Multiple sources confirming the death of the Nigerian-American said he succumbed to COVID-19 complications.
His death sent shockwaves down the social media.
Frank Edoho of the popular ‘Want to be a Millionaire’ show wrote: “I just got off the phone, my friend Oscar confirmed that Dan Foster has passed on. This is a very very dark year. How can I overcome this unending melancholy. Rest in Peace, dear Friend”.
JJ Omojuwa reacted twice, first of all finding the news unbelievable.
“Let the Dan Foster news be a lie. Let it be a lie”, Omojuwa prayed.
Later, accepting the reality of Foster’s passage, Omojuwa tweeted a tribute:
“Dan Foster’s voice was a huge part of my growing up. His voice on Cool FM. His playfulness. His kindness. Long before I saw what he looked like, his voice communicated his personality in a way no picture needed to. This one is one loss too many. This is a really sad day.”
