Ford's fans are mourning his loss, expressing their sorrow in tributes posted to social media.

He is described by many as a "charismatic voice", "bright start", and simply a "positive vibe in the morning".

Ford's body was discovered after his colleagues alerted the authorities that they were unable to contact him when he failed to show up for the show on Tuesday morning.

Our deepest condolences go to the family of the victim, his colleagues at Radio One, and his loved ones. May his soul rest in peace and may justice be served.
