He expressed sadness that the country in recent times had lost icons like Sam Loco Efe, Ashley Nwosu and Ernest Okonkwo.
“I will miss him; unfortunately most of the foremost broadcasters in the country have died and that is very sad. A lot of people in the movie industry are gone while some are ill,” he said.
