Morning Fortune on his Instagram page, Prince Ajudua wrote:
”I’ve been asking God why. But the real question is why do we continue to take each day for granted knowing we can be called at any time. Fortune, our brother, our friend. Our very own personal ninja Photgrapher, I can’t believe you’re gone.
“One so young, so hard working, so God fearing, so daring … gone so soon. You would literally endanger your life to get the perfect shot.
“I am literally replaying multiple scenes of us yelling at you ‘Fortune noo!! You can’t climb there!!’ “Fortune are you crazy?! Get down from there!!” on almost every single outing we had.
“Your dedication and bravery was second to none, and this was shown right to the very end. Of memories, you have left us thousands. Many in the form of picture links we are yet to even open. Gone but God KNOWS you will never be forgotten.
“Thank you for all you did in your time with us. You truly served and inspired like no other. And thank you for all the amazing memories you helped me capture personally. You truly shot it ALL.
“It really hurts, but I know you are looking down at us from a better place right now. RIP @fortunateumunname . Love you always brother. Till we meet again. #FortuneShotItAll”
