Popular DJ, Music Producer – Arif Cooper Dies

Arif Cooper, the well-known disc jockey, music producer, and radio personality, has passed away.

According to reports, Cooper collapsed while playing a set at a party in the corporate area in the early hours of Sunday morning.

He was rushed to the hospital but was later pronounced dead.

Cooper’s father, Michael ‘Ibo,’ was the founder of the iconic Reggae group, Third World.
