Not much is known about another dreaded disease that’s likely more dangerous than cancer but that’s what killed Taiwo-one of the talented Oshadipe twins ruling the gospel music scene. In few days, October 3rd, 2015 to be precise, it will be exactly a year that we lost Taiwo Oshadipe to the terminal syndrome, Lupus- a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs.
And to immortalize her soul mate, twin sister and perfect replica, Kenny has decided to launch a non-profit making and non-governmental organization to educate and sensitize the public about the dreaded new discovery in town.
Tagged, “The Oshadipe Twins Initiative”-TOTI, the NGO is formed to advocate, promote, educate, research and sensitize the public, mostly young women who’re prone to the disease and with the ultimate aim of supporting those already living with and suffering from the disease.
The “Walk Against Lupus” project is designed to honour the first year remembrance of the demise of Taiwo Oshadipe as well as having notable names such as top celebrities and stakeholders gathering together to deliver paper in order to raise awareness for the disease.
In principle, Mrs. Adeola Salako, the Director of Information at the Lagos State Ministry of Health has confirmed the Permanent Secretary’s readiness to receive the “Walk Against Lupus” contingent in her office as well as shedding more light on Lupus whilst a professor of medicine who specializes on the disease and coincidentally who happened to treat the late Taiwo Oshadipe will also deliver a paper.
Amongst notable celebrities that will be leading the “Walk Against Lupus” mission with Kenny Oshadipe include actresses Mercy Aigbe-Gentry, Iyabo Ojo, Halimah Abubakar, Nikky Laoye and others. The walk procession kicks off from LTV 8, Agidingbi ground on Saturday, October, 3rd, 2015 at 8am prompt going through and stopping slightly at Shoprite, then to the Ministry of Health in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos where the Permanent Secretary, Dr. Omodele Joyce Osunkiyesi is expected to address the contingent before leaving back for the LTV 8 ground for the wrap up of the programme.
We’re calling on well meaning Nigerians and good natured personalities willing to join the walk to get in touch with Kenny Oshadipe on 08063888719 and National Enquirer’s Faith Irabor on 08075481965 for the branded cap and T-Shirts at N3000. Please don’t ignore, come one come all, let’s join hands to raise awareness for LUPUS-the new discovery in town, you never can tell who’s next as victim.
This project is the brain child of The Oshadipe Twins Initiative-TOTI and proudly supported by National Enquirer.
