Tomi Nigeria Bids Papa Africa Farewell

Sincerely, I don't even know what to write; better still, where to start from. How do one bid a legend- mentor of mentors, leader of leaders, farewell. What will one say about Mandela that has not been said; what will one write that has not been written?

…..Brain exhausted…having emotional laceration…thrown into a state of utter catalepsy. There are no words to describe this utter grief I'm feeling right now. It's all about nothing but Nelson Mandela's death.

MADIBA…OluOmo Afrika…Papa Africa is gone; gone to take his seat in the ancestorhood. He made the best out of life, leaving behind a memorable print. A man sincerely selfless to his society; dedicated his all to the upliftment of his people with genuine love. Mandela lived a good life, fought a good fight, played his role as diligently as it could be played.

He etched his name in Gold into people's mind. Good-Night MADIBA; “Sleep on, sleep and take thy rest lay; down thy head upon thy savior's breast. Sleep in Peace!
