An embrace, so true, thrilled guests’ hearts when all twelve Okunbo children, his brothers, and widow converged to honour Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo during the momentous service of songs held in GRA, Benin City on the 7th of October, 2021.  Edo State stood still as the large united Okunbo family celebrated the man whose life was a light to millions across the globe. In the presence of close friends, relatives and guests, the family held hands, in unison of spirit and soul, inspired by the heartfelt tribute from Mr Kingsley Okunbo, Cappi’s younger brother. The latter unravelled details of the special bond they shared.  The first daughter and Queen of Warri Kingdom, Olori Atuwatse III, led the rest of the family in a sensational rendition of “We are joint heirs of the Father. We are Family. We are One,” revering their father’s strong family values. Family was important to Captain Hosa, and commitment to all his twelve children always came first. Deep hugs and reassuring whispers would soon follow; conveying a deep sense of oneness. It was inspiring to witness the Okunbo bond – strong and intact, as apparent to all present at the Beninresidence, as well as the thousands streaming virtually.  One major highlight of the event was a stirring documentary on the life of Captain Hosa. The Patriarch’s rich baritone blared through speakers filling the marquee. He declared his love and appreciation in what could be described as a final message to his family.  In conclusion, the event was true in its essence as it gloriously showcased to the world a great legacy that Captain Idahosa is leaving behind. The family will forever be proud of a man they regard as their father, brother, husband and a great pillar of hope.We love you, Captain HosaWe wish you a safe landing to the great beyond.       The post Captain Hosa’s Service of Songs: A testament to the family’s bond appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
