It is understood that he had extensively discussed the deceased’s health with him.

“His passing away is a loss to our party, the All Progressives Congress, a party he vigorously marketed using his unparalleled talent as a singer, and a loss to the Hausa society and our cultural world at large,” Buhari said.

According to the president, the deceased will be remembered as a poetic legend.
