TEARS AS MC LOPH FINALLY LAID TO REST IN THE LORD
Sunday 23rd October, 2011, at the Ojez Restaurant, National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, was a mysterious day that can never be easily taken away from the minds of people as the record label that signed him last, Morgan Entertainment, came to say GOODBYE the Lord Of Pure Hip Hop at his tribute night. If you must know, Obiajuru Nwozo otherwise known as MC LOPH lost his life at age 38 in a fatal accident on Wednesday 14th September, 2011, along side a sister while his fiancé was terribly injured, when his car rammed into a bump on the bad Benin-Ore road, three days to his traditional wedding. If death requested for money or any other thing, we are sure the Nigerian entertainment industry would have paid to redeem the life of this dashing and promising singer, his death was really painful, but there was nothing one could do than to just accept it the way it surfaced. At the tribute night, lots of his colleagues were gathered to give him the last respect with tears and mourning as they were really showed unfamiliar demonstrations. The tribute night had in attendance the likes of Flavour, Nigga Raw, Faze, Black Face and the rest with tears on their faces, especially when Flavour and Niger Raw dished out MC Loph’s song “Osondi Owendi Remix”, Flavour sang while Raw represented Loph to sing his own side of the song. Subsequently, they prayed that lord should spare the life of Loph’s Fiancé and her five months pregnancy which they envisaged to be a bouncing baby boy so as to wear his father’s shoes. On Wednesday October 26th, was another Tribute Concert at Emmaus House, Awka, Anambra State, while Thursday 27th Oct was the Christian Wake at his village, Uguaro, Umunze, Anambra State, before he was finally buried on Friday 28 2011 at Late Mr. Kenneth Nwaozor’s Compound, Ugwuaro Village, Umunze, Anambra State.
