Late Music Icon, Okechukwu Osadebe’s Son, Stephen Osita Killed by Flood in Anambra

This is really sad. Master Okechukwu Osadebe, the son of late Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, has died after he was swept by a surging flood at Atani, Ogbaru local government, Anambra state. The shocking incident reportedly happened yesterday evening.

The corpse of the deceased was recovered by villagers early this morning as seen in the pictures.

The deceased was the son of late Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe often referred to as just Osadebe, who was an Igbo Nigerian highlife musician from Atani. His career spanned over 40 years, and he is one of the best known Igbo highlife musicians.

His best-known hit was the 1984 single “Osondi Owendi” (Igbo: One man’s meat is another man’s poison.), which established him as a leader in the highlife genre and was one of Nigeria’s most popular records ever.

Just recently, a nine-year-old girl identified as Benedict Uzo was killed by the flood disaster in Amiyi, Ogbaru council of Anambra State.
