Goldie passes on
It is with a heavy heart and gratitude to God for a life well spent that we announce the death of music star and former Big Brother Africa contestant Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey, also known by the stage name Goldie.
She died last night at Reddington Hospital and it is unclear what went wrong. She had just returned from the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
Before her death, Goldie had churned out hits like "Don't touch my body" and more recently "Skibobo" on the Kennis music label.
Goldie was a great artist, full of life and capable of brightening up any environment that she was.
She had visited us quite recently on the Beat and Naija FM stations where she talked about her life, quirky dress sense, upcoming projects and more.

She also visited our sister station Naija FM where she taught them how to dance Skibobo
She leaves behind a family, especially her grandmother to whom she was very close and her adoring fans. We're all still shocked by her death
