The passage of 'Joromi' crooner last week Saturday was indeed a sad loss to his immediate family and the entire nation as a whole.
The Late Sir Victor Uwaifo
Still in deep grief over the loss of his father, the son of the music legend known as 'Peter de Rock' took to his Facebook page to express shock and unbelief over the sad incident.
He wrote a brief passionate piece:"I still can't believe you 've gone, I promise you today you will continue to live inside of me and to generations to come".
Father and son
Late Sir Victor Uwaifo remains one of the greatest musicians and instrumentalist to come out of Africa. He was the first musician in Nigeria to be awarded the National Merit Honours of Member of the Order of the Niger (MON).
He also served as the first Commissioner for Arts Culture and Tourism in Edo State. His strings of achievements in music, sculpture, invention of musical instruments and much more, clearly stood him out as a genius.
May his soul rest in peace!
