Chris Mba, a veteran Nigerian pop singer, who was suffering from heart problems, has died.
Mba died on Wednesday night at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, according to reports.
His wife reported his death on her social media platform.
Signed to Premier Records, Chris Mba was popular in the 80s for his signature jerry curl and hits like ‘Funky Situation’, ‘Baby Don’t Cry’, ‘Making my Way’ and ‘Love Everlasting’.
He also performed at an evening of tributes organised for the late Ras Kimono by the Copyright Society of Nigeria in August 2018.
The Abia State-born artiste, who was a member of the PMAN Caretaker Committee and COSON, solicited for funds some years back over his health challenges, but not much was realized from the appeal.
