The Creative Industry Group (CIG) has expressed sadness over the demise of veteran musician, Chris Mba of the “Baby Don’t Cry” fame, which occurred on Wednesday during a prolonged illness.
The CIG President, Felix Duke, in a statement on Thursday in Lagos said that Mba would be greatly missed in the industry especially by the group.
“Chris MBA’s death came as a great shock to me, he was a talented man who made us happy over the years and later fell ill.
“He has been battling with diabetes for years and I’m sure it was this diabetes that led to the heart disease.
“He was a member of CIG and in CIG we tried our best. Last year, we were able to raise money within ourselves and we supported his treatment and I was also supporting personally.
“We were friends. He is going to be greatly missed,” he said. (NAN)
