It is a sad and trying time in the Nigerian broadcasting space following the death of young and vibrant broadcaster, Binta Badmus.
According to reports making the rounds online, the young lady had been battling a non-life threatening sickness that had warranted her frequent visit to the hospital.
Corroborating the story of Badmus’ health challenge, colleague and media practitioner David Hundeyin, via a series of post shared on micro blogging platform, Twitter, disclosed that the deceased had developed a back related problem that started when she was working at Smooth FM.
“Worked her way up from studio intern to news reader at Smooth FM all by sheer force of personality and will. Joined Channels, quadrupled her income and basically spent all of it fixing the back problem she developed at Smooth. Took every Monday off to go to LASUTH or Igbobi,” his tweet read.

Hundeyin disclosed further that until her death, they had both been working together on her personal statement for an international application.
May God grant her family the strength to bear the fortitude of the loss.
