    For the Management
    I just got the news of the death of MRS. BIODUN IBITOLA (MAMA REMDEL). This is a great loss to all in the film production and broadcasting industry at large.
    To many of us, Mrs Biodun Ibitola came to the limelight as a dogged, strong-willed and bold Yoruba newscaster (then popular BIODUN AGBOOLA) of RADIO NIGERIA AKURE in the early 1980s (particularly in the pre,during and post 1983 general elections period). I came closer to her in 1987 during an audition when I was making attempt to join the IRIRI AYE DRAMA GROUP.
    She will be greatly missed. May her soul rest in peace. Amen

May her soul rest in perfect peace (amen).

    I know mama remdel very well she is one of those that eat anything that comes to mind. I watch her grow from ordinary actress to producer and to greater things but her lack of food control dragged her to this early grave. She died at 52
    It is a pity, I only feel for her children because remi has other wives

      wrong tribute to the dead
      Don’t say bad thing about the dead

        @Daniel Onwu, Sulaimo did not say it was a tribute. Besides, his submission is not a bad one: it serves us a good lesson. This unwritten code of SPEAK NO EVIL OF THE DEAD makes the living to repeat the same mistakes that the dead had made, and consequently die the same death that the dead had died. The hypocrite’s thing is even that while people maintain this code in the public, they discard it once they are locked up in their closets and speak the unspeakable evil about the dead.

          3 years after, I am just settling back to life trying to read some of those things that were said and written at the spur of the time that I lost my wife. I am sure, the name Sulaimon Olumitutu must be a pseudo name. Yet this person is a human being. I hand him or her to the hands of the Almighty God for judgement that is appropriate to him. He or she shall ********. Remi Ibitola

      You shouldn’t go running your mouth on social media. You don’t know her so you keep quiet. She was never an actress, never loved food and remi doesn’t have other wives so this shows how little you know. So never time you want to run your mouth on social media, get your facts straight. You don’t even know what led to her death and you go posting rubbish. You better watch your mouth before you are slapped with a suit for libel and slander

    Sulaiman Olomitutu is a scandalmongers, I and remi Ibitola were from the same place. he is like a father to me; also his late wife is a devoted Christian.
    so,what you’re saying now is hypocrisy.
    I can see that you are very daft and stupid.
    may God forgive you.
    R.I.P mama Remdel.

    Sulaimon Olomitutu or what was your name again, Biodun and Remi Ibitola are Pastors that led their followers by example, they gave up almost everything for the sake of the gospel. Aunty Biodun will rather give you her food rather than let anyone suffer around her. Go ask Aunty Tope Alabi, Aunty Bisi Alawiye, Femi Fadeyi (Igi Aruwe) and Mama Bola Aare, Ronke Worship whom she sponsored abroad they will descibe that family to you if you had confessed to know nothing about them. but as you have opened your mouth to say such words to her, ****************

    its quiet too early in the sight of men like me, that mama Remdel depart us now, yet to God ,when we already accomplish His assignment for us here on earth we return to give our report and rest. The righteous is gone before evil day. The message here is are your ready? are you doing the right assignment given to you,you might be the next and it could be me.Help me oh Lord to be rightly fulfilled when my time comes to leave this world.
