Not again! Nigeria has lost another man with the golden heart. Engineer Phillip Tabansi who helped artists in the 80s and early 90s when Tabansi Records which was one of the leading indigenous record companies in the country is now late.
Who is this guy,Phillip? Philiph was instrumental to the rise of artistes like Majeek Fashek, Dizzyy k, Falola, Felix Liberty and others. Now, you can see why he is making the huge news now that he is late.
Stories had it that Phillip upon his return to Nigeria from London in search of the golden-fleece, simply joined the family business alongside his brother, Goddy and they made great strides. Phillip who’s still in his prime has just passed on. He died recently and to bid him farewell, his family members, friends and well-wishers gathered at Tabansis office along Kudirat Abiola road, Ikeja.
Charles Imoloame, (Charlimo), President of Nigeria Music Club, in a statement that heralded the occasion, prayed that his gentle soul will rest in peace.
