One of Africa’s most gifted and popular rappers, Navio has joined the rest of Africa to mourn the sudden death of Nigerian musician also Big Brother Stargame celebrity Goldie Harvey.
In a Facebook post, the Kata musician described Goldie as his little sister who believed in a bigger Africa.
“My little sister has passed away. Goldie Harvey honorably represented Nigeria in the Big Brother House, and was on the fast track to changing the Industry. She believed in a bigger Africa that went beyond her own borders. Goldie Harvey was an inspiration to me. And will always be my little sis. Rest in Peace Babe,” Navio wrote, adding:
“This is hard to believe, still hard to register, you will be dearly missed. RIP Goldie.”
Navio joined millions of people across Africa and the world who have since morning been posting tribute messages to the fallen star.
Before her death, Goldie had recorded a song with Navio titled Miliki.
Goldie died last night, barely two days after she returned to Lagos after attending the Grammys in the United States of America. The hospital where the Nigerian star passed on has disclosed the cause of her death as pulmonary embolism.
Born Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey, Goldie was her stage name. She was Nigerian's version of Lady Gaga.
To confirm her death, this post was posted on her Facebook page this morning.
"It is with heavy heart that I have to inform you all that Goldie passed this night shortly after arriving Lagos from LA. May her soul rest in the eternal peace of the Lord."
May her soul rest in eternal peace.
