Shock among Nigerian docs as Dr Gbee passes on.

In the early hours of May 1st, 2017, nigerian doctors and non-docs, home and abroad woke up to the shock of the sad news of Dr Gbenga Kuponiyi's death.

Dr. Gbenga Kuponiyi (popularly known as Dr. Gb) was a Consultant physician, Community medicine and Primary Health Care at the Obafemi Awolowo College of Health Science, OOU. He was also a teacher, Actor, Playwright, Director, Producer and Worship Leader.

He was the founding Director of SNAPSHOTS; the Drama and Creative Unit of Covenant Christian Center. He wrote over 25 Plays for Stage and Screen and many of them were also directed by him.

He was the director of Metamoforces, a media outfit dedicated to wholesome family stage and film production using appropriate technology. The company uses stage plays, playlets, radio drama, documentaries, films and media based exhibitions to provide value based, rich and well researched content material for family entertainment and education.

Doctor KP has been a source of inspiration to many nigerians as he always played the role of a Guardian and Counsellor to everyone that passed his way, most especially current and past students of Olabisi Onabanjo University.

He led and trained many students to deliver health talks at different secondary schools in Ogun State which almost every family in the state has benefited from, especially Sagamu local Government.

According to a source, Dr Gb died from sudden cardiac arrest, against the background of hypertensive heart disease, at very late hours of April 30.

He will surely be missed by everybody, old and young.

Friends, Colleagues, well wishers have stormed the social media tendering their condolence to this lost hero.
