When I cast you in my movie Oke Ochicho, we both agreed that it was the stepping stone to bigger roles. And so it was. Your real career in movie had begun. You also excelled so very well in stand up comedy in your peculiar Aba (York) style. Your unique voice separated you from other comedians, some of whom even started copying you. You were an audience’s delight as emcee at events. You were doing so well my brother. Why die now? They said you slumped while doing your business of making people laugh. And I ask “Why would an instrument of joy be rewarded with sadness?” You were hypertensive they said, but I am like “Is laughter no longer the cure for high blood pressure?” Chaaaaiiiii. Deeedem. Uwa enwero isi.

On his part, Bishop Ime Umoh popularly known as Okon Lagos described Dede One Day’s death as a big loss to the industry

    This is enough to shock everyone. Enough reason to make us prepare our ways before God bcos no one knows when death will come knocking.
    Dede one day didn’t know he won’t cross over to 2016.
    What a tragedy, R.I.P Dede one day.
    Give your life to Jesus Christ now, tomorrow maybe too late.
