He was discribed by many as a frank man who will always tell you his mind no matter whose ox is gored.
The deceased  is equally said to be a man of honour and respect for everyone no matter their class or position in life that which  also made a lot of people to love him.

They further expressed happiness  to the creme de la creme  sports  administrators and dignitaries who came from across the country to pay their last respect to the football legend.
