Ebenezer Obey speaks on son’s death, says doctors predicted he had six months to live

Veteran musician Ebenezer Obey has opened up about his son Olayinka’s death, saying the doctor revealed he had less than six months to live.

The 80-year-old disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, adding that despite the efforts he made to help Olayinka ‘fight his weaknesses’, he did not succeed.

The statement read in parts, “The doctors called me six months ago to inform me that Yinka had less than six months to live.

“It was very painful and bad news that a father must not hear about his son.

“Since then, l went back to the Holy Spirit to teach me what to do and the result of my communication with the Holy Spirit is the launching of this ministry.

“I have received several condolence messages from all and sundry. l appreciate everyone for their love and concern. l also thank Yinka’s friends for their efforts and support.”

Speaking further, Ebenezer added: “l thank my eldest son, Shina, for ‘coordinating’ all his younger brothers and sisters, for extra and special care for Yinka till the end of his life. I also thank the pastors, elders, and the entire Decross family for everything.

“Once again, I appreciate all condolences, but let us rather turn further condolences to prayer support of this new ministry to help those who are in pain of alcoholism and drug addiction. Get out of alcoholism, get out of drugs. Jesus loves you.”

Olayinka, 48, was said to have died on Friday, July 29, 2022, and interred the next day.
