The death on Monday of popular musician, Olumuyiwa Osinuga, aka Nomoreloss was a cruel blow to his friends, colleagues and fans in Nigeria and beyond.
After the initial shock of learning of the ‘Ololufe’ singer’s death, many took to social media to express their grief.
Ade Bantu, the brain behind the popular monthly Afropolitan Vibes – at which August 2015 edition Nomoreloss had his last major public performance – described the departed as such a loyal and selfless friend.
“One of the few real people in an industry full of fakers. You always came through whenever I needed your advice or help. So full of life, always up to some mischief, always cracking jokes, always going out of your way to make everyone happy and when you grabbed the mic your voice lit up the room. Nomoreloss my brother I refuse to believe that you are gone. This can’t be real,” the man born Adegoke Odukoya said.
“My very good friend, always calling me up to know how I’m faring, which songs to work on and how to improve my game,” Paul Play Dairo began.
“I wish I was there for you as you were for me. I knew you loved the Lord. He will receive you with gladness and say welcome my son, in whom I’m well pleased. Come into my kingdom and reign with me forever. Farewell my true friend,” the ‘Happy Day’ singer wrote on Facebook.
Dare Fasasi, popularly known as Baba Dee, wrote: “Hey soldier, words fails me today because two days ago I cast you as a character in my new film. You were one of my selfless men in this selfish industry. You did your best and you made your mark. We shall all go someday but Muyiwa this is to me a great shock. Rest in peace my padi. Mourn you till we join you. RIP.”
Veteran multimedia maestro, Remi Ogunpitan, also had nice words to say about Nomorelss.
“In an industry full of fake, pretentious and loud imposters, you where REAL. I remember my first contact with you 2001 when I wanted you to appear in a recording of Yello TV I was producing for MTN. You where humble, sincere and a joy to work with. You never changed. Always respectful. Never a bad word. Simply you where an Aburo I liked so much. This is really painful news. My heart bleeds. Rest in peace Muyiwa. May your friends, fans and family be heartened that you have left this world for a better place,” Ogunpitan wrote.
Ruggedman, who featured Nomoreloss on the hook of his popular diss song, ‘Ehen Pt 1’, is not impressed by those pouring fake encomium.
He wrote: “Those who never called to ask how you are doing will appear. God knows and sees all. Those who demanded for money before playing your music or showing your videos will now play it because after your death, it is now good material for their shows. God sees all.
“Great talented, funny and creative you. So I will not call you “Amonalis” to ur hearing and I will never hear you call me “reptile” in this life time. I appreciate every contribution you made to my career.
“God bless you bro, till we meet again…..who knows, we might finally get to do Ehen part 2. God rest your soul.”
Did we celebrate you enough while you were with us.. Did we reach out.. Those of us who knew you?? God help us in this Industry so that RiP isn’t the most selfless thing we say to people who deserve more. He made good music.. Maybe there were no half naked girls or dollar bills.. rest in peace sir. We met just once and you were very warm. God keep your family
Hmmm let’s keep praying for his family most especially his wife and daughter. May the Lord be with us all. RIP @mrnomoreloss

Today…..that life is gone, but one thing that will never go or die is the memory of you, your legacy and what you represented. I learnt a lot from you bro, things that shaped me. May your soul rest in perfect peace. I know you’re in a better place. I love you bro. @mrnomoreloss
