While speaking with Punch, Chigbo said that although his brother’s life was cut short unexpectedly, his burial went according to plans.

He said, “My brother was buried on Friday and it is so sad that we have lost someone with a big heart.

“However, Davido was not present at the burial neither did he send a representative but at this point, we have no comment on that.

“I would miss my brother a lot because he had a big heart. He was not only my brother but a lot of people’s brother as well.

“Through my late brother, I have made a lot of friends turned brother and despite his death, I hope to still keep these wonderful people as my brothers.”
