In a swift dimension, some insiders secretly revealed to us that Derenle, the ‘crazy one’ first put a call to Linda Ikeji, the lady blogger and informed her of the rumored death of the sexy singer, Goldie, and it’s like, why Linda and not her parents. Though, we later gathered that her step mother confirmed her death.
Kennis Music, the label of musician and Big Brother Africa star, Goldie, has released an official statement into the circumstance that led to the death of the star.
Signed by the CEO of Kennis Music, Kenny Ogungbe (pictured with the late singer), the statement said Goldie died shortly after returning to Nigeria on Thursday, after witnessing the Grammy’s in the USA over the weekend.
Below is the official statement by Kennis Music:
“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.”
Goldie shot to fame across the continent when she represented Nigeria at last year’s Big Brother Africa reality show dubbed Big Brother Africa Stargame.
Known for her strength and firmness, she disappointed many after she appeared to be weak in the house, and was frequently ‘used’ by Kenyan housemate Prezzo.
After Big Brother, Goldie and Prezzo visited each other in their country and even went to the US together to attend a Jay Z concert.
Prezzo is yet to make an official statement on the death of Goldie, which has shocked the continent and fans of Big Brother Africa.
