A month ago Willis announced that he would be taking some time off from his duties. He noted that he needed time to comfort his wife, Marya Prude after they lost their daughter during delivery.

“I am therefore going to be taking a short break from work and my duties at Hot 96, Citizen TV and 10 Over 10 to allow for my wife and me to get through the motions,” he posted then.

“My heart is completely broken, she is such a beautiful baby, now she is a beautiful angel. I want to thank you all for the support during this time for the comfort and the love, for getting Marya fit and ready, she did well in labor. We are trying to be strong but we are devastated,” he added.
