"The music industry lost it since his death. He had introduced a unique pace and powerful competition. The music is no longer powerful because he wrote for very many people.

 "He kept all these artists like Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine on their toes looking out for what new thing he had brought. The competition is dead and everyone is now on their own," he opined.
