This picture was the last display on his blackberry messenger before he left mother “Earth”. His last BBM Post read “Lord please take charge of this health of mine”.
He was ill for sometime and a lot of his friends who usually tapped into his personality to host a number of shows all deserted him, he felt neglected and dumped. That was exactly how he felt but thank God the entire HOT FM Family stood for him when it mattered most. He didn’t wanna travel back to Kaduna for treatment, he was persuaded by us, his family in Owerri to go
home, relax and come back to do what he loved doing most after being strong. He locked up his room, opened it again as if he didn’t wanna leave, Could it be that he knew he will never return? When he was asked his size and how he would want his name printed on the HOT FM t-shirt for the “Hot and Buckwild Party” to celebrate HOT FM’s 2nd anniversary, he replied – “I don’t think I may wear that t-shirt eventually!!!”
He died in the late hours of December 22, 2012 after a family prayer in his home town He breathed the last after he said – Amen!!! His lifeless body was so relaxed and looked happy like a man that really completed his mission on earth! We will miss you bro! But your legacy lives on! Every body wants to know the illness that killed him right? My answer is – Does it really matter? What kills a man is death, no matter the form it comes.
Let’s not grief so much cos YUBA-YUBA always wanted smiles on our faces and joy in our souls. Raymond Ayuba my friend was a GREAT MAN…he left a good mark before he left us on earth…Do the same this season. Happy Christmas in Advance peeps, I pray everyone that travels returns safe and in 2013, we can only get hotter and better on Hot 99.5fm, One love peeps. Let’s stay in touch….very importantly – Stand by your family and friends in time of need, it can make them live longer!!!
