Recall that Olayinka, 48, was reportedly buried the next day after passing away on Friday, July 31, 2022.

As part of his efforts to join the fight against alcoholism and drug addiction, particularly among young Nigerians and those in the Diaspora, the legendary musician also announced in a statement sent to The PUNCH that he was launching a new ministry called “Freedom from Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Ministry.”

The statement read in part, “The doctors called me six months ago to inform me that Yinka had less than six months to live.

The ‘Board Members’ singer stressed that FADAM will also become an avenue to assist parents and families of alcoholic and drug-addicted children and youths, in turning their lives around and making them better citizens in society.
