Late Taiwo Oshadipe of the gospel duo, Oshadipe Twins, passed away on October 3 and was finally buried on October 15. Criticism has arisen among fans and others against the Nigerian entertainment industry for not attending the candle light procession which took place on 14 October and the burial which took place the following day, 15 October.

The candle light procession took place at the Lagos State Television Hall.

The funeral lasted for an hour with just the family members of the late singer. The procession was extremely emotional with Kehinde calling her twin sister's name, "Taiwo, Taiwo. Why did you leave me?"

Taiwo's white and gold casket was designed in the form of a Bible which represented the gospel music part of her life which she lived for with her sister, Kehinde.

Encomium reports that the burial took place at Victoria Court Vaults, Lekki Expressway, Lagos amidst crying and sadness, and that the normal dust-to-dust rite was skipped.

Taiwo's twin sister, Kehinde, who was clad in an all-white attire, begged the officiating minister to allow her have a last word with her sister before the casket was lowered. The officiating minister, Mr. Adenekan, from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Abule Egba, allowed her to have five minutes of privacy.

The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) released the autopsy and the cause of Taiwo's death was said to be cardiopulmonary failure, otherwise known as heart failure. This health condition is a sudden stop in effective blood circulation due to failure of the heart to contract effectively or at all.

The deceased was said to have been complaining of chest and heart pains before her sad death.
