Popular High Life Musician, Dr. Victor Olaiya, died today 12th February, 2020 after a brief illness. The great musician and owner of Stadium Hotel, Surulere, died at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) at the age of 89 years (Last birthday was 31st December, 2019).
Dr. Victor Olaiya released many albums during his lifetime and contributed greatly through his music to the entertainment industry. High life music lovers have lost a great man but we hope one of his children, who happens to be an accountant but is also a trumpeter and leads the band before the demise of his father, would fill the void.
Dr. Victor Olaiya, Roy Chicago and Bobby Benson are some of the legends of high life music that are dead. May their souls rest in peace.
