"Chief Adebayo Faleti will certainly continue to live in the hearts of all the descendants of Oduduwa in appreciation of him as a collosal blessing to our race as a great ambassador who gave all his God-given talents for the promotion and sustainability of Yoruba culture and traditions right from the young age of 19years when he first established a Youruba theater group known as Oyo Operatic Society."
