Nigerian pop singer and former Big Brother Africa Housemate Goldie Harvey, 31,  known in showbiz as GOLDIE is reported dead.

Goldie died on Thursday night at Reddington Hospital, in Victoria Island, Lagos after she was rushed there, following headache complaints.

What has shocked many about the singer’s death is that, she attended the recently held Grammy Awards in USA.

Goldie was a housemate on Big Brother Africa in 2012-Stargame where she met Kenyan musician Prezzo with whom she had an on-again off-again relationship.

Her death has been confirmed through a statement by his record label signed by Keke Ogungbe, President, Kennis Music. The statement reads;

“On behalf of Kennis Music, I’m sad to  officially confirm the shocking and untimely  passage of Nigeria’s pop star, Goldie Harvey.  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 at her Park View, Ikoyi, Lagos residence  shortly after her arrival from the United States where she went to witness the Grammy Award. She was rushed to her official hospital, Reddington, Victoria Island, Lagos, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.

We consider this period  a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance Goldie passed away, the abundance of talent she has 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 still  devasted by the sudden loss.”

Meanwhile, the remains of  Goldie, who hails from Ekiti State has been deposited in the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos…

Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey was born in the early 1980s to very educated and successful parents.

The first of four kids, Goldie attended the Green Springs Montessori Primary School and St. John’s College, Palm Groove, in Lagos.

Her music career remotely kicked off at the University of Sunderland where she was admitted to study Business Management.

Goldie was signed on to Kennis Music in 2010.

A few months later, she released her acclaimed debut titled, ‘Gold’.

Her hit songs include ‘You Know It’, ‘Jawo Jawo’ and DTMB (Don’t Touch My Body).

Goldie has so far received a total of 10 awards, including Exquisite Lady of the year, Best Female Artiste award and City People Best Female Artiste of the year.

She has also been inducted as a Federal Celebrity Special Marshal, alongside other notable Nigerian Celebrities. The Law Students Society of the Obafemi Awolowo University recently issued her an Award for Musical Excellence under the category of Best Female Artiste of the Year.

She has also been conferred a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace by the Federal Government.

Her latest effort, she described as  three nawti singles from her forthcoming  African Invasion album are “Skibo”. “Miliki” and ” Got To Have It,”  are presently enjoying  heavy rotations  on radio and TV stations across  the continent.

Burial arrangements will be announced by the family.  R.I.P Goldie…

    Indeed this is unfortunate, and truly very sad and sudden. Life is so unpredictable. Here today, gone tomorrow. Such a talent gone too soon. Rest in peace with the Lord. Did she probably have some illness that was overlooked? That is so strange to just die of a headache.
