A very popular On-Air Personality (OAP) in Nigeria, Mr Dan Foster, has died of coronavirus-related illness in Lagos.
The famous radio man was said to have died on Wednesday at a medical facility in the metropolis.
The American radio host was a prominent voice on the Lagos-based Cool FM in the early 2000s before he left the media outfit to another, Inspiration FM, also in the Victoria Island of Lagos.
Some celebrities have taken to Twitter to express shock and grief over the demise of the veteran radio man, who wowed many with his American accent.
“Dan Foster’s voice was a huge part of my growing up. His voice on Cool FM. His playfulness. His kindness. Long before I saw what he looked like, his voice communicated his personality in a way no picture needed to. This one is one loss too many. This is a really sad day,” Omojuwa said.
A former colleague of late Dan Foster, also fondly called The Big Dawg, Dotun, in his post, said, “This man and Olisa Adibua were our templates in the new age broadcasting! … we all used their styles and mannerisms. Damn! What a loss!”
“Dan Foster, you will be greatly missed.
“Your time at City was wonderful and we loved working with you. Our hearts go out to his family at this time, we pray that God comforts them. Rest In Peace, Legend! The broadcast media will never be the same without you,” City FM, where he once worked, said.
