Senior Pastor of the Fountain of Life Church, Taiwo Odukoya, has lost his twin sister, Mrs. Kehinde Hassan few weeks after the death of the pastor’s South African wife, Mrs. Simangele Rosemary Nomthi.
Mrs Kehinde died on December 30, 2021, and the cause of death is yet to be known.
Tolu Ijogun, one of Pastor Taiwo’s children, confirmed the death of her mother’s twin.
Sharing a picture of herself and her Aunty in the labour room, she wrote, “My dearest Aunty K, my birthing partner and one of my closest aunties. You were always there for me when I needed my mother the most. You held my hand and encouraged me.
“To say I will miss you is such an understatement. Rest on Aunty, love you ❤️ “
