The late veteran broadcaster and Spot FM producer/presenter, Hilton Mambo (pictured) has been described as a humorous and selfless person, who was a source of inspiration for many in both the broadcasting and music industries.
Mambo, who was also a Jazz musician, died early Monday morning at the Avenues Clinic and has been described by family and friends as a unifier and a person dedicated to his work.
Family spokesperson, Florence Mambo said Hilton was dedicated to his family and jazz music and will be hard to replace.
â€œHe was a real father, who was always there to listen and give a helping hand. He was dedicated to his music so much that whenever he was low, he would always resort to listening to jazz. His death has left void I cannot explain,â€ Florence said.
Colleagues who worked with Mambo or Dj Bobo as he was affectionately known by his listeners said he was a person whom they looked up to, for professional and social advice.
Mambo was well known for his radio shows which include, Mambo Jambo world, Beta Beat International and Swing along the avenues of Jazz.
His body will lie in state at house number 74 Twenty Dales Road, Hatfield, Harare and is expected to be buried at Glen Forest Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon.
