MR. and Mrs. Kunle Adedayo, owners of Tastee Fried Chicken are bereaved. Their only child, Oluwabunmi Omotayo Adedayo, is dead!

Oluwabunmi Adedayo, who until his death was an executive director in the company died on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, in Pretoria, South Africa.

He was said to have died of pneumonia.

He was being treated of the same ailment at Lagoon Hospital, Lagos Island, when the situation took for the worse and was immediately airlifted in an air ambulance to Pretoria, South Africa, three weeks before his death.

He was said to have died in the hands of his father, Chief Kunle Adedayo, chairman of Tastee Fried Chicken.  Chief Kunle Adedayo and his wife, Pamela flew back to Nigeria from South Africa on Thursday, September 26, 2013 and have been receiving sympathizers at their Onikepo Akande Street, Lekki Phase 1, Victoria Island home.

Late Mr. Oluwabunmi Omotayo Adedayo’s remains, ENCOMIUM Weekly gathered, were brought back to the country on Saturday, September 28, 2013.

Bearing any unforeseen circumstances, his remains will be committed to mother earth on Thursday, October 3, 2013, at Victoria Court Cemetery, Ajah, Lekki, Lagos.

Late Oluwabunmi Adedayo, 36 (born in 1977), married to Oluwayemisi Adedayo (nee Iwashokun) on Saturday, January 31, 2009, at Christ Church, Jebel Ali, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).  The reception was at Dhemira Milan Hotel, Fort Island, Dubai.

For those who could not make the Dubai wedding extravaganza, a thanksgiving was held at Our Saviour Anglican Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos on February 22, 2009.  Reception followed immediately at KFA Events Place, Lekki, Lagos.

The marriage produced two children, the first a girl is said to be three years and the second, a son is barely four months.

Late Oluwabunmi Adedayo was a graduate of Biological Sciences from University of Maryland, Baltimore, USA and University of Phoenix, Phoenix, Arizona, where he bagged a Masters in Business Administration.  He worked with Credit Trust Bank in Chicago, USA, before coming to Nigeria to join the family business as executive director.
