This sad event occurred on Wednesday morning, April 11, 2012 in Liberia. “Mrs. Brown’s Fat Little Boy” as he was known on radio, was a veteran and renown broadcaster of his time.

This weekly Saturday night show was one of the most educational and entertaining productions of his time. He and SABI also helped beautify the city of Monrovia with rotating billboards used for advertisements.
