Sun re o Kola Olawuyi

My sincere apologies for going awol. Work has tied this sistah up big time.
I was just doing my rounds of daily naija news when i bumped into this
For the yoruba speakers among us who still remember the show called Nkan Mbe back in naija. The host of the show passed on last week. To say i am crushed is an understatement. There was something about Kola Olawuyi that i respected and that was his guts. While i was home last year for Nysc i always tried to catch his show on the radio(eventhough some of the gist were scary it was always an eye opener). One that sticks to mind from back in the day was 'talo yoju ayoka' (translation, who plucked out ayoka's eyes!!!). His show was mainly to showcase the scary things that happened around us, dwelling on the supernatural and all that stuff.He always tried to be as objective as he could possibly be and was always quick to make corrections when and if the need came up.
He left behind aged parents, a wife and children. May his soul rest in peace.

  • May his soul R.I.P. I remember his shows, they used to scare the crap outta me, but my parents always listened to and watch his shows. He delved into areas others dared to go. I so remember the Ayoka story, the pix were so gross when they showed 'em on TV.

    But the good thing, was his show made me view the world from a different angle, that supernatural forces really did exist. I hope there'll be more pple to follow in his footsteps.

    The man must've been a strong believer to be able to air a show like that 'cos i know he'd have been tried so many times. I feel so sad and just pray God comforts his family.

  • Yeah I remember that show...my mums drivers always sat down after the show and had some deep ass conversations...watched the show a few times way way back in the 90's.

    Acutally remember a case of 2 kids randomly turning into tubers of yams,some villager cut a bit off..and lo and behold when the kids were transformed one of them years had been cut of and seriously bleeding...now that put the fear of God in me...

    Anyways may his soul rest in peace o and God give his family the strength to bear this great loss.

  • Wow.....Finally i tie it. I heard he had died but i couldnt place the name or program. My mom watches this show,...it is so scary especially since a lot of the stories were true. I always said this man had to be strong to delve into these issues. What killed him? May his soul rest in peace.

I am however sorry to hear he is deceased....May his soul reat in peace. Think i remember one of his stories about some village woman turning into an antelop....weird, really weird. That was my first and last time watching the show.
