With 28 years of life on this planet, Takeoff made a significant impact on the world with his musical contributions. Fans touched by his influence penned emotional messages following his untimely death on social media. In addition, celebrities like Desiigner, Alicia Keys, Chloe Bailey, Ja Rule, and many more shared their sadness and spoke about Takeoff as a person.For instance, Drake shared a photo of himself on stage with Takeoff while on a tour stop of their co-headling “Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour” in 2018. In his caption, he stated that he chooses to “focus on” the “best memories” they shared in their world travels. DJ Khaled also highlighted how much of an “incredible man and a beautiful person all around.”
But amid the tributes from prominent figures, two were noticeably missing, and that was from his Migos group members, to whom he was also related. They were all raised by Quavo’s mother, with Quavo being Takeoff’s uncle. Additionally, Offset is a cousin of Quavo.Quavo has been noticeably silent on social media about his nephew’s death. He was present at the time of the fatal and traumatic incident. Offset has also not said anything publicly on social media. However, he did change his profile picture to a photo of Takeoff in his honor.
Now, on the day of his public celebration of life, his sister is speaking out. She’s stated that this is her first time seeing her older brother in years under this unfortunate circumstance. “Never in a million years did I think our meeting up was going to go like this or be for a reason anywhere near this,” she wrote.
Takeoff’s sister like many of his family members have remained mostly private while dealing with this sad loss. While the reason for their distance wasn’t shared, she was sure to discuss how much she loved her brother. RIP to Takeoff. Keep his family and friends in prayer.
