Uwaifo, 80, died on August 28, 2021. He was an instrumentalist, arts teacher and culture ambassador.

Iyoha said the government is firming up arrangements with the family of the deceased.

“The Governor has approved a state burial for an illustrious and dearly beloved Edo music icon, Prof. Sir Victor Uwaifo.
