Dear Tobiloba,
I have been so anticipating today. I just checked my writing book and you were the first subject I wrote about this year. I am overwhelmed, I really want to write my best piece for you. I wish my vocabulary was as standard as your own so that I will not use ‘everyday words’ because you are a treasure. My treasure! I have so much to say, I cannot express myself clearly because you have been too much of a friend to me.

Mr Zongo, my very retiring friend, most affable person in my life. You are the best Tobiloba. I tell you Everytime and you doubt it. Should I open this chapter with your kind deeds to me? There are so many, is it helping to get a bedspace? Don’t let us even go there. You never judge me! Thank you Eniola!

Our conversation can go from nothing to everything. Our distance only bring us closer. What I love most about our friendship is our Faith. The fact that we can talk about Christ unashamedly. A day in January you asked if I knew Apostle Joshua Selman. That question has opened things up we could have never imagined. You put your heart into compressing a sermon to send to me. When I say you the best. Never argue with me again. Never!

Happy Birthday Tobiloba

You are a genius, you know all those phobia and words I had no idea existed but too humble to take credit. I admire everything about you from the depth of my being. You are a germane part of my life. How did I not know you earlier?

On this blessed day, I pray for you asking God to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God, that your prayers will be answered. You were carefully made by God, not everybody will understand you but we that do Cherish you. I promise to be more objective when you ask for my opinion, to be a better friend like you have been. The enormity of my love for you is deeper than mere words.

Happy birthday Adejumo Tobiloba.

Above all my guitarist, live a blissful life. You have no idea what God is preparing for you; All nations will come to your light and mighty kings will come to see your radiance. Thank God I am associated with Greatness. Thank God I know Tobiloba. Personally, I cannot wait to celebrate you. The world will know….. Soon enough.


PS: Please drop a birthday message for my friend
