Veteran Nigerian actress, Stella Damasus, has eulogised her first husband, Jaiye Aboderin, who died 16 years ago.
Newsmen note that Damasus and Aboderin got married in 1999 but the marriage did not last long as Aboderin died in 2004 leaving behind two daughters.
The actress took to her Instagram page on Thursday to pay tributes as she marks the 16th anniversary of Aboderin.
“It’s been 16 years since we lost my hubby JAIYEJEJE ABODERIN. Still feels like yesterday.
I wasn’t sure I could bring myself to write this but I need to. Our daughters are 21 and 18 now, all grown up,” she wrote.
“They decided to do something different this year to honor him. We all miss him and talk about him daily. Jay is not the kind of man that you forget.
“I smile each time I remember or talk about him because that’s what he represented to all who knew him. He brought joy, happiness, comfort, and support to all.
“I cry sometimes because I wish he could have spent more time with us. But God knows best.
“Anyone who has lost a spouse will understand what I mean. JAY will never be forgotten. His legacy lives on. No matter where we go or who we become, he will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace, Obim.”
