Tears @ Night of Tribute As Mozzyx Goes Home (photos)

It was indeed a night of tribute fit for not just a star but a loving star. It was a night of tribute for Moses Ochei Ikomi popularly known as Mozzyx of the defunct music duo, Fellyx and Mozzyx.

Held yesterday July 5 at the Nightshift Coliseum which was shut down for years but opened for Mozzyx who was loved across board, the occasion brought several musicians together after a very long time. It was like a homecoming for them as they sang out their souls in loving memory of their dear colleague who succumbed to the power of death after battling chronic kidney failure for years.

Under the supervision of Chief Tony Okoroji, the artistes who were co-ordinated by ace broadcaster Mr. Kingsley Uranta of Channels television gave good account of themselves reminiscent of the good old days when they held sway in the music industry.

From Mozzyx partner, Fellyz; Sunny Neji, Righteousman, Edmund Spice who flew in from the UK, Eddy Okri from the U.S., Romeo Ortega, King Wadada, Lt. Shotgun, Felix Duke, Essence, Cecil Omohinmi, Elvis Tutu to Angel Zig-zag Evis Tutu and of course, veteran reggae icon, Majek Fashek who brought down the roof, they all paid glowing tribute to the ever-smiling born-again Mozzyz with their songs and performances.

Clad in all white attire and fighting back tears, Felix who did a couple of songs thanked all who came to comfort them.  He said: “Most people do not know that we are not blood brothers but that is how we have been living. Moses was too talented, he came earlier than he would have come. He couldn’t harness his potential to the fullest. In 1992, during the PMAN award, he didn’t get the ‘Vocalist of the Year award,’ he felt bad. I believe he was the best. I am happy that Moses has been able to bring so many stars to come together in his honour. The people gathered here is a testimony that music and love are interwoven. Family is family. I thank everyone for your support.”

Okoroji made a passionate appeal to the conscience of the gathering not forget to assist the family Mozzyx left behind which consists of Jessica, his wife and his two daughters, Angel and Emmanuella.

Majek encouraged everyone to live in love. He said: “Nobody lives forever. Let us share love among ourselves that is the only way to heaven. I don’t believe in death, I belive in Jesus Christ.”

Also present were the likes of veteran musician, Chris Mba, Ken Caleb Olumese, Maureen Ejezie, Kenny St. Best, Feladey, among many others.

Earlier, there was a solem service by Household of David Church where Pastor Shola Oshomakinde admonished Christians not to lose hope as those who die in Christ will re-unite with their loved ones and would live forever with Christ in His kingdom.

The remains of Mozzyx has been laid to mother earth today at Ayobo cemetery. May his gentle soul rest in peace!
