Veteran musician Queen Salawa Abeni has mourned the death of her first son who passed away 20 years ago.
The musician recently took to her Instagram page to pen down a touching tribute to her son Adefolajuwon Akanji Adepoju who died many years ago.
Salawa disclosed that his death caused a lot of pains in her life and also changed her career as a musician which left people asking if she was still singing or not.
She wrote: “Hmmm!! Today the 2nd of October makes it 20yrs that you left me. My first son Idris Olanrewaju Adefolajuwon Akanji Adepoju. It still feels like yesterday but it’s 20 years already. Your death caused alot of pains in my life.
Lanre, your death changed my life completely, it also affected my career negatively to the extent that people ask me if I am still singing.”
The Waka Queen thanked God for keeping her alive and appreciated those who have remained with her all through. She prayed further for all parents that they will not lose their children at an untimely age adding that her deceased son would have been 37 if he was alive.
As expected, her fans and colleagues took to the comment section to cheer her up.
