  1. I am speechless. I spent quality time with REMI 3 weeks ago on my visit to 9ija. as we usually do for over 25 years. we both attended chelsea school of art in lime grove london. we opened our shops in surulere in 1985/86 a few weeks apart. we spent days finding how to make the world a better place thru our artistic medium fabric /fashion. until yesterday we were both the last two fashion worriors standing from our era in the 80s.

  2. She is a generous woman……remi lagos may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace in the blossom of the lord…….(AMEN)

  3. I am yet to recover from the rude shock! i visited Nija in Oct and Remi & I spent quality time. You know what ???? I didnt see Remi leaving that soon… as we chatted heartily.
    2 days later upon my arrival to Uk, Remi phoned that she has been diagnosed of ovarian cancer hence she was flying in within 24hrs of the time – that was terrifying!.However, she would like me to buy her a phone and lebara credit worth £50. The irony of this all is Remi has never in 14yrs of knowing her asked me for anything. This was a strange request carrying strange wind that has resulted in strange happenstance!!!!!
    Everythn happened like a whirlwind.I visited her with my husband who prayed for her and subsequently saw her on my own
