The lead Anchor and Producer of a life-touching programme, Sibaba Sibaba, and ace broadcaster with Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation (AKBC), Mrs Margaret Eshiet, is dead.
She passed on Saturday at the age of 65 after retirement from service five years ago.
Popularly known as “Mma Sibaba Sibaba”, Margaret Eshiet was famous for her chit-chat vernacular programme in Ibibio which she used to highlight societal ills every Thursday on Radio Akwa Ibom 90.5FM, Uyo.
She was an household name in broadcasting, a comedienne of no mean repute, compere and producer of Sibaba Sibaba, one of the oldest programmes on radio.
Her voice could raise the dead, even as she has trained many On Air Personalities (OAP) she has left behind.

Mma Sibaba Sibaba retired as Presentations Manager in AKBC.
