Funmi Iyanda Mourns Sir Victor Uwaifo: “One of the Most Magnetic People l’ve Ever Met”

Funmi Iyanda has taken to her Twitter to pay tributes to the late Sir Victor Uwaifo, who passed recently.

In her post, the TV shot host shared the details of her meeting with the legendary singer in 2009, and how this meeting shaped her idea and now, remembrance of him.

She wrote: “Sad #victoruwaifo has left us. Not so much at his passing, he lived ebulliently, but at the quality of our understanding of him which affects remembrance of luminaries like him and our own value. I met him in his Benin home and studio in 2009 whilst filming TWF around Nigeria.”

She continued, “Professor at University of Benin and one of the most magnetic people l’ve ever met. Told us back story of #guitarboy from an encounter on bar beach as a writer and producer at NTA in the 70s. He had a home museum as well as a life sized sculpted airplane with functional space.”

She said a lot more. See her tweets:
