Ireti shared several pictures and videos from the burial ceremony on her Instagram account.

The photos capture moments of mourning and also celebration of life.

“Until his passing, our father was the Olori Ebi…he was big on family, loved them deeply and was never too far from home…
That love was very much present over the 2 day period we celebrated his life. Family showed up and showed out!!
E se; e ku aduroti🙏🏽🙏🏽May the good Lord preserve everyone and everything Daddy left behind!!! Ebi,” Ireti captioned one of the videos.

In another post tagged “Gratitude Part 1,” the Tinsel actress penned an appreciation message to everyone who supported her family during the funeral.

She wrote: “Where do I begin to say “THANK YOU”? Is it @ebonyfuneralng for the mind-boggling discount and the utmost diligence & care of my father’s remains from start to finish? Or is it @amtinsel who from the day Daddy died were such a huge pillar of support. Abi aburo mi ni Temitope oko @jesus_knows_the_way who has never let me bear the burden of “firstborn” alone? Maybe it’s @khokho._b, who personally shopped & styled the Omo Oluku’s looks?

“Is it extended family? From Lagos, Akure, SA, America, London, Canada, Ilorin, Ado… they came. The ones who couldn’t come, supported. Or is it my friends…? MY FRIENDS!!!…Ha!!!! E jo mi loju!!!.

“Is it @ofadaboy ??? Nah … he gets a whole separate post. Oro po ninu iwe kobo! Oluwa jomiloju! I believe the best place to start would be to say, THANK YOU LORD, for granting me grace and favour with all these people. I ask that God bless each and every one of you and multiply your generosity towards me back unto you a thousand fold in Jesus Name …Amen.
