Sensational singer, and Nigeria’s representative at the last edition of Big Brother Africa (BBA), Goldie Harvey is dead. She died yesterday at the age of 29.
Reports say the singer, who just returned from the Grammy awards in US, died a few hours after, at the Reddington Hospital, Victoria Island. “She was full of life upon her return, but suddenly, something went tragically wrong,” said a source, who added that she died in the arms of herbest friend, Denrele Edun, former presenter with Sound City music channel.
Kenny Ogungbe, her label boss, could not be reached on telephone as at the time of this report, but Ellam A. Abass, Artiste and Repertoire Manager at Kennis Music, confirmed that the artiste was indeed, dead.
Details of her death is still sketchy asat the time of this report.
As a musician, Goldie started her career in London, with a pop rock group. Her impact in the last BBA House was remarkable, in view of her betrayal by Kenyan Housemate, Prezzo, with whom she had an intimatemoment.
“I can’t define my relationship with Prezzo, but I do know that in the house I came to care for him very much. He was the closest person to me in the house. I never saw any of these things that people outside saw. I am almost not believing it somewhat, but I hold no grudges against him. I still think he’s a great individual and at theend of the day, such is life,” the singerhad said in an interview after her eviction from the house.
One of Goldie’s strong wishes was to raise her late mum from death, this, she said to The Nation in a recent interview. MAY HER SOUL RIP
