His manager, Uzoma Omenka, confirmed this in a video uploaded on the late singer’s Instagram handle.
Omenka, who said he has been getting calls from all over regarding the passing of the maestro, said, “Yes, it is true that the legend has gone to be with the Lord. But this time I want to say we should all celebrate him, his achievements. He has done a lot for Nigeria and for Africa.
