RIP Goldie Harvey! Kennis Music Releases Offcial Statement

The cause of Goldie's death is still not certain, but multiple sources at the hospital confirmed that she slumped shortly after she returned from Los Angeles where she attended the just concluded Grammy Awards and was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead few mins later.

 Her corpse has been deposited at the morgue in Ikeja General Hospital. This was around 2am this morning. Her music label boss, Kenny, D1, ID Ogungbe, Denrele, Karen, Uti and Yvonne ‘Vixen’ Ekwere were all present at the scene.

READ Kennis Music Official Statement Below;

“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. Continue after the cut


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.”

Meanwhile, the remains of Goldie who hails from Ekiti State has been deposited at the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos. Goldie represented Nigeria at the Big Brother Star Game in 2012. 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 heavy rotations on radio and TV stations across the continent. Burial arrangements will be announced by the family. May her soul rest in peace.

Adieu Goldie!!!

    5. Have you not read that the blood clot resulting from the long journey she had from LA caused it?

    6. lagos is my home15 February, 2013 12:10

      Grammy has nothing to do with the time when the Lord calls u. If u like hide in a cage when ur time is up it is up

      That been said , long flights do have complication blc u r not moving but sitting for a long time. That would explain the blood clot and suspected Pulmonary Embolism speculation. But without autopsy that will forever be "just speculation" ..its best to get up and walk round a bit when u r on a long flight especially economy flyers like me ..
      It is still so sad and shocking.May God accept her soul. Amen

      Please follow her to the grave and continue the foolish age argument with her there. Oponu jatijati. I doubt anybody in your family has a body as good as hers was or a face as youthful.

    1. @07:41, Touche! I had that feeling too but didn't want to say it 'cos the shock is just too much. She did a lot of things in her last days, traveling a lot, going to the grammies, et al. I guess life has a way of giving you the chance to live out your dreams and fantasies before your death. I still can't believe this girl is dead sha. There are some people you look at and you're like they'll be here for the rest of humanity, they can't die. But God has just proved me wrong. Rest in Peace Goldie

    2. Now Goldie is dead, she has turned to everyone's favorite person when you guys were insulting the hell out of her, maybe you were hoping she would live forever... or what? You think she never read blogs? Hypocrisy. We Nigerians neva celebrate our own until they die. Stop deceiving yourselves. God is watching.

      May God grant her family and friends the strength to bear this great loss. Amen.

    3. Ahdaisy pls go and sit down! What do u expect? U want people to still be yabbing d way she dresses abi?? U people should stop talking like morons for once jare! Ishhh! #GoldieRip

      Delete
    4. Anon, thank you for buttressing my point. People mindlessly insult others, then when the person dies, they show so much love that could have made the person a happier person while alive. No one said they should keep yabbing her. My point is, we should learn to show more of love to people irrespective of who they are or what they have done, while they are alive because once they stop breathing no amount of love can bring them back. It is a call to change.

      Abi, is guilty conscience worrying you?

      Delete
    5. Look my dear,everyone can't like u,everyone can't show u love,dats life!.. I think d main root of d tongue lashing she got from people was how she prezzo treat her in big brother's house.. For christ sake most people were irritated and made their points clear..I dnt like the way people are now talking dat they should have showed her love blah blah blah..Even you,weren't u irritated the way she was all over prezzo and crying seriously for him,well all that is gone now... A yoruba adage says: ta ba n ja biti kaku ko (if we are not on talking terms,e no reach death now).. As long as u are human,if someone dies,it automatically nulifies whatever u have against the person...Everyone showing some form of sympathy in one way or the other might not like one or two things about her but don't wish her dead...for christ sake,d lady was still in her prime,full of life..its just sad.. I just don't see the point y'all lots are trying to make,everyone dat yabbed her one way or the other never wished her death and ofcourse she didn't die as a result of all their critisism,so just relax.. All we can do now is just to pray and hope she's resting peacefully in d bossom of the lord...#RipGoldie

  42. I had a very terrible night filled with the thought of her passage, just couldn't sleep with the suddenness of her death. I hope a thorough autopsy is conducted to solve this puzzle for us all. This girl was young and full of life!!! Could it have being over-work that killed her, or poison, or pneumonia as speculated?
    Oh my dear Goldie, my heart aches for you. A promising future stolen, I hope she has given her life to Christ before this sorrowful occurrence. From dust we came and to dust shall we return. Rest in peace angel.

  46. This girl desperately needed love so bad and she was ignored.
    She wasn't a happy girl at all
    and I repent of every negative comment I dropped concerning her when she was alive
    we went to primary school together and she tried to reach out to me in real life and I blocked her.
    Lord forgive me
    Its important we try to judge people less , now my conscience is killing me,
    what if I had gotten closer to her?
    what if I had chosen to love her the way she ought to have been loved?
    what if I preached Jesus to her?
    Lord have mercy on my soul, this is so sad!

  54. All of una, wey have never spoken good about this girl, shame and fear go catch una now. It will be RIP, ehya, such a beautiful woman, and co and co. It is so sad that this post will probably the only post ever posted on BN and on other blogs that only good things will be said about her. Just sad indeed, that it will take her dying for people to ever say something good related to news about her. Let’s be careful with the way we just spew out bile and hateful comments. Life is too short and precious, and we don’t know tomorrow. 6 hours ago she was still responding to tweets from fans, and she sounded like a sweet person, who was just never understood or given a break by some sad, hateful people. If you cant say something nice, don’t say anything at all. Life is too short, to be spent simply hating and typing out trash about someone you don’t know, and who may likely read your comments. I hope y’all guilty of this feel a little bad now and will pipe down a bit now, and rethink and stop the bashing of other celebs – Toke and Karen come to mind. peace be unto you.

  56. Where's the love towards Goldie coming from all of a sudden? O_o you dirty hypocrites!!!!! I still hope this is all such a weird phase which will pass and show she's still alive. Y'all should be ashamed of urselves. You crucify her on any post about her, even when u can't place a single point to what exactly she did to make u hate her so much. Bunch of retards!!! You all should be really ashamed.

    Before u jump on my throat. Get it into ur sleazy brains that I am not forming last minute voltron. I was always on the defensive for her esp on the BBA forum (my posts are still there to clear ur doubts). Keep insulting these celebs like they have no feelings or they are super human.
