With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes I write this report. Singer Goldie has passed on. Denrele Edun, her close friend confirmed it. According to Denrele, Goldie died
on Thursday night, at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island.

Goldie, who just came back from the US on the 13th of February full of life, suddenly, something went tragically wrong.

This was further confirmed by the CEO of Kennis Music, the label Goldie was signed on, Kenny Ogungbe in a statement he issued detailing the final hours of the late singer.
Quoting Kennis Music CEO’s statement…“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’s remains have been deposited at the mortuary.

May her soul rest in peace…Amen.
