Tributes to #ericarubayi From @uchennaji - Eric! Eric!! Eric !!! We have tried rejecting this news since yesterday, waiting & HOPING for you to just wake up from this deep SLEEP so you may continue with your LIFE's journey , but waking up this MORNING to find out our close FRIENDS have waited all night for you to ARISE but you OBVIOUSLY prefer the OTHER side to this MADNESS we call Earth . Eric it's just been 10yrs friendship,dating back the day Yourself ,Timi , Omawunmi and other walked into our little Maryland OUCHlet after the white West African Idols Toyota bus dropped you guys off at mine for STYLING. since then we have all chased our hustle , The distractions were much to do other Genres of MUSIC but you said you just wanted to WORSHIP God with your music. We progressed from Bachelorhood and became husband and then FATHERS. Eric you need to see the way Jayden looks at my daughter Ophelia whenever Nonso your beautiful and pleasant wife brings him over to our house. Eric it was only you who kept reminding and HARASSING me that I can't let my musical gift just slide and which we always laughed over it, Eric I still remember late 2015 when you called me up on stage to do a song along with you...So we won't share such moment again? 😳😳😳 ? we never had the opportunity to have that PHOTOSHOOT for OUCH...would I easily forgive myself for been too busy to make that happen? Journey well my brother and FRIEND. But wait...Would MALARIA have snatched Eric from us at such a young Age in a Delta-state Hospital if PUBLIC officials didn't STEAL the monies, but had JUDICIOUSLY used such funds provided to make available BASIC and GOOD MEDICARE in that state for that purpose? #Olorisupergal

Saw his pictures yesterday on Instagram and thought it was his birthday.... Until I opened one on @bellanaijaonline and I screamed..... What I know him? He sang at #TE11 Yes na he led the worship... But then this is my consolation (',') 1 Thessalonians 4 Vs 13 - 18 13 "For I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen ASLEEP, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope". 14 " For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus". 15 "For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep".. 16 " FOR THE LORD HIMSELF WILL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN, WITH A SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF AN ARCHANGEL, AND WITH THE TRUMPET OF GOD. AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST 17 "then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet with the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord... 18 "Therefore comfort one another with these words.... Sleep on #Eric you made JESUS known in your own time.... Continue to sing with the Angels in Heaven.....#EricArubayi #ItIsWell
