The death of Bob Miga has been announced in London of music genius Bob Miga. He died on April 2 after a brief illness, aged 65 years – having been born in 1949.

Bob Miga was instrumental to the Rock Music Explosion in the Eastern Part of Nigeria at the end of the Nigeria-Biafra War of 1967-1070. The groups he worked with were the Hykkers, Strangers, One World, Black Children and part of The Wings. These groups no doubt provided soothing effects on the harsh conditions of the end of the war arid kept people happy, particularly the youths who are currently on the lists of senior citizens worldwide.

A show is being packaged in his honour tagged Bob Miga’s Flag Stop in Owerri. It is slated for May 16, 2014. This tribute concert will bring together veteran musicians, Radio/TV personalities and contemporary musicians in Owerri and beyond to honour this awesome music icon who could not conclude his vision for the music industry before the fangs of death caught up with him.

As a way to support this event, the organisers have called for support to give Bob Miga a heroic funeral. Tributes are to be sent by e-mail to while financial contributions are to be paid into Ecobank Account Number 5432036660.
