It's noteworthy to state that the late granny Ogunwusi fondly called MAMA ALASO might have had the premonition of her death as she had in the last one month been placing kabiyesi Ooni's picture on her chest either while sleeping or sitting  and she was always quoted saying "OLORUN O MA SEUN O TI O JE KI ALA OGOJI ODUN WA SI IMUSE L'OJU EMI MI. MO TI WA SE TAN LATI PADA S'ODO RE BAYII O, KI N' LE SO FUN OKO MI PE ASOTELE ODUN 1974 TI SALE O" GOD I THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME ALIVE TO WITNESS A DREAM OF OVER FORTY YEARS, AM NOW READY TO RETURN TO YOU IN YOU IN HEAVEN FOR AN ETERNITY AND BE ABLE TO TELL MY HUSBAND OF THIS MANIFESTATION OF OUR 1974 DREAM".

The late joyous granny was a devoted Christian, generously accommodating community leader and loving mother of her children mama was also survived by eleven other successful grandchildren namely London based Prince Adegboyega Ogunwusi, a Lekki based real estate magnate Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi, Princess Folasade Ogunwusi Fadairo, Princess Adesola Ogunwusi Olojede, Princess Foluso Ogunwusi Kolawole, Princess Adebimpe Ogunwusi Daodu, Princess Lola Ogunwusi Oyeyipo, Princess Adebambo Ogunwusi Osunkoya, Princess Bunmi Ogunwusi, Princess Adedoja Ogunwusi Olorunfemi and Princess Toyin Ogunwusi.
