First, I say Muyiwa was a selfless human being. He did not discriminate and he was not a tribalist, very affectionate about issues affecting the entertainment industry. I will say he was known for the funny element he played in Ruggaedman hit single Ehnen, why you still dey rap like mumu.

Myself, him and Sound Sultan are good friends. We are comedians, so for me, Nomoreloss was not just a friend, even more than a brother, he was a companion in an intellectual way. I had a conversation with him last November about how we can continuously help other people.

We’re making necessary arrangement to put up something with Sound Sultan early this year. It was very shocking seeing his RIP everywhere on social media. Nomoreloss was someone who’s happy and always loved to see other people happy. I know he has gone to a better place than the rest of us, this relates us to the reality of life that what will be our legacy when we all depart this world.

He lived an exemplary and God fearing life. So, I will say he’s a selfless person.

RuggedmanNomoreloss was a very funny person, very down to earth. Talent-wise, everybody loved Nomoreloss. He’s such a great musician, comedian and an entertainer. He’s always happy and that’s why I have chosen to be happy since his demise.

I prefer to remember him for the good legacy he has laid down. His work in the industry will forever be remembered. Like I have been saying on my instagram and I’m saying it here, ‘Anything I’m doing today, is what Nomoreloss would do’. If I’m to describe him in one word, I would say he’s wonderful. We will continue to pray for the family, nobody will ever be happy for losing someone. It means the person is gone forever. We are already planning and hoping to do whatever we can to help his family.

Talking about his legacy, he already had his legacy. Nomoreloss remains Nomoreloss and no one else can change that. So, I should be asking the press what they have got in mind to maintain his legacy.

The press should be responsible for celebrating artistes either alive or dead, he added.

Buga 1-Fullscreen capture 4132016 113247 AMNomoreloss did great things in the Nigeria entertainment industry. He would definitely be missed in the industry. As far as I’m concerned, I will describe him as a funny musician. He joked a lot. The question I keep asking myself is why am I here? And the answer is why? It’s so deep and I can’t just explain how I feel being here today. We had so many things in common and he is a very big loss to the industry.

Talking about his legacy, we pray God would strengthen us. He already has his legacy, he really worked hard to maintain the name ‘Nomoreloss’ and I want to pray God should continue to strengthen his family. Once a situation gets out of hand, you just have to laugh over it.

There’s nothing we can do than to keep helping the family with prayers. Describing Nomoreloss in one word, I will say he’s great.

Nomoreloss was my boss, he was there as a brother to me in the industry. The brand, AY.com actually came alive with the help of someone like Nomoreloss. So, I will say he was a ‘legend’. Even now that he is no more, he remains a legend and we will continue to appreciate his good works.

He was a role model to a lot of artistes, including me and I’m happy he’s my boss and he will remain my boss.

He’s such a great guy. The industry will definitely miss his style, lyrics and talent to be precise. He was in the industry for long and I can tell you, he was such a wonderful musician who joked a lot. He’s just a bunch of talent: a comedian, entertainer, even a life band artiste. The industry will miss you, Nomoreloss.
