Friends and colleagues have taken to social media to mourn the deceased.
An on-air personality, identified as Raezy Winston, in his tribute claimed that the deceased was not properly attended at the isolation centre.
“Lord!! 3 weeks ago I learnt privately that Dj Babus was hit with Covid and was in a terrible state. From not being properly attended to, to panting and struggling to breathe even while on oxygen (even if he was paying ridiculous!). It hurts to know he ain’t make it. RIP Babus,” he wrote.
