So pathetic how we lost Father U-Turn to Kidney related illness. He was reported dead on Sunday, 17th of November, 2013 after spending 10 days in a local hospital.

This guy rose from poverty as an orphan, built a successful career as a songwriter, recording artiste, TV presenter and performer. He was only 36 years old, with a wife and five children who would have to feel the pain of fatherlessness for the rest of their lives.

Father U Turn was from Kabba-Bunu in Kogi State. That was where he started as a radio and TV presenter.

Later he got a deal with Ultima Records where Nelson Brown produced his first album which was adjudged successful. Two hit songs, ‘African Culture‘ and ‘Shakara‘ threw him into national limelight. In his music career, he had worked with Daddy Showkey, Daddy Fresh and Pasuma who featured in the hit single “Yetunde”.

So painful, and i keep wondering what's going on with people's kidney these days?
