National Mirror interviewed the legendary trado-modern music maker and instrumentalist Fatai Rolling Dollar on Thursday, June 6 while he was hospitalised in Lagos.
Award-winning photographer, Bayoor Ewuoso, captured images of the ailing octogenarian musician on his hospital bed.
Rolling Dollar spoke extensively about his health and optimism about overcoming the malaise. Unfortunately, it was not to be as he died in the morning of Wednesday, June 12 at the age of 86.
History will remember him for his great contributions to music and for inspiring a generation of traditional Nigeria music artistes.
May his soul rest in peace.
