why didn't you win that struggle with death?
Several unanswered questions storm my uncontrollable tears roll down my cheeks.

The earth weeps
A mighty tree has fallen
The Sun has gone black
The thunder roars in anger at the Lightening
A star has dropped from the sky

How I wish I got to meet you when you visited Abuja
I never even got to taste your famous Rock star stew
Nkem told me it tastes so nice
It hurts that you are gone

Nnamdi ,though you have left us too soon
You shall always remain in our heart
The 29th of September and 6th of March will always be marked and remembered.

May Glorious lights and angels guide you through your journey home.

ADIEU Nnamdi Orubele
