In honour of the the Nigerian football legend, Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) penned a moving tribute to the 54-year-old on his Instagram.
“HERO!!! CHAMPION!!! LEGEND!!! My heart bleeds today, not for the Big Boss, but for my friend and brother. Stephen and I, We have a history. Besides being age mates, our paths crossed from time to time. I had the privilege of seeing him at his highest and lowest moments. I Recall when we both modelled clothes for our friend and brother Dakova in the early 90s and how he was such a great person to be around. When his playing days were over and he was grappling with his next career move I had the privilege of being around him. Only months ago he buried his wife and now this. CAN’T BELIEVE HE’S GONE!!! I was in denial and stayed watching channels TV hoping they would refute his death. This is one death that hurts to the deepest places in my heart. Rest in peace my brother and friend, Stephen Keshi the great. #RIP#Blood #DeltaBrother #PainfulExit“
