Former chairman of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Tony Okoroji, disclosed this in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

“I just received with shock the news of the passing on of the great Ozigizaga exponent, Chris Hanen. Chris was a very talented and committed musician who worked with me closely on several projects in our days at EMI,” Okoroji wrote.
