The gospel musician added that the guitarist had to be supported with oxygen until he died.
He said: “Sir Victor Uwaifo died of chest infection which affected his lungs, thereby leading to difficulties in breathing.
“That’s why he was supported with oxygen.”
Rock, who collaborated with Sir Uwaifo over a week ago on a song titled ‘Hallelujah’, hinted the burial arrangement may be carried out next week.
Born March 1, 1941, Uwaifo who hails from Benin City in Edo State is known for his prowess in handling musical instruments such as guitar, flute, and saxophone.
The celebrated musician was also awarded the National Merit Honours of Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) in 1983 for his contributions to the entertainment industry.
