I was resting at home today when I received a text message from my former colleague at IKIM informing me that a former deejay of Radio IKIM, Ahmad Alwani a.k.a. Riqbal, has passed away today.
Riqbal was one of the first four deejays of Radio IKIM when the radio went on air many years ago. While I wasn't too close to him, I did know him nonetheless. In fact, he left the radio to join RTM when I was acting director for the Radio.
My condolences to his family who will surely mourn his untimely passing. And I pray that his soul will be blessed.
