Five iconic singers that died in 2016

Music they say is food for the soul – it’s effect sometimes eliciting strong emotions in humans, among them love,  joy, hate, regret or anger.

As music has become an essential part of living, we do not only enjoy the soothing sounds that is pleasing to our ears but also idolize the person (or people) behind the music.

Rock bands in Europe and America have a cult like following, selling out concerts to star struck die-hard fans and in Nigeria, the likes of Don Jazzy and Yemi Alade have used the fame found from music to position themselves as influencers to win corporate endorsements.

What am I driving at? There’s a strong attachment between a musician and his audience and the loss of one musician is often seen as a  great loss to the people who listen to his or her music (remember Michael  Jackson and Whitney Houston’s death?).

As the year 2016 comes to an end, we look at Five iconic singers that died in 2016.
