The musician was accompanied by his son, Bishop Folarin to Adegboyega’s home.
According to Momodu, “Pastor TOBI ADEGBOYEGA receives the music legend CHIEF COMMANDER EBENEZER OBEY, accompanied by son BISHOP FOLARIN OBEY, at home in London.”
This is not the first time Ebenezer Obey will be thrown into mourning.
On August 23, 2011, he lost his wife of 48 years, Lady Juliana Obey-Fabiyi at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital at the age of 67.
Even the juju singer has had to dispel several rumours of his death. He told NAN two years ago: “I thank God and appreciate my fans all over the world who have been showing concern and care about the death rumour.
“I want everyone to know that God is with me, I am alive and not sick, I am in peace.”
