Posted on October 4, 2021

The State Government of Osun has commiserated with the family of Late Otunba Olatunbosun Abe, and with media professionals in the State, especially management and Staff of Gold FM.

Otunba Olatunbosun Abe, a popular radio and television presenter in Osun, and the anchor of “Hinpele o” on radio, died on Sunday morning after a brief illness.

In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs. Funke Egbemode, Osun government described Abe as a great and brilliant broadcaster whose demeanor on air was such a great delight to the good people of the State.

The statement read in part: “The Government of the State of Osun wishes to commiserate with the management and staff of Gold F.M., and indeed the entire body of media professionals in the State over the passage of Otunba Olatunbosun Abe (Hinpele O), one of the very popular radio presenters in the State and a strong voice for the Ijesha people in the media”.

“With over 30 years of exciting contributions to the media profession, Otunba Abe was a great and brilliant broadcaster whose demeanor on air was such a delight to the good people of Osun. The huge impression he made through his “Hinpele o” programme on air was one that wouldn’t be forgotten in a hurry.”

“Testimonies and tributes already reeling out on social media by “Hinpele o” lovers give credence to such great impact that Otunba Abe was.”

“Before closing his eyes in death at the Osun State University Teaching Hospital Osogbo (formerly LAUTECH Teaching Hospital) at the age of 69, Otunba Abe freelanced in mostly all the radio and television stations in Osun. He was one of the respected elders of the Osun State Chapter of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters’ Association of Nigeria (FIBAN).”

“The Government of the State of Osun is pained by the loss of not just one of its sons but also one of its finest professionals in the media industry.”

“The government expresses its condolences to the family of the deceased, to the entirety of the media family in Osun state and in Nigeria as a whole, and to the management and staff of Gold F.M. and prays that God grants Otunba Abe’s family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss”, the statement read.
