The mother of two, in an Instagram post on Thursday shared pictures of herself in a tee shirt with Jaiye’s face customised on it and also penned a lengthy tribute to him
“It’s been 16 years since we lost my hubby JAIYEJEJE ABODERIN. Still feels like yesterday. I wasn’t sure I could bring myself to write this but I need to,” she wrote.
“Our daughters are 21 and 18 now, all grown up. They decided to do something different this year to honor him. We all miss him and talk about him daily. Jay is not the kind of man that you forget. I smile each time I remember or talk about him because that’s what he represented to all who knew him.
“I cry sometimes because I wish he could have spent more time with us. But God knows best. Anyone who has lost a spouse will understand what I mean. JAY will never be forgotten. His legacy lives on. No matter where we go or who we become, he will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace Obim. #RIP #jaiyejejeAboderin.
Stella and Jaiye got married in 1999 and were blessed with two daughters before Jaiye died suddenly in 2004.
