Herbert Wigwe’s Daughter, Tochi, Tearfully Shares How Late Brother Saved Her Number On His Phone


HERBERT Wigwe’s daughter, Tochi, could not hold her tears as she shared the name her brother saved her number with before he died.

The late Access Holding’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Herbert Wigwe’s daughter, Tochi revealed this while paying tribute to her brother, Chizi Wigwe at his memorial service.

Tochi remembered that her brother saved her name on his phone with the name ‘Tochi’s sister’ while she in turn saved his number with an ATM emoji.

Tochi also thanked Chizi for his efforts towards her growth and for being more than a friend and confidant to her during his days on earth.

In her words:

“I’ve been grappling with the words to honour Chizi since I received the devastating news. But on Thursday evening around 7:03 pm, I felt a whisper of silence, a sign that nudged me to express what was in my heart.

“It feels as though God meticulously designed Chizi and me to be siblings. I used to joke that if we weren’t related we would either be sworn enemies or inseparable best friends. Chizi, you were not just my brother, you were my confidant, my partner in crime, my best friend.

“I am forever grateful to have experienced a bond with you that transcends words, a love that was unwavering, a sense of protection that was ever constant. Though we must part for now, I take solace in the belief that we will reunite someday.

“Until then, my corporate rockstar rest easy and continue to watch over me from above. You forever reside in my heart. I love you, Chizi.”

The heartfelt tribute sparked sympathetic reactions from netizens in the comments section.
