RIP Ogbonna Amadi. Vanguard Entertainment Editor Dies

Heard about his death last night but refused to write it because I was hoping someone would tell me it was all a joke. Whenever I heard a story, he was one of the first people I'd call to get confirmation. He knew everything and everyone...speaking figuratively.

Ogbonna Amadi was the Group Entertainment editor of Vanguard Newspaper. He was the one who broke the D'banj/Don Jazzy break up story. He had been a veteran entertainment journalist for over two decades. He died yesterday evening, August 29th, at a hospital in Apapa after suffering serious Asthma Attack.

Such a huge loss to the media and entertainment industry. Rest in peace, Amadi. #still in shock!

So sad. Linda, how old was he because I have seen his by-line (name) for years?

There is something that I don't understand about Nigeria and Nigerians. In most European countries, asthma suffers have free inhalers that they carry around in case they get attacks. I did not see that in Africa.

Can't the Federal Ministry of Health in Nigeria provide free inhalers with all the oil revenue? People pay too much taxes and get less services from the government.
