Famous Nigerian Musician, MC Loph Is Dead

Nigeria’s entertainment industry has again been hit by yet another death. Obiajulu Nwaozor, who is better known as MC Loph met his untimely death earlier today while driving on the notorious Benin-Ore expressway. Street Journal gathered that he was traveling to Anambra State in the Eastern part of the country for his traditional wedding when the accident that claimed his life occurred.
His wife to be too was said to have been in the vehicle with him.
MC Loph, the only son in a family of four became an instant celebrity when he did a remix of Osita Osadebey’s Osondi Owendi, an award winning song that enjoys airplay till date. Though his songs tilted towards Highlife, he classified them as Afro-Hip Hop as they contained elements of Rap. He graduated from the University of Nigeria Nsukka with a degree in Sociology and Anthropology.

      you are a complete idiot, just look at your statement? “if she is alive she must be a witch” instead of praying and hoping she survived you wanted her dead too. Edet..all you know in your tribe is accusing innocent people including children of witchcraft, even at your age. illiterate.

        He’s not educated at all. How do we know that he’s really an engineer. People just put letters b4 and after their names to lift themselves up and to cover up their ignorance and stupidity. He most probably bought the degree…if at all he went to school.

      You’re an illiterate and very, very, very small minded. Your mindset is backwards and you’re completely ignorant and you have the stupid guts to show your face. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. A man dies and the only thing you can think of is to blame the woman in his life…..If your father dies, so your mother is to blame??? You’re a worthless piece of pig shit and I don’t think you don’t have a soul!

      This is another idiot! what is a witch–hahah .blame your useless leaders for failing to repair roads in their country. Nigeria LEADERS should all be tied to the pole and FLOGGED.

    Its quite unfortunate, MC Loph and his fiancee died in the accident. But people like Engr. Unyime Edet should mind the kind of comments they post. I wonder how you got your certificate. We should probe your lecturers.
    A wake up call should also go to the Federal Government to help do something on the Benin-Ore expressway. So many people that could have contributed positively to the growth of Nigeria have been lost through that road.

    The Whiteman should come and take over Nigeria and colonize us for a second time then when we get to a certain level they can leave. The Benin/Ore road is the most important road in this nation, just look at how that road is. If you haven’t visited South Africa ask those who have been there. From Joburg to Cape town is 19hours by road and you won’t see any pot hole for the 19hours journey.

    May the soul of the dead rest in perfect peace. How sad to have people thinking like Mr Unyime Edet in this day and age. I’m not surprised though, the title he has bestowed upon himself (Engr) tells what kind of unenlightened human being he is. Reminds me of my mechanic back then who insisted on being referred to as an engineer. Mr Edet, my sincere advice to you is to chuck your primitive way of thinking in the bin. It’s outdated and noone really cares about what low-lives like you think. Most accidents in Nigeria occur as a result of the terrible state of our highways. Even the least educated being resident in the country knows that. I believe Mr Engineer should even know better. Get a life Mr Edet or whatever you call your sad self.

    What EDET said was maybe right any how because looking into the car of our young Brother MC Loph, no man or woman with empty hand will make it. Anyway, no man can judge, what happened might have been assigned by God. No one ever gone since there is some people to remember them. MC LOPH, rest in peace and your legacy will continue to ring in the memory of Nigerians.

    • DJ INSIGNIA

      What do you mean by”no man or woman with empty hand will make it.” So was she carrying a keg of palm wine in her hands to have survived? or should mc loph too should have been carrying a log of wood in his hands as well? You are no different from “Engr” Edet. Idiotic illiterates! You need to fish out the witch or witches that have refused to give you constant electricity then. I am sure your blackouts are caused by witches as well. Mumu people.
