I grew up listening to his philosophical songs. Just a few days back my husband asked 'what about Dan Maraya Jos? Is he still alive?' We spent some minutes discussing him and his unique brand of music. Dan Maraya Jos, RIP Sir.

Unknown said...

Hmmm,,,, Danmaraya jos, apart from singing, he was just different from other northern celeb, gentle and generous RIP Dan jos

Joan Morris, how about you respect the dead by shutting your mouth up! that you didn't know does not warrant your senseless and insensitive comments. for your information Dan Maraya Jos was not only known in Nigeria, but internationally known. show respect to the dead which should be reflection of life in general.
may Allah grant his soul eternal peaceful rest. ameen.

I wish him RIP. But you lied about his age. He was almost looking 60 in 1985 when I got to know him. Always cross check your facts.

69 or 96? May his soul rest in peace
