approach a Health Insurance provider to offer their members affordable, accessible and quality healthcare with HMOs.”

He said Knowledge saves lives as such sensitisation and awareness need to be increased amongst artiste’s entourage on what to do in an emergency.

Writing on his X page (formerly known as Twitter) @renoomokri, said:

“First MohBad, and now Oladips. The similarities in the manner of their passing are eerily unnerving. Sudden illness. Allegations of self-medication. Rushed to a hospital. And then death. This is one déjà vu too many.
“Perhaps it is time for the Performing Musicians Employers Association of Nigeria to approach a Health Insurance provider to offer their members affordable, accessible and quality healthcare with HMOs. And sensitisation and awareness need to be increased amongst the entourage of these artistes on what to do in an emergency. Knowledge saves lives. Their posse needs to possess information on the right way to apply first aid if they must be around them. Let's think of solutions, not just blame.”
