Farewell the First Beauty Queen of Nigerian Models

I am speeches.
I don't know what to say. Words fail me now.
The time has frozen before my eyes.
One of my best, kindest and loveliest friends has passed on without saying good bye?
Did you decide to follow a day after Karl Lagerfeld passed on?
The fashion world lost two wonderful icons within three days. How can I say good bye to you?
Over two decades ago, you gave me an unprecedented honour by hosting my first ever solo salon art exhibition in your restaurant at 44, Falolu Street in Surulere on the mainland of Lagos.
All our guests dined and wined cheerfully and in the awesome Christian love of your beauty in dignity and humility of your nobility you served me in front of the guests happily.
