FG Reacts To Orlando Julius’s Death

The Federal Government has commiserated with the family, friends and fans of the late highlife musician, Julius Aremu Olusanya Ekemode, popularly known as Orlando Julius, who died in the early hours of April, 15, 2022 at 79.

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday, described the late Orlando Julius as an all-rounder in his field, noting that he made his mark as a singer, songwriter, saxophonist, and performer.

He added that the late musician’s death robs the music industry of another trailblazing legend and the nation of another giant star, urging the music legend’s family to take solace in the good and remarkable life their patriarch lived.

He said: “Despite a larger than life image, he remained a decent gentleman and a good family man. His passion for music was unparalleled, hence he excelled in his chosen field.

By dint of hard work, he and others like him laid the foundation and helped to nurture Afrobeat to global prominence,” he said, adding: ‘It was, therefore, most fitting that he lived long enough to witness the moment in which Nigerian music has taken the world by storm.”
