When I contracted COVID-19, the fear of leaving my children and family behind worried me. I was also worried about my adopted children in Nigeria and my foundation.

Lola looks after her late friend’s kids as if they were her own children:
It has been two years since Aisha passed away but she spent quality time with her kids and had prepared their minds about how life would be when she was no more. I have made it my duty to always fill in the gap as their mother and try to do things that Aisha would have done for them... I treat Aisha’s children and mine equally. If I was not going to be responsible for them, I would have declined Aisha’s request when she asked me to take up the mantle.
She also mentioned:
Some people have opined that I should formally adopt the children but I consider them to be mine already. There are some relationships that are as good as being blood-related. They will always be their father’s children, I am just there as their guardian.
As of today, Lola Alao lives in Canada. Recently, she posted new pictures of Keji, showing that the girl has now recovered entirely from the surgery she underwent.
