Terrible news this evening.
We have received reports that singer and reality TV star, Goldie Harvey has passed on this evening. We had earlier confirmed that she was in a Lagos hospital, after having slumped and gone into a coma.
She is said to have complained of pain in her head.
According to a publicist to Prezzo, who has been romantically linlked to the singer, Ms. Harvey died this evening in Lagos shortly after her return from the United States where she attended a Grammy Awards event. “It’s sad, sad news,” she told our correspondent.
The blogger, Linda Ikeji has put up a post on the sad event:
I’m in shock. Just got a call from her best friend and my close friend, Denrele Edun. He told me Goldie died a few minutes ago in his arms at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island. Goldie just came back from the US today he said, and was so full of life, then something went tragically wrong. Will get all the details from him in a bit, he had to switch off his phone. I’m shaking so bad. She and I had a conversation a few days ago while she was in the US. Oh dear Lord. Is this how people die? May her soul rest in peace..Amen.
Calls to Edun’s phone have gone unanswered, as well as calls to her label, Kennis Music.
We shall keep you updated.
