Yinka Ayefele Honours late Kola Olawuyi

 Yinka Ayefele Honours late Kola Olawuyi

When Anjolaoluwa, the first child and only daughter of late broadcast journalist, Kola Olawuyi, decided to tie the knot with Olumide Vigo, the only son of late socialite, Charles Olufemi Vigo on Saturday August 14, 2021 it only made sense that the choice musician of the day would be Yinka Ayefele. And the reason is not far fetched. Ayefele was a young friend and protege of Olawuyi who anchored the famous Yoruba radio show, Iriri Aiye, which later transformed to a television show titled Nkan N’be. In fact, it was while Aiyefele was driving from Ibadan to Ogun State, to stand in allegedly for Olawuyi who was out of the country, for his radio programme, that he had a ghastly motor accident that left him confined to a wheelchair.

Besides his kindness towards him, before and after his accident, Ayefele felt that the only way to honor the memory of the man who he looked up to, was to perform at his daughter’s wedding free-of-charge. In his characteristic manner, he serenaded the high profile guests who turned up for the event, some of who came in from outside the country at Marcellina’s Place, Ikeja, GRA, venue of the wedding. The couple reportedly met on Facebook. While the groom works in an Oil Servicing Company, the bride is a Chartered Accountant with Price Water House Coopers.
