Osang Abang, a scriptwriter with M-Net, has died.
The 30-year-old University of Calabar graduate, who passed away on Thursday night, was buried on Monday.
Before his death, Abang was co-writing content for Tinsel, a popular Nigerian soap opera.
On Africa Magic, Osang was the head writer of the series, BattleGround.
Other projects he worked on includes ‘Forbidden’, ‘Hush’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Jemeji’, ‘E.V.E’, and ‘Ajoche’.
Mourning his death, Iretiola Doyle, an actress, wrote: “All you ever see are the actors but in truth, it takes a small village to put up any type of production; for one the size and scale of #AmTinsel it takes 2.
“Osang Abang was one of the names at the top left-hand corner of many scripts, not just for this particular show, but several other major Mnet productions.
“I met him only once or twice but he was one of ours…it takes a sad, sudden incident like this to bring it home.”
Multichoice, a digital satellite television platform and owners of Africa Magic, wrote: “The Dstv family joins the Nigerian creative community to mourn the super talented Osang Abang whose shocking passing away has left us shattered. May his good soul rest in peace”.
