Goldie Harvey Passes Away

Hip-hop artiste and Nigeria’s representative at the last Big Brother Africa Star Game reality show; Goldie is dead. Goldie passed away on Thursday night shortly after she returned from the US where she attended the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Although details of the cause of her death are yet to be ascertained, the musician who is famed for her renaissance style, died at Reddington Hospital, in Victoria Island, Lagos.

She was said to have been rushed to the hospital after she complained of a migraine and then gave up the ghost in the hands of her friend and Channel O Veejay; Denrele Edun, who was in the hospital with her.

Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey was signed on to Kennis Music Record label in 2010 and the deal has since re-launched her music career with the release of her acclaimed debut titled, ‘Gold’.

The album had hit songs including ‘You Know It’, ‘Jawo Jawo’ and ‘Don’t Touch My Body’.

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

She was reported to be working on collaborating with American Hip-Hop artiste; Keri Hilson, which was arranged during her trip to the US for the Grammy Awards.

Confirming her demise, the President of Kennis Music, Keke Ogungbe, in a statement on Thursday night stated that “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.”

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

She is also survived by her father and step- mother.

    i wonder why bad things happen to good people… may her gentle soul rest in peace!

  • Kayode Obafemi

    A great entertainer and performer,  lived a short but eventful life, i m not sure she left any child.  May her gentle soul rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.  As for her parents, I pray that God in His infinite mercies be your comfort and give you the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, Amen.  To her friends, lovers, fans, colleagues and other extended relatives, we need to know that ‘Death will come, when it will come says William Shakespeare.  Death is inevitable that is why we must watch what we do, what we say and our actions because when we go back to our creator we shall render accounts of events of our lives to God.  Once again, I pray that God grants Goldie a peaceful rest.

    What a tragedy! Life is full of so many unresolved riddles but we should thank God for her life.Never knew or heard of her before now,but from the images l’ve seen so far,she had class,knew he onions very well and completely dazzled and touched the lives of those who either worked,collaborated or knw her.Death where is thy sting? where is your victory? May God 4give her imperfections & let her soul rest in perfect peace.Her’s is a lession that the world is a stage & we all have our different parts to play.But we must also remember the ONE who is the author and perfecter of our faith,it is to Him we must give account of our stewardship.
