Classic FM on air personality Sylvester Ojigbede known affectionately to his fans as Sly has died. He died last night after a battle with an unknown ailment that affested his spinal cord.
His Co-host, Tintin Imevbore confirmed his death with a short tribute on facebook.
- Born in the 70’s, Grew in the 80’s, Rocked the 90’s and stil rocking; Sly has been a lover of music as early as he could pronounce the word. His appreciation for music is often attributed to his father whose LPs, 8 track cartridges and cassettes kept him “musically satisfied” as a child; and his siblings who kept the desire for music burning in him.
A graduate of Economics from the University of Lagos, Sly’s work experience has seen him work in Advertising & Mortgage & Commercial banking. The love for quality music brought him to Classic FM 97.3 and he has been an integral team member ever since. His preferred genres of music include Hip Hop/Rap Music, R n B, Soul, Funk, Dance, Reggae & Neo-Soul.
Catch him on The Morning Show (6am to 11am) Mondays to Thursdays and the Classic X-Press (6am to noon) on Saturdays.
