Peter, one half of the now defunct music duo, Psquare, took to his twitter page on Wednesday night to announce the the death of his father-in-law.
“My dear father-in-law. Chief Oladipo Adewale Omotayo aka “Papa” We will surely miss you! Your beloved Daughter Lola Okoye and your grandchildren Cameron & Aliona Okoye misses you desperately and even more! Adieu Papa,” he tweeted.
Also, Lola Omotayo- Okoye in a post on her instagram page expressed shock at the death of her father.
Her post read in part: “In the early hours of this morning, I received some very sad news that brought my family’s world to a grinding halt. My darling Papa’s passing has hit us all very hard, and while we know that he is in a better place, the truth is that, there is no easy way to handle the grief that comes with the loss of a loved one…
“We love you papa, it hurts badly. And while we miss you desperately, we know we have been truly blessed to have had a husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather like you. Till we meet again to let no more. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.”
Peter and Lola got married in 2013 and they are blessed with two children.
