@MissMwanyigha: You inspired many with your talent and professionalism. Go well Michael Oyier. Sincere condolences to your family and friends who will surely miss you.

@Nyamwanda: This loss is deeply felt by many of us. Michael Oyier and I shared a history that goes back to our days in Plainview Phase 5, where our homes were just a stone’s throw apart, and later at Saint Mary’s School where we both studied. Michael embodied true gentleness and integrity in every sense. He consistently stood as an outstanding individual, always there to support me during my voice-over pursuits. His command of the English language, charisma, wit, and charm will be greatly missed by all of us. My heartfelt condolences go out to his entire family, including his siblings @JeffOyier, Paul, Peter and Olga. Inna Lillahi wa inailayhi rajiun.
