One of the island’s most beloved people Nitaya Coven Chatiyanon passed away earlier this week. Most people knew her by the name of ‘Oi’. No words can describe what it feels like to lose such a cherished soul but some of Phangans’s dearest chose some good ones…
‘From today and for the rest of the year every set I play, every piece of music I make and every happy experience I have is dedicated to you.
A wonderful soul and a true angel. You will always be with us, I'm sure of that.
‘Knowing Oi ... she was living in the music, loving dancing, enjoying parting ... she will be disappointed if we decide to sit down and mourn her in sadness ... so let's dance with her, let's keep her on the island dance floors as much as in our hearts ... let's dedicate this day to our smiling Oi and let's stay together as a family, her Phangan family.
Let's try to tribute her with no sadness but just full power as she always loved to see us’.

‘You were the star and now really the star. Miss you and love you. R.I.P, Oi’. Toshi
We all are bonded beyond our comprehension, forever love to my sista, always with us’. Eri
It’s nice to see and hear the Koh Phangan family come together and support each other in sad times, there is so much love here and it is always very touching when we lose someone.
We are sure that Oi will live on in the hearts of others here, in the beautiful palm trees and ocean, in the music played and in the magical energy that is Koh Phangan.
‘Today, with tears in my eyes, I have to bid her Farewell, one of the very first friends I made since I've been here, and definitely one of the sweetest people I have ever been blessed to know.
She passed away yesterday evening from a Heart Attack, it was very quick and sudden.
Nitaya, you will always be an Icon of Koh Phangan❤
Your Beautiful Smile and your Loving Memory will stay in our Hearts forever!’. DJ Jo Moontribe
"She is in a better dimension now, and it is the most beautiful death one can experience!" Well, the last time I was as sad as 2006, was on this Monday, my personal 9/11 of 2017, when Nitaya died. May she find soon a next gracious soul to reincarnate as the Empress of Hearts, that she was for all of those, who knew her. Thank you all again! - Mario Antonio Soldo
R.I.P., beautiful soul! Thank you for all the wonderful moments. You are a shining star, and you will be missed forever.
My deepest condolences to Tee, Gib, and all of your family and friends.
