Remi Ogunpitan MD The Serengeti Network confirmed the director’s demise on Facebook with an emotional tribute.

“Olalekan Babalola just sent the information that Baba Lloyd Weaver has passed on to return to his ancestors. The news was a sad one. I learnt so much from this creative loving and gentle soul who gave so much to the Nigerian creative Industry.

He arrived in Nigeria as part of the Jakaranda American team to train producers at NTA. Thereafter, himself, Tony Cunningham and Earnest Dunkley formed an independent TV and Film production company CDW who went on to produce some of the most iconic Nigerian TV commercials for some of Nigeria’s top advertising agencies in the 80′ and ’90s.”

“They later formed Swift Studios, where I was the Executive Producer, working with other Nigerians such as Patrick Afun, Pat Nebo, Olumide Ofere and many others. I learnt so much from him and he remained a mentor until his death.

Lloyd loved Nigeria and its people. He emersed himself in our culture and his African roots, and was unashamedly proud of his Africaness and blackness. He was a great educator and shared all his knowledge with everyone he came into contact with.

Lloyd has left behind a great legacy and example for many of us who knew him. He will be missed. Rest in Peace Papi! You were a giant and will ever remain so.”

Weaver’s popular series, “I Need To Know” sponsored by UNFPA and CIDA, centred on educating young people on safe s*x, HIV/AIDS, pregnancy and other health-related issues.

Lloyd Weaver also produced MNET sponsored films “Twins of The Rain Forest” and “A Place Called Home”.
