“We called to tell him about today’s show at Oduduwa GRA but he said he was sick and had not been able to sleep for some days.

“When we called later, we were told that he had been taken to hospital for treatment. Later, he called back and said he was fine, only to hear he has died this afternoon,” the source informed.

As for Joel in coma, the source could not provide information about the nature of the saxophonist’s ailment.

It was gathered that the GRA Ikeja Sunday night show would go on as planned, “because Alhaji (K1) can’t afford to disappoint the organizers who are social influencers and had taken time to plan for the event, though he (K1) won’t be in the right frame of mind because ‘Dipo was one of his most loyal boys.”
