An Iroko Has Fallen - RIP Robert Onyia

Just yesterday evening towards the close of work the bad news came calling that my colleague and Art Director, Robert Onyia had passed on.

It was a shock because one of us still spoke to him the day before earlier in the week. The more saddening aspect of it all was that he was supposed to do his introduction this coming weekend.

Robert at this years Agency Fun Fair
I'll definitely miss Robert. I'll remember him for his deep emphatic voice that makes him sound like a Diokpa that Nollywood could make good use of; I'll remember him doing voice-over recordings for me when I needed to use the voice of somebody that sounded like a chief or elderly person. I'll remember him for his informativeness and artistic virtuoso on the computer...

You may be gone Robert...but you will never be forgotten! 
Rest in peace bro!
