No matter the years that have gone by, the death of a loved one can never seem to stop hurting let alone the case of a mother who loses her first child.
Such is the case of veteran musician, Queen Salawa Abeni, who has mourned the sad passing of her first son, Adefolajuwon Akanji Adepoju, who died 20 years ago.
The respected musician recently took to her page on Instagram with a touching tribute to her deceased son as she remembered him again.
Salawa noted that indeed the passing of her son caused a lot of pains in her life and completely changed her life and career as a musician.
"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 musician, however, gave glory to God for still keeping her alive and appreciated those who have stayed with her through it all.
Salawa prayed for parents out there against losing their children. She also disclosed that her deceased son would have been 37 if he was still alive.

"I pray for more strength for you ma, I can't believe its been 20 years already, Lanre was an amazing person the few years we knew him... Keep resting dear friend."
Some months ago, Legit.ng reported that Queen Salawa Abeni cried out over plan to tarnish her hard-earned name and career of over 45 years.
An unnamed individual through WhatsApp sent her messages that some of her never-to-go public photos are with him/her. However, rather than play ball, the veteran singer called the person’s bluff and released their chats with the person's phone number.
