Ace Nigerian rapper Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, Nigerian aka Vector, has penned an emotional tribute to his late father four years after his demise.Teslim Ogunmefun, Vector’s father, passed away on 5th July 2017, after he had battled with a brief illness.
But on Monday 5th July 2021, the 36-year-old songwriter took to his Instagram page to put out a heartfelt eulogy, reminiscing some of the legacies of his late dad.
The rapper also recounted how his late father, who was a police officer, once assisted a lawyer who represented him in court, adding that he gets his self-confidence from his father.
“I had a court case at a time, I lost everything I had (and I hate asking for help from anyone… even my own parents),” he wrote.
My Dad walked into the courtroom on the day set for hearing and my lawyer, in that case, lost his s**t. “That’s the man I was telling you about all these years,” he said to his partner next to him.

His friend was killed in a failed brake accident in Ibadan (I think) and when they got there, they were going to shake the driver with all their might and connections but my dad welcomed them in his office and asked if he could read them some Bible passages before they commenced discussions.”

They left the office letting go. He didn’t see my dad anymore till the day I had a court case he represented me in and my dad walked in.
I learnt about resting in peace from the life my dad lived. To say “rest in peace” is a lie if the person who died didn’t leave good memories of him/herself.
If you wonder where my confidence comes from, it is in knowing the son of whom I am. you have seen me smile many days, see me cry… Today is different. Teslim.”
In November 2019, Vector released ‘Vibes Before Teslim: The Journey To Self Discovery’, his 4th studio project, in honour of his late dad.
