In what could be described as the family's only consolation, his sister's baby survived. Ceejayboos said in another tweet that he would tell his nephew all about his mother and how she prayed for over 5 years for a child.

According to him, God called her to heaven to watch over her newborn son.

"My nephew survived... I will tell you how sweet and lively your mummy was... How she prayed for over 5 years asking God for a child. And just when she was ready to welcome u, hug you and kiss you; God took her to heaven so she can watch over you from there," he tweeted.
