Fresh FM presenter, Baba Bintin, is dead


Presenter Baba Bintin of the Ibadan-based private radio station Fresh FM Nigeria passed away on Saturday after collapsing on the way to the station for his broadcast.

On Saturday, the station revealed Baba Bintin’s passing during a radio broadcast.

“I’m finding it very difficult to believe this story that is breaking here,” popular presenter, Mayor Isaac Brown, said on the radio station.

“He (Baba Bintin) left his home like we all did this morning to come into this station to do our daily job and contribute our quota to national development; the job like we love to do, and I’m being told that the man just slumped this morning and he died while getting ready to come here.”

Komolafe Olaiya referred to Baba Bintin as “Boda Olu” and “Uncle” and he typically spoke in the Ijesha dialect. Baba Bintin was a comedic presenter on the Oyin Ado program on Saturdays on the Radio Station where he provided information on the markets.
