The news of the death of Apple ex-CEO stunned the world.
Innovator, visionary, and tough leader Steve Jobs passed away October 5, 2011 with cause still not revealed.
Fellow Apple workers were shocked but fans were kind of expecting after Steve himself announced his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and liver transplant.
The cancer was miraculously cured though but report has it that his liver transplant, which Jobs kept secret to his co-board members at Apple, made him weaker.
The music industry who are grateful to him for innovations such as the iPod and iTunes are remembering him through social media and possibly a musical tribute.
Nicki Minaj tweeted: “An innovator. Contributed so much to this generation & beyond. RIP Steve Jobs,” the Young Money MC wrote shortly after the announcement.
Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas encouraged fans: “i hope the youth chooses to be like steve jobs…we need more innovators.”
While Ryan Seacrest host of American Idol and 102.7 KIIS FM posted this: ‘Have the courage to follow ur heart & intuition. They already know what u truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.’ – Steve Jobs.”
Radio stations across the globe are paying tribute to the late CEO with promos and spots that highlight his career and contributions.
