May her Soul Rest in Perfect Peace

Though she has passed on but her legendary works will live for ever Adieu!

Adieu Christy Igbokwe

Like the death of Tayo Aderinokun of GTbank, Mrs Christy Essien-Igbokwe's passing teaches that we should strive to leave bold, positive footprints in the sands of time...death is no respecter of person, age, race, achievement nor personality; but what you do, how well or otherwise you do it, are the only things that would determine whether you live on or not...I am personally very surprised at her age; for though I am about 10 yrs younger than she was, she was very very conspicuous in my childhoold & teenage years; that is a prompting lesson for me and a lot others. ......ADIEU MA! your roots would never wither in Jesus name!

RIP Akpenor

I grew up listening to the song 'Seun Rere' by Christy Essien Igbokwe and loved her stressing Jegede Sokoya in 'The New Masquerade'... Her acting skills were immense and of course, she made her mark as a forerunner singer in the 80s... Pray for her family, the strenght to bear her great loss

Adieu Sis....

May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in perfect peace, Amen.

RIP

She a great voice. Life is a short enterprise, she was able to develop her artistic talent, a rare opportunity, in a tough social environment. Her songs will stay after her, thus a life worth living. RIP.

SHE HAS GONE TO D FATHER.

Christy Essien igbokwe lived a legendry life,may her soul rest with the Lord Amen.

God bless her soul

In watever she did she did wit all her heart n soul. A musician of class n an accomlished movie artiste! May grant her soul a perfect rest!
