Veteran musician, Emmanuel Ntia is dead
Veteran Nigerian highlife musician, Emmanuel Ntia, has passed on at 94.
Ntai bagged COSON Roll of Honour at the society’s 5th Anniversary in Lagos in 2015 for his outstanding contributions to the defence of the rights of creative people in Nigeria.
“Emmanuel Ntia was a truly great and ageless Nigerian performer who stood for what he believed in till the end.
“Despite our significant age difference, he treated me like his brother and was one of my great supporters both in my roles as President of PMAN and Chairman of COSON.
“There was nothing anyone could have given Ntia that would have made him abandon COSON.
“He was 100% committed to the COSON cause and will be remembered forever,” he said.
