Legendary musician, Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya, 86, has retired from active performance due to his health and doctors’s instruction to desist from performance.
This was made public last weekend when he missed from the usual ‘nightlife faithful gathering’ held every Saturday at the Stadium Hotel, Iyun Street, Surulere Lagos.
Dr. Victor actually stopped attending his regular weekly shows and occasional performance for over one year when it became obvious that his health is failing steadily. Based on this, his doctor advised him to cease from performing.
His manager, Gbenga Adewusi said : “Aside from attending his gigs, he no longer comes to work regularly as a result of age-related health issues”
