In an interview with gossip magazine, Encomium, Mopelola, who is the second daughter of late Adunni Bankole revealed that she was told of her mum’s death after her wedding ceremony.

“I know my mom has gone to rest in a better lace. She lived a good life. To everybody she was Iyalode Adunni Bankole, but to us, she was mummy. She pulled everybody close. She used to call me sweet name, like mumsy sweety darling. She was a strong woman that would stand her ground on anything. She had so much energy. She was full of life, nobody really knew what was going on because for her it was important that everything was in place,” Mopelola eulogised her mum while speaking with Encomium.
Adunni Bankole would be interned today in Ogun State.
