A huge crowd of Ajegunle residents came out in tears on Thursday to escort the body of late singer, Mad Melon to the mortuary following his death on Wednesday night.
Mad Melon, whose real name is Omeofa Oghene, was popular in the early 2000s as one half of the music group, Danfo Driver.
The talented singer, who came out of Ajegunle, had music lovers doing a unique dance called the “Suo”. Both his song “Danfo Driver” and the Suo dance were a big deal back then.

The crowd was unprecedented, with some of the people shedding tears as they mourned the singer. A man on a bike can be seen bending his head as he wept. Young men wept unabashedly.
