Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey, DJ Obi, is remembering his father and popular media practitioner, Levi Ajuonuma, who died exactly nine years ago, in a Dana air crash.
Ajuonuma who was the Group General Manager of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Public Affairs Division, died alongside 153 passengers in the crash that occurred on June 3rd, 2012.
Ajuonuma was a Nigerian academic, journalist and public relations expert. He was a radio broadcaster and TV presenter.
Penning a heartfelt tribute to his dad on his Instagram page this afternoon, DJ Obi wrote;
”Today’s date is a strong one. My dad being on that Dana flight still hurts extremely deep. But while going thru pictures of my dad and looking for what to post, i saw this.
We took this last month for my sister’s 40th. Looking at this picture today makes me soooo hopeful. Look how far we’ve come???! It hasn’t be easy AT ALL.
DR. LEVI LOOOK! LOOK AT WHAT GOD HAS DONE. God has multiplied your linage. Look at all your beautiful grand kids, minus 1 and i know from where you are, you have seen him and you are with him. Dr. Levi you did great, your legacy shall be carried on for more generations to come. As much as the sadness might want to creep in today, the future being bright gives my heart joy that forces my face to smile.
So today? I’m thankful. God showed up in a massive way for us. We had no idea how we would pull thru without my dad being here but we are doing it with all glory to God and God alone.
It’s still an everlasting fuck you to Dana as an organization/family business or whatever. This pain you have caused has derailed and delayed many lives. To all other families affected by that plane crash, BE HOPEFUL. You are alive and that is a God given chance to be a blessing to the world around you.
I love you dad and missing you is unbearable. But WE MOVE.
Continue to rest well
Dr. Levi Ajuonuma”
