Had no idea she had taken ill. Was heart breaking to learn she passed away from dementia on the 27th of December 2019.
I worked with her briefly in London. My colleague Christine Regurika took me to her house a couple times whilst we worked at Voice of Africa Radio.
She also reviewed my first album in one of her publications “Live Listings Magazine”. Internet was not very accesible then.
We used modems, in those days, so her business model and services were very apt and highly sought after, in the community unlike todays social media accessibility for vissibility.
She also gave me some great, writing tips. I, at the time, thought, she was rude and too imposing, lol, but she was on the money.
My brother, a sports mag editor, and sister, an English Grad, Major, agreed with her school of thought, much later on in my writing career when they pointed the same mistakes, I made again. Since then, I developed my own uniqe; style, voice and sound.
I can still hear her voice in my head. What a lovely, kind woman. Shall be fondly missed. I do.
I do not agree that she did not recieve mainstream recognition, cuz she did not need it. She succeeded in catering for her community who needed her and her services most.
Thank her, and thank God, for her. Thank you 🥰🙏🏿🤦🏿♂️ for all the thoughfulness & services to the community. RIP. Till we meet again.
