The video of late Senator Buruji Kashamu asking Kessington ‘Baba Ijebu’ for forgiveness on his sickbed has surfaced online.
Kashamu who died on August 8th, 2020 due to COVID-19 complications.
Kayode Ogundamisi who shared the video on his Twitter handle @ogundamisi, stated that “Late Buruji Kashamu had called Adebutu Kensington to seek forgiveness and reconciliation over some business disagreement.”
Kashamu who spoke in Yoruba, pleaded with the businessman to forgive him for any wrongdoing. Adebutu on his part, accepted his forgiveness and also asked Kashamu to withdraw all the lawsuits he filed against him to show he is serious in his bid to seek for forgiveness.

Reacting to the video, some Nigerians have questioned why it was released into the public domain after the death of the senator, while some are of the opinion that the video making its way to the public, proves that the deceased senator was a good man for seeking for forgiveness from someone who he felt he had offended before his death.
“Godfather, I was vexed to my bone marrow after listening to that show of shame. Ashamed not on the part of Buruji because at this point he was desperate to regain his health. But on the part of those, who filmed this telephone conversation and made it available to the public,” a Twitter user said.
“He has done his part and gone. It’s a great privilege he got there to have reconciled with those he had wronged.
“If the video was to tarnish him, then it is left with them. They should pray they have the opportunity he had to restitute before death. Many are not privileged to do that,” another user of the social networking platform said.
“Clearly, somebody else in the room with Baba Adetubu was the one recording this conversation (with or without the old man’s permission). It is that person that has leaked this video clearly because the video is not on Baba Adetubu’s phone which he was holding as far as we can see,” @GbolaGbadabosi wrote.
According to @Waleadebadmus, “Kashamu has done what is honourable to seek forgiveness before he passed on but it is unfortunately that Agbalagba to se lagbalagba too bad.”
@OdunfaofLagos wrote, “You don’t teach people how to fight their battles, do you know how much Buruji Kashamu has denied and dent this man’s image using the media while he was alive?
“Y’all don’t want to speak evil about the dead because you’re scared of ghosts or culture even if he was a total a…ole.”
