We, the family of the late King Sosu-Mobee, wishes to thank you for your expressions of love, support, and kindness during this time.
We offer thanks to the many friends, associates, neighbours, and well-wishers who provided emotional and practical support for us at this difficult time. For those who telephoned, travelled long distances, sent floral tributes, cards and messages of condolences, we are truly grateful.
A special word of thanks to the management, nurses and staff of Guy’s & St Thomas’ hospital and the Borough NHS Kidney treatment centre who cared and looked after King’s health over the years.
We will also like to thank St Matthew’s Church and St Giles Church for their help and support; and finally, In memory of life Funeral Directors, for their sensitivity and professional handling of our arrangements.
To those who helped in anyway, your contribution made our loss more bearable. As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our deepest gratitude.
From King’s Family

The life of King Henry Viwanu Sosu-Mobee cannot be said without talking about his love for excellence. He loved excellently. He cared excellently. He supported excellently. He fought to stay on excellently and gallantly. He enjoyed life excellently. You could say that he was a man with the spirit of excellence.
From childhood, Henry (as he was called) displayed a strong level of leadership, wittiness and uncanny intelligence. He was a quick thinker and dogged in his convictions.
All these traits were seen in Army Children School, Apapa, Lagos, Nigeria, where he had his Primary school education. He went on to the prestigious Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Ojo, Lagos, where he finished off in flying colours and also held the position of the Social/Labour prefect. In this light, he got admitted to the historical University of Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria to study Economics; which he started before health issues kept him away from school. He later left Nigeria and relocated to the United Kingdom. His professional career started after completing his college studies before health challenges forced him to thread different paths, one of which was academia. He excelled in academia, despite having to dialyze 3 times a week; obtaining a BSc in Criminology and Social Policy from the prestigious London School of Economics. He definitely enjoyed the challenge in academia as he took on many research support roles and recently pursued an MSc in International Business at the University of Birkbeck, just before his demise.
Everything he did, he put his heart into. Even from childhood, King fought to stay alive. He did everything on purpose to ensure that health was not going to hinder him from enjoying, participating and doing everything that he needed to do as a boy. What he needed to enjoy as a child, he fought hard for it. One special trait he had was the ability to speak his mind, and if you know King, you know that even when he was really down and out, his mouth was still very vibrant and very active. He would say his mind and wouldn’t care whose ox is gored.
In the UK, he continued in the spirit of “never giving up.” To never back down no matter the situation. He continued in that light, and we see how, despite the huge challenges he faced, despite the pains, despite the setbacks, he forged on, like the warrior that he was, like the King that he was, he still kept leading… Leading while bleeding.
He was an astounding example. Through his fight, he made sure it didn’t hinder his education, family, passion and happiness, despite the pains.
So now that we are faced with the reality of his leaving us, we know that he has ran his race. He has fulfilled his destiny. He has made the strongest impact ever. He has left his stamp in our hearts forever, and now he has gone to rest.
We celebrated him before; we are celebrating him now and we will celebrate him always.
He was a doting son, wonderful father, caring brother, reliable Uncle, supportive cousin and a faithful friend. It can only be King.
We will never forget, we will always celebrate our hero, KING SOSU-MOBEE.
