Nigerian music and comedy lovers will not be quick to forget Olumuyiwa Osinuga, better known as Nomoreloss.

News of the Iyawo Asiko crooner’s death broke out on Monday afternoon and it has brought to remembrance, the role he played in raising funds for Babatunde Okungbowa, popularly known as OJB Jezreel, when he suffered renal failure.

HE WAS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS

He was born in Lagos in the 70s and attended A.D.R.A.O. International school in Victoria Island for his primary and secondary education.

After discovering his love for music, he studied the rudiments of music with renowned saxophonist, Kunle Ajayi being his tutor.

At some point in his career, he was a comedian, band leader, compere, event planner, talent manager and director.

SONG WRITING WHIZ

One major part of the Lagos-born musician was his song writing skills. He had the ability to build a bridge that cuts across generations; this is evident in his Iyawo Asiko, a variant of Orlando Owoh’s Iyawo Olele.

This Year, one of the tracks that got people talking about Oluwajuwonlo Edahi, popularly known as Jaywon, was written by Nomoreloss.

His hit song Ololufe was another testimony to his excellent song writing skills.

HE WAS OJB’S SAVIOUR

In 2013, when OJB Jezreel suffered renal failure which led to the loss of both kidneys; Nomoreloss championed the cause of raising funds for his fellow singer.

He stepped on toes as the chairman of the #SaveOJB committee and ensured that the funds needed for the kidney transplant was raised.

HE DIED OF TYPHOID

The singer was hospitalised two weeks ago after he was diagnosed with typhoid.

According to thenet.ng, he was discharged from the hospital and was recuperating when he suffered a relapse, which led to his death.
