The entertainment industry have been rocked with some sad news ever since the year started but the past seven days have been worst.
With the industry already suffering loss in the Nollywood industry, the medias were
shocked as deaths of top personalities were being pronounced on a daily basis.
In the last seven days, seven Nigerian journalists have died from COVID-19 and other illnesses.
On the list are Dan Foster (Cool FM & City FM), Hugo Odiogor (former Editor at the
Vanguard), Xavier Ndayongmong (Crime Editor at Daily Independent), Nkiruka Udoh (Crime and Defence Correspondent at AIT), Naomi Uzor (Business Desk at the Vanguard), Aramide Praise Oikelome (the Media Project and Independent Newspapers), and Azeez Ozi Sanni (Cartoonist at The Nation).
Nigerian Journalists have been facing huge risks and unprecedented challenges as
front-line workers covering the novel Coronavirus outbreak and reporting in the newsroom every day.
Nigerians are still mourning the deaths of the great journalists whp have put their life on
the line just to keep citizens updated and pray they rest in blossom of God.
