I feel so pained right now because @ericarubayi inspired me so much by his stand to sing for Jesus... we met sometime ago and we had a short but great time discussing ministry and the Gospel, we planned doing a song together but I am sure we gonna sing it when I come to where you are now ( heaven ) on the day of Rapture ... It's hard to believe but it's true ...Minister Eric has relocated to heaven... I love your spirit towards Jesus while you were here... God will grant your wife and kid STRENGTH to carry on ...
it is always a heartbreaking moment when our loved ones leave us forever. Eric! i just wish for you to come back, even though i know that will never happen. And just because i cannot overcome the sad news that befell us on this day, all i can do is wish you a peaceful afterlife. RIP to this brother of mine from way back Delta State University .
Efforts to get an official statement from his family proved abortive. He is survived by his wife of three years, Chinonso, and a child.
