Dr Oloh laid to rest

Sierra Leone’s edifying music idol, Olohufeh Israel Cole, aka Dr Olo, was yesterday buried at the Ascension Town cemetery after a well attended funeral at the Christ Church in Freetown.
Dr Oloh, who created the popular acclaimed Milo Jazz and put Sierra Leone on the world musical map with his ‘Gumbay Music’, died on Saturday 13 October at the age of 63 at the Connaught Hospital in Freetown.
The late man was so famous that he represented Sierra Leone at the United Kingdom and many other places marketing Sierra Leone’s heritage.
He came to the entertainment limelight in the mid 80s when he blended the Goombay music with the already existing local instruments to toss what he termed Milo jazz which wiggled waists during weddings.
