@nnannaude: “This hurts. My big bro, @DrJoeAbah tweeted about the sandals & slippers he made for him. I reached out & ordered 2 pairs of slippers, it was during the Xmas season yet he still delivered them to me. He was a star, a champion. Rest in paradise, @Ojbest5, thanks for coming our way.”
@akewusolaf: “With all the hardwork? No now. While working so hard when we are not certain of enjoying our labor? God.
Rest in perfect peace bro🕊️🤍🕊️ This one hit harder, jeez.”

@lollypeezle: “To be honest, I’m very scared of death. It’s too inevitable. Someone who tweeted yesterday is no more. May God grant the family of Ojbest the fortitude to bear the loss. RIP Man.”
@Sirdavidbent: “The other day, when Daddy Emekus died, I was quite surprised, but hardly shocked. Surprised because we bantered on the TL, only for me to hear of his demise two days later.
Same with Ojbest. Death is inevitable and will strike at anytime. Sad that he had a promising life ahead.”
@biodun_alao: “This news about Ojbest’s demise is heartbreaking, surprising and jolting to me. It is despairing. May God grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss. May God forgive his shortcomings and grant him eternal rest.”
