Colleagues and fans of Nigerian-British rapper, Ben Chijioke aka TY, have paid tribute to the artiste who died after contracting coronavirus.
The rapper died at the age of 47 on May 7, in the United Kingdom. His death was announced by Diane Laidlaw.
According to Laidlaw, TY was admitted to hospital with complications related to COVID-19, and was put in a medically-induced coma. He woke up and appeared to be getting better but last week contracted pneumonia in hospital and died on May 7.
“The family would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has reached out and expressed their concern since he was admitted to the hospital,” Laidlaw wrote.
“But right now they would value having their privacy, so they can mourn privately.” (Text, photo by Nation)
