    More than a year after his passing is when you’re finding out he’s dead? Wow. The guilt you must be feeling must be crushing. When life is combined with a reliance on the social media, it can rob relationships of time to do things right.

    Rest on in peace Ayke.

    The finest guy I’ve met yet, so handsome and yet so humble. He always called me “Oyibo” or “Mon Cherie” Your death made me to realize this life is actually vanity. If a hot, intelligent, humble, young man full of life and with a perfect future could just vanish out of earth, then what is life again? Just so you know, I still look at your Whatsapp profile picture on my phone, still scroll through your Instagram and Facebook page just to console myself. It’s a pity your life ended before it began but the good thing was that you left a positive impact on everyone you met…..I’m yet to see anyone who speaks bad of you. Rest on Nwoke mara mma. My able Doc.Shame on you death. What more can you do? You will never be forgotten. 😭😭😭

    I know him. Ayke. Very fine dude. Really good looking and not at all self-possessed because of it. He’s the first guy to ever give me a very very orgasmic rim job; my god, he was good at it.
    I swear, for the longest time after I learned of his death on Facebook, I thought it was a social media prank. It took some calls to his number and to mutual friends (some who didn’t even know) to confirm the tragedy. Truly a loss. 🙁
    RIP, Ayke.

    You never know how cruel death is till someone close to your heart passes on……….a vacuum never to be filled again . So sad…………. 😥 😥. And how ironic that I am actually dying for what he accomplished B4 he died…. … Life.

    As for Social Media, it is actually not helping matters at all. It gives that fake illusion of being there but yet you might actually not be there. Emojis r just not enough….. Words r just not enough….. Pictures are just not enough.

    If only we could see beyond what goes on behind the camera and keyboard…… If only….. 😥 😥.

    To all ye on vocal rest and those that never have credit but yet are way richer than me……..hear word. You never know……..

    Bye Friend. Your friends miss you.

    I know iyke for a year in the school hostel.We got admission together in 2006…
    Then I had friends who were his room mates that I go to see.
    demands,after one year of pre med school in the campus,they had to move to Okofia..that was the last I saw him regularly,as I see him when he comes to see my good friend in the hostel…
    ere was a time I was asking my friend his classmates in medical school about him,it was then he told me that iyke is dead.
    I was shocked,called my friend who he was dating then to tell him..he too didn’t know of his death..it is well..We meet to pass no more..
    iyke.

    What kind of barbaric custom is that? So he was tossed into an “evil” forest and left to rot? I better stop here.

        I don’t know if it’s just the Igbos that do it, but it is sad and annoying! A cousin went same way too. At least find a cemetery and bury him! Not discarding a human being like a piece of used toy. This Buhari change needs to pay culture a visit biko!

        Yorubas say a prayer “May parents not know the resting place of their children”. They take it literal really. I for one have seen instances where parents have actually been prevented from knowing where their kids are buried. Evil forest tho…its such an extreme

    His death Still pains me so much.
    Towards the end he started pushing everyone away, but I shouldn’t have let him. I should have stayed and been there with him till the very last. Each time I remember him, my heart bleeds all over again. He was a sweet soul, kind and very sensitive too.
    I cannot still forgive myself for not noticing you We’re pushing me away to lessen the pain of your passing, I should have picked up on the conversations of you not being around anymore. I was so mad at you for building up walls, I should have fought to tear them down and know what was wrong.
    I’m so sorry Ayke, I should have been there.

      You are very right. He did have a tendency to build walls. I figure if I was available in the country at the time, I would have known and perhaps offered other assistance if possible. In any case, I have made my apologies to his sister and insisting on making arrangements to visit. Maybe that would be another story

        Reading 1st Paragraph, I knew it has to be Mr kritsmorris the unconventional man.. For peace, u can call all his friends, host a post mortem dinner, candlelight, songs of praise, anything in his honor. .. Unfortunately I didn’t know him…. But death is the end of all creature, may we all be remembered by the goods we did or have done.. Cheers

    i lost a friend early this year too, i saw him few week before his death, he was sickly skinny, I couldn’t even tell him because he already complained people were telling him that, then i got a call he’s dead! How? Only male son of this single mom and graduating uni next year. i cried and cried, the pain was indescribable. Death is the one thing I’ll never understand why jt happens, it’s really the cruel part of nature. Sorry for your loss. what’s Ayke social media handle?

    Gay’s are fond of writing this kind of epistle always when it’s too late….I noticed this a long time ago as such I’m okay with having even if it’s just one sincere friend than all the fair whether/good time friends,who are only after the fun,parties,gossips and things you can offer them but never to be in touch when you really need them for emotional support…

    Honestly the gay world is filled with phonies and very few people care about each other. At least I’m glad I still have one friend who got my back and I got his.

    Good friends are hard to come by and when you find someone that is always keeping in touch and checking up on you,never take such person for granted! I dumped some sorry ass so called friends this year and I’m happier for it..

    They miss me now that I’m gone and in future I will become more receptive to becoming close to straight guys they even seem more honest and caring as friends .I have few who I have tried to create distance with both they never give up.. .

    Gays are full of pride and ego and no one will pick up the phone to call first.

      Sweetheart, I am quite sure u missed out the part where the deceased put up walls to shut ppl out. If you weren’t in such a hurry to post rubbish, you might not have missed it in the comments. Just so you know, there are times when you want to bear ur own burdens without involving even your best friend. Its HUMAN nature not a ‘gay thing’. Bitch, take several seats abeg😒😒

        You are very very stupid for the nonsense you just wrote to me..

        If you weren’t in so much hurry to type nonsense and show ur lame attempt at being a Bitch you will read properly and understand that I’m necessarily not blaming this particular writer and just speaking in general of what happens in the gay world and now that you speak of him building a wall,even the writer didn’t care enough to contact him as much,cos if he did he won’t be hearing of his death after like a year….Reasons why the gay world is fucked up!

        Better go and find a cure for whatever is making you so mad this beautiful cold day instead of trying to direct ur frustration upon me..Bitch kole werk! Go choke on a dick Lool

        Ahhhh yes!!! Terrible grammar and piss-poor spelling, and I am the one accused of non-comprehension. See that concluding statement? Right before I called you bitch? Read again. If you didnt hate urself so much for being gay, it’d av made more sense to u. I should perhaps change ‘bitch’ to ‘moron’. Suits u even better

    Hmmmmmm, all I can say is just as it is in relationships, one size doesn’t fit all. It’s all about knowing your friends very well and being comfortable with how they function.

    That someone is all up in your business 24/7 don’t mean they will be there when you TRULY need them. No guarantees at all.
