About The Founder
Omotola Olufunsho Ajayi (fondly referred to as Tola), was born on April 4, 1990, in Mushin, Lagos State. She was the daughter of Rev. Omotayo and Dcns. Florence Fatunsin.
Omotola attended Ifelodun Nursery and Primary School and proceeded to Iganmode Grammar School (Ogun State) for her Secondary education. She did a diploma course in Mass Communication from Olabisi Onabanjo University and further studied English Literature at the Lagos State University where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree.
During her undergraduate days, she served as Financial Secretary of the Foursquare Campus Fellowship in which she worshipped. Omotola also served her Nation through the National Youth Service Corps at Ogun State and built a mini-library at Local Government School 1, Ijako for the residents of Ijako Local Government Area. Omotola also worked at EKSU Satellite Campus, Veritable Vine School, and Preach the Word School.
She launched her blog (livestrong.com.ng) with the support of her Husband in December 2015, where she offered encouragement to people living with Sickle cell anaemia using her stories, poems and articles which were sometimes about her or of others close to her.
At relationships, Omotola was a pro, but at the one that mattered she was never in a hurry. Her first was her last and in less than a year, she was married to her heartthrob Olushola Samuel Ajayi, Amazing wife she was and finally she had authority to exercise her crave for neatness and order.
Omotola was a friend to everyone in her path, she always saw the good in people and had a listening ear and encouraging words. She was jovial and fun-loving, full of life with a big appetite. She always had a smile that left an impact upon you. She passed on shortly after the delivery of her son on August 10th 2017 and oh Jesus was the sweet song she sang into eternity.
She is survived by her husband Mr Olushola Samuel Ajayi who loved and cared for her, her son Obed Omotola Ajayi, her parents Rev. & Dcns. Omotayo Fatunsin, her sister Funke Daini Madewa, and her brothers Oluwatosin Ayodeji Fatunsin and Ayoola Fatunsin, her niece and nephew Ini and Zion Daini.
A daughter, Sister, Wife and Friend and a lot more she was. We cannot silently live our lives beneath her shadows anymore but of course she gave us the hope and courage to soar and live Strong.
