Former VP and 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the death of Nigeria’s legendary musician, Sir Victor Olaiya, IgbereTv reports.
Atiku in his statement described the late singer’s style of music in the ’50 and how he will never forget his hits songs.
He said, “My condolences to the family of Nigeria’s highlife legend, Sir Victor Olaiya, OON. His artful delivery on the trumpet and his hits from the 50s are moments we’d never forget. Most recently, the duet with Innocent Idibia, was a musical bridge to travel. May his soul Rest In Peace.”
Sir Victor Olaiya passed on on Wednesday at the age of 90.
He will surely be missed in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
