he was a mentor and a friend. A brilliant scholar and veteran broadcaster.he was humble and kind, never acted the big man. Ladi had a word and smile for evryone from the security man at the gate,the canteen staff up to his proffessional buddies. Despite his friendliness, he neva suffered fools gladly but encouraged u to b d best u'll ever b. he always gave everyone a chance cos he believed their is always room for improvement. he gave me my break in broadcasting n i owe part of my success, drive and aspiration to his relentless drive. I LOVE U MY BOSS AND WILL MISS YOU GREATLY!!!
