Rest In Peace: Popular Nigerian Singer, Goldie Is Dead

The entire Nigerian entertainment and Africa entertainment industries were thrown into mourning on Valentine's day when the sad and sudden death of popular singer and former big brother housemate, Singer Goldie was announced. 

Goldie died last night at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island in Lagos few hours after she came back from the US, where she attended the just concluded Grammy Awards....click HERE to see pics of Goldie at the Grammys.

 May gentle soul rest in peace, Amen!

Read the press statement issued by the President of Kennis Music, Keke Ogungbe, midnight Thursday ....after the cut: 
 “With a deep sense of loss, we announce the shocking death of our darling music star, Goldie Harvey. Goldie, 31, died on Thursday after she complained of a severe headache shortly after her arrival from the United States where she went to witness the Grammy Award. She was rushed from her Park View, Ikoyi, Lagos residence to her official hospital, Reddington, Victoria Island, Lagos, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival at exactly 7:30pm in the evening. 
We consider this period a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance in which she passed away; the abundance of talent she exhibited in her short but eventful music career and the various opportunities her trip to the United States of America would have availed her. She is survived by her father, step- mother, brothers and sisters. We deeply sympathise with her family and fans all over the world and very grateful to all and sundry, especially, the vibrant Nigerian media for their concern and prompt reportage. 
We shall keep everybody informed as events unfold as we are devastated by the sudden loss.” Meanwhile, the remains of Goldie who hails from Ekiti State has been deposited at the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos. 
Goldie represented Nigeria at the Big Brother Star Game in 2012. Her latest effort, she described as three nawti singles from her forthcoming African Invasion album are “Skibo”. “Miliki” and ” Got To Have It,” presently enjoying heavy rotations on radio and TV stations across the continent. 
Burial arrangements will be announced by the family. May her soul rest in peace.
Adieu Goldie!!!
