Tiwa Savage, Nigerian singer, has penned a touching tribute to mourn the demise of Obama DMW, the music executive and close associate of Davido.
Obama, whose real name is Habeeb Uthman, died of suspected heart failure at a hospital in the Lekki axis of Lagos state on Tuesday.
“Brave heart, strong heart, soft heart, kind heart, pure heart, peace maker, hot stepper, incoming politician, I know you’d want me to add “stylish” to this list…,” she wrote.
“Someone said they tried to ruin your reputation but you saved theirs by not telling your story. I’ve never met anyone as brave/strong as you who was also as soft and kind as you.
“I don’t know why my cheesy jokes always made you laugh, you were ready to take a bullet for your loved ones. 44 my black president, you chilling now, resting well, away from this cruel world.
“All your boys are a wreck, I’m sure you see them all crying like babies. You better tell them to be strong men
I’m allowed to cry, I’m a girl so don’t try to console me, I won’t listen to you anyway.”

Tiwa Savage promised to continue with the project she and the deceased discussed prior to his eventual demise.
The singer also pledged to support Abdulmaleek, the deceased’s son, where necessary.
“I really don’t know what you were trying to prove sha, by leaving like this. It is so unlike you. This isn’t the end, that thing you and I always talked about. I promise I will do and you will be proud,” she added.
“We are only burying your body today cause your beautiful spirit can never be contained in that sand and don’t worry we got @manlikeabdul_omw. He must finish university or imma whoop his behind. I love you, we love you Habeeb.”
