The only MC with a PhD, Dr Ayo Alao is dead

Dr Ayotunde Alao, a lecturer at the Kwara State University whose nick name is ‘the only MC with PhD’ is dead.

The popular and ever vibrant entertainer died in an auto crash en route Lagos from Ilorin on Saturday.

Apart from being a Celebrity lecturer, Dr Ayotunde Alao was the first male MC with a PhD in Nigeria.

Mourning him, the Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq described his death as a tragic loss to humanity, calling him a great citizen, a fine teacher, and a humanist who lived a purposeful life.

The Governor in his condolence message to the family through his Chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaiye said thus:

“I received the news of the death of Dr. Ayotunde Alao, ‘the only MC with PhD’, in an auto crash en route Lagos with shock and disbelief. He was a young man filled with love and rare passion for the development of his country, state, and humanity.

He was a man with a huge dose of soft power, especially among young people and his students at KWASU. His influence on the people around him grew from his patience, brilliance, humaneness, generosity, and live-and-let-live approach to life.

His death becomes more tragic considering that we had only recently lost his father and erudite scholar, Prof. Samuel Ekundayo Alao. Dr. Ayotunde was no less an erudite scholar of mass communication with huge social currency among students and youths in the state,” the Governor said in a condolence statement on Sunday.

“I send my heartfelt condolences to his family, especially his mother, wife and children, the entire KWASU community, and the creative (showbiz) industry where Dr. Alao had created a niche for himself with his energetic talents as an inimitable compère. May God repose his soul, comfort the family he left behind, and protect our youths from sudden death.”
