New Orleans Bounce DJ and Radio Personality Dies After Coronavirus Diagnosis

New Orleans bounce Dj and radio personality died at the age of 44 after being diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Dj Black N Mild, whose real name is Oliver Stokes Jr., was the first Dj to have radio mix dedicated to Nola Bounce. “I was the first DJ in Nola history to have a radio mix show dedicated to Nola Bounce from 03-05 (up to Katrina),” he wrote in a Facebook post back in February.

Aside from being a Dj, the father of four also worked at the Arthur Ashe Charter School in New Orleans’ Gentilly neighborhood.

According to The Times-Picayune, Stokes left work on March 9th with a fever. He documented his illness on social media with his last pat saying, “pneumonia not the flu” on March 11, according to Billboard.

Black N Mild passed away Thursday, eight days after being diagnosed, and it was confirmed on Friday.
