Those of age in the 80’s when television programmes were the rave of the moment will definitely know Hotel De Jordan, a weekly TV drama that satirized the vices of the society. The programme paraded the best of stars at the time. The likes of Chief Ajas, Kokori, Idemudia, Dr. Miromiro, Brefa, among others. The creator of the exciting programme, Jonathan Ihonde, takes a bow today!

His demise rented the air like his programme did many decades ago, as captured in this forwarded message on the social media space:

May his gentle soul rest in peace…Amen!
