He breathed his last on Sunday, November 17, after a brief illness.
The late U Turn was from Kabba-Bunu in Kogi State, where he first tried his hands on entertainment, working as a radio and TV presenter.
He had a brief stint at NTA, Lagos, after relocating here, before signing a deal with Ultima Records which released his early albums.
The creator of 'Apoola Berekete' also veered into acting briefly. He got his first break when he was signed to one of the biggest record labels of the time, Ultima Records.
Ultima got Nelson Brown to work on his first album which was a huge success.
His second album 'Padlock Ur Mouth' produced the smash hit 'Yetunde' a collaboration with Pasuma Wonder.
He died in a hospital around Okokomaiko, where he resides after suffering a liver related illness. A family member disclosed he had been in and out of hospitals for many weeks. He was on admission at the last hospital for almost two weeks before the sad demise.
His mourning family is expected to announce his burial date soon.
