Also, ARISE News is sad to report on the passing of one of our most hard working Producers, Oluwaseun Oluwagbemi, who died on Saturday September 11th.

In the most charming way and with the biggest of all smiles, Seun’s selfless contribution to the cause of our organization was admired by management, staff and crew and his kindness was felt by everyone he came across.
Seun was 24 years old and is survived by his parents and four sisters.
May his sweet gentle soul Rest In Peace.
